What are the Computer Based Tests?

Imported from Anglo-Saxon countries, computer reasoning tests allow candidates to be assessed on their skills in a stressful situation without taking knowledge into account.

Computer tests are multiple choice questions where the candidate must answer very quickly by selecting the answer (s) that they deem right. The challenges of these tests are the management of time, stress and the ability to find  answers logically, thanks to fast reading (verbal reasoning), visual logic (abstract reasoning), reading numerical information and mathematics ( numerical reasoning). The CAST and Competition will be choosing the candidates with the best results.

It is therefore essential to train for the test of computer reasoning MCQs because it is with training that you will progress. You can see what the EPSO exam software looks like on this official link.

Please note: EPSO tests are now carried out remotely on your private computer, not your work computer (see the EPSO article on this subject).
