A few general guidelines for completing the assessment:

  • Follow the registration page and register as a new user.
  • There are no right/wrong answers. Do not see this as a test, just a way of assessing how you see things and approach problems.
  • Read the instruction pages carefully, there are timed questions, if you go past them you cannot go back. You only have one chance to complete the assessment.
  • The 1st section is the most challenging and is also timed, take notes right from the start! Do not let this section discourage you.
  • Please find the time to put aside 45 min to complete the assessment (without any distractions).

Please note that selecting ‘next’ on the assessment saves the current progress.

Please ensure that you do this before logging out. (It is recommended not to log out during a section that is timed, as indicated by a counter at the top of the page).
