Civil Service Fast Stream Online Tests

Anyone can apply as long as they meet the nationality requirements and have, or are expecting to have by September 2020, a degree that meets the grade/subject required for the scheme(s) they want to apply for. When you received your degree has no bearing on your application.

​If successful at the initial stage then your adjustments will be agreed with you for subsequent stages. We can make a range of provisions, including modified PCs, special chairs, trained readers and adjustment of time for the video interview and the Fast Stream Assessment Centre. If you need adjustments for a specialist assessment stage you will need to agree these with the scheme owner. Support arrangements are summarised here.

There are several phases in the application process. Some of these assessments are multimedia in that they present information in video, audio, graphical or visual formats as well as text.

If you are successful at the Video Interview for at least one of your chosen schemes, then you will be progressed to the next stage. For all Fast Stream schemes other than Generalist, Digital, Data and Technology and Human Resources, you will be asked to complete additional information online. For the Finance and Commercial schemes you will be asked to complete a numerical test after passing the Video Interview.

If you have schemes that require additional information, along with schemes that require a numerical test, you will need to complete both within 7 days before you can be considered to progress to the next stage. If you decide that you do not want to progress a particular scheme that requires additional information you can withdraw from that scheme, and the requirement to complete those scheme specific questions will be removed. This withdrawal also needs to be completed within the 7 days or your application will be expired.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide individual feedback at the additional information sift stage. We do provide feedback to candidates at the assessment stages, including detailed feedback following completion of the Fast Stream Assessment Centre (FSAC).

There are two Fast Stream Assessment Centres, one in Newcastle and one in London. We will ask you to attend one of these to undertake your assessment. When we select the most appropriate centre, we will take into account any workplace adjustments or mobility concerns raised.

You will be assigned to a particular date to undertake your Fast Stream Assessment Centre (FSAC). If you cannot make that date, then we will endeavour to re-arrange it so that you can complete your assessment centre on an alternative date where there are other slots available. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to meet all such requests.

We will also consider deferral, regardless of scheme, based on exceptional personal circumstances such as illness or bereavement. If you think you may need to defer for any of these reasons, you will be able to request this following your offer of a place on the Fast Stream and this will be considered on a case by case basis.

Many Civil Servants, including some in senior positions, work outside the South East. The majority of Fast Streamers are currently based in London, but opportunities are available in different parts of the UK. However please note that we cannot guarantee suitable posts will be available in every location.

We recognise that candidates who have progressed through several stages of our rigorous process, but are not offered a Fast Stream post, are talented graduates with a range of strengths and skills we need in our workforce. We subsequently appoint a proportion of these candidates in merit order at Executive Officer and Higher Executive Officer grade, depending on how far they progressed in the Fast Stream process. Candidates will be contacted directly from the Direct Appointment Team if this opportunity is being offered to you. You will not need to apply for the Direct Appointment Scheme separately.

What are the stages of the application process? There are several phases in the application process. Some of these assessments are multimedia in that they present information in video, audio, graphical or visual formats as well as text. The Online Tests consist of Work Style Questionnaires and multimedia Situational Judgement Questionnaires (SJQ). These are multiple-choice assessments. The Work Based Scenarios consist of the Case Study and Learning Assessments. Both use multimedia and both are multiple choice as well. The Video Interview involves responding to a series of pre-set questions, which are recorded and subsequently evaluated by an assessor. Additional Information applies for selected schemes only and, depending on the specific schemes you have chosen, there may be additional information to be completed, an intermediate sift process, or a numerical test to take. If you pass these stages then you will be invited to attend a half day Assessment Centre. The Fast Stream Assessment Centre (FSAC) reflects some of the key elements of a Fast Stream role and will consist of a leadership exercise, a group exercise and a written analysis exercise. Most schemes will then require a final selection stage; we will ask you to attend this final assessment if you reach the required standard at the assessment centre.

Should you pass the Online Tests you will have an additional 5 days to complete the Work Based Scenarios, which are not timed. Should you pass the Work Based Scenarios you will have an additional 5 days to complete the video interview, which will take 25 minutes. Should you pass the Video Interview you will then have an additional 7 days to complete any required additional information sections and/or numerical test. The next stage, the Fast Stream Assessment Centre, takes 5 hours. *All exercises must be completed before the specific expiry time given to you and please remember to check your junk mail for email notifications.

How many schemes can I select? You can select up to four schemes that you are eligible for. You need to specify your preferences in the order you want them to be considered, as you will not be able to add to or change your preference order once you have selected them. If you are successful in your application to your first preference scheme you will be appointed to that scheme; if you are not successful in your application to your first preference scheme but you are successful in your application to your second preference scheme you will be appointed to that scheme; and so on. So, please choose the order of your schemes carefully! Please note that you will only be able to withdraw from a scheme selection before you are invited to the Fast Stream Assessment Centre (FSAC). Once you have been invited to FSAC you will be unable to withdraw from any scheme. We therefore encourage you to select your scheme preferences carefully, focusing on eligibility requirements for each scheme and researching the information available.

Why didn’t I pass the Video Interview for my first choice of scheme, but did pass for others? If you have been successful, it might not necessarily be for your first choice of scheme. This is because each scheme has its own unique pass mark (set based on number of applicants and expectations/requirements of the specific schemes). If you do not meet the pass mark set for your first choice of scheme, you will be considered for the second; if you do not meet the pass mark set for the second, you will be considered for the third, and so on.

Can I get feedback following completion and sifting of the additional information form? Unfortunately, we are unable to provide individual feedback at the additional information sift stage. We do provide feedback to candidates at the assessment stages, including detailed feedback following completion of the Fast Stream Assessment Centre (FSAC).

Where will I attend the Fast Stream Assessment Centre? There are two Fast Stream Assessment Centres, one in Newcastle and one in London. We will ask you to attend one of these to undertake your assessment. When we select the most appropriate centre, we will take into account any workplace adjustments or mobility concerns raised.

Will there be flexibility regarding the date of the Assessment Centre that I can go to? You will be assigned to a particular date to undertake your Fast Stream Assessment Centre (FSAC). If you cannot make that date, then we will endeavour to re-arrange it so that you can complete your assessment centre on an alternative date where there are other slots available. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to meet all such requests.

Will I have to work in London? Many Civil Servants, including some in senior positions, work outside the South East. The majority of Fast Streamers are currently based in London, but opportunities are available in different parts of the UK. However please note that we cannot guarantee suitable posts will be available in every location.

What is the Direct Appointment Scheme? We recognise that candidates who have progressed through several stages of our rigorous process, but are not offered a Fast Stream post, are talented graduates with a range of strengths and skills we need in our workforce. We subsequently appoint a proportion of these candidates in merit order at Executive Officer and Higher Executive Officer grade, depending on how far they progressed in the Fast Stream process. Candidates will be contacted directly from the Direct Appointment Team if this opportunity is being offered to you. You will not need to apply for the Direct Appointment Scheme separately.

Hi, I’m Jenny and I have just started my second year on the Digital and Technology Fast Stream. I was previously a tech recruiter and in another previous life, a politics student.

Take time to read up on the range of streams available, as you will be asked to rank the ones you wish to apply for. Each one will have different entry requirements, so double check you are eligible for them. I would advise you apply for several streams if you are not sure which ones you want to do straight away.

First thing you need to do is block out time in your diary for this, put your phone on silent and find a quiet room. Once you start the e-tray exercise, you can’t pause or go back on exercise.

Again, if you search online, there are plenty of practice tests you can use to get an idea of what to expect. If you are at university, it is worth asking the Careers teams about e-tray workshops. I attended one when I was at university run by one of the Big 4 (I cannot for the life of me remember which firm).

To prep for this, look at the competencies you will be evaluated on and come up with at least two different examples you have displayed a competency. Use the STAR technique to structure your answers. Also, remember to answer the question you have been asked, not the question you wanted to have been asked. Here is a brief guide on competencies from Civil Service Resourcing.

We often get emails from people asking for help at their Fast Stream assessment centre. They want to know the ‘short cuts’ to success, but honestly, there are none. It’s boring, we know, but the ‘secret’ to success at the Fast Stream assessment centre is simply lots and lots of preparation.

Task 1 – You will be given information from a variety of sources, on two possible projects. Your task will be to analyse both sets of information, and to choose which project you would recommend.

Your written report should show strong, clear arguments for your recommendation as this is what you will be assessed on. (Your choice of project is less important, it is the arguments that matter most.).

It’s important to remember the tests are timed and you are being benchmarked against the other candidates so literally every second counts.

This is a brilliant way of framing your answers for maximum impact. It takes practice though, so run through your example answers again and again. (Sub-vocalising them in your head doesn’t work as well, trust us!).

No one wants to work with a moaner. Don’t complain about the traffic that morning, or being hot on the tube, or the weather… Or anything! Positivity is the order of the day at the Civil Service Fast Stream assessment centre. Speak with enthusiasm and show hunger for your future career.

Graduate Schemes in Civil Service are among one of the most sought after, due to a high profile and prestigious job careers they offer. Every year more than ten thousand people are applying for about 1000 available vacancies. As soon as they got in, they embark on a journey, that is both demanding and rewarding.

If you want to be one of the few who will know how to address the complex issues that we face as a nation, look at the short descriptions of the scheme below. While preparing your strategy, please bear in mind that The Application Process for each position will vary and not all of the steps will apply for the job position you are applying for.

Before you skip this section, we have to clarify – it’s not just the ‘e-mail skills’, so you might want to consider preparing for this exercise as well. In fact, rather than checking your e-mail literacy Civil Service E-Tray Exercise is a simulated work task measuring your probable performance in the public service sector. The exercise will correspond with your future day- to- day responsibilities, as it is tailored both to the wider civil service framework and to the very specific role you are applying for.

One of the possible scenarios might be a situation when you receive a bunch of e-mails which you are expected to read and respond to while proving ability to prioritise and process information. Bur rather than just checking if you can get hold of your inbox, it is your multitasking skills and ability to be organised under pressure that is being verified. This has to be done in a manner as if you have been an employed already. Since you pictured yourself joining the Civil Service, this shouldn’t be too complicated, however, to get that confidence you might want to consider practising a little bit before. Here’s the link how to do it.

Stating the obvious, you will need a PC equipped with a front-facing webcam, microphone, and good Internet connection. Although it might be tempting to wear casual clothes, stick to the formal dress code you would wear for a normal interview. Be professional – consider choosing a quiet environment to avoid any background noise and in a brightly lit room, so the interviewers could recognise you.

The Civil Service Situational Judgement Test is a set of questions assessing how you might react to hypothetical events and situations that might be encountered while performing your job as a civil servant. Based on your answers to these questions, it will be verified how aligned you are with values and behaviours respected and desired in the Civil Service. As a future civil servant, you will be accountable to the public, so you have to make sure you are familiar with the standards of the sector.

Whilst Situational Judgement Tests vary in form, usually, you will be presented with a number of descriptions to which you are obliged to provide an appropriate response from a multiple choice list. So, try to be as sensible as you can and use the full capacity of your emotional intelligence.

These tests concentrate on your ‘ people skills’ so, good communication and networking abilities should earn you a few points. However, the quite straightforward and simplistic formula of these tests can be misleading. In any Situational Judgement Tests, there is a catch in the high probability of any of the presented answers. So although it is recommended to think in accordance with the promoted values outlined on the Civil Service’s profile, in order to really ace your performance you might want to work on your situational- judgement muscles while taking the mocking Civil Service Situational Judgement Tests.

As you probably aware, there are core values and standards of behaviour expected from all civil servants to uphold, regardless the sector’s path they are taking. The Civil Service Personality Test, therefore, aims at validating your dedication, commitment and most importantly ability to recognise these values and how probable is that you would likely to follow them.

If you are successful with the initial online stages, you will be invited to the half-day Civil Service Assessment Centre in one of the assessment centres in either London or Newcastle. However, for some of you, this is not the end of the journey just yet. Depending on the specific role you are applying for, you might be further asked to attend the Final Assessment Centre. But let’s see what you need to pass this stage.

a) Written Assignment – you will be given a plethora of reading related to the specific domain of the Graduate Scheme you are applying for. This could be for example a voluminous report on National Insurance Health Funding on which you will have to write a short brief. So it’s a time pressure tasks, that assesses not only your verbal reasoning, and analytical skills but also ability to keep your head while in a stressful situation.

b) Presentation – This stage could take two forms. You might be given a topic to research and prepare your presentation beforehand, or you will be supplied with materials during the actual assessment centre and have limited time to prepare. Anyhow, it is important that you practice your presentation skills. If you are not a born speaker and feel like you could use a little bit more advice, you can check the Assessment Centre Guide, for more useful tips.

d) Group Exercise – As a civil servant, you would need to know how to make your own voice heard in a non- overbearing manner. These exercises will vary, but the general skills that the assessors are looking for is a good balance between teamwork and leadership skills. You might want everyone in the room to see your great leadership skills, but approach the group exercise rather as a test of your collaborative and teamwork abilities than a show of a directorship. One of the most probable ways of verifying these skills is through a group discussion on a divisive topic or a collaboration on a draft of a project.

e) Leadership Exercise and Role Play – You have might already be asked to give an example when you have demonstrated leadership skills, however, this probably was just a prelude to the Civil Service Leadership Exercise. Finally – it’s the time when everyone is interested in how you approach and solve the problem while at the same time delegating different tasks to your colleagues. These will be usually assessed through a role play relating to a type of situation that you would face as a civil servant in your department.

Unlike the regular Civil Service Assessment, this one will be more structured to your actual application profile as well as the part of the programme. All the information needed will be delivered to you before the actual meeting. Although it may sound like a ‘black box’ full of surprises, we are sure that if you have managed to get to this stage, everything should be fine now!.

Civil Service Video Interview If you are invited to the Civil Service Video Interview you will be provided with an access to a platform that will record your responses. Stating the obvious, you will need a PC equipped with a front-facing webcam, microphone, and good Internet connection. Although it might be tempting to wear casual clothes, stick to the formal dress code you would wear for a normal interview. Be professional – consider choosing a quiet environment to avoid any background noise and in a brightly lit room, so the interviewers could recognise you. If you are intimidated by the camera, you can always practice your answers beforehand. It will be a classical evaluative interview aimed at detecting your skills and strengths necessary for the role you have chosen to follow. Civil Service Situational Judgement Test The Civil Service Situational Judgement Test is a set of questions assessing how you might react to hypothetical events and situations that might be encountered while performing your job as a civil servant. Based on your answers to these questions, it will be verified how aligned you are with values and behaviours respected and desired in the Civil Service. As a future civil servant, you will be accountable to the public, so you have to make sure you are familiar with the standards of the sector. Whilst Situational Judgement Tests vary in form, usually, you will be presented with a number of descriptions to which you are obliged to provide an appropriate response from a multiple choice list. So, try to be as sensible as you can and use the full capacity of your emotional intelligence. These tests concentrate on your ‘ people skills’ so, good communication and networking abilities should earn you a few points. However, the quite straightforward and simplistic formula of these tests can be misleading. In any Situational Judgement Tests, there is a catch in the high probability of any of the presented answers. So although it is recommended to think in accordance with the promoted values outlined on the Civil Service’s profile, in order to really ace your performance you might want to work on your situational- judgement muscles while taking the mocking Civil Service Situational Judgement Tests. Civil Service Personality Test As you probably aware, there are core values and standards of behaviour expected from all civil servants to uphold, regardless the sector’s path they are taking. The Civil Service Personality Test, therefore, aims at validating your dedication, commitment and most importantly ability to recognise these values and how probable is that you would likely to follow them. The Civil Service Personality Test is a set of questions like any other Personality Tests, so there are no right or wrong answers, however, you are expected to demonstrate certain behaviours that would help you to achieve you the outlined tasks and will enable you to comply with the Civil Service Competency Framework. Civil Service Assessment Centre If you are successful with the initial online stages, you will be invited to the half-day Civil Service Assessment Centre in one of the assessment centres in either London or Newcastle. However, for some of you, this is not the end of the journey just yet. Depending on the specific role you are applying for, you might be further asked to attend the Final Assessment Centre. But let’s see what you need to pass this stage. a) Written Assignment – you will be given a plethora of reading related to the specific domain of the Graduate Scheme you are applying for. This could be for example a voluminous report on National Insurance Health Funding on which you will have to write a short brief. So it’s a time pressure tasks, that assesses not only your verbal reasoning, and analytical skills but also ability to keep your head while in a stressful situation. b) Presentation – This stage could take two forms. You might be given a topic to research and prepare your presentation beforehand, or you will be supplied with materials during the actual assessment centre and have limited time to prepare. Anyhow, it is important that you practice your presentation skills. If you are not a born speaker and feel like you could use a little bit more advice, you can check the Assessment Centre Guide, for more useful tips. c) Interview – Civil Service Interviews are usually standard competency based, panel interviews during which you will have to chat with more than one interviewer. You might also expect questions that will be related to the above-mentioned Civil Service Competency Framework. So thorough research on the desired values and behaviours at is absolutely compulsory if you want to outshine other candidates at this stage. d) Group Exercise – As a civil servant, you would need to know how to make your own voice heard in a non- overbearing manner. These exercises will vary, but the general skills that the assessors are looking for is a good balance between teamwork and leadership skills. You might want everyone in the room to see your great leadership skills, but approach the group exercise rather as a test of your collaborative and teamwork abilities than a show of a directorship. One of the most probable ways of verifying these skills is through a group discussion on a divisive topic or a collaboration on a draft of a project. e) Leadership Exercise and Role Play – You have might already be asked to give an example when you have demonstrated leadership skills, however, this probably was just a prelude to the Civil Service Leadership Exercise. Finally – it’s the time when everyone is interested in how you approach and solve the problem while at the same time delegating different tasks to your colleagues. These will be usually assessed through a role play relating to a type of situation that you would face as a civil servant in your department. Civil Service Final Selection Unlike the regular Civil Service Assessment, this one will be more structured to your actual application profile as well as the part of the programme. All the information needed will be delivered to you before the actual meeting. Although it may sound like a ‘black box’ full of surprises, we are sure that if you have managed to get to this stage, everything should be fine now!

Report 2 years ago #43 (Original post by Sam8s) Overall I’m really enjoying it. There are good parts and bad parts as with any job, but so far the good has outweighed the bad by a long shot. Back when I applied the application process was even longer than 3 months – you guys have it lucky! Even though it was long I’d still say the application process was still worth it, although it’s definitely a lot easier when you’ve already got a job or something to do while you’re waiting between stages. I’m on the Digital and Technology stream, which is essentially the Generalist scheme with a tech flavour. We often do very similar roles, and it’s still very focused on leadership rather than becoming a developer or something similar (they have other schemes for that). Hi Sam8s, Can you expand on the additional Technology schemes? I was looking at applying to the D&T Stream this year on the basis that it was focused on leadership and technology (I already work as a software engineer). From your post, it sounds like you don’t really get stuck into any of the dev work which I would miss should I get on to the stream.

From your post, it sounds like you don’t really get stuck into any of the dev work which I would miss should I get on to the stream. While it is a Digital & Technology focused stream, the aim of it is not to produce senior software developers/engineers. It’s more focused on developing leaders with digital expertise that are widely deployable within the Civil Service. That being said there is a lot of breadth in the roles you can take, for example you can request to be put in a more dev focused area. There are 8 areas in total however so it’ll be difficult to solely focus on that if that’s your aim (that being said there are people who have managed it, I know someone who has done nothing but Product Management for example.) I’ve gone into my placements with a good idea of what I want to get out of them and even when the template hasn’t exactly fit what I’m interested in I’ve managed to realign myself once in post. I do want to stress that while that’s been my experience it may be different for you or for others. If you DM me I’d be happy to go into more detail.

Report 2 years ago #46 (Original post by vbng) hey guys, applied last year but failed the judgement tests and i’m looking to apply again this year. Any advice on how to prepare for them? I’ll be starting the fast stream this year as a generalist. Situation judgement is about making decisions within the confines of the role that you are applying for. You might make different decisions if you were a SpAd rather than a civil servant, for example. The best advice is the read the civil service competency framework and embody those values/behaviours when thinking about your answers. I realise you might have done this when you did it before, but as it isn’t timed you can really think about the answers you’re giving.

Report 2 years ago #47 Just logged in to my Student Room account for the first time since early 2010 (before I started my undergraduate degree). Funny how things come full circle. Posting here as this thread looks like it’ll be very handy. To fund my Masters Degree (which I’ve just completed) I actually went to work for two years after my B.A., which means I have 2 years’ relevant work experience. However it also means I’m 25. Does age matter here, as I have heard some (private sector) graduate schemes want people straight out of Uni? I’m starting anew job in a few weeks at the council, will this Public Sector experience count for anything in my application? Additionally, does anyone have information on the schemes themselves? My dream is the FCO stream as I have foreign language skills and have lived abroad before, but I heard that is one of the more competitive streams. The other stream I was looking at is the Human Resources one, as I worked in HR during those two years (but don’t have any CIPD accreditation or anything). What are the chances of getting into one against the other? Should I apply for both, and in what order? Finally, I have applied to a direct entry job and failed on the psychometric tests. I passed the verbal and numerical reasoning tests but scored very poorly on the situational test.

Report 2 years ago #49 (Original post by NRasheed) Hi! Looking to apply this September for the Fast Stream programme. Would anyone be able to explain the whole process for me? It takes roughly about 3 months, if I’m correct? Any advise and information would be greatly appreciated!! The whole process takes a full year, not 3 months.

Report 2 years ago #52 (Original post by stefanya) Hi, I’m planning on applying for SDIP and FastStream – I’m in my final year of Uni (mature student) and working part-time. I live in Scotland – any Scottish (future) applicants around here? IF succesuful do we get placements in our city or we need to relocate? Not Scottish, but go to a Scottish uni, currently doing the SDIP at the Scottish government. It is very possible you will have to relocate. You can be placed in Edinburgh or Glasgow if you would like to stay in Scotland, but as you have likely guessed, most of the departments are in England, and most of the first placements do occur in London (according to my line manager, who is just finishing the Fast Stream herself).
