Written Exam

Post by Franek38 » 10 Mar 2019, 19:36

Hi Everyone,

After several unsuccessful applications, I have been shortlisted for a written examination for a P4 position at UNECE. Just to be sure that I prepare myself properly: the written exam seems to comprise a 35-question multiple choice test followed by a 3-question essay test (all in 90 minutes). Do you have any idea how different topics may be distributed between the 2 parts: e.g. the MCQ test is more about the UN/UNECE and the essay about the "core" activities in relation to the specific position OR all parts are usually directly targeting the "core" competencies for the position?

This is a GREAT website and forum. I just had a look at a few threads and that is particularly helpful!

Thanks a lot for your feedback.

I recently completed a written test. It was a 30 MCQ test. It had to be completed in 30 minutes. Questions targeted the core competencies of the position.

Hope this info is useful.
