Civil Service Officer

Immigration Officer


Increasingly in recent years Aptitude Tests are being used as part of the selection process for many careers. Two such careers are  Immigration Officer and the Civil Service Clerical Officer where the test determines whether or not applicants are cleared to the interview stage of the selection process. Performance of candidates in aptitude tests can be improved in a number of ways. These include exposure to tests (i.e. seeing tests in advance), by practice and by being taught good test technique. Throughout the course good test technique will be taught and developed.

Types of Tests Covered

  • Verbal Reasoning Tests
  • Numerical Reasoning
  • Clerical Checking

Emphasis will be placed on tests similar to those used in previous competitions and on tests  which assess skills relevant to the positions of Immigration Officer and Civil Service Clerical Officer

If for any reason the Immigration Officer and Civil Service Clerical Officer Test changes Test Preparations will make such amendments as are necessary to our preparation courses to ensure that we continue to deliver the highest quality programme possible.

A recent survey of previous Test Preparations course participants showed a 97% success rate at Stage 1 of the selection process, many of whom were in the top one hundred places.

Not only do we cover material very similar to what appears on the actual aptitude test but we also explain it in such a way that participants can apply what they learn to any type of questions which appear on the actual test.
