Chloe -

One of the only ways you can prep for the CASPer test is by going through some sample scenarios. You may already be aware of this, but there are sample scenarios on the CASPer website, which is a great place to start: - see the question about a sample test

You can also find practice scenarios on other sites. I would caution you that these are not official, so they might not match the real test format or style, but they can be generally helpful to get some additional scenarios running through your head.

Lastly, because the website is very transparent about what is being assessed on the CASPer test (the 10 people skills listed on the homepage of their website), you can think of some of your own scenarios as well.

Overall keep in mind that, like it says on their website, situational judgement tests like CASPer are considered “study proof” because it is almost impossible that you will prepare for the exact scenario you receive on the test, and that is intentional. All the other elements of your application are study-based, and this is meant be different!

Best of luck!!

Thank you so much!! Chloe T.

Hi Chloe! I would check out BeMo counseling and their website. I think you pay for counseling sessions for help with the exam, but they have videos on Youtube as well and they really give helpful tips. In addition, you register for the test with for what I remember and there are helpful tips on the website, I attached a link below. There's also some practice scenarios there! I think it's important to search for resources that are low cost or free because there are many that can help you! I would recommend to check out the ones I mentioned and from my own experience don't worry about spelling because the test graders know it's timed and also remain calm and read the all the questions and then take a couple seconds to think about your answer. If you see a feasible answer go for that first, it will allow you to stay calm and collect your thoughts but you want to make sure you answer every question on there, you get 5 mins/scenario, after the scenario is presented the timer begins to answer the questions!

Best of luck!
