SJT, WCPT, WCT, GCT2 Study Materials
 

Our current, comprehensive, reputable Study Materials are designed to help you build skills and prepare quickly for officer-level Canadian government job competitions.

For over 25 years our study materials have enabled thousands of clients to obtain high test scores, learn about tricky Public Service evaluation methods, and succeed in getting to the interview stage for government jobs or promotions.

We take the SJT, WCPT, WCT and GCT2 tests ourselves and debrief with clients regularly so we can update our materials when changes occur. We hired people to work with us in test development who did so for the federal government, and our Director’s expertise in cognitive testing, writing exercises and behaviourally-based training makes our company the only proven source to help individuals in entry- to executive-level government competitions.

Situational Judgment Test (SJT)

To help you understand and perform well on the SJT which has been used since 2003, the Study Materials provide precise test-taking tips and practice materials. A 25-page intro explains how the SJT was developed, the corporate culture and values system underlying the “ideal world” of the test, tools to help frame and answer questions successfully, and definitions for the “competencies” evaluated in it are explained in detail. Two full-length, 100-question sample tests replicating the real SJT are provided for thorough practice and include answers at the back for each "most effective" and "least effective" option. No source other than our samples will prepare you properly for this test.

NOTE: The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) both have an entry-level Situational Judgement Test (SJT). Our SJT materials described above also prepare candidates for these tests—CRA’s Situational Judgement Test Recruitment Version (SJT-R, C301) and CFIA’s Online Situational Judgement Test (SJT). For further information, email us at info@publicserviceexamprep.com.

Written Communication Proficiency Test (WCPT)

To get you accustomed to handling this intensive language usage exercise in place since 2000, three full-length, 50-question sample tests replicating the WCPT are provided for repeated practice. An answer key is included for each sample question. It identifies the grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, tone, title, logical ordering or summary issue being tested, and directs you to a single source where you can quickly learn to correct problems affecting your performance. Useful tips to handle questions quicker and more effectively are included in our test-taking instructions. No source other than our samples will prepare you properly for this test.

Written Communication Test (WCT)

To enable you to understand the basis of the WCT, know how it is marked and how to practise under test conditions, the Study Materials contain expert instructions to plan and write a summary in the “government style”. Three sample documents to be summarized, and examples of summaries for them which you can compare to your practice drafts, are provided. Extra tools include one poorly done summary to see where pitfalls can occur, and two actual government summary documents to review for tone, style and structure. No source other than our samples will prepare you properly for this test.

General Competency Test: Level 2 (GCT2)

To show you the fundamentals underlying the GCT2 and help you perform well on it for your officer-level competition, our sample materials are comprehensive. The PDF package includes three 45-question practice tests which replicate the form, mix and substance of the five types of questions in the actual GCT2. Proven techniques to break down each kind of question quickly are provided, and a detailed explanation of each answer is given. No source other than our samples will prepare you properly for this test.
