What happens if I don't pass the selection tests?
If you fail the reasoning tests, the competency* test that you took at the same time will not be marked.
If you pass the reasoning tests, but fail the competency* test, your reasoning tests results will nevertheless remain valid.
Moreover, once you fail a test, the following rules apply:
- If you fail the reasoning test, you cannot be invited to take another reasoning test for the same or higher function group for the next 6 months. However, you can still be invited to take reasoning tests for lower function groups.
- If you fail the competency* test, you cannot be invited to take another competency* test for the next 6 months in the same profile at the same or higher function group. However, you may still take competency* tests for the same profile for a lower function group or for a different profile.
The 6-month period is counted from the day when the results are published in your EPSO Account.
Please note that the recruiting services are not obliged to invite you for re-testing, after the 6-month period is over.
*Candidates for linguistic profiles (proofreaders and translators) sit a language comprehension test instead of a competency test.
