In order to define the threshold, candidates' scores are ranked in descending order. The board then selects the top ranking candidates that can be invited to the next stage of the competition (see question: "how many candidates will go from TS to the next stage"). The threshold is the score of the last candidate on this list.
Talent Screener is designed to help the selection boards of competitions for specialist profiles identify the candidates whose profile best matches the duties and selection criteria set out in the competition notice.You will have to answer a series of questions in the talent screener section of the online application form.

Make it clear for the selection board to assess whether you match the criteria specified for the profile sought. By structuring your responses around these criteria, you will make your Talent Screener more relevant and easier to assess.Pay particular attention to what is asked and respond accordingly.

Each of the candidate's responses will be awarded between 0 and 4 points.
The points are multiplied by the 'weighting' and added up to give a score. This score is ranked against other candidates' scores to identify which candidate profiles best match the duties to be performed.
