EPSO-ovi testovi

multiple choice tests

EPSO-ovi natječaji ili postupci odabira uključuju niz testova za procjenu općih i posebnih kompetencija. 

Obavijest o natječaju jedini je službeni dokument koji sadržava detaljne informacije o pravim testovima koje EPSO organizira za određeni natječaj.
Svi natječaji objavljuju se u Službenom listu Europske unije.

Na ovoj stranici možete pronaći primjere testova koje EPSO može koristiti u natječajima, a jedini im je cilj bolje upoznati potencijalne kandidate sa strukturom i sadržajem testova. Svrha ove stranice nije priprema kandidata za uspješno polaganje testova u okviru naših postupaka odabira, jer EPSO na to nema pravo.

Više informacija o EPSO-ovim postupcima odabira možete pronaći i na stranici EPSO-ovi testovi: Mitovi i činjenice.

Za više informacija o kompetencijama koje institucije i tijela EU-a za koje EPSO radi smatraju ključnima za učinkovito obavljanje zadaća na bilo kojem radnom mjestu pozivamo vas da pročitate i EPSO-ov okvir općih kompetencija. Neke od tih kompetencija ocjenjuje EPSO u fazi odabira, a druge ocjenjuju institucije i tijela EU-a u fazi zapošljavanja.

EPSO-OVI TESTOVI – STARI MODEL NATJEČAJA (DO 2022.)

Main steps

  • Eligibility - evaluation of eligibility criteria and minimum requirements is done by the Selection Board.
  • Talent screener- only used for specialist competitions. In their application form, candidates are asked to list all their professional skills, experience and qualifications, which will then be assessed by the Selection Board.
  • Computer based multiple-choice tests - verbal, numerical, abstract reasoning tests and, for certain specialist competitions, tests on field-related competencies. All tests are remotely proctored. Please read carefully our notes on the IT Requirements for passing EPSO’s remotely proctored tests | EU Careers (europa.eu) and on Corporate computers and online tests | EU Careers (europa.eu).
  • Assessment centre phase - the final stage for the testing of general and field-related competencies under EPSO’s former competition model (published until the end of 2022). Through various tests, Selection Board members evaluate skills such as analysis and problem-solving, communicating, prioritising and organising, delivering quality and results, and others. The Assessment Centre tests are organised in an online format (remote) and the tests usually take place on different dates.

Competency test for each profile

Pending adjustments in the testing system, EPSO will be responsible only for organising the reasoning tests, but not for the competency tests. The recruiting services of the EU institutions will adapt the selection procedure of Contract Agents accordingly, and keep their relevant services informed of the applicable procedure.
