What is a Filing Skill Test?
The Filing Skill Test is designed to assess an individual’s ability to recognise and organise data in alphabetical, chronological or numerical order.

Candidates are presented with a variety of question styles including ranking, fill in the blanks and multiple choice question styles. Three subject areas are available: alphabetical only, numerical only and comprehensive. Comprehensive is a combined test for alphabetical, chronological and numerical filing.

Candidates are presented with 15 questions to complete in 15 minutes. Candidate’s responses are automatically marked and a point is awarded for each correctly answered question.

For some questions multiple answers may be required, the sum of these answers will result in one point awarded for the question. Skipped questions or those that are not taken will result in no point being awarded.
