Legal Proofreading Skill Test
What is a Legal Proofreading Skill Test?
The Legal Proofreading Skill Test is designed to test an individual’s ability to recognise spelling and grammatical errors from a sample of legal text.
Candidates are required to highlight and type corrections for any spelling or grammatical errors identified from within the legal text.
Candidates are presented with 1 question to complete within 15 minutes. Responses are automatically marked. A point is awarded for each correct highlight and an additional point is available for corrections. An incorrect selection will result in minus points being subtracted from the total score and missed errors will result in no point being awarded.
