About the book

Many would-be entrants to the UK police service are unsuccessful because at some point in the assessment system they fail to demonstrate their full potential. Failure may be the result of a variety of factors such as: stress and anxiety; being unable to cope with the psychometric tests; having to perform in front of other people while being observed and evaluated.

If you are applying to join a police force in England or Wales, How to Pass the Police Selection System will help you to do your very best in every part of the assessment and achieve your goal. It provides essential guidance on all aspects of the selection process, including: entry requirements and competencies; completion of the application form; the assessment centre; psychometric tests; role-play and written exercises; the assessment centre interview and the job-related fitness test, making it the most comprehensive guide to the new police recruitment procedures available.
