About 100-plus others, if you're taking it in the CSC lecture room. However the PSC is pretty flexible--I applied as an about-to-graduate college student so I just took my latest one in The Treasury building; it was just me and one other person taking the test at a big oak table in a boardroom.

As for what to bring, I can't remember. Standard stationery, no calculator. Jacket if you're afriad of cold. You may need your IC and/or driver's licence too to verify your identity.

the questions given are okay...but not the time allocated.

eg. for math, 32 questions in 20 min + the reading of the 2 pages of instructions are included in the duration given. So it's really a mad rush.

for me, I didn't apply for the scholarship; the invitation letter said that i was nominated by the school. but I had previously told my college counsellor that I'm interested in PSC cos I wanted to apply for an internship.

Oh I see... hope everything went well with your tests and all that! I bet it must have been a experience for you

if we are invited to take the psychometric assessment, does that mean that we will definitely have an interview?

thanks =)

No. The two stages are independent of each other.

Ah I see.. thank you for the clarification.

But do you have any idea on how many days after the psychometric assessment will they inform you whether you qualify or not for any interview? and when the interview will most likely be?

Thanks =)
