Situational strengths tests (SSTs)

choicesSSTs are designed to assess the core strengths that are needed to work in a placement or graduate role with a particular recruiter. The test presents a series of scenarios that you are likely to encounter on a regular basis and looks at how you would respond to these, asking you to select from a list of multiple options.
