Hammersmith SJTs online

Hammersmith Situational Judgement Tests
Online practice for Junior Doctors and Medical Students

Who are we?
We are the Hammersmith Interview Course in London. We have been helping doctors prepare, successfully, for interviews and jobs for over 10 years. Our track record is unsurpassed because we are experts and have continuing direct experience of shortlisting and interviewing at all levels. We are a Consultant Faculty with many years of interview and selection experience between us. We are not trainees / retired / management / HR / recruitment advisors. We do know what we are talking about and what you need to know and do to be successful.

What are these online SJTs?
We have prepared a very comprehensive selection of online SJT exams for doctors and students who are increasingly sitting these exams as part of selection processes, both in the UK and all over the world. There are 2 free example questions (see menu on right) to show the layout and how the software works. If you subscribe, you'll gain access to our huge bank of online SJT questions. These are all arranged as timed and scored exams, with advice on how to maximise your scoring potential in the SJT exams. We have developed over 150 SJT exam questions that accurately reflect the type of scenarios you will face. Consistent and correct explanations, checked by our consultant faculty, are provided for every question so that you can learn why one answer is more highly scored than another.

This is one of the most comprehensive online sources of advice and practice SJTs available.

Why use these online questions?
We think these are the best collection of questions around. Our Consultant faculty have checked every question for relevance, and every answer and explanation for consistency. Unlike other sites, these are not recycled GPST SJTs which are often pitched at the wrong level. Our bespoke cross platform software runs fast, in your browser, and is totally confidential - no results are sent to or kept by us. The system has been designed for Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 7 upwards and Safari on PCs, smartphones, tablets, Macs etc, so you can do a quick exam anywhere, any time. Through having timed, marked exams you won't waste any time in learning where you might have gone wrong and understanding how to improve - rapidly. We can't emphasise enough how important a good score in the SJTs exam is for shortlisting...

Why practice SJTs? We're told this is an exam that can't be practiced for.
This is a common question, especially as the "official" line is that these can't be revised for and therefore you shouldn't practice. When were you ever told not to revise for an exam and thought that would be good advice?! Especially one that affects your career prospects? We have trialled these exams ourselves and on medical students and junior and senior doctors. Every single one of our testing panel reported that their scores improved as they practiced, simply by repeating patterns and looking for the typical "tricks" that are used to create uncertainty. Whilst these exams may be a proxy for psychometric testing (which in theory cannot be revised for) it is naiive to think that they perform in the same way as psychometric testing when it comes to preparation, pattern recognition and performance. These Hammersmith SJTs will help you practice, recognise key patterns and perform in SJT exams to the very best you can. Of course, we would say that, we want you to subscribe. For only 12 pounds for 4 months unlimited access, can you afford not to subscribe?

"I was asked to review the new online Hammersmith SJT exams. Very realistic questions, easy to use software with correct scoring, and excellent explanations. All the competencies were addressed nicely. As I progressed, I got better and better, which was entirely the point!
Thanks, it’s very good. I’ve not seen anything better."

"I was impressed at the quality of your questions and the answers are also very well written. I was able to use the questions on my ipad and my pc, which I liked."
