Admissions screening task

After the sift for the first three entry requirements, most applicants then begin their involvement in our 3 stage selection procedure, which focuses on potential and skills, rather than prior relevant experience, by taking a screening task. Examples of the task used most recently can be seen on the programme website.

All applicants are encouraged to practise before sitting the test, using the examples of previous tests on the DClinPsy website. Any candidate who finds that the tests are difficult access and who like support or other arrangements to do the task, should contact Anna Daiches to discuss requirements. If the candidate obtains one of the top 70 scores they will be invited to interview. If a candidate declares a registered disability and scores on or above the 70th centile, they will progress to interview. This guarantees an interview even if the top 70 scores are higher. Those declaring a disability will not be disadvantaged by screening arrangements. The aim is to encourage applications from people underrepresented in the profession.
