Tab Content: Logging in to SHL
The email you receive from SHL is a generic email which all candidates receive althought the link in it is unique. It contains expected times required to complete tests. These are not your individual test time limits. Click on the link in the email to get to the SHL login page.
When you first use the link from the invitation email you may need to register to use the system. If you have used SHL to complete tests previously you may already have an account. You can reset your password if required in order to login if this is the case. Just follow the instructions on the appropriate tab.
Tab Content: Starting a test
When you are logged in and have agreed to any terms and conditions, you will see the following screen. You can click on the blue Start buttons to begin any test when you are ready. You can do them in any order you prefer. You are also given the opportunity to complete practise questions after clicking on a start button.
You should have a calculator, pen and paper on hand when doing the tests. You can use any pointing device such as a touchpad - you don't specifically need a mouse.
The expected time shown on this screen is set by SHL and does not vary regardless of any extra time you have been awarded due to a disability. The actual time you have been allocated appears on the following page once you click on a start button. If you have been given extra time, the time limit shown on the next page will already have been increased from the standard timings described above.

If you have a disability which will affect your performance on the screening test, you should contact us using the details below. Extra time is available (usually 20%) for candidates who require additional support although we will look at individual circumstances to ensure that no applicant is unfairly disadvantaged.
The test system provides a function to change the colours of the display and supports zooming using the standard browser controls (use CTRL + / -). Please note that these functions are currently NOT available on the practice tests SHL provide, only on the live test system.
