    Hi all!

    Does anyone have experience completing the Fieldfisher online assessment (ideally this year as i think it may have changed).

    I have recieved a link to complete the test within the next 5 days. I will report back what it is like once I have done it.

    I don't know about this year, but last year it was a "standard" verbal reasoning test and a logical/inductive reasoning test (with the shapes and stuff). It does seem like they've changed a couple things in their application process this year though.

    Thanks! yeah I believe this year it is more strengths focused from what they said at their open evening, but they didn't really give much else away.

    It may be a very different test then. If I remember correctly, last year the invitation email even included a link to useful (and free!) practice tests. If they didn't include anything like that this time around, then very likely no prep is needed.
    Also I believe this year the testing happens after your application has been reviewed? Congratulations in getting so far, if that's the case and good luck with the test!

    It was a Capp developed situation based test. You are given a scenario and told to rank in order what you would do in that situation from a list of options. At the end there is then a watson glaser test without the inferences section.

    Not sure if it may be similar to the new Linklaters test? (I have not done it so I can't say)

    Hi,
    Have you heard back yet?
    I completed my test yesterday and I'm wondering how long they take to get back to people? I submitted on Sunday and heard back on Tuesday asking me to take the test.

    Good luck to those taking the test and those waiting for the next step! :) Do let us know!
    I submitted my application on Wednesday last week and still haven't heard anything, hopefully next week.

    Yep :) Planning to do it tomorrow...and if all goes well, I think the telephone interview is the next round? I was thinking this would be competency-based with a couple of extra questions (e.g. why firm, commercial issue, why law etc.) but will cross the bridge when we get there (if at all haha)
