Scheduling your appointment
The assessment is entitled “UK Foundation Programme Situational Judgement Test”, with the exam series code UKFP-SJT for test centre and UKFP-SJT-OP for OnVUE Online proctored.
Once you have signed in to your testing account you will be able to select one of the exam series codes. If you chose UKFP-SJT, you will be able to search for a test centre and book a place in one of the available appointment slots (subject to availability).
If you selected UKFP-SJT-OP you simply choose the date and time that you prefer to complete the assessment at home (OnVUE is available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, with appointment slots subject to availability).
Once scheduled, you can choose to subsequently change your booking if necessary (to a different date, time or test centre location, subject to availability), by simply logging into your account and choosing ‘Reschedule’. You can reschedule up until 48 hours before your appointment start time or up until the close of the booking period (whichever is earlier).
If you book a place but decide not to attend, you must cancel your booking at least 48 hours before the SJT is due to be delivered. If you change your mind about the delivery method (e.g. you scheduled a test centre appointment but now need to take the test via OnVUE at home), you will have to contact UKFPO for advice and instructions.
Information about the F1 SJT
During the test centre check-in process, you will be required to present one form of original (no photo copies), valid (unexpired) government issued ID that includes your name, photograph, and signature. The first and last name that you used to register must match exactly the first and last name on the ID that is presented on test day.

If you intend to test at home, the OnVUE ID policy for OnVUE testing is slightly different. Be sure to refer to the OnVUE related information here.
If you have any concerns about the ID you are required to present at your SJT test appointment, please contact the UKFP team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once seated at the workstation, when the test is launched, you will be presented with the following:
||A non-disclosure agreement which you must accept in order to progress to the actual test
||An optional tutorial to help you understand the basic functionality of the computer-based test and how to navigate through it and select your responses
|SJT section 1
||Typically 37 scenarios (19 multiple choice and 18 rating scenarios), each with several questions to respond to
||An optional break
|SJT section 2
||Typically 38 ranking scenarios, each with several questions to respond to
||An optional survey to enable you to give feedback
NB: if you have been pre-approved for extra time (because of a medical or neurological condition), your allotted appointment slot time will be increased, and the total appointment duration (ie approximately how long you can expect to be at the test centre) will be indicated in the confirmation email you receive upon scheduling the appointment (e.g. for an adjustment of 25% extra time, the confirmation email will indicate a total appointment time of 207 minutes instead of the usual 165 minutes). If your email does not indicate an increased total appointment duration, then the extra time has not been applied to your appointment and you should contact UKFPO as soon as possible. On the day of your test, the Test Centre Administrator or Proctor cannot add extra time to an appointment that has not had the accommodation applied at the time of booking.
Note that on the day of the test, only the time for the actual SJT sections will be increased by the percentage of the extra time accommodation you have been granted, rounded up to the nearest whole number, for example the usual SJT section time of 70 mins per section + 25% extra time = 88 mins for each of the 2 SJT sections, therefore a total of 176 mins in total for the two sections, and the increased allotted time, (e.g. 88 mins), is displayed in the corner of the screen when you start each SJT section. Extra time is not added to any other timed sections (ie the durations of the tutorial, break and survey remain the same; 5 and 10 & 10 minutes respectively).
