I followed the advice I picked up on another forum(an African one) and passed my TA. In summary
-Even though employers(not just SCB) say that one should be honest in TA’s, truth is that if your answers don’t reflect what they’re looking for, you’ll fail.If ‘there are no right or wrong answers’ as they like to say, your friends wouldn’t have failed.
-Treat these like true/false questions.Only use the extremes,NEVER choose the neutral answer.
-They ask the same questions throughout,just different wording. If you’ve ever done essays at uni level, you’ll know about the art of paraphrasing so they can’t trick u on this one.Be extremely consistent.Don’t say you extremely agree and then 5 questions later when they ask it in a diff way you choose a diff option
-I personally found it better to answer each question within 10 seconds(though u get more than this) coz it was easy for me to remember my previous answers and definitely concentrate. I did mine around 2am when everyone was asleep and no outside noise to distract
-Have a good night sleep and make sure that ur phone is off when you do the test.GOOD LUCK!
