seeking advice - Revenue Canada Exams- Tax Payer Service Agent post - CRA




My wife had applied with CRA for the post of Tax Payer Service Agent position and have received their email for testing . We have only 10 days to prepare for exam (while working in a full time job).

If anyone has appeared for the testing for this job post, could they please help / guide me about what to expect in the exam?

Given that she have never appeared for the Govt testing /exams before so she is quite curious to know what should be preparing for. following are the areas that she would be tested on:

The following tests will be administered at the testing session:

Information about the Writing Skills Test:

Test # 1

The testing session will last approximately 2.00 hours.

She must achieve a Level 2 (pass mark of 62 out of 106) on the Writing Skills Test to continue in this process.

The Writing Skills Test is ninety minutes long. It consists of five subtests and assesses the following:

Spelling
Grammar
Vocabulary
Punctuation and Capitalization
Sentence Sequencing


Test # 2

Test: Situational Judgment Test Recruitment Version

Information about the SJT-R

The testing session will last approximately 3.00 hours.


She must achieve a mark of 60/102 on the Situational Judgment Test - Recruitment Version (SJT R) to continue in this process. The SJT-R has a time limit of two hours twenty minutes...

Thanks in advance
