I have my assesment day at DB Schenker on 25th April.. Very nervous
Has anyone done their tests here and any advice would be warmly welcomed
Thanks in advance
Just relax and make sure you buy a bop it for the reaction tests! I failed the group bourdon ( but passed everything else. I fell into a false sense of security with the group bourdon and didn't concentrate! s the reaction test is a real pig but I found that at stages it was easier to just keep calm and start where I could when it was goimg at light speed. The rules and regs. Was on glop application when I did it but its pretty much common sense and I found it useful to make notes on the scrap paper provided. And the mechanical comprehension was basically levers pulleys and pivots what I'd call gcse level mechanics (it was lucky I volunteer at a steam railway working with coupling rods and brake levers!! ) ) just buy a bop it, concentrate and don't fret is my basic advice hope this helps.
I did the train drivers assessment there and the concentration test was Group Bourdon on paper, haven't done any of the others that you have mentioned. Hope this helpsHey Team,
Slightly different as I am going for a Train Manager position with East Midlands. Got through the first stage (presentation and Interview). Second stage is at DB Schenker Doncaster.
My question is how are the concentration, ticket selling/checking and verbal reasoning tests presented to you? On computer screen or paper. This is important to me as I have been using the computer based program to help prepare but I feel it would make a difference if it was paper based.
In addition the practice materials I have been given only use the SCAAT test and not the Group Bourdon. I hope this is the case at the assessment facility. Anyone able to confirm this.
Thanks in advance
