Police Test Study Guide has put together the most
comprehensive range of police exam questions and
full-length practice tests that prepare you for the
needs and demands of the 2021 police test.
CANDIDATES MUST PREPARE FOR ALL TYPES OF POLICE QUESTION. HERE, WE REVIEW THE DETAILS YOU NEED TO KNOW.
MCQs form the backbone of police test questions. Here, you are asked a question and offered 4 possible answers. You are asked to either select the correct answer, or to select the “most accurate” answer from the choices provided.
During the reading comprehension test, you may also be asked true/false type questions. Here, you must be careful to read, re-read and triple read the paragraph in question. True/false questions can be deceptive. You need to take your time.
Don't underestimate the value of educated guesswork. By eliminating just one of the possible answers, you increase the probability of choosing the right answer by 8%. If you eliminate 2 answers, this jumps to 25%. So even if you don't have a clue what the answer is, try to "work out" what cannot logically / possibly be true. It can make all the difference!
