“… room for improvement but phenomenally helpful is reading text quickly etc . Really really useful . Thanks for putting it together”
Over recent years I have been asked repeatedly whether there are any old JAC tests that candidates could try. Up until a few years ago the JAC used to publish qualifying test reports and include their questions and answers. However they no longer make their tests available.
My blog on Qualifying Tests – gives you an overview of how they work.
I have been talking to a number of judges and practitioners about developing some mock crime, civil and family tests. However, the JAC announced at the end of 2016 that they would be testing new non-jurisdictional qualifying tests.
As a result and having collaborated with others I have developed one situational judgement and one critical reasoning test.
“Thank you. Did the test – wow very taxing – got x% It has helped greatly to see it in the flesh as it were and what to expect and what time of day not to take it!! Timing is key as well – a brilliant revision tool. Thanks”
16 questions in 15 minutes set by a judge to test candidates’ judgement and decision making based on real situations and experience.
23 questions to be answered in 30 minutes based on a judicial speech – this includes time for reading a PDF text.

I have set these tests so that you can take them a second time in case you experience wireless or technical issues.
I’m keen to add further situational judgement questions, but know that will not be easy, especially if they are non-jurisdictional and importantly respect the confidentiality of actual JAC tests.
Any feedback would be most welcome and I hope these may help candidates prepare for any future JAC tests.
“This evening I did the tests that you recently posted on your website which were very helpful.”
It is not possible to set these as mock tests as they require marking individually but I am willing to share some tips and advice – please just e-mail me or text me your e-mail address: [email protected] 0796 999 7335
