This Questionnaire is about you and your experiences, interests and achievements.  The purpose of collecting this information is to compare your preferences with characteristics that we have identified as being necessary for this profession, in a way that is fair and consistent with everyone.


This questionnaire will be scored the same way for all applicants.  The scoring system is designed to avoid discriminating against groups within the applicant population e.g. males, females, people of different ages, etc.’  


–        Not all the questions score. 

–        There is no obvious way of determining which responses will attract the most points. 

–        The marks awarded are driven by preferences, with the least marks being awarded to the least preferred responses, and the most marks being awarded to the most preferred responses. 

–        Be as honest as possible when answering the questions.
