General Competency Test Level 2 (GCT 2-314)
The purpose of the General Competency Test: Level 2 (GCT2) is to assess an individual's general cognitive ability - the ability to use reasoning skills to solve problems required for officer level positions.
It can be used to assist managers in making selection decisions for appointment or for placement in training programs, identifying training and development needs, and counseling for career transitions. This test can also be administered through the PSC’s Online Test Facility (OLTF) platform.
The General Competency Test: Level 2 (GCT2) consists of 90 multiple-choice questions, with no sub-tests. There are five types of questions:
- Figural Relations
- Number and Letter Series
- Numerical Problems
- Analytical Reasoning
The GCT2 takes about 2 1/2 hours to write, including time for administrative purposes.
When the test is used for screening purposes, the minimum pass mark is 51/90. Managers can use a higher cut-off score depending on the level of ability required by the position.
The Personnel Psychology Centre's 48-hour scoring service sends results to the test centre which in turn informs the candidates of their scores.
Retest Period - There is a 180 days waiting period before you can rewrite the test. Should you wish to take this test again, you must wait until after the retest period indicated for this test has elapsed. Should you rewrite the test before the retest period has elapsed, your result will not be valid and a new retest period will be imposed from the new test date.
