Take the Guesswork out of Passing Your Ontario Police Constable Exam!
A better Way to Study?
Jennifer and Amy are aspiring Police Officers. They’ve met all the entrance requirements. They have great recommendations. All that stands between them and success on the Entrance Exam.
Jennifer had always been a good student. She did okay on tests like the SAT and figured the Police Entrance Exam would be like that. Besides, she heard that you couldn’t really prepare for the exam. She fit in some studying (in between her favorite TV shows). But as the test date approached, she got a nagging feeling that she should be doing more. When she got her scores, Jennifer had been proficient in some areas, but scored very low in math which had always been one of her strongest subjects. She was also surprised at how unprepared she was for the Identification and Recognition section.
Amy, on the other hand, knew she had never been a great test taker. In fact, she had always found them stressful. She had to work very hard to get the grades she got. She knew that “seeing” what the test looked like would boost her confidence. Armed with practice tests and a focused study guide, Amy quickly realized she knew more than she thought and was able to focus on the areas where she needed help. When she took the test, she scored proficient or higher in every area and confidently took the next step towards realizing her dream of becoming an RCMP officer.
Why did Amy succeed when Jennifer struggled, and how can you ensure that you have that same success?
With the Right Preparation, You can Pass the Ontario Police Entrance Exam on the First Try!
The Ontario Police Constable Entrance Exam is not a test of general knowledge. That’s the common trap that the “Jennifer’s” fall into. They think that it’s simply about what they know. As a result, they rely on what they’ve already learned.
And that’s why many students, even ones who make the Honor roll, frequently do not achieve the scores they need the first time they take the exam. And some, unfortunately, never do.
WHY IS THIS TEST IS DIFFERENT?
The Entrance Exam is specifically designed to identify students who are likely to succeed as an Police Constable. It tests your ability to apply the critical thinking skills that you will need to use every day. You need to know how to apply what you’ve learned to the questions being asked. That requires a different way of studying. One that’s tailored to material you’ll find on the actual test.
In our fictional example, Jennifer may still reach her goal, but she will have spent more time than she needed to. On the other hand Amy, by realizing her strengths and weaknesses, was applying critical thinking to her test preparation. As a result, she met her goal the first time.
