environment

Situational Judgement
Methodology
• The SJTs are based on the Competency Framework for
working with the EU institutions. Make sure you are familiar with
it!
• If you have time, also red the code of Good Administrative
behaviour of EU officials.
• Read the scenario and each of the possible answers before
responding. Look for subtle differences in the wording of the
options which could help determine the relative value of the
various courses of actions outlined
• Base your responses solely on the information provided in the
text – try not to bring in outside knowledge
• Your answers should reflect your intuitive responses to a
situation and a common sense approach
