Those who have never taken or studied an assessment centre will probably not be familiar with the term ‘In-Tray Exercise’, even though it is one of the most important (and often most difficult) parts of the entire assessment. In this type of test, you are basically given a list of tasks, told to prioritize them within a certain amount of time, and then defend your prioritization to your assessor. The purpose of the test is basically two-fold. On one hand, your ability to prioritize important tasks appropriately will be tested during this exercise. And secondly, your actions will be watched and assessed so that they will be able to see how you handle the pressure.
The first thing that most people will notice about this exercise is how much pressure it can put on you. You are often given a LOT to do, and only a small amount of time to do it in. To make this even more difficult, you need to make a variety of difficult decisions during the entire process that can REALLY throw you off if you are not ready for them… which is why it is such a good idea to study and practice for this part of the assessment before actually taking part in it.
