Administrators in different fields (2010 cycle) – New tests

On this page you will find specific information relating to the new tests for competition EPSO/AD/177/10.

Further to the Court ruling in the case F-35/08, new tests are being organised for those candidates who were excluded from the selection process in 2010 on the basis of their results in the admission tests, either because they did not reach the pass mark, or because they were not amongst the best candidates to be invited to the Assessment Centre based on their score. All these candidates have already been informed via their EPSO accounts.
