Booking of your computer-based tests (CBT) – most important points to remember

Before you book your admission tests, do not forget that:

  • Booking is only possible between the dates published in your EPSO account. In general, booking starts at 0h00 on the first day and ends at 12 o’clock (midday) Brussels time on the final day. If you do not book during this period, you will no longer be able to book. All candidates are offered the same number of days in which to book a test, regardless of when they apply. Please check the booking invitation message in your account for more details.
  • Make sure you complete the whole booking procedure. At the end, you should see a confirmation number (e.g. 8800000001507876). If you do not see this number, it means that your booking has not been completed. You can print this booking confirmation at any moment.
  • Straight after the booking, you should receive an e-mail confirming your booking. If you do not receive this e-mail confirmation, please check your spam filter and your junk e-mails. This is not the official confirmation you need to bring to the test centre. The official booking confirmation will be uploaded later (usually within 48 hours after the booking) into your EPSO account.
  • Rescheduling is possible but is subject to availability. To reschedule your test, you must first wait until the booking confirmation uploads in your EPSO account (usually within 48 hours after your initial booking). See the CBT manual for more information.
  • If you cannot participate in the tests, you should cancel your appointment via the booking management system (see the CBT manual for more information).

Some Member States organise some sessions of Training and support to prepare candidates for competitions. If you do not see a link next to your Member State, it means that EPSO has not received any information on this subject from the Member State concerned.
