7 Tips for Completing your Application Form Examples. Give the best example to answer the question and show your ability. Do repeat info from your Careers Hub profile as necessary. Shortlisters will only look at the application form. Attention to detail. Read each question carefully and make sure you understand it before you write. You. We are interested in YOU. Tell us your story. Make your role/contribution clear in any example. @BBCTrainees #BBCGetIn

8 The Application Form Word limit. Each question has a 300 word limit – use it! Be careful to track spelling and word count. Save as you go. Internet connections can be unpredictable, so we’d recommend using Word/Pages etc to draft your answers. Submit. Once you press submit, you will not be able to make any changes. Contact if you have any if you have @BBCTrainees #BBCGetIn

9 Verbal Reasoning Test We use a verbal reasoning test because it assesses your ability to understand written passages and to evaluate the logic of different types of question. You’ll be asked to register and will be emailed a username and password. Make a note of them. It’s a timed test - you can take it once only so make sure you practice beforehand on practice tests found online (NB let us know if you normally get extra time for such activities). The questions have right or wrong answers - work quickly and accurately. You cannot go back once you have started. @BBCTrainees #BBCGetIn
