The CASPer test is a relatively newer part of the application process. It started off with McMaster University and now it has quickly grown to be one of the most important parts of the pre-application process.

The CASPer test is a type of situational judgement test. You have 5 minutes to answer three questions relating to a relatively general scenario. These questions are looking to test various skills required in healthcare such as empathy, communication and deductive reasoning.

Therefore, the CASPer test is a great way to test your “non-academic skills”. If you can also type fast that is 😉

Just like any test, we recommend preparing for the CASPer early. Good preparation can help to improve your type speed and to become familiar with the test format/questions. Good preparation will make a huge difference on test day (as we have seen with students who practice with us).
