Testing process in the Situation Test
Situation test assessment
In the Situation Test, they test your innovative qualities and the ability to handle material. They provide you with material and you must work with them. This test has a duration of 3 hours and the valuation is done for a total of 100 marks.
The model you create will undergo evaluation for composition of elements, creative ability in the use of material given, space visualisation, overall presentation, finesse of the model, construction skill, and colour scheme. They compare this with the writeup you give explaining the concept behind your action. The test and instructions are in English.
You must see that any mention of your personal identity or use of identification marks automatically disqualifies you. The test evaluation is done on the spot. They will not preserve anything for the future.
