11+ and GCSE exams

Another nag on job interviews.

Reference: Friends Reunited

If you load the above link, you can relive the terrors of your post 11s and your GCSE exams. Anyway, to the point:

In the last couple of years, I have attended two job interviews where I was asked similar questions to the age 7-11 questions set on Friends Reunited. Everyone here have done GCSEs, so why do employers set these questions? Obviously, "we" as post-GCSE students should expect ourselves to score 80%+. This has been proven by the test results that I gained in the last 30 minutes (Maths 100%, Science 80%, Verbal Reasoning 100%).

So if everyone scores 80%+ at a given job interview, then the employer has nothing to differentiate the candidates on that front. Employers should think about setting GCSE questions at the very least.

Think/talk about.
