SJT Sample paper with rationale: UKFPO statement 16 December 2021

Posted on:

The UK Foundation Programme (UKFPO) has received correspondence from a number of parties regarding the ‘sample paper with rationale’ we published in October.

The upload of the ‘sample paper with rationale’ was communicated via social media on 29 October 2021 so it coincided with its publication on our website. Our aim was to make sure this resource was available before the first sitting of the SJT to support applicants. 

Earlier this month (14 December) we added this resource to an additional page on our website, the Practice Papers page, ​as well as the SJT FAQs page where it has been since October; however this has caused confusion for applicants who had not seen the information we had published previously. This has unfortunately meant that some applicants thought that new material was published midway through the SJT process and we apologise for that and any confusion caused. 

Our aim is always to make sure we provide applicants with as much information as we can to help applicants prepare for their SJT as we appreciate its importance to them. 

We always look at how we communicate and are always happy to get feedback so we can improve our processes.
