O & M/Systems test

March 1980
Management Services;Mar1980, Vol. 24 Issue 3, p45
With the introduction of the revised Management Services Certificate and Diploma scheme this coming September, candidates will in future be able to offer an organization and methods/systems test in lieu of the time study practical. The test is designed to be completed in a three hour period and candidates will be recommended to spend at least fifteen minutes studying the given situation before making a positive attempt to answer the questions posed. During this time, it is anticipated that candidates would draw up a rough timetable to work to, so that they have adequate time in which to tackle each part of the test. The figures given against question sub-sections indicate the way in which marks will be allocated and these marks will generally bear a direct relationship to the time which the examiners believe will need to be spent on the individual sections. As the examiners feel that neatness and presentation are important, approximately 20 percent of all marks will be allocated to this aspect.
