Instructions to Online Practice FSOT
 
PURPOSE
 
The purpose of the practice Foreign Service Officer Test (FSOT) is to provide you with a realistic preview of the computer-based FSOT and an estimate of your likelihood of passing. The practice test simulates the actual FSOT in terms of questions, length of testing, and administration. Scores achieved will indicate your potential performance on an actual FSOT with good probability.
 
You can take the practice FSOT at any time from the convenience of your personal computer by accessing the link below.
 
When you finish the practice FSOT, you will receive your score and an estimate of your probability of passing an actual FSOT. You will also be provided with suggested study materials which could help you improve your score. Finally, after 6 months you will be given another opportunity to measure your improvement by taking an alternate version of the practice FSOT.
 
The practice test includes the Job Knowledge and English Expression sections of the FSOT, but not the Biographical Information Questionnaire (BIQ) or the Written Essay. Practice for the BIQ is not necessary since the scores are based on personal experiences. We do not provide a practice version of the Essay due to the high cost of scoring essays. Moreover, the Job Knowledge and English Expression sections are usually the best indicators of how a candidate will fare in the FSO selection process.
