The questions in this practice test are similar to the ones you can find on our latest 2020 mock exam here, the only difference is the amount of questions we’ve assigned.

As with all our CSCS mock tests, there is no time limit, so please ensure you read through each question carefully, as some may require multiple answers.

Note: If a question requires multiple answers and you only give one correct answer it will not award a full mark for that question. Good luck!!!
