What is the RCMP Online Entrance Assessment?

The RCMP Online Entrance Assessment is not an exam, but rather an assessment of your personality, behaviour, and cognitive ability.

The RCMP Online Entrance Assessment was designed as a biased-free tool to assess applicants for the RCMP Officer recruiting process. The RCMP Online Entrance Assessment consists of six sections:

  • Section 1: Workstyle preference
  • Section 2: Language comprehension
  • Section 3: Numerical skills
  • Section 4: Spatial skills
  • Section 5: Memory quotient
  • Section 6: Business reasoning

The assessment should take approximately 55-70 minutes to complete. There are several timed portions. It is recommended that you complete the entire assessment in one session.

How do I prepare?
The RCMP Online Entrance Assessment Preparatory Guide has been developed to assist you in preparing to complete the assessment.

What score do I need to pass and move on in the process?
Completing the RCMP Online Entrance Assessment does not guarantee advancement in the RCMP recruiting process. We will measure your score against the RCMP Standards for police applicants to determine if your score is competitive. If you are unsuccessful, you will be eligible to re-apply after a waiting period of 3 months.
