RICS expects candidates to be perfect in the final APC Interview? In other words, why would a candidate fail the APC?”

Jon Lever says … “I am often asked whether RICS expects candidates to be perfect in the final APC interview? In other words, why would a candidate fail the APC?”

Jon Lever’s advice on Why candidates may ‘fail’ the APC?

Firstly, The APC Final Assessment is not an exam; it is an experiential based assessment which is quite different. I find a lot of candidates think it the APC is something you can revise a few weeks before and hopefully your questions come up.  This could not be any further from the truth!

A test of your understanding?
You are attending an interview with three other professionally Chartered Surveyors to discuss your Knowledge (Level 1), Skill and Ability through examples of application and advice (Level 2 and 3).  This means that you need to know what the competency means and the depth and breadth of knowledge is important, but when taking a competency to a higher level then you must be able to discuss it, offering in depth examples of where you have had the experience and offered the advice relevant to the competency.

For example, if a competency you have selected has 10 steps from beginning to end, you should be able to:

Level 1 – Know the steps to complete the process and be able to discuss each step from a knowledge and process perspective.  Know the principles, parameters and key criteria without having to go back to the books or codes of practice etc.

Level 2 – You should be able to discuss your real life experiences from a range of different project types explaining how you have actually done each of the steps.

Level 3 – If and when discussing with a client about a relevant solution to a problem / challenge they have, you should be able to discuss with them and advise a suitable (correct) solution to cover each step.  This advice should be based upon and taken from your experiences you have had at Level 2. Assessors are also looking to see how you will conduct yourself and therefore presentation, communication and professional conduct also feature high in the assessment.

Assessors do not expect candidates to be experts in every competency they declare, but they do expect candidates to have made the effort to have fully understood and taken steps to experience the depth and breadth of their declared competencies.  The APC Final Assessment is not easy, it is not meant to be, it is a professional interview where a successful candidate demonstrates to other Chartered Surveyors that they are competent and can be trusted to be professional.

A test of your professionalism
It is a good idea to treat your panel as if you were attending a progress meeting with a client, be on your best professional behaviour, have your client’s interest foremost in your mind and be able to explain and discuss yourself professionally and succinctly.

At the APC Final Assessment a candidate must convince a panel of professional Chartered Surveyors that they are a ‘Safe Pair of Hands’ and should they achieve their Chartered Status and set up their own practice they know their business and they understand how they are expected to conduct themselves and not bring themselves, the institution and all other Chartered Surveyors into disrepute.

Why could you be referred?
Unfortunately, candidates are mainly referred at the Final Assessment due to a lack of understanding of the process or their competencies, or through a lack of experience so they are unable to demonstrate their ability. If a candidate is unable to discuss at the final assessment the basics as laid down in the competencies, then the assessors will refer the candidate.  You would be surprised how many candidates come forward for assessment thinking they can demonstrate a Level 3 competency by just having the outline knowledge without any real experience of it!

In the 15 years I have been assessing this is a constant issue and I often say that about 50% to 60% of candidates I see at the interview are poor.  This percentage is much higher at the mock interviews I provide, but thankfully they are mocks and I am able to identify and demonstrate to these individuals the gaps they have in their knowledge and experience.

I achieved my APC Final Assessment and Chartered Status over 20 years ago and I am as proud today as the day I achieved it. I believe that success comes from hard work, being realistic about whether you are ready to take the final assessment, a positive attitude to continually grow and develop and try to always do everything to the best of your ability.
