Structure of the final assessment Tips from Jon Lever FRICS

Structure of the final assessment
At the assessment centre you must first register with the RICS reception administrators who will direct you to the waiting room. When it’s time, you will be asked to go to your interview room. Usually there are three assessors including the chairman, but there may only be two. The Structure is key chairman explains the assessment process and then you deliver your presentation, followed by 5 to 10 minutes of questions on your Case Study and presentation. Then 30 minutes of knowledge and experience based questions focusing on your declared competencies.
Finally, the chairman covers the RICS Rules of Conduct and Ethics, these can also appear throughout the assessment.
At the end of the assessment the chairman will give you the opportunity for any last comments and, if appropriate, revisits any questions that were passed over during the interview.
The RICS informs you of the assessment result at a later date.

journey time and parking. You cannot be late for the final assessment! Prepare a checklist so that when you get nervous on the day you don’t forget anything. Absolutely anything in your submission documents can be the basis of questioning during your interview, so make sure you put in the preparation time and regularly review your declared competencies and submission documents.

If you missed the last two tip please see below, see below.

  1. Prepare your presentation thoroughly
    Once your Case Study is finished you should focus on developing your 10 minute presentation. I have seen a number of candidates present something different from their Case Study at the final assessment; you will be referred if you do this. If you bring a flipchart or handouts they should look professional. Your notes should be detailed enough to be a useful prompt, but not a script that you read to the assessors. A vital part of your preparation is practise to polish your performance and get your timings right.

2. Practise your presentation
You will be required to deliver your ten minute Case Study presentation at the beginning of the Final Assessment Interview. You will be expected to deliver an excellent and professional presentation, with well-produced verbal communication, top quality visual aids (if you are using any) good eye contact, good body language, clarity of thought and structure, professional and polite delivery and ensuring you can demonstrate top quality skill and awareness of the needs of your audience.  So often candidates don’t do well here so here is your chance to excel and stand out from the crowd.
