What sort of test is that - and can you be sure hat you are cutting out the 60% that would be crap at the job and not 60% ho would be good at it but just hate having to do stupid tests just to get an interview?

(I wouldn't mind so much if it was the employer insisting on the test but this is from the agency, for the agency)

If I knew then what I know today, then I'd know the same now as I did then - then what would be the point?
