Hello everyone, just signed up after being a long time lurker 🙂
Im currenty practising the group bourdon tests and have a few questions for those with experience.
Should I be practising with the electronic version I have or print out paper ones?
Also, how long is the group bourdon test?June 21, 2017 at 8:09 am #1064SteveParticipant
Welcome to the forum DannyTee
The Group Bourdon is used by nearly all the toc’s and is pretty uniform across all of them. The Group Bourdon test involves:
5 sheets of dots (sometimes letters)
Each sheet contains boxes with multiple dots in each box
Each box with 4 dots in it should be circled
You get 2 minutes per sheetJune 22, 2017 at 7:45 pm #1066
Thanks! Do you know if great northern use letters or dots?June 23, 2017 at 12:28 pm #1069Ralph25Participant
From what I’ve heard from people recruited by Northern, it’s definitely dots.June 26, 2017 at 7:29 am #1070

The practice Tea OCC from the above link has helped me loads. I started practising about 2 weeks ago and I’ve definitely noticed that I’m more accurate now! Would recommend that one to practice from if you need extra help with that test too 🙂June 28, 2017 at 6:06 am #1073
