    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?

    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 sheet

    From what I’ve heard from people recruited by Northern, it’s definitely dots.

    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 🙂
