Preparation Materials

Sample questions are provided by the Victoria Police and ACER which can assist you to improve your language and literacy skills. They can be found in the Candidate Information Booklets which are available for free from this website. The sample questions will provide candidates with an understanding of the content, style and structure of the examination.

It is recommended that you attempt these questions to identify areas needing development, then continue practicing to improve your results. You may choose to complete the sample questions several times to become familiar with the types of questions you will encounter in the exam. It is also a good idea to time yourself so you become familiar with time constraints.
