If you meet the eligibility requirements according to the data in your online application and if you scored one of the highest total marks at the selection based on qualifications, you will be invited to attend the assessment centre (online or in-person) over one or several days in your languages 1 and 2 . Please note that the field-related test may be organised either in one of EPSO’s accredited test centres or remotely. Further details and instructions will be included in your invitation letter.

Unless instructed otherwise, you will have to upload scanned copies of your supporting documents to your EPSO account. Further details and instructions will be included in your invitation letter.
