According to Mr. Akande, candidates will first of all take a program specific test/assessment before the final selection is done.
Under this phase of assessment, applicants are to log in and fill in their phone numbers and surnames as contained in their original application, using their personal profile (which has been opened for every applicant).
In addition, all candidates will be notified by SMS of their assessment the day before. All assessments will include some personal questions and other questions testing basic knowledge of English, General Knowledge and Quantitative Reasoning.
Applicants will also be tested on other programme-specific questions depending on the programme they applied for.
Applicants can take their tests on a smart-phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer provided that the devices have internet connection.
At the end of the on-going assessment/test exercise, 500,000 job seekers would be picked for the two-year volunteer positions available in the Npower programme.
According to the statement released, N-Power applicants can only gain access to their profile for assessment on the N-Power portal as represented in the schedule which breaks down applicants in batches by the first letter in their surnames.
If you try to log in on a date that is not for the programme you applied for and your surname, you will not be able to take the Npower recruitment test.
