Hi Evogenesis,I have a pre-admission test at Seneca for the RAQC program in a few days. I wanted to know how to prepare for the applicant profile section in particular. What sort of short questions can I expect? Is the essay topic always related to RA or can we expect random topics? Any tips regarding the essay you would that you would like to would be great. Btw, is the applicant profile timed just like the English test?

Hello all. Does anyone have written this exam?I will be starting my Seneca RAQC program in Jan 10, and would like to maybe get a head start on the exam. Would it be reasonable to register for the April/May 10 exam and start preparing now? Should I wait till after I start the program, and learn a bit before start studying?How much work is involved in studying for this exam? (months of late evenings and study weekends or 2 wks vacation sacrificed is enough?)Any insights please?Thanks.
