Avoid spending too much time on familiar topics.)Practice hand writing ahead of time. Practice time keeping. ( Do a full four and a half hour written exam with all four parts to check how much time you need for each, and to get a feeling for it. This also helps with practising handwriting as well.)Concentrate on the general part and try to do it really well (This part of the exam is marked first and candidates who do not score highly in this part are eliminated)Summarizing of texts is difficult ( not because of the content but because of the hand writing – normally with computers you can easily do a word count but with handwriting you do not really know how many words you have written)For summary writing, practise summarizing UN documents and time yourselfRead and check the UN/NY website on a daily basis.Judge the value of each question and distribute your time accordingly.Answer every question, even if you do not know or are not sure. (Take an educated guess. If you don’t write anything you automatically get 0 points, but there are no minus points for wrong answers.)Oral Examknow the UN Core Competencies and be able to relate to them with concrete personal examples and communicate these in a concise mannerFurther information about YPP is available on the Careers Portal, where all examination updates will be posted. In addition, the Frequently Asked Questions may be useful for anybody who is considering taking the exam.Competitive examinations for recruitment and placement in posts requiring specific language skills in the Professional category are administered separately, and are not included in this examination. on September 14, 2012 at 11:06 am By Robert Nguyen says: center_img Log in to Reply 2020 Open Call for Applications Art Omi: Music 8 thoughts on “UN Young Professionals Programme 2012” I saw this many times but i thought maybe i do not know the best way to register and log in.Anyway thank you very much.
