Assessment of Basic Law knowledge

Frequently asked questions

 

Q 1. How Basic Law test (BLT) result is adopted as one of the considerations to assess the suitability of a candidate?

A 1.  For civil service jobs requiring qualifications at Form 5 level or above, the written test result will constitute an appropriate weighting in the candidates' overall assessment.  For civil service jobs requiring academic qualifications below Form 5 level, candidates will be tested orally during the recruitment interviews and the results will be taken into account only if two candidates are considered equal in all other aspects. 

 

Q 2. Are holders of BLT results for degree/ professional grades required to sit for the BL written test again when applying for other degree/professional civil service jobs?

A 2.  No.  The result is of permanent validity.  Candidates may, if they wish so, take the test again when applications for the next round of BLT for degree/ professional grades are called.

 

Q 3. Are holders of BLT results for degree/ professional grades required to sit for the BL written test again conducted by the recruiting department or grade when applying for non-degree/ non-professional civil service jobs at Form 5 level or above?

A 3. The BLT results for degree/ professional grades are acceptable for the purpose of applying for non-degree/ non-professional civil service jobs requiring academic qualifications at Form 5 level or above. Candidates may, if they wish so, take the BLT conducted by the recruiting department or grade again and if so, the latest test results will be counted.  

 

Q 4. Can holders of BLT results for non-degree/  non-professional grades at Form 5 level or above use these test results in their application for degree/ professional civil service jobs?

A 4.  No.

 

Q 5. Is it necessary for applicants to attach their previous BLT results when submitting application form (GF340) for civil service jobs?

A 5. No.  The recruiting department or grade will inform candidates of the ways of submitting BLT results (if so possessed).

 

Q 6. For civil service job applicants who do not possess the relevant BLT result, can they still apply for civil service jobs?

A 6. For degree/professional grades, the BLT is held independently of the recruitment process for any civil service jobs, and candidates not yet possessing the test results may still apply for the civil service jobs concerned.  That said, prospective candidates are reminded to check CSB's announcement of the dates of upcoming BLT should they plan to take the test.  For other civil service jobs, the recruiting department or grade will inform candidates of the arrangements for the BLT.
