  1. Hi,
    I was wondering if there has been changes in the PAAB. I sat my first PAAB off the back of my class one course in 2009, it was a day and a half long then. Ive been checking the upcoming PAAB dates and it now appears to be 3 days long. Have there been any changes since 2009, if so does anyone know what they are, i just want to be fully preped before i go so i can smash it.
    Thanks in advance
  2. Not sure, but day one is a quick brief and an essay, day two and three is the usual "stuff" that you did last time, tiffy delema, leaderless tasks and ur given tasks,etc. enjoy.
  3. For candidates PAAB is an day and bit long. You get a brief the afternoon before the main test day. It has not changed much since 2009. Not sure if they are still doing it but they ran a pilot last year to re-introduce a timed essay, done during the afternoon of day one.

    For the DS PAAB is 4 day long. On Mon afternoon there is a brief for the DS, Tue, Wed and Thu are the 3 test days.
