CSCS Mock Test Full 50 Questions 2018

By admin on July 9, 2018 in CSCS Mock Tests, Interactive CSCS Mock Tests with 135 Comments

Welcome to the first of our interactive CSCS Mock Tests, here you will be able to select the answer using your computer mouse or if you have a touch screen just select the right answer with your finger. At the end of the exam, you will be presented with your score and be told whether you have passed or failed with the minimum score.

On this CSCS Mock test we have given you the full 50 questions, this will give you the feel for sitting your real exam, you will need to get at least 47 correct answers to pass this exam.

If you are planning on taking your CSCS test soon then you will need to get in as much practice as possible.  As with the real test you will come across some questions that will need single answers but also questions that will require you to select more than one answer.

This full 50 question CSCS practice test covers a wide range of topics from working at heights to health and safety, this is a good way to base your knowledge on the core CSCS topic if you are after your labourer or operatives card.

These 50 questions will be completely different from our first full CSCS practice test so if you’ve already completed that test you won’t have to answer the same questions again. You must answer all questions before you can get your final results. Good luck!

  44. Arthur says:

    Great I’ve been looking around this kind of mock exam. Are you going to upload new questions?

  45. Solomon says:

    I scored 49 out of 50

  46. Sarah says:

    On your other mock tests the answer to Q.41 is
    “All personnel on the site must immediately cease work” ???

  47. Johnson says:

    If your work site is given a prohibition notice, what does it mean?

    b. The site must undergo review to ensure the proper safety protocol are in place

    c. All personnel on the site must immediately cease work

    This question also confused me, answer C has been the most selected answer on some sites..

    • admin says:

      I get why this is confusing as both could be right, but b is the answer that would be the correct in the exam.

      • G says:

        Is this really true? if you google it this is what i cam across:If inspectors believe that your work activities give rise to a risk of serious personal injury, they may issue you with a prohibition notice.

        The prohibition notice normally requires you to stop that activity immediately. You must not resume the activity until you have taken action to remove or control the risk.

        • admin says:

          Agreed, these questions have been taken from CSCS exams and these are the correct answers given. I know it seems confusing but we can only provide the answers they want.

  48. Paul Cross says:

    Good test

  49. jagjeet singh says:

  69. Ande F says:

    Good test…i nearly passed…must read the questions properly 😁

  70. Sandra the headcase says:

    Wow, I only got 11 correct, oh well, just got to keep om trying I suppose!

  71. Kevin Kissack says:

    Hi, I got 47 out of 50 but have issues with some answers, and no pictures or photos?

    Painting a ladder is not good practice as it can hide faults. Wood ladders are rarely used so why paint alloy ones?

    If a co-worker complains of dizziness call the first aider (context can also affect answer – if person is dizzy on a ladder perform a rescue), then if that person deems necessary call the emergency services. There is not enough info to determine if it’s life threatening.

    Info about chemicals often used on site is in the SDS Register (used to be called MSDS – see HSE site). The SDS Register would contain all the SDS.

  72. Kevin Kissack says:

    Also, ladder use is a last resort nowadays. A risk assessment would determine if an elevated work platform is needed or even perform the work on the ground.

  73. Tiggybear says:

    Wow I scored a 42 / 50. Iv never workd on sit but my boyfriend does. It appears to be mostly common sense. Pretty pleased with my results. I’m even considering getting g a card now 😀

  74. Doug says:

    I’ve done this test several times after 3years and got 36 out 50 keep trying till you get stuck in your head now i got 50/50 3 times and 48.

  75. Tessa says:

    Found the info easy to understand and to read for someone who isn’t very good at English and has a very short attention span. Thank you

  76. Wayne says:

    i did better than i thought i would on this.

  77. Stan Robinson says:

    Very Good – 45/50

  78. Niam says:

    Got 5 questions wrong on my first mock test, so need to do a bit more practice.

  79. Abdi Sabriye says:

    i have got 49 correct and i hope it is not bad practicing this

  80. d kempster says:

    7 wrong must do better

  81. toni coppola says:

    helpful test, got 42 right without any revision

  82. kirk says:

    which of the following statements about ladders is not true?

    There are two answers, i marked one, painted, but fibreglass ladders will give lower chance of electrical grounding was also ticked ( i didnt tick this one).

    Should nt this say mark at least two answers?

    i only chose one of these

  86. Faiz Alam says:

  87. Russell Davies says:

  88. davy rich says:

    question 28 asks what a red and white sign with a finger pressing a button next to a flame represents ?and the answer is fire alarm simple as that so how is the answer that a fire extinguisher is present and an alarm ?

    • admin says:
