Situation Tests Examples With Common Mistakes Done by the Candidates 

1. On his way home, it suddenly started raining heavily.

Mistake: Instead of mentioning heavy rain, you can say that he is returning to his home. Heavy rain is not worth mentioning as it does not impact the person adversely.

2. In his train compartment, two gunmen force passengers to give up their belongings.

Mistake: It is possible that the policemen were there to complete their duty and checked the luggage for safety purposes. It is not possible that 2 people cannot take up the entire train without help. 

3. During a trekking trip, he was alone in the jungle.

Mistake: Everyone has their mobile phones with them all the time. And there are enough signals to track the location or call someone in the jungle. So, being left alone will not mark any big problem. 

4. He saw his girlfriend walking with another person on his way.

Mistake: A person can be male and female friends she’s walking with on the road. It is on you how you perceive it. 

5. He was playing outdoors, and his brother got seriously injured, and it started to rain heavily.

Mistake: At any point, the person can take his brother to the hospital in a car. If he doesn’t have one, he could ask his neighbors for help to take care of him. But, make sure that you use “Injured Brother” to show your communication skills. 

We hope that you have a basic idea of what mistakes can happen and how to overcome them to get better scores on your SRT test. We wish all the candidates the Best Of Luck in the future.
