Once you have completed your test(s), the company you are taking the test(s) for will be notified that your results are ready.

In order to keep your results confidential, only the person chosen as the results recipient at the company you are taking the test(s) for, will have access to your results. For this reason, SHL support teams will not be able to provide you with your results. However, we can confirm whether or not you have completed your test(s).

For feedback on your performance, or for information about the next stage of the process, please contact the company you are taking the test(s) for directly. As SHL support teams are unable to provide company contact details, please refer to your initial communication from them or to the company's website. Please note that the extent of the feedback you receive will be at the company's discretion.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with your local Technical Support team by using the Contact Form widget on the right side of this page.

We can check our systems to delete any data that we hold on you as a data controller. This would include any time where you have 1) called in directly for support, 2) if you have taken any practice tests on our site or 3) if you are registered to receive marketing information from SHL. Unless there is a pending legal action or dispute which would require us to retain your personal information until the matter is resolved, we will delete your personal information that we hold as a data controller.

For any personal data in relation to an assessment that you have taken for another organisation or potential employer, you will need to relay this question to your employer or potential employer directly as we cannot delete candidate data without our client’s express permission as they are the controller of your personal information. Please ensure to provide your employer or potential employer with the information below, in order for them to instruct us to process your request.

Please provide the client with the following details:
the assessment type and date completed;
full name and email address you used; and
