This will be my first time applying to the City of London. Curious if anyone has any insight when it comes to the type of written exam they administer? Any areas of study to focus on? I have written CPS/OS as well as Firefighter knowledge based exams in the past. Any info is greatly appreciated, thanks.

It is very similar to the OS/CPS testing, but all of the questions come from large projector screens. Half of the candidates sit one way facing a screen and half the other way facing a separate screen (displaying the same thing). I'd say, focus on quick math and mechanical aptitude type questions, as you only have so long to answer a question before it switches to the next one.

I think in past recruitments they've staggered them, hopefully that continues this time around
