The British Secret Intelligence Service, known as MI6 has published an online test for potential James Bond candidates. The quiz is posted on the Secret Intelligence Service’s website. You are given a background and must answer the questions within two minutes. Just like a real life interrogation.
Unfortunately the SIS operatives aren’t known as “00” (double O’s), but as “Operational Officers”, but if you can live with that description, the SIS are still recruiting. You can read the typical Operational Officer profile here.
Excerpt from the test:
