ICAS Assessments

Can you imagine an exam that involves hundreds of thousands of possible test items 📚, requires 3 years' studying mostly on a scooter! 🛴 and literally makes your brain bigger 🧠?

To join London's legendary fleet of black cabbies, this is the hurdle aspiring drivers must first jump. It's called The Knowledge, and it's considered to be one of the hardest exams in the world.

To pass it, aspiring drivers must memorise the British capital's 25,000 streets, as well as all the businesses and landmarks on them. Studies show that preparing for The Knowledge actually expands candidates' brain size - their posterior hippocampus, to be precise. Mastering The Knowledge takes at least 3 or 4 years, and it is the reason that London cabbies are rightly regarded as the best in the world. 🚖 #exams #assessment #learning #funfacts
