Could you get a job at MI5?

Let’s be honest, it’s probably a no

We’ve all dreamt of being a spy. The fast cars, the shaken martinis, the opulent balls attended in crisp white tuxedos – even if Bond was lying to us, the job still has a certain amount of sex appeal.

Last month, Cambridge grad Christopher Steele was outed as the author of the dossier on Donald Trump’s naughty behaviour. So if an unassuming bloke from Surrey and ex-Cantab could become a spy straight out of uni, it makes you wonder: could you?

Well, probably not. But if you’re interested, these questions, based on actual MI5 interview techniques, will answer just that. Take our quiz to judge whether you could be a super-spy, or whether you’d be stuck in the tech room making tea.
