You'll then have ten days to complete them - but before you do, try out some sample questions by visiting www.shldirect.com. We have also compiled a number of frequently asked questions  to support you.

Please note, not all emails are compatible with our systems so please check your spam/junk folders to ensure you have received both emails.
