Os resultados de um exame de colocação trouxeram-me, por casualidade, a esta cidade


Explanation:
I do not believe it needs any further explanation; the Portuguese sentence is clear as water. After all, I have been speaking Portuguese now for 70 years. Anyhow, this is what placement means in this context(Random Webster):
place·ment n.
1. the act of placing.
2. the state of being placed.
3. the act of an employment office or employer in filling a position. And this is the meaning of colocação (Priberam):
colocação
do Lat. collocatione
s. m.,
acção de colocar;
emprego;
situação;
posição.
