Try your hand at free practice aptitude tests
Aptitude tests, also sometimes referred to as psychometric tests, come in an enormous range of formats and are used to assess different skills and strengths that individual employers are looking for, often at an early stage in the recruitment process. Practice may not always make perfect but it certainly helps with nerves and demystifies the challenges ahead, so take advantage of these free online tests from our partners at Job Test Prep and make sure you know what to expect.
Practising online ability tests will increase your confidence and boost your familiarity with the formats used for different kinds of assessment; it may even also help you to identify your own strengths and weaknesses. You might find you’ve got powers of inductive reasoning you never realised you had – or alternatively, you may quickly realise that you need to brush up on your maths in order to get through a numerical reasoning test.
For an explanation of what different kinds of test are assessing and the kinds of role they are used for, see our overview of what graduate job hunters need to know about psychometric tests.
