What Is An Aptitude Test?

An apitude test is a systematic means of testing a job candidate's abilities to perform specific tasks and react to a range of different situations. The tests each have a standardised method of administration and scoring, with the results quantified and compared with all other test takers.

How Are Aptitude Tests Administered?

Apitude tests are increasingly administered online - most often after a candidate has made their initial job application - and are used to filter unsuitable applicants out of the selection process, without the need for time consuming one-to-one job interviews.


Tips For Success

  • Treat the test like you would any other exam.
  • Work swiftly and accurately through any test.
  • Work out the maximum time you can spend on any question and stick to it religiously. You can return to questions at the end. Never get stuck on any particular question, even if you think you nearly have it.
  • If you are going to an assessment centre, take a calculator you understand with you. If you do not, you will be forced to use whatever they might provide you with.
  • Answer as many questions as possible in the time given.
