ABOUT PSYCHOMETRIC TESTS

Psychometric tests are commonplace in many selection processes. They are an effective way for an employer to assess a candidate’s suitability for a specific post or position. The type of psychometric tests used will normally be reflective of the role you are applying for. For example, a banker would normally be required to carry out numerical based psychometric tests whilst a police officer would be required to carry tests and assessments based around the ability to communicate effectively both in writing and verbally (verbal comprehension).

TOO MANY QUESTIONS, NOT ENOUGH TIME?

In the majority of psychometric test assessments you are not expected to answer all of the questions. When you turn over the test paper or when you start your online test you may see that the total number of question in the test is excessive for the time given to answer them. If this is the case, do not panic, you are not required to finish the test. The key to remember is that you must answer as many questions as possible but you should also aim for accuracy. Far too many test-takers sacrifice speed for accuracy and as a result they fail the test.

Many people are interested in the pass mark for their forthcoming assessment. The truth is that many test administrators will score and assess candidates based on an average score for the entire group of applicants. Therefore, you should not become overly concerned about reaching an actual pass mark of say 70%, but instead concentrate on answering as many questions in an accurate manner.

TIPS FOR PASSING PSYCHOMETRIC TESTS

There’s no two ways about it, the most effective way in which you can prepare for psychometric tests is to attempt as many sample test questions as possible. When we say many, we mean many! But before you get your copy of our exclusive guide, here are a few important tips for you to consider that will go a long way to helping you to pass your psychometric tests.

How2Become Psychometric Testing Tip 1

TOP TIP 1

It is important that, before you sit your test, you find out the type(s) of test you will be required to undertake. You should also take steps to find out if the tests will be timed and also whether or not they will be ‘multiple-choice’ based questions. If the tests that you will be required to undertake are timed and of multiple-choice in nature, then we strongly advise that you practice this type of test question.

TOP TIP 2

Variety is the key to success. Even if you are only required to sit one type of psychometric test, for example numerical reasoning, we still recommend that you attempt a variety of different test questions, such as verbal reasoning, fault analysis, spatial reasoning and mechanical reasoning etc. This will undoubtedly improve your overall ability to pass the test that you are required to undertake.

TOP TIP 3

Confidence is an important part of test preparation. Have you ever sat a timed test and your mind goes blank? This is because your mind is focused on negative thoughts and your belief that you will fail the test. If you practice plenty of test questions under timed conditions then your confidence will significantly grow. If your confidence is at its peak at the commencement of the test then there is no doubt that you will actually look forward to sitting it, as opposed to being fearful of the outcome.

TOP TIP 4

Whilst this is a very basic tip that may appear obvious, many people neglect to follow it. Make sure that you get a good night’s sleep the night before your assessment. Research has shown that those people who have regular ‘good’ sleep are far more likely to concentrate better during psychometric tests.

How2Become Verbal Reasoning Tip 5

TOP TIP 5

Try practicing numerical test questions in your head, without writing down your workings out. This is very difficult to accomplish, but it is excellent practice for the real test. Also, practice numerical reasoning tests without a calculator. If you are permitted to use a calculator at the test, make sure you know how to use one.

TOP TIP 6

You are what you eat. In the week prior to the test eat and drink healthily. Avoid cigarettes, alcohol and food with high fat content. The reason for this is that all of these will make you feel sluggish and you will not perform at your peak. On the morning of your assessment eat a healthy breakfast such as porridge and a banana.

TOP TIP 7

Drink plenty of water, always. You need to be hydrated in the build-up to sitting your psychometric tests and also during them.
