Psychometric and aptitude tests
We provide information on a range of selection aptitude tests (numerical, verbal, logical reasoning, situational judgement, e-tray) and access to practice questions, plus additional support where needed.
The majority of employers now use an assessment as part of their recruitment process. Typically, it will be for a day or a half-day on the employers’ premises, and involve you taking part in four different activities, on average. Common activities are:
a group exercise
a case study.
Your performance in all of these areas will be assessed by the employers, to understand you and your skills in action. Gain all the help you need to understand, prepare for and develop the key skills employers look for at assessment centres through the support offered by St George’s Careers Service.
