Sainsbury's is the second largest chain of supermarkets in the United Kingdom, with a 16.9% share of the supermarket sector. Founded in 1869, by John James Sainsburywith a shop in Drury Lane, London, the company became the largest retailer of groceries in 1922, was an early adopter of self-service retailing in the United Kingdom, and had its heyday during the 1980s. In 1995, Tesco overtook Sainsbury's to become the market leader, and Asda became the second largest in 2003, demoting Sainsbury's to third place for most of the subsequent period until January 2014, when Sainsbury's regained second place.

AndrewApplied to NHS (Graduate Scheme)
I want to recommend Aptitude Tests as one of the best sources for graduate assessment preparation. In fact, the real tests were easier than the ones I practiced here. The explanations also helped me to understand where and why I did mistakes. Thank you, Aptitude Tests!
RameshApplied to Société Générale
During my job application I had to go through a number of numerical and situational tests. Needless to say, I was looking for the best place to practice. Aptitude Tests saved me days, if not weeks. The tests were accurate and the website was easy to use in overall. Thanks!!!
MariaApplied to BAE Systems
Very Good! Although some numerical questions were a bit complicated. Had to practice for a few days to complete everything.
AnnaApplied to AECOM
I practiced situational tests to prepare for AECOM application. It's a great website, if you're limited in time. It would also be fantastic if you had offline mode to practice without interrnet.

Aptitude Tests let me prepare for the tests at Lufthansa. I used mostly logical and numerical tests, but am quite confident other tests are also very helpful in practice. Great value for money.

First thing to know before taking any reasoning test is that those assessments are time limited. You are required to complete the test within the given timeframe (usually 20 to 45 min). Test usually consist of 20-30 questions, where you’re required to choose one or more possible answers from the given list.
Numerical Reasoning Tests assess your ability to work with numbers, graphs, charts and percentages. Verbal Reasoning Tests assess your ability to understand and process the context from the given paragraph. Situational Judgement Tests assess your ability to make critical decisions in a simulated workplace case. Diagrammatic Reasoning Tests assess your logical ability to solve problems. Usually, you will work with sequences and diagrams.
Myth: Practicing a few tests could improve your chances of passing the real assessment.
Fact: You will need to practice a lot. That’s why we include 60+ industry standard aptitude tests with more than 1,500 questions. The more tests you practice, the better chances of getting a good score on the Sainsbury's assessment.
