Aptitude test is a type of standardised assessment (e.g. exam) used to determine job candidate's ability to solve numerical, verbal, logical and situational problems. Aptitude (or psychological, reasoning, ability) tests are mostly used by mid-to-large companies around the world at the early stages of the interview during candidate screening.
When you apply for a job at a company there is a high chance that you will be asked to complete online tests. Depending on what role you are applying, tests may differ (e.g. Numerical, Verbal, Logical, Situational.) These tests are designed to assess your ability to work with data, either numerical, verbal or visual. Once you complete the tests, a recruiter can then decide whether to proceed to the next interview stage.
There are many types of reasoning tests, but the most commonly used are:
Numerical Reasoning tests are one of the most popular types of tests used in mid-to-large companies around the World. Primarily, Numerical tests are used to assess candidate’s ability to work with numbers, percentages, charts and graphs. This is especially important if you are applying to Engineering, Consultancy or other position, where you are required to work with numbers.
Verbal Reasoning tests assess candidate’s ability to understand and process the context from the given paragraph. When taking Verbal reasoning assessment, for each question you will be given a short text passage and one question, where you are expected to give an answer of ‘True’, ‘False’ or ‘Cannot Answer.‘ Verbal reasoning tests are widely used in companies, like NHS, BBC, BT Group, Lloyds Bank, RBS, AECOM and many others in between the recruitment stages. You will be invited to complete Verbal reasoning assessment after you submit an application form or during your group exercise.
Situational Judgement tests help employers to assess candidate's reactions to conflicts and unusual situations in the workplace, as well as their managerial style. On the basis of candidate's answers a recruiter will determine whether candidate conforms to the position and the values of a particular company. The variety of situational scenarios allows assessing candidate's soft skills and how they perform in different situational under pressure. A typical Situational test consist of the scenario, question and possible answers. It must be noted that the type of answer can be either multiple choice, sort (best and worst response), and complex response sort (least effective to most effective response.)
Logical Reasoning tests are designed to determine a candidate's abstract and logical thinking. Logical assessment may consist of special diagrams, geometric shapes and other lined up images, where a candidate has to continue the row in a logically correct way.
Diagrammatic Reasoning tests are widely used with Inductive and Logical assessment. Diagrammatic tests assess candidate's ability to make logical decisions and solve complex problems. During a Diagrammatic Reasoning test you will be given a sequence of images and a list of responses.
Inductive Reasoning tests are widely used with Diagrammatic and Logical assessment. Inductive tests assess candidate's ability to make logical decisions and solve complex problems, applying analytical and critical decision making skills. During an Inductive Reasoning test you will be given a sequence of images and a list of responses.
Mechanical Reasoning tests are designed to determine the logical and abstract thinking skills of candidates. During a Mechanical assessment, a candidate is given an image with a problem to solve. Usually the context of the problem is related to physics and geometry. Mechanical Reasoning tests are usually given to the graduate and professional candidates, applying to Engineering and Development roles.
