Why do companies ask to complete psychometric tests?

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.

What is Mechanical Reasoning test?

Mechanical aptitude tests are used as an alternative to complex and expensive IQ tests. The assessment is used as one of the steps in the hiring of engineers and technical staff. However, it is not uncommon for it to be offered to managers, analysts and executives in order to assess their logical thinking skills.

SHL Mechanical test normally includes 5-10 questions with illustrations, where you will be expected to provide most effective response from the given answer options. The time will be limited to around 15-20 minutes or 60-90 sec. per question.

Why do employers use Mechanical Reasoning tests to assess candidates?

The point of assessing candidates with Mechanical tests is to evaluate candidate's knowledge of the simplest laws of physics in real life. More advanced Mechanical aptitude tests may be given to the candidates applying for specific positions, where they are required to understand and use deep concepts of physics.

Many companies, like Arup, HSBC, Bloomberg, Tesco, PwC and others use Mechanical tests to assess graduates and professionals applying to the various positions.

What to know before taking Mechanical Reasoning tests?

We recommend that you read about the simplest laws of 'mechanics', kinetic energy, friction, and Newton's third law of motion. These concepts are commonly used in Mechanical tests. Before test, make sure your laptop is fully charged or plugged into the power source, and your internet connection is stable. A blank sheet of paper and a pencil will also help you write any notes.

SHL-styled online Mechanical tests usually consist of 10-15 questions, where you are required to choose one or more possible answers from the given answer list. In many cases, you are not allowed to travel around the questions, therefore accuracy of your answer choice is important. Platform lets you simulate all possible variations of the assessment: with or without the question travel, time limit, negative marking and more.
