Employers may also replicate assessment centre activities online - you can try the experience for yourself with our online assessment centre activities. If you've never heard of an assessment centre before, or experienced one, start with some background learning.
Once you've done that, or you have some experience, practice online.
Psychometric Tests, also called Aptitude Tests
We have established a partnership with Graduates First so that you can benefit from aptitude tests while preparing for your internships/job interviews, both during and after your degree.
Available assessments include those relating to numerical, verbal and logical reasoning, situational judgement, workplace personality, critical thinking, gamified approaches and a wealth of tools relating to video interviews and assessment centres.
All tests come with worked solutions to accelerate your learning and professional score reports, which analyse your results and identify areas of weaknesses and what needs to be improved.
The Graduates First main site also offers other job assessment preparation solutions for students including detailed step-by-step guides to over 100 top graduate employer's recruitment stages and hints on how to pass their assessment processes.
