FAQs

Q) When will my pack arrive?

There is no book or hard copy pack to deliver. All of our service is online, accessed through a username and password. So you get access online instantly after checkout.

Q) Can I see some free samples before I buy?

Yes. Each individual test page has some free samples and you have to go to that specfic page to see the free samples. For example the free numerical tests are on the numerical page. There are also some on the other pages such as the verbal, inductive, diagrammatic, logical, situational judgement, in-tray, error-checking, critical thinking pages etc. Just navigate to the type of test you would like on our website and look for the free samples.

Q) My test isn't working properly.

This is probably to do with the internet browser you are using. Our tests are compatible with about 98% of internet browsers but if you have trouble one of these solutions usually fixes it:

  • Try upgrading your browser to the latest version.
  • Try using a different browser such as Google Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer.

If after trying these you are still getting issues, please contact us and we will investigate.

Q) Will they work on a Mac?

Yes. All AssessmentDay tests run using HTML5 technology and therefore run on any browser and any operating system including smart phones and tables. This includes Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Chrome.

Q) Are your tests useful for preparing for SHL?

Yes. Chartered occupational psychologists write our questions to replicate the same style and format of the major test publishers, which include SHL, Kenexa and Cubiks. In fact, some of our question writers have worked for these same test publishers, so they know what the questions are like. Our questions are not exactly the same questions used by SHL because they hold the copyright to them, but our questions are a close approximation to them.

Q) How difficult are your tests / what level of job selection tests do your tests replicate?

The style and format of all employer ability tests are standardised and consequently our tests will almost certainly be of the same style and format. What does vary between employers and roles however is the difficulty. The difficulty of our tests spans from graduate scheme level to senior management level. If you are applying for something like a director's position at an accountancy firm, you will have to face the most difficult tests available and you will find our practice are easier than your real test. For most jobs however, our tests will cover the level of difficulty you will face for real. For a good idea of how difficult other people rate our tests, see our feedback page.

Q) Where do you get your tests from?

Most of our questions are written by the same chartered occupational psychologists who write the real questions used by employers. The remainder are written by us after dissecting real employer aptitude tests. Either way, you can be sure of the accuracy and relevance of the practice tests contained on our site.
