What is an aptitude test?
An aptitude test is an assessment used to determine a candidate’s cognitive ability or personality. They’re extremely common in job assessments as they can be used to predict the likelihood of a candidate’s success in a job role, whilst eliminating any bias through its standardised administration. You are likely to encounter them in selection for all job sectors; however, they will be specialised to cater for the specific job requirements of the role.
What are the different types of aptitude test?
Aptitude tests come in many different forms due to the range of skills required for different roles. Generally, they fall into two categories: verbal and non-verbal. Common non-verbal tests such as numerical reasoning or inductive reasoning, assess your ability to handle numerical data, patterns and problem-solving. Verbal tests such as verbal reasoning, comprehension and situational judgement tests are focused on your ability to analyse verbal data and make astute decisions.

Practice Improves Your Test Performance
With practice vs. without practice. Results of people’s performance before and after practice show improvements of up to +25%. The scientific literature shows that ‘practice effects’ exist. It is reasoned that the reason practice effects exist is because candidates expend less mental energy dealing with the newness of the situation and have more free mental energy to allocate to answering the question.
