I like math and love the fact that even if i don't pass, I can go back and revise well, come back and resit for it again
Since 1992, anyone who applies to join the army is required to take, and pass, the army aptitude test. Combining numerous psychometric tests, it’s designed to assess the key skills and attributes needed to succeed. Your results determine whether you can join the army, and also what role(s) within the army you’d be best suited to.
Within two hours of practice I have improved my score from 50% correct to 88%.Joseph used Practice Aptitude Tests to improve his numerical reasoning scores. Start your success story
What makes army aptitude tests hard?
The tests are designed to be challenging to help the army recruit the best candidates. You’re also being tested on a wide variety of skills, which means that most people will find at least one section of the test hard. The best way to prepare yourself is to practice as many tests as you can beforehand.
Do soldiers need good maths?
Strong numerical skills are one of the many requirements of army recruits. Being able to work with numbers quickly, accurately and with confidence is a skill set that’s highly sought after in the army.
How long are the army aptitude tests?
The army aptitude tests each take around 30 minutes to complete. You’ll take the test on a computer at your local Army Careers Centre.
What happens if you fail the army aptitude tests?
Unfortunately, if you fail the test this means you won’t be eligible to move forwards with your army application. This is the best possible reason to practice as hard as you can beforehand.

It’s just a test to exercise, so you can fail and try again
I liked the fact that there is the possibility to review all questions before ending the test, but found some questions not related to the army.

You have to understand the question first
What l like is that the questions are easy – but you can fail if you do not understand, you have to solve and not guess.

Could not do any of the calculations
Need to go learn all the percentages and annual returns sums, but also need to find out if you have a calculator in the test or not.

It's really hard
I like the test because it's really challenging. And some of the answers are not in the choices. And the things I don't like in the test was the subject given, because it is mathematics . Hahahaha

The test is very challenging and it needs a lot of focus. Overall it equips one to work harder and smarter.

Curious - but I have a degree in maths
I'm not sure if the time limit is 20 minutes in real life, but if so, this is insanely difficult. Maths is my forte. This is ridiculous.

It was cool ,tricky and so difficult that the time almost beat me. Some of the questions are not understandable, so I had no option to just choose any option of the possible answers. So I don’t actually think I can make more than the average score because I was under pressure.

Tough as a cookie
There was quite a lot of mental challenging math calculations, but I'm glad I got a glimpse of what to expect to ensure that I am well prepared.

I have know idea about it and so I think I will start practicing as time goes on
Actually the questions were in Euro and US Dollars, so it was a bit difficult for me. I didn’t get the concept early but will say I have tried my best, even if I didn’t perform.
