army aptitude tests

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.

Army Tests FAQs

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.

    What I liked about the test is that it’s testing the intelligence of a person and it requires a fast thinker. What I dislike is the time set for the test, it requires more time to endure.

    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

    Knowledgeable test

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