Technical Aptitude Tests Tips
1Prepare your own toolkit
Whether you need to sharpen your technical skills or learn everything from scratch, taking some mock tests will help. It might not help you achieve technical brilliance but will definitely improve your performance. Practice will also save you sleepless nights before the real assessment day by improving accuracy, speed and confidence. And you will need a good night’s sleep.
2Watch your timing
Don’t get stuck on one question. Work out roughly how much time you have per question before you start each test (think of it as a good warm-up) and try to stick to those timings. If it feels tough, keep going anyway and remember the easiest questions might be to come.
3Practice in exam conditions
When you practice for your assessment, try to do so in the same conditions in which you will be sitting your real technical aptitude tests. Try quiet surrounding with a minimal distraction at a table. This will not only keep you more focused but also make silence less daunting while sitting your real assessment.
4Ask the expert
Look at our explanations to see how we’ve come up with the solutions. Understanding the thought process, how the question is broken down and the steps involved is an excellent way to simplify difficult questions.
5Carry out post mortems
Sure, technical aptitude tests won’t kill you, but you should assess which areas you’re getting wrong. That way you can focus on practicing them which will improve your performance on the tests as a whole.
6Do your research
Find out from your employer what type of psychometric assessments they are going to want you to sit. If you’re not sure simply ask them! Each job is different so the assessments will vary but as a starting point visit our top employers.
7Don't be complacent
There are sometimes 100+ applicants per place for the most sought after roles. Your competition will be prepared so make sure you are too. The more you practice, the better prepared you’ll be.
