How to Pass Clevry (Criterion) Tests

1) Familiarise yourself with Clevry tests. The format, structure and content of psychometric tests varies according to the publisher and test type. Ensure you are ready for your assessments by becoming accustomed to the style of the Clevry questions you will be presented with for each test.

2) Pay attention to your pace. Clevry tests are timed, so you need to answer the questions quickly and accurately to achieve a high score. Seek to achieve the target pace in practice, so you will be able to comfortably replicate it in the real test.

3) Don’t get stuck on a question. If you’re finding a particular question tricky, don’t spend too much time on it. It is better to take your best guess and move on, rather than jeopardise your chances of completing the test.

4) Read the questions carefully. Although time will be tight, reading the questions carefully is crucial to your success. It is easy to misinterpret psychometric test questions if you do not pay attention to the detail or nuance. This is especially the case with verbal reasoning assessments.

5) Practice both your weaknesses and your strengths. When preparing for your tests, it is important to focus upon areas in which you are less confident to improve your performance. Don’t forget to also practice the topics in which you feel you are strong. This is to confirm and hone your skills specifically for the psychometric test, as even familiar topics can catch candidates out due to their presentation within the tests.

By taking a moment to understand the structure and types of questions on Practice Aptitude Tests, you begin to demystify the process. This simple step can do wonders for reducing test-day jitters.

2Simulate the Test Environment

Hey future job-getter, here’s a tip that can take your test prep from good to great: simulate the real deal. That’s right, create a mock exam environment. Settle into a quiet space, have a timer handy, and take practice tests in one go. Why, you ask? It’s all about building that test-taking stamina and getting comfy with the time pressure. And the best part? The more you practice under real conditions, the more confident and ready you’ll feel on the actual test day.

3Understand the Questions

It’s not just about answering questions correctly; it’s about knowing why they’re the right answers. Devote some time to really get the logic and reasoning behind the types of questions Clevry puts forward. Sometimes the way to the right answer is about recognizing patterns or connecting the dots just right. Head over to Practice Aptitude Tests and take a deep dive into our explanation sections. Seeing the ‘why’ behind the ‘what’ can truly up your test-taking game.

4Pace Yourself

Pacing is everything! Remember Goldilocks? You’ve got to find that pace that’s just right. Not too fast that you miss the important details, not too slow that you don’t finish. Test-taking is an art, and time management is the brush you paint with. On Practice Aptitude Tests, we help you find that sweet spot, so that when you’re faced with a Clevry test, you know just how to balance speed and accuracy.

5Keep Calm and Carry On

Your mind is your most powerful tool, especially in a testing situation. A cool, calm head can think critically and make sound decisions. We know it’s easier said than done, but do your best to keep those nerves in check. Maybe try some deep breathing or visualization techniques before starting the test. Being mentally prepared is just as important as knowing the material. So, take a deep breath, and let’s ace that Clevry test together with Practice Aptitude Tests!
