How to prepare for Cut-e tests

According to Aon, the Cut-e tests do not require any previous knowledge. But if you want to make sure that you are properly prepared, it is always a good idea to practice answering questions.

As mentioned before, Cut-e tests are quite singular in their presentation, with specific layouts and a shorter allotted time. It is important to practice the skills and aptitudes that are being assessed, but also to practice on test questions that are based on the Cut-e concepts and formats, so that you are familiar with the structure and timing. They are quite different to SHL and Kenexa tests, for example.

Before you take the tests required, be sure that you are somewhere that you won’t be disturbed. The benefit of online testing is that you can complete it when it suits you best, so make sure that you are alert and ready before starting. You cannot pause the test and come back to it, so it's important that you don't start if there are any distractions.

How to pass Cut-e tests

Cut-e tests are designed to be tricky, and the short time allotted can make test-takers more nervous. As with all assessments, they are designed to separate candidates in a simple manner, so they are scored to allow for questions to remain unanswered in most cases.

Below are some key tips in ensuring that you perform well in a Cut-e test.


The structure of the test, the testing environment, and the format of each task is different from other assessments that you might have taken from other publishers, so it is a good idea to take specific Cut-e practice tests. Not only will this increase your confidence by making the tests seem more familiar, but it will also highlight any areas where you need more knowledge or practice before you take the real test.

Find a quiet environment

Be sure that there will be no distractions when you take the test. Find a comfortable, quiet area so that you will not be disturbed – it might be best to let anyone in your house know that you are taking a test and need peace and quiet. You cannot pause the test once it has started.

Use a computer

These are online tests, and although the software used is compatible with smartphones and tablets, a PC, laptop or tablet is recommended. Make sure that you have a stable internet connection and the latest browser installed. This will help reduce any technical difficulties that could cause you problems during the test and risk your score.

Suitable equipment

You will not need any additional equipment for most tests, but you might find it useful to have a pen and paper or a calculator to hand for some tests. If these are recommended, you will be informed during the introduction.


Before each test, there is an introduction that describes the exercises that you will be completing. You will need to complete a few example exercises to show that you have understood the instructions, and this must be completed before you can move on to the test itself. As this section is untimed, it is a good idea to take your time here and be sure that you understand how best to answer the questions.

Cut-e Tests FAQs

For most of the psychometric and skills-based Cut-e tests, there are a number of tasks that can be completed in the time frame, so the urgency is part of the skills being assessed. In the personality tests, the statements need more consideration so are not timed, but they are generally completed in 15 to 20 minutes.

Are Cut-e tests difficult?

Cut-e tests are challenging, as they need to be in order to be effective as assessments.
