Established over 30 years ago, Hudson is a leading provider of talent profiling assessments. It enables employers to reduce hiring risk, improve quality of hire and take the unconscious bias out of hiring decisions, through the use of specialised data.

I’ve practiced hundreds of numerical questions and still have plenty more to try.

How to pass the Hudson Test (5 key tips)

1) Be prepared

Make sure that you are sufficiently hydrated and rested before sitting the test. This means making sure you get plenty of sleep the night before and having a glass of water to hand.

Set aside adequate time so that you aren’t feeling rushed and are able to dedicate your full concentration to the task, and make sure that you are taking the test in a quiet place where you are unlikely to be disturbed or interrupted.

2) Connection and hardware

Your assessment is online, meaning that a reliable and fast internet speed is paramount. It is advisable to keep a couple of pens and some paper to hand.

3) Read the instructions

Although the Hudson Tests are timed, to give yourself the best chance of answering correctly, don’t be tempted to scan through the information given. Skimming through information can lead to easy mistakes being made.

4) Learn from your mistakes

When practising questions, always invest time reviewing the questions you get wrong. You’ll learn more from these than from the questions you get right.

5) Practice (a lot)

By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail, as Benjamin Franklin once said. You can never be over-prepared. Getting used to the format of the test, as well as the different types of questions you’ll need to get to grips with, is vital. Practicing will also increase your sense of confidence and help you to answer questions faster and with greater accuracy.

Practice Aptitude Tests is not associated with Hudson. We provide preparation services for Hudson psychometric tests. Our tests are not designed to be identical to any style, employer or industry. Visit to find out more.

How do you prepare for the Business Attitudes Questionnaire?

Whilst it’s good practice to run through the questionnaire beforehand, it’s important to remember to be yourself and be truthful with your answers throughout. There are no right or wrong answers, so the best way to approach this part of the test is to be candid and true to yourself.

How is the Hudson Test scored?

After completion of all three tests, the recruiter is given a report with an overall score and level, with three sub-scores reflecting your working style, or strengths.

Which companies are known to use the Hudson Test?

Numerous companies use Hudson tests for their recruitment assessments; perhaps the best-known of these is VISA.

Reviews of our Hudson tests

What our customers say about our Hudson tests

    Ensure quiet surroundings and be well equipped

    I did enjoy the exercises, very exciting. On a small screen it is difficult to consult data and a calculator at the same time.

  • Croatia

    April 14, 2022

    Challenging and I used calculator on my mobile phone which did not help with speed.

    Need to scroll down in order to see Q so I was not able to see the graph and the question at the same time.

  • Portugal

    February 08, 2022


    Interesting and clear graphs. However, the data and question could not be presented on the same page simultaneously.

  • Belgium

    September 24, 2021

    Good impression of what to expect

    It's a good impression on what to expect and how to prepare yourself. I could test multiple setups (paper, calculator...)

  • Australia

    August 29, 2021

    I didn't realise how rusty I was

    I found it more challenging then past attempts as I haven't had to interpret data like this in years.

  • France

    June 13, 2021

    A bit confusing: different from the tests samples at Hudson website

    The tests here are very different from the samples provided on the Hudson website (most of Hudson test samples were about reading complex tables, while here is it basically graphs).

  • Belgium

    Is ok, but rather easy - depending on my score. Furthermore at hudson you get 1:30 per question, here 20min overall = easier/you can spread/manage time better

  • Poland

    April 17, 2021

    Quickly grasp what is being asked.

    The punctuation of the first airline question question seemed wrong, thus making the interpretation of the question difficult

  • Belgium

    April 06, 2021

    Perfect test for practicing

    The layout and type of questions were super!

  • Thailand

    April 01, 2021

    there is a pattern

    gather base information in the first unique question. It's a nightmare for someone who feel anxious under time constraint, but that's probably the point.
