Who are Pearson?
Pearson are the owners of the TalentLens assessment platform who provide a range of psychometric tests including DAT Next Generation and Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test, and renowned Watson Glaser and SOSIE 2nd Generation. They also minister the LNAT, or Law National Aptitude Test.
Watson-Glaser (critical thinking)
The Watson-Glaser test evaluates your ability to analyse and make a decision. It focuses primarily on your ability to draw conclusions based on limited information. It is an opportunity for you to show creative flare and ‘outside the box’ thinking, and is often used by Law firms and other professional practices.
RANRA (Rust Advanced Numerical Reasoning Appraisal)
The RANRA often accompanies a Watson-Glaser test for the recruitment of a more senior role. Similar to the Watson-Glaser, it assesses critical thinking but uses numerical reasoning to do so.
BCAT (Bar course aptitude test)
The Bar Course test is a variation of the Watson-Glaser test, used for Barristers to claim their place on the Bar Professional Training Course
UKCAT (UK Clinical Aptitude test)
The UKCAT is used for medicine and dentistry school admissions in the UK. It is a timed, multiple-choice test designed to assess your cognitive abilities.
Iris Situational Judgement
Targeted at graduate level, this test will present you with work-like scenarios that you will have to make decisions on. We have created a page dedicated to situational judgement where you can find more information about these types of tests.
Pearson Numerical Reasoning Assessment
This is a newer addition to the Pearson TalentLens portal. Whilst it is based on the concept of a traditional numerical reasoning assessment, there is a fresh approach to it that introduces some new concepts to numerical reasoning.
