How to prepare for Saville tests

As with any form of psychometric testing, practice is essential for a Saville test. As there are so many test types, it’s vital to know which ones you’ll be sitting – or if taking a Swift assessment, which abilities will be measured throughout.

All tests are based on your natural abilities, so do not require any pre-existing knowledge.

That said, they are not easy, especially since there is added time pressure.

Be sure to sit plenty of practice tests and learn to work quickly with precision.

How to pass Saville tests (5 key tips)

1) Hone your skills

Although there’s no pre-existing knowledge required, you should still make time to revise, or more accurately, improve your abilities. Extend your vocabulary and language comprehension with word games and critical reading for verbal aptitude, or brush up on basic arithmetic for numerical assessments.

Whatever test you’re taking, there are activities that will help you build your skill set.

2) Take practice tests

This is vital, as it will help you understand the structure of Saville tests, question formats, and response options. The more familiar you are with the format, the better prepared you’ll be on the day. Practice tests will also help you work to time constraints.

3) Get set up

Before you start your test (if taking unsupervised) make sure you’re in a quiet environment and that you won’t be interrupted. Check your internet connection and make sure your browser’s up to date. It’s also a good idea to have a pen and paper on hand, for note-taking or calculations.

4) Check details

Never skim-read questions. This is likely to end up in you missing subtle details imperative to the task at hand. Read every question carefully and thoroughly before you attempt to answer.

5) Balance speed and accuracy

Both are important. Employers are looking for attention to detail, but they also want to know you can work with precision under pressure. Try and complete as many questions as you can in the given time frame without compromising on accuracy.

Saville Assessment Tests FAQs

How are Saville tests scored?

There’s no easy answer to this one, as it depends entirely on the test type. Generally speaking, you’ll receive a mark for every correct answer, which will be converted into your total score.

You’ll also receive scores for speed, accuracy and caution. These combine to make your aptitude profile. If taking a Swift assessment, you’ll receive score breakdowns for each section.

Are Saville tests difficult?

Again, difficulty levels vary depending on the level of the position applied for. Graduate, professional and managerial roles tend to make use of more complex assessments, with entry-level roles adopting more straightforward tests.

That said, because of the time pressure, none are easy. But the skills you need can be improved with practice.

How long is a Saville test?

This depends on the test in question. Swift assessments can last anywhere between 9.5 to 24 minutes. Standalone tests vary widely in duration: the shortest is just six minutes, the longest 24.

How will I take my Saville tests?

Saville tests are administered as either supervised or unsupervised versions. Supervised tests are shorter in duration and taken at a designated test centre or within the workplace.

Unsupervised tests are taken online, so can be sat anywhere you feel comfortable.

    Great Practice Test

    This was a good way to familiarize myself with the test and specifically with the timer going on, it gave me an idea of how i need to manage my time in the actual test.

    Logical calculations

    I enjoyed this test, it was quite time pressured and required high level mathematical and timing skills

    First test

    Did not know what to expect. Tried the first few without a calculator then the later ones with one. Time pressure is real.

    How to deal with the questions.

    I was surprised by the questions and did not know how to deal with them, taking a pencil and paper was an option but I didn't have any with me...

    Brain storming

    I like the way the questions come though they are very challenging and I appreciate how it was set, to have a feel of how things go.

    It helped me to prepare

    What I liked is the last questions and what i dislike is that other questions were not clear on which column should one answer from.

    Harder than expected and all maths!

    It was good to get a sample of what to expect. The questions were not what I expected and I wasn't expecting all maths, but it was a good test overall.

    Time is never enough

    It was a good example of numeric reasoning tests. It is clear that time is never enough in these assessment tests. Notes on how one can improve on time would be extremely useful to aid the test takers perform better. I would like to also take the non timed test to gain exposure
