How to pass Talent Q tests
Familiarising yourself with the question style, format and time pressures of the test is the single best way you can improve your score and get through the selection process. Keep working on the areas that don’t come as naturally to you; you’ll be surprised at how quickly you improve if you practice consistently.
2. Get rid of distractions
It’s important to take the test in a quiet environment that’s free from distractions, whether you’re doing a mock test or the real thing. You have so little time to answer each question that it’s really important to focus.
3. Ensure everything is working
Whether you take the test at home or at an assessment centre, make sure your internet connection is strong and everything is in working order before you start. As well as ensuring you can take the test without having to stop, it’ll allow you to focus on answering the questions.
4. Don’t overlook the practice questions at the start of the test
They’re there to help you – and they might just settle your nerves and get your head in the right place before you embark on the real test.
5. Answer honestly
It’s the best way to ensure your true character is reflected in your answers and it’s inevitable that if you don’t, you’ll only get tripped up further down the line.
How are Talent Q tests scored?
The tests are scored by comparing your result to a benchmark, or the group who took the test at the same time as you. There’s no official pass or fail score; it will depend on how well you did compared to your peers.
What's the difference between Talent Q and Korn Ferry tests?
Korn Ferry is the administrative body which delivers the Talent Q tests. The Talent Q tests were taken on by the Hay Group in 2014, and Korn Ferry is part of that group.
Which employers use Talent Q tests?
A range of businesses big and small use the Talent Q tests to get personalised and detailed information on the candidates they’re assessing before hire. Recognisable companies that use Talent Q include Royal Mail, Carling, Lloyds, Virgin Atlantic and Ford, to name a few.
How will I take my Talent Q test?
Either at home or at an assessment centre. The test will be taken online and is compatible with mobile phones, computers and other devices. However some of the drop-downs appear differently on certain devices, so a laptop or computer is usually recommended.

I found the time ticking stressful and the context was new to me, so overall, not knowing what to expect.

Have to know common maths and situational understanding
I like this aptitude test because it's based on environmental and social topics, but it got me a little confused.

It's an eye opener
i didn't know what to expect and found it important not to get frustrated with prolonged sections revolving around the same information

You need to be fast!
I dislike that the question is hard to understand for the team A and team B winning player. Give a sport example for us to understand the winning system.

Gives real practice with time pressure. I didn't understand the first graph at all, should have skipped it.

These tests require lot of learning
I think these tests are best for graduates. Looks like I looked for the wrong thing, it's very academic.

Timed test provides numerical examples of graphical questions
Timed test was very helpful in providing variety of graph-related questions, 1 test is free as well. Really appreciate practiceaptitudetests as there are not many sites out there with these questions.

I did not know what to expect, appreciate having a pen and paper nearby to scribble things down and structure my mind. Not enough time for me to complete.
