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.

Include timers for each question
I wish they timed each individual question, same as the Talent Q test does

1) Read questions carefully 2) Be aware of the time

Individual questions should be timed, vs overall timing.

Pretty fun overall, need to consider time better

Mouse-over caused data set to change
Mouse-over caused data set to change - this led me to become very confused with early questions. To be honest though, I could complete the questions but not quickly. Even if there wasn't a problem with the data sets I would be lucky to achieve 50%. I can do the math but not that quickly.

How to calculate percentages
All about percentage calculation. Fun & challenging

Type of questions
I would prefer to have specific time for each question compared to specific time for the whole test.

I would have preferred to have a pen and paper next to me
I think it was pretty clear what was asked for, and I liked that it was easy to see how much time I had left.

Interesting questions; not too difficult timing and content
Concentration is key. I liked that it was possible to go back to previous questions.
February 04, 2021
Keep an eye on the axes and what is actually being asked, and it's fine.
