Numerical Reasoning

The American Express numerical reasoning test comprises of a number of questions, usually 20, to be answered in an allotted time. Generally you are given one minute per question. They relate to graphs, percentages and tables whereby you will be asked to analyse data and chose from a set of multiple choice answers. This is designed to measure your numerical abilities.

Diagrammatic / Logical Reasoning

The American Express diagrammatic reasoning test comprises of questions relating to sequences of shapes and patterns. In each question there will be a missing step and you will be provided with a number of answers to choose from. These are designed to test your logical reasoning as well analytical and problem-solving skills.

Situational Judgement

The American Express situational judgement test presents you with a series of challenging scenarios that one might encounter in the workplace and then a number of possible responses to the scenario. You then chose which one you feel is the best way to describe how you would react. As with the rest of the tests you will be timed and so it is important that you read the information properly. It is important to know the company values to ensure your answers are best matched with theirs.

Group Exercise

You will be given a group task, usually involving a meeting or business scenario that you will be expected to provide solutions for within the team. You’ll be assessed on how you perform within the group, whether you show strong leadership skills or better support skills. You must be careful to strike a balance between dominating the group and being too passive.

Presentations

This will be assessing your public speaking and presenting skills as well as how you perform under pressure during questions following your presentation. This may also be in the form of a case study.

Role Play

The role play will be based on a scenario provided and you will be assessed on your behaviour, your knowledge and the way you handle certain scenarios. It will be relating to a type of situation that you would be faced with in the job and you will be required to think quickly.
