BAE Systems Tests
BAE Systems is the UK’s largest security and defence company. It designs and manufactures technology and vehicles for land, sea and air combat, as well as cyber intelligence, commercial and military electronics, and ‘future technologies’ like virtual reality.
After using the platform for two weeks, I’ve never felt more prepared for an Aptitude test.Ethan used Practice Aptitude Tests to improve his situational judgement scores. Start your success story
BAE no longer holds assessment centres, on the basis that they do not make the recruitment process as inclusive as BAE would like it to be. Instead, there are two interview stages in the application process:
For this, you will be asked to record responses to set questions, which are later reviewed by the hiring staff. These are strength-based interviews, so the questions will be framed in more positive language that encourages you to share your passions to find out more about you and what you excel at.
When in the interview, remember to take it as seriously as a regular, live interview. That means you should make sure you are visually presentable, your surroundings are tidy, and there are no distractions or interruptions while you are recording.
Depending on restrictions, this may be given in person or digitally, and is more like a regular interview. You will meet with relevant staff in the field, so make sure that you know the job expectations and your CV thoroughly to impress them.
Again, this will be a strength-based interview, drawing on the information that they learnt from your virtual interview, which should mean that you have the chance to go into more detail about your passions and successes.
It’s important to show why you want to work for BAE Systems and why this particular role caught your attention. Research the company and find out about its recent business developments – particularly in your area of expertise – so you can show you have an interest in the future of the company and where you see yourself fitting into that.
Keep in mind the company’s cultural values: trusted, innovative, and bold. This is a great starting point for how you want to present yourself and your experiences to the interviewer.
Interviews can be extremely nerve-wracking, especially when you’re passionate about the role, so take a look at some interview tips to make sure that you feel prepared and ready.

Reviews of our BAE systems tests
What our customers say about our BAE systems tests

There was a good amount of difficulty to the questions, which I would expect from the real assessment.
October 07, 2021
A lot of questions are not worded good and you need to make it known that if you move the cursor over the figures it reveals values.
September 23, 2021
Gave an insight into the speed at which tests take place and how quickly you have to pick key information from questions. Very difficult to understand some graphs such as those about holidays without graph title mention person number.

Slightly glitchy but helpful
I found my page to be glitching sometime when trying to interact with the graphs. It seemed to be taking me to the previous page but taking me right back again, I am on my phone if that helps. Apart from that, great thank you.

You need a calculator
I felt a lot of it was repetitive. The questions were similar and your score is dependant on how fast you can enter numbers into a calculator.
