Barclays Psychometric Tests

Psychometric tests are a key component of Barclays ’s Application Process. Depending on the Graduate Program route the candidates are taking, they might be required to sit Numerical Reasoning Tests, Diagrammatic/ Logical Reasoning Tests, Situational Judgement Tests, and Personality Tests. Details on Barclays’s psychometric tests can be found below.

Barclays Numerical Reasoning Test

The multiple - choice Barclays Numerical Reasoning Test assesses your ability to evaluate, analyse, and interpret numerical information that is provided to you in charts, graphs, and tables. You will have limited time to find a correct answer, so all the calculations like percentages, ratios, and basic arithmetic should be executed quickly and accurately. We know that you can do it, but If you really want to master the Barclays Numerical Reasoning Test - it can be easily learned through our online tests and video tutorials available on the website.

Barclays Diagrammatic / Logical Reasoning Test

Barclays diagrammatic tests will assess your sequence and pattern identification skills, logical thinking and ability to approach a problem and how good you are at solving it. But it’s easier said than done. You have a limited time to do it - a minute or less per question. The difficulty of questions is also likely to increase gradually. Therefore, good timing is vital.

Barclays Situational Judgement Test

The Barclays Situational Judgement Test is a set of questions assessing how you might react to hypothetical events and situations that might be encountered in the Barclay’ s workplace environment. This will be a litmus test for your values, assessing if they match with the company’s culture. So do your research and try to memorise them by heart (might come in handy in the future!).

Barclays Personality Test

In essence, Barclays Personality Test will assess if you fit the specific role you are applying for and the work culture at Barclays. But other than that, it also aims to decipher your mind and see what kind of person you are, what motivates you, and where your weakness lies. We don’t need you remind you, that the answers should be honest as these tests are designed to point out any discrepancies, however, it’s also important to remember that some qualities for a specific job might be worth stressing more than others.

Barclays Verbal Reasoning Test

The Barclays Verbal Reasoning Test comprises of a series of paragraphs which you will be required to read and a set of questions matching the information provided in paragraphs. Your answer options will be True, False or Cannot Tell.

Barclays Video Interview

If you are invited for the Barclays Video Interview you will be provided with an access to a platform that will record your responses.

Barclays E-tray Exercise

Before you skip this section, we have to clarify - it’s not just the ‘e-mail skills’, so you might want to consider preparing yourself for this exercise as well. In fact, rather than checking your e-mail literacy Barclays ’s E-Tray exercise is another simulated work task measuring your probable performance in the company’s workplace.

The exercise is usually integrated with other selection procedures ( might pop up during Business Insight Stage or the actually assessment center), and correspond with your future day- to- day responsibilities, as it is tailored to the company, but also to the role you are applying for.

Barclays Business Meeting - Assessment Centre

Congratulations, you made it to the last level! This will be a one-shot meeting, that might last from 3.5 to 5 hours. Barclays Business Meeting is made up of two parts - a case study and one-to-one interview.
