Co-operative Bank tests

The Co-operative Bank, founded in 1872, set out with a commitment to provide an ethical banking alternative for the general public. Today it is the UK’s leading ethical bank, having received the highest ESG rating of any UK high street bank.

After using the platform for two weeks, I’ve never felt more prepared for an Aptitude test.

Assessment centre

Depending on the role, you may be asked to take part in a Co-op assessment centre day. This is a full day consisting of group interviews, presentations, and hypothetical scenario-based exercises, all carried out with other applicants.

Naturally, this demonstrates how well you are able to collaborate with others and adapt to unforeseen circumstances. Both qualities are integral to all business functions and at the heart of The Co-operative Bank’s people-led ethics.

Co-op SHL-style test

When applying for a role at The Cooperative Bank, you will be asked to complete a series of SHL aptitude tests at one or more stages of the application process.

These tests measure a candidate’s numerical, verbal, inductive and deductive reasoning, helping to assure recruiters that they would be a competent team member.

Numerical reasoning

The numerical reasoning test will mostly focus on statistics, your ability to interpret graphs, tables and charts, and logical analysis. These tests will also measure basic arithmetic, percentages, averages and other general numerical skills.

If you’re nervous about this element of the application, read more on how best to prepare for numerical assessments.

Verbal reasoning

Verbal reasoning assessments test your comprehension of written passages. You will be required to read, interpret and analyse a short passage of text, offering answers based on a multiple-choice system.

All of the information you need to answer the questions correctly will be within the text, so attention to detail and a good understanding of the English language (including spelling and grammar) is the key to success. You can practice free verbal reasoning questions here.

Inductive reasoning

Inductive reasoning tests offer employers insight into how you would approach new rules and situations, whilst also assessing your creativity and ability to think laterally. Inductive reasoning tests do this by asking you to identify the relationships between shapes and figures, spotting rules and patterns, and applying these to find the answer.

The best way to prepare for this type of assessment is to take as many practice tests as possible. That way you are less likely to panic when facing the real test. You can access free inductive reasoning practice questions here.

Deductive reasoning

A deductive reasoning test assesses your ability to draw the right conclusion from a set of truths. You will be given a a scenario and expected to follow a top-down-logic to reach the correct conclusion from a list of multiple-choice answers.

Employers use these tests to get a better understanding of your problem-solving and critical thinking abilities. Prepare for these assessments with free deductive reasoning practice tests.

Situational judgement

For The Co-operative Bank a situational judgement test will be role-dependent, mostly deployed for leadership positions. It asks a series of hypothetical workplace scenarios, and you then select from multiple answers, which gives the company an insight into your judgement and character traits.

If you are applying for a leadership role, we would recommend practicing this style of test to better prepare for the real thing. Practice situational judgement questions for free here.
