IMI Aptitude Tests
IMI situational judgement test
To understand how you behave in the workplace, a situational judgement test presents a number of fictional yet realistic work-based scenarios.
Each scenario presents a challenging situation with several possible outcomes, and you have to decide which course of action is the most appropriate – and most likely how you would behave in that situation.
Your problem-solving ability is being assessed here as much as how you deal with work problems.
IMI numerical reasoning test
In the numerical reasoning assessment, you will be given some data that is presented in a graph or table, and asked a question about it.
The question usually has multiple-choice answers, and you will need to read, understand and analyse the data, then perform some basic mathematical operations to find the right answer.
This is not a maths test, but it is an assessment of your ability to work logically with numerical data.
IMI verbal reasoning test
In a verbal reasoning assessment, you will be presented with a paragraph of information, usually written in corporate speak or formal language. In a timed assessment, you will need to quickly read, understand and analyse the text so as to answer the question that follows.
Using the information provided, you will have to decide if the statement that follows is true, false, or whether you cannot say.
