Details on the Jaguar/Land Rover Psychometric Tests can be found below:

 

Jaguar/ Land Rover Situational Judgement Test

Jaguar/ Land Rover Situational Judgment Test is a set of questions assessing how you might react to hypothetical events and situations that might be encountered in the Jaguar/ Land Rover workplace environment. Based on your answers to these questions it will be verified how aligned you are with Jaguar/ Land Rover values and behaviors. So do your research and try to memorize them by heart ( might come in handy in the future!).

Whilst Situational Judgement Tests vary in form, usually, candidates are presented with a number of descriptions to which they  are obliged to provide an appropriate response from a multiple choice list. So, upon taking the test try to be as sensible as you can and use the full capacity of your emotional intelligence.

These tests concentrate on your ‘ people skills’ so, good communication and networking abilities should earn you a few points. However, their quite straightforward and simplistic formula can be misleading.

Some questions in the Situational Judgement Test are there to trick you.  The catch is in the high probability of any of the presented answers. So although it is recommended to think in accordance with the promoted values outlined in the company’s profile, in order to really ace your performance you might want to work on your situational- judgment muscles while taking the practice version of Situational Judgment Tests.

 

Jaguar/ Land Rover Verbal Reasoning Test

The Jaguar/ Land Rover Verbal Reasoning Test comprises of a series 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.

By presenting you with the Verbal Reasoning Tests, people from Jaguar/ Land Rover want to verify your understanding of the written word, as well as your dexterity when it comes to filtering out the key information from a bulk of the text. Here, please take a moment and imagine a pile of emails residing in your future Inbox, waiting to be read and replied. Not easy, huh?

To get the necessary confidence and speed up things, practice some Verbal Reasoning Tests now.

 

Jaguar/ Land Rover Numerical Reasoning Test

The multiple choice Jaguar/ Land Rover  Numerical Test assesses your ability to evaluate, analyze, and interpret numerical information that will be 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.

Built on maths reasoning questions, these tests are often written in the context of everyday business activities to check candidate’s ability to work with numerical information.

We know that you can do it, but If you really want to master the Rolls Royce Online Numerical Test  – it can be easily learned through our online tests and video tutorials available on the website.

 

Jaguar/ Land Rover Diagrammatic/ Logical Reasoning Tests

These 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 be careful –  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.

Questions are comprised of numbers, figures, and shapes arranged in a particular pattern. Your task as the brainy Jaguar/ Land Rover employee -to – be,  is to deduce the underlying logic of patterns presented to you  in an exercise and guess what is next to follow.

To know how to correctly identify the missing steps, you need to practice these tests like a demon – so try now, to avoid regrets in the future.

 

Jaguar/ Land Rover Assessment Centre

If everything went well you would be invited to one of the Jaguar/ Land Rover headquarters to attend the Assessment Centre. On that day you will be challenged with a mix of group and individual exercises. Depending on the career path you want to pursue in Jaguar/ Land Rover you might be asked to attend one of the following:

Technical and Behavioural Interviews –  these interviews might take up to 45 minutes in total. It’s a standard one-to-one interview during which you will need to talk about your past achievements and future plans. A good knowledge of the company Behavioural Framework and a visible interest in learning new things should earn you a few points. Technical parts of Jaguar/ Land Rover Interview include questions directly relating the job position and industry you are applying for.

In- Tray Exercise –  One of the possible scenarios could be a situation when you need to plunge into a managerial role, during which you receive a bunch of emails that have to be responded in accordance with the business strategy the Jaguar/ Land Rover company is executing.

Group Exercise –  These exercises will vary,  but the general skills that the assessors are looking for is a good balance between teamwork and leadership skills. You might want everyone in the room to see your great leadership skills, but approach the group exercise rather as a test of your collaborative and teamwork abilities than a show of a directorship. One of the most probable ways of verifying these skills is through a group discussion on a divisive topic or a collaboration on a draft of a project.

Presentation –  you will be given a topic and some time to prepare during the assessment centre day. The presentation usually is a 10 minute presentation followed by series of questions. If you don’t feel confident giving speeches, it is probably wise to practice your presentation skills beforehand. You can check the Assessment Centre Guide, for useful tips on how to prepare.
