Samsung Psychometric Tests
Psychometric tests are a key component of Samsung’s Application Process. Upon filing the application, you will be asked to complete the following tests : Verbal Reasoning Test, Numerical Reasoning Test, Logical Reasoning Test. Details on the psychometric tests used by Samsung can be found below.
Samsung Verbal Reasoning Test
Samsung Situational Judgment Test is a set of questions assessing how you might react to hypothetical events and situations that might be encountered in the Samsung workplace environment. Based on your answers to these questions it will be verified how aligned you are with Samsung values and behaviors. So do your research and try to memorize them by heart.
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.
Samsung Numerical Reasoning Test
The multiple – choice Samsung 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.
We know that you can do it, but If you really want to master the Samsung Numerical Test – it can be easily learned through our online tests and video tutorials available on the website.
Samsung Diagrammatic/ Logical Reasoning Test
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 Samsung 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.
Samsung Assessment Centre
Congratulations, you made it to the last level! The Samsung Assessment Centres are usually a mix of individual and group activities. The exercises will differ depending on the job position you are applying for, but it is recommended to be well prepared for all possible scenarios in order to truly stand out from the crowd.
Presentation / Case Study – This stage could take two forms. You might be given a topic to research and prepare your presentation beforehand, or you will be supplied with materials during the actual assessment centre and have limited time to prepare. Anyhow, it is important that you practice your presentation skills. If you are not a born speaker and feel like you could use a little bit more advice, you can check the Assessment Centre Guide, for more useful tips.
One- to – One Interview – This will be a typical behavioural interview validating your skills and detecting strengths necessary for the job in the particular banking sector. If you need an advice – don’t just list your skills, try to find a variety of examples to prove them. Showing your motivation and commercial awareness should earn you a few extra points.
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. The most common way of verifying these skills is through a group discussion on a divisive topic of or a scenario of hypothetical difficulties the company is facing.
