Psychometric testing

Many graduate employers use psychometric tests as part of the recruitment and selection process for graduate schemes.

Why are psychometric tests used?

Psychometric tests give applicants an equal opportunity to demonstrate their capabilities. They show employers how you are likely to perform in a job, particularly if you have little or no previous experience of the job, and give you feedback as to whether the job is really for you. Psychometric tests may include aptitude or ability tests, personality questionnaires or a combination of both.
