Frequently Asked Questions
Online Test Practice
What is an online test?
What are the common types of online tests?
There are many different types of online tests. However, common types include numerical reasoning tests, situational judgement tests, verbal reasoning tests and inductive (logical) reasoning tests. Some companies now started using game-based assessments as part of their online assessment. Although administered by different companies, the majority of the tests are provided by a handful of major online test providers. Hence, the style and format of the questions can be repetitive.
What is the best way to prepare for an online test?
The simple answer is to practice. But you need to practice in the right way to make sure that you do not waste your time. First, you need to know where you stand. This can be achieved by trying our basic tests. If they are not challenging enough for you, you can then progress to more advanced ones. If you find the basic level tests challenging, more practice is required.
Another tip: you need to understand what type of tests are used by the companies that you are applying for. This will allow you to practice in a more targeted way and save you time.
How does Learn and Pass help me prepare for online tests?
Here, you can practice Numerical Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning, Situation Judgement and Logical Reasoning Tests. These are the most common types of tests used by major employers. You start with basic tests to understand if you are ready for real assessment-style questions. If you are more advanced, you can start practising our real assessment style questions in the challenge zone, which will help you understand the format and style of actual online tests. When you sit your actual online tests, you will be surprised by how familiar you are with the environment.
When should I sit the actual online test?
When you are ready! By practising our online assessment style tests, you will know when you are ready. You will see your results and feedback at the end of each test, including advice as to what you should do next. Once you are reliably passing our tests, you are ready for the real assessments.
My online test is in only a few days. What should I do?
You know which company you are applying for and what kind of tests they will have. Usually, the information will be on the company’s website. Otherwise, you can find out by logging into their application system without starting the test itself. Once you have found out, start practising accordingly. It is important to practice before every actual assessment.
I am applying for an internship/graduate scheme. Can I use your test to practice?
Of course. Our tests are developed with students and graduates in mind. Although everyone will benefit, students and recent graduates will find our tests particularly helpful.
Is the video interview simulation similar to the real digital/video interviews?
Yes. It is similar to the real video/digital interviews you will see. During the simulation/mock interview, questions will be displayed on your screen. You can then record your answers when you are ready.
Why should I use Video Interview Ready?
Did you know that a lot of job applicants fail the video/digital interview because they have never had one and are not familiar with how it works? This is your chance to practice and become familiar with the procedure so that you will be more comfortable in your actual interview. Plus, your submission will be reviewed by our experts and you will receive feedback for improvement. This is the best way of learning.
Will my responses be reviewed by an AI?
No. They will be reviewed by our career advisors and your feedback will be tailored for you. We do not provide generic system-generated feedback.
What kind of feedback do I receive?
We will review the content of your submission as well as your overall performance, including your gestures, language and general impression. We will then either call you or email you to discuss your performance with you. We will also advise you on how to make improvements.
I submitted my recording a few days, but I have not heard from you. What should I do?
Please reach out to us via email@example.com. When you reach out to us, please confirm your first name and last name that you used to submit your interview recording.
Do you share my recordings with anyone else?
Absolutely not. We do not work with any external organisations or third parties where we share your interview recordings.
Why is your Job Interview Pro e-learning course subscription based?
This is to reduce your cost. If you spend one hour a day, it may take around 15 days to complete the entire e-learning course, including all exercises. However, you may want to take it slow. 3 months are more than enough for you to learn the entire course and improve your interview skills. You do not have to get life-long access and pay expensive fees, which can be the case for many other e-learning courses.
What should I do if I have a question during the e-learning?
If you have any questions during the e-learning, you can simply use the Q&A function to ask questions. We will get back to you at our earliest convenience.
3 months have passed, but I have not completed my learning. What should I do?
If you have not completed your learning, please simply re-subscribe. You can continue from where you left off. Please bread in mind that we cannot offer an extension.
What will happen after 3 months?
You will lose access to the content after 3 months. Therefore, we strongly recommend you set aside some time every day for learning.
Can I get a refund after my purchase?
You may be eligible for a refund in some circumstances. Please read the course benefits and our T&Cs carefully before purchasing.
CV & Cover Letter
How long does it take for a CV or Cover Letter to be reviewed?
Generally, it takes 48 – 72 hours to review them if you provide all the required information on time and respond quickly to the reviewer’s questions. We recommend that you keep an eye out for emails or phone calls from us.
What does review until satisfied mean for a CV or Cover Letter review?
For both CVs and Cover Letters, once we have sent you the draft version, you must provide feedback within 48 hours. If you are happy, we will send you the final version in Word and PDF. Once finalised, no further amendments will be made, unless we made an error. If you are not satisfied with the draft, we will ask for specific feedback and review it again for you. We use an industry-standard format that is widely accepted by the UK employers. We prepare Cover Letters according to the position and company information that you provide.
Note: if you do not provide feedback within 48 hours, we assume that you are happy with the draft.
