Frequently Asked Questions

What is an online test?
An online test, sometimes also called aptitude test or psychometric test, is an assessment used to determine a candidate’s cognitive ability or personality. They usually come in different forms including cognitive-behavioral tests, numerical reasoning tests and logical reasoning tests etc. Online tests are very common these days, and almost all large organizations use online tests to select suitable candidates.
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 reasoning tests. Some companies now started using game-based assessments as part of their online test. 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.

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 practicing accordingly. It is important to practice before every actual assessment.
