Practice Aptitude Tests
Employers may include an online aptitude test as part of their assessment and selection process. Research has shown that aptitude tests are one of the most consistent predictors or performance at work.
Aptitude tests help you to:
- demonstrate your strengths
- be assessed objectively on criteria relevant to the role
- find out your strengths and identify any development needs
- make career decisions based on your abilities
The objective of these practice tests is to familiarise you with the format of the actual test and working to strict time limits.
You can complete the tests as many times as you like. At the end of the test, you will see onscreen feedback for each question you answered.
The purpose of the practice tests is to familiarise you with the format of the actual test and working to strict time limits.
The difficulty of the example questions does not necessarily represent the difficulty level of the test itself.

Practice Video Interview
Before you do a video interview for an employer, we strongly recommend you do a practice interview first.
So you can test your equipment and experience the interview process we've created a short video interview with three example questions.
Although this is only a practice interview, we recommend you complete the interview as though it was the real thing.
Completing a practice interview will help you become comfortable with the interview process and perform better in the real interview.
Before starting your test or video interview, there are a few things you can do to ensure you perform at your best.
Make sure you get a good night's sleep before taking your test. Take your test in a quiet place where you won't be interrupted.
Ensure your computer, tablet or phone is fully charged. Have a pen and paper available to jot down notes. Have a glass of water to hand.
During your aptitude test, close all other browser tabs and maximise the size of the browser so you can read the questions clearly.
Read each question carefully. Work as fast as you can. Do not spend too much time on any one question. If you find a question too difficult or are unsure of the answer, indicate your best choice and move on quickly.
Try to stay calm; doing a practice test and preparing well should help you feel more at ease.
If possible, do your interview in a quiet, well-lit room, ideally with a plain background behind you. Good lighting is essential, so make sure the primary light source is in front of you, so it's illuminating your face.
Read the question carefully, so you understand what the employer is asking. Use the thinking time to make a note of the key points you should discuss in your response. Try to keep your answers concise and to the point.
Speak at a steady pace with a clear voice. Try to look at the camera and maintain eye contact.
