The purpose of Psychometric Tests is to provide an effective way of obtaining objective, comprehensive, and relevant information about a person’s ability to perform in a wide variety of areas. Getting the most out of Psychometric Testing involves a combination of factors such as preparation, fully understanding the process, answering honestly and receiving sound feedback. COREcruitment guide you through the whole process.
Research suggests that the amount of improvement you can expect will depend on educational background, personal interests and largely on the quality of the practice material.
Secondly, you should practice the material in the most realistic way possible. Find somewhere where you will not be disturbed and go through each paper without interruption and try to stick to the time limit. Do not have anything with you that are not allowed on the day of the test and switch off your mobile phone.
Our psychometric testing can be customised in ways that are directly relevant to the job. For example, you may only have to take a numerical reasoning test if the job you're applying for requires good numerical skills.

You can influence your scores in these tests significantly by understanding the question types and practicing them.
