Part of Psychometric Tests For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

Preparation is often key to putting in your best performance on test day. Here are a few key things to remember before you take your psychometric test:

  • Get chores out of the way so that you’re not feeling rushed on the day.

  • Make sure that you know where the test session is to be held and plan your travel arrangements well in advance.

  • Ask for any practice test examples that may be available.

  • Let the organisation know about any special requirements you may have (for example, disabilities or access requirements).

  • Get everything you need for the test ready the night before, and go to bed at a reasonable time.

  • Make sure that you have at least two pens and pencils.

  • Prepare any food or drinks you need to take with you.

  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine drinks before you go to bed the night before, and do something to help you relax. Video games and action films are best avoided!

  • Make sure that you have some cash and the organisation’s telephone number handy.

  • Make sure that you eat as normal!
