This article provides a complete list of all types of online resources for mock aptitude tests and will help you improve your performance at taking these difficult tests.
You came to the right place.
Aptitude Tests (Short Intro)
Aptitude tests are most often used as an assessment tool, usually by an employer, as part of an interview process.
They can be difficult and are often timed.
Your score will be compared to the scores of other candidates, and usually only the top performing candidates will be invited to progress through an interview process.
This is why you must perform to the best of your ability when you take these tests.
Your score is very important.
Improving Your Performance At Aptitude Tests
There are many different types of aptitude test.
Some variations are:
- Numerical reasoning tests
- Verbal reasoning tests
- Abstract reasoning tests
The best way to practice is to take mock aptitude tests.
Doing so will help you become familiar with these tests and the types of questions you will be asked and help you improve how you answer these questions.
Online Mock Aptitude Tests (Full List)
There is a wide selection of mock aptitude tests available online.
We have compiled an extensive list below of all the different types of online resource.
All of these resources offer free practice and mock aptitude tests.
Employers Websites: Mock Tests
Many employers offer example mock tests to candidates, so that candidates can get an idea of what to expect when they take a real test.
If you will be taking an aptitude test for an employer and they offer a mock test to you, you must take it.
It will probably be very good preparation for your real test.
The good thing about mock tests on employers sites is that they are free to take.
The bad things about these tests, is that there are often only one or two mock tests to take, you might not always get answers, and the answers often do not have fully explained answers.
Getting full explanations to questions is an important part of your practice because they will help you learn how to improve your performance.
University Careers Services: Mock Tests
Almost all University Careers Service websites offer some form of mock aptitude test, but these are almost always only available to current students (student login required).
If you are a University student, contact your careers service to find out what options are available.
Here’s an example of a locked page on a University careers service website.
UCL: This university careers service offers free access to two paid aptitude test sites, but only for current students at UCL – https://www.ucl.ac.uk/careers/applying/psychometric-tests.
Aptitude Test Writing Companies Mock Tests
Aptitude tests are created by a range of different companies.
And employers pay these companies to use their tests to assess candidates.
Each one of these companies writes their tests in different ways, with a slightly different style of question.
It can be very useful to find out which company has produced the aptitude test you will be taking, before you take it, and practice mock tests by this company.
Some examples of test writing companies are: SHL, Kenexa and Revelian.
Many of these companies offer mock aptitude tests to candidates on their websites:
Cubiks: a full range of single practice tests for various tests written by Cubiks – https://practicetests.cubiks.com/.
SHL: a full range of single practice tests for various (but not all) tests written by SHL – https://www.shldirect.com/en/practice-tests/.
Saville Assessment: a full range of single practice tests for most tests written by Saville Assessment – https://www.savilleassessment.com/practice-tests/.
IBM Kenexa: a single practice test for the IBM Kenexa Prove It test – https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/ibm-kenexa-prove-it-skills-practice-tests.
Revellian: a range of single practice tests for various tests written by Revellian – https://www.revelian.com/jobseeker/example-assessments/.
Once again, these types of mock tests can be limited in number (most companies provide only one mock test for each test type) and limited in the way the answers to questions are explained.
They are useful practice, but not the best practice.
