Psychometric testing for employment purposes is nowadays commonplace. But how do you ensure you perform at your best when undertaking employment or psychometric testing. As is the case with any new experience, preparation and practice is the key. What follows is a guide to assist you in understanding the testing process and its purpose.

  1. Relax, do not let panic or become worked up or you will find concentration difficult. Although the issues in these trials often are too complicated, you need to relax to make sure you provide the correct answers. The panic will make you suspicious of your ability and even an obvious answer may prove awkward for you.
  2. Do not skip the questions, answer the paper from beginning to end. If you really can not answer a question, leave it until the end and leave time to go back to it. It may be easier at this point when you have completed the trial.
  3. If you do not understand the process in step instruction, do not be afraid to ask the administrator. If you remain unsure you can not complete the test exactly a guarantee of failure.
  4. Do not allow yourself to be put off by others, they simply complete the same test, concentrate on yourself and your own goal. Pay attention to the administrator and concentrate.
  5. Arrive on time for the test, if you rush, it will take too long to install it and your nerves to calm down. You should be relaxed, free of distractions and prepare for what lies ahead.
