Free Online Psychometric Tests

This page endeavours to provide free psychometric tests on Psych Press' secured testing platform, Careering Ahead. This serves two purposes; first it allows those interested to gain an understanding of what may be required in a psychometric assessment; and secondly, provides some idea of your performance against an available comparison group.

As these assessments will provide you some real-life experience in an online test environment, a number of conditions need to be met while completing your assessment/s in order to obtain accurate and meaningful results.

Please ensure all of the following conditions are met.

  • The room is sufficiently quiet so that you can concentrate.
  • You will have uninterrupted time to devote to completing the assessment/s.
  • You will have uninterrupted and continued access to the Internet for the period required.

Before starting the assessment/s, you will be asked to provide some basic details about yourself (such as age, educational achievement, etc) so that we can provide a result which is benchmarked against a comparison of your choice, if this is available.

Although you can never be 100% about what tests you may be given. it is highly likely that you will be given a combination of ability tests complimented by at least one or two personality tests.

In terms of ability tests (as outlined in "What is Psychometric Testing?") the best technique is to practice answering questions before starting the assessment process. Taking sample tests such as those offered by our website is a great way of gaining experience about what may be expected on the day. Ability/cognitive tests usually have a time limit and are often too difficult for most people to finish. Before each test you will commonly be given a series of examples. Take these slowly and learn from your mistakes.

Personality tests are much harder to prepare for as they commonly assess relatively stable behavioural tendencies. The best technique is to be completely honest. Don't over deliberate about any one particular question. With that said, we suggest that your first response is your best response.

Lastly, preparing for psychometric testing is a combination of a good nights sleep and eating well. A little bit of adrenalin is OK but don't become overstressed. If you feel overwhelmed, breath slowly and most importantly, maintain a positive attitude throughout the process. It's not the end of the world if you're finding a test difficult. Remember it is only one section of the entire assessment process and a decision is never made on solely one assessment criteria.
