With increasing use of psychometric tests within both placements and graduate recruitment, the Careers Service have invested in an online resource to help our students prepare for this part of the recruitment process.

Practice, practice, practice is the key. Research shows that this can increase performance by up to 10%.

Graduates First gives you access to a range of industry standard psychometric tests such as logical, numerical and verbal reasoning and other job assessment preparation tools.  For each test you receive a results report which shows how you did and explains the answers for each question. It also makes recommendations on how you can improve your score next time.

We have our own university portal for students to use for FREE so start practicing and be ready when you need it. https://app.graduatesfirst.com/BRIGHTON/Account/Login

 

In addition, did you know that the Pi Shop can also help with numerical reasoning tests? Perfect for students who may not have done a lot of Maths in a while or as part of their course, or those who feel they might struggle/have struggled with online numeracy tests.

The Pi Shop is open 12-2pm every week day and can be found in Cockcroft G5, where the Careers Services use to be before we moved to our posh new offices at the Mezzanine.

Check it out, lots of help with what can be a daunting part of the recruitment process. Doing some prep or getting additional help with online tests can really make a difference. Don’t forget you can also come and talk to one of our Careers specialists for more help with all things applications, online recruitment tests or assessment centres.

Good luck 🙂
