Most of those applying for graduate roles are likely to be asked to take online psychometric tests at some point, sometimes immediately after registering an interest in a particular role. The good news is that it is possible to practise in advance and improve your skills.
To understand the variety of tests that you might encounter and how to approach them, start by reading our guidance on psychometric tests.
