The Aptitude Test exercises consist mostly of general knowledge, math and logic, memory, concentration, retentiveness, language and personality along with job-specific questions and exercises depending on the specialty.
What is a Aptitude Test?
An Aptitude Test examines the personality, intelligence and concentration of candidates in order to test if they are suitable for a specific course of studies or work. In contrast to an aptitude test is a Career-Test not as in depth. The objective is not to test candidates for a job posting but for the general aptitude for a branch of trade or industry sector. The Career-Test on the other hand only tests for the qualification for a job posting. Some businesses let their job candidates take an Aptitude Test and in the second round after that a Career-Test again, but most rely on only one of the two test methods.
What are the assignments?
The Aptitude Test doesn’t test only general knowledge. The candidate has to primarily demonstrate his skills and qualifications that the chosen occupation depends on to be successful. The Aptitude Test uses for the most part psychologically test procedures. There are even psychologists and whole institutions that specialise on aptitude diagnostics.
