Free Psychometric tests for Career Planning and Job Applications

 

 

 

Psychometric tests can be really helpful in developing your employability for a range of different reasons. They can give feedback on interests, skills, personality and attributes which can help you decide which kinds of job roles and working environments mat best suit you, or which skills and experiences you need to further develop to be successful in your chosen career.

In addition, aptitude tests are used by a number of employers as part of their recruitment process, and it is a good idea to practice these in order to maximise your performance.

You can take as many of these as you wish, but some tests you will only be able to take once.

You will need to register for a number of tests, but they are all free of charge to all University of Worcester students.

These tests are offered by different providers so all have slightly different log in methods.
