Unlock your natural potential with psychometric tests!
What are psychometric tests?
Developed by expert psychologists, psychometric tests are multiple-choice questionnaires designed to analyse different aspects of your mind. They create an accurate picture of your natural aptitude which is matched against different jobs, activities and careers to determine the best fit for your personality profile. More and more students are using the power of psychometric testing to unlock their natural potential and guide their careers.
Why are they important?
Students sometimes make poor choices when it comes to higher education and career development. Such students are either forced to drop out and switch to another degree, or they stay on a career path which leaves them unhappy and frustrated. In either case they not only waste precious time and money but also jeopardise their futures. Psychometric tests offer the opportunity to look inside your mind and understand your true motivations and capabilities: what are you naturally good at and what do you really like to do ?
What will they tell me about myself?
A lot more than you can imagine! Psychometric tests analyse three things: your interests, your personality, and your abilities. They unlock your natural potential by matching strengths in these three areas to specific jobs, careers and higher education. For example, are you naturally inclined towards a career which requires creativity, or are you better suited to a career in business management? Are you more likely to be happy and successful as an engineer or as a teacher? Psychometric tests highlight which values are important to you, which things motivate you, and which skills come naturally to you.
Do I need to study for them?
No, thatís the fun thing about psychometric tests! You just answer a series of multiple-choice questions as honestly as you can. Most psychometric tests can be completed in less than 1 hour! The questions don't test general knowledge or language proficiency. they just analyse you as a person and identify your strengths. Remember, you can't fail a psychometric test. Just be yourself, thatís all it takes!
