Graduates First consultants have years of experience working with large organisations globally and also with consultancy firms such as SHL, who devise the assessment solutions used by thousands of organisations today. As such we have developed numerous solutions to give you an accurate indicator or what to expect in your assessment and more importantly, how to pass these hurdles in order to land your desired job.
Psychometric testing is commonly responsible for rejecting over 50% of graduates at the online application stage of the recruitment process and this is often achieved by administering just two tests. E.g. Numerical reasoning and Verbal reasoning. By using a low pass criteria of 30% on each test, employers would simply reject the bottom 30% of the applicant group after each test. This means that for 300,000 applicants – 30% would be rejected after the first test alone leaving 210,000. A further 30% would be rejected after the second test leaving 147,000 candidates; half of the original group.
Although a low pass criterion of around 30th percentile is encouraged by psychologists and consultants, given the current competition, employers are expected to increase this 'cut-off' – thus leading to a greater percentage of candidates being rejected than previously.The need to practise Psychometric tests to ensure success has never been greater!
We offer 21 SHL style Verbal, Numerical and Logical reasoning tests with 'normed' scoring and the most detailed and instant feedback reports available today. We also provide all of the answers with full workings as downloadable pdf booklets.
Graduates First provides detailed feedback, giving you a personalised breakdown of your performance in a variety of ways that will help inform your efforts prior to a real test. Expert reporting options will, not only provide you with a ‘normed’ score – telling you how well you have done in comparison to other similar graduates – it will also give you a detailed breakdown of the questions that you struggled most with. For example, with the numerical tests, the intelligent reporting system will automatically determine those question types that were most problematic such as those that are “percentage” based or “chart” based and so on. All of this information combined serves as a valuable asset in helping you to succeed through the test stages where normally more than 50% of individuals are rejected from the recruitment process.

We have devised a personality questionnaire that is underpinned by the same Big-5 factor model of personality as those used by other tests publishers such as SHL. We provide free expert feedback reporting for these questionnaires, which will help you identify the type of job you should be applying for. These will also help you understand the kind of questions an interviewer may ask you subsequent to a personality assessment (e.g. SHL’s OPQ) you may complete as part of a job application.
