Psychometric Tests and Assessment CentresOur experience has led us to the conclusion that people can prepare themselves for each and every part of psychometric assessment process to some extent. This does not necessarily mean that the practice process involves a single pattern of question answering, but rather a guided overview of concepts, case examples, self reflection and of course, practical aptitude test exercises.
In effect, one of the main purposes of an assessment centre is to examine the applicant's behaviour in a stressful and tiring situation. Your behaviour during the course of the day is noted and is just as important as the test results, if not more.
Naturally, many applicants may experience feelings of frustration and anger when filling in the personality questionnaires or taking part in the group exercise. They feel exposed and that their privacy has been compromised. One of the most important rules to remember is to maintain a serious and concrete attitude throughout the course of the day.
Another important thing to consider is that the assessors at the assessment centre are interested in profiling a list of traits, some intended to be evaluated through more than one task. This means that even if you had problems in demonstrating a trait which you find as important, don't give up your enthusiasm or let this bring you down; there is a great chance you shall be given the opportunity to prove yourself again throughout the course of the day.

Anyone can pass a psychometric test
- Anyone can behave in a smart manner if they set their mind to it. This is true for everyday life as well as in assessment centres.

- The argument that our behaviour is considered genuine only if we are caught off guard, spontaneous and without preparation, is simply not true.
