Aon’s cut-e Assessment Tests
Aon’s cut-e offers several pre-employment assessment tests, each differing in structure, duration, time limit, difficulty, and what they assess.
Aon’s cut-e tests can be divided into four groups: Aptitude Tests, Special Knowledge & Skills Tests, Logic Tests, and Behavioral Assessments.
You might be asked to take only one test, but it’s more likely you will be asked to take several different ones, to assess various aspects of your capabilities and personality.
You may be given the possibility to take each test on its own, and not all at once, giving you some time between one test and another.
Aptitude tests, also known as ability tests, assess your professional knowledge and abilities in specific areas of expertise, such as numerical, verbal, and mechanical reasoning.
Cut-e offers various aptitude and skills tests–
Assess the following statement: Costs in year 5 were greater than the combined Costs of both year 4 and year 6.
According to the Revenues tab, costs in year 4 and year 6 were 20050 and 29870, respectively. The combined costs for year 4 and year 6 is 20050 + 29870 = 49920. The costs in year 5 was only 47607 which is less than 49920.
Therefore, the correct answer is False.
Tip💡: You can see that there are multiple tabs that you need to examine in order to find the answer to the question.
Not only that this is wherein lies the main difficulty of these questions, but submitting your answer while the wrong tab is on display will reduce points from your score, even if your answer is correct.
Complete the equation! Each digit may only be used once.
According to BODMAS (Brackets, Orders, Division and Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction), We should start with multiplication.
Then, we should think about the numbers that will best advance us toward the predefined result. For instance, 3*5 equals 15, which is close to 16. If we apply it to the equation:
x + 15 = 16
x = 1
Therefore, a possible solution is (1, 3, 5).
Other possible solutions: (4, 2, 6), (8, 2, 4), (6, 2, 5).
Tip💡: Though it may look like a simple mathematics exercise, you can't use the same number more than once, and you are not allowed to use a calculator. That means that you have to rely on only your mental calculation abilities, which can be quite challenging in a time limit of a mere 5 minutes.
Tip💡: As you can see, the difficulty of the questions increases as you progress, the equation has more variables and the calculations are more challenging, especially under a strict time limit.
Assess the following statement: Flying Colours’ Women’s Wear and Menswear product divisions focus solely on clothing for adults.
Although none of the words or phrases in the statement seem to suggest a specific tab, by reviewing the statement as a whole we can gather that it addresses products offered within a division. Therefore, the most relevant tab would be 'Products and Services'.
Since the statement discusses menswear and womenswear, we should review the 'Women's and Menswear' section of the tab. According to this section, "the Menswear and Womenswear Division's primary focus is adults, but increasingly, also teens".
Therefore, the statement is FASLE.
Tip💡: Like the scales numerical, you need to examine all the different tabs in order to find the information you are searching for, and you have to submit your answer while on the correct tab, otherwise the points will be reduced from your final score.
Tip💡: For each task, there is only one solution and only one informational topic required to evaluate the statement. Thus, you need to be sure of which tab you are looking for and pinpoint the accurate information.
Special knowledge and skill tests assess your abilities and competencies in various topics, as well as your capability to acquire new knowledge and adapt it quickly.
Here's a list of some of the cut-e skill tests –
Tip💡: The options you are given in this test are deliberately confusing. This is why you should pay extra attention to every option before choosing your answer. In addition, wrong answers will subtract points, so when given the option, it is better to choose the question mark than guess.
Tip💡: The most challenging part of this test is the ability to demonstrate complex technical knowledge that requires a deep understanding of machinery, measurements and mechanical processes in only 15 minutes.
Let's see how it looks:
Tip💡: Concentration is key. Pay close attention to each object as it is presented. Avoid distractions and ensure you are in a quiet environment.
Tip💡: As you can see, you are required to remain highly concentrated through the duration of the test, and not be distracted by the in-between tasks to be able to repeat the dot's sequence.
Tip💡: It's might seem like a simple task, but its difficulty lies in the dynamism of the instructions that change for each task. With only 2 minutes, your mind needs to stay sharp for every second.
Tip💡: The main difficulty of this test is not only to move the ball to the exit but also to succeed to do so with the least moves you can. Each move you make affects your score.
Logic tests assess your thinking patterns and logical conclusions competencies, which are essential in various jobs and positions.
Cut-e offers numerous logic tests –
Pattern: All tables with marking above (orange) have a 2 in the same place.
The correct markings (from left to right) are: bottom, top, top, bottom.
Tip💡: As you can see, the rule to which the grids are assigned can be quite tricky to identify because it can be reflected in every detail in the grid – the number of letters or digits, their arrangement within the grid, etc.
The correct answer is object #3.
The objects form a formal series. All objects contain a ‘V’ shape surrounded by 4 lines cutting across each other. In each object, one of the intersection points is missing. When moving from one object to the next one in the series, the missing intersection shifts one corner anti-clockwise.
The only object that does not fit this rule is object #3, as it has the top-right intersection missing instead of the bottom-right.
Note: The 90°-clockwise movement of the ‘V’ shape is kept throughout the entire series, and thus cannot be the key for solving the question; it only serves as a distraction.
Tip💡: There is only one correct answer, which means that the rule you choose has to be such that only one of the objects breaks it.
The correct answer is (C).
In this question, there are two rows of symbols and a missing operator.
The operator changes the order of the symbols that appear in the upper row to a new order in the lower row.
The digits of the operator represent the symbol according to its position in the upper row before the operator changed it.
To solve this question, you should look at the first symbol of the lower row. Search the position of that symbol in the upper row.
This position is the first digit of the operator.
Tip💡: As you progress, the difficulty of the tasks increases, and more operation options are added.
What symbol should appear in place of the question mark?
A. Circle
B. Square
C. Triangle
D. X
The shape missing from the third row is the X- therefore, the answer is X.
Tip💡: Each symbol can appear only once in a row or a column. Thus, you have to pay extra attention to the location of every symbol and the number of times it spears in the grid.
Choose the two grids that follow the rule.
A. 1,3
B. 2,3
C. 2,4
D. 3, 4
The rule is that each individual grid contains the same shape in the upper row as in the lower row (The upper grids have plus shapes, while the lower grids contain squares). In addition, the middle row is identical for both grids.
Grids 1 and 3 are the only grids that follow this rule. Therefore, The correct answer is 1,3.
Tip💡: The questions’ difficulty level increases throughout the test, and it will be more challenging to identify the governing rule, especially in a time limit of only 6 minutes.
Behavioural tests assess your demeanour, strengths, weaknesses, preferences, and work-related skills.
These are cut-e's most common personality and behavioural assessments –
Tip💡: Each statement assesses your personal capability to withstand unique pressure and your work-related behaviour. Therefore, you should be careful with your answer and take into consideration the position you are applying for and the culture of the organization.
Tip💡: You may find it difficult to rate the points according to what bests fit your personality and preferences and may have to compromise in your answer.
Tip💡: When replying to the messages, you need to pay attention not only to the person’s request, but also to their position and ranking within the company, and give your answer accordingly, both in phrasing and in prioritizing.
Tip💡: You may encounter pairs of statements that are both equally agreeable or disagreeable, thus you will need to consider the best answer that will reflect your personality.
