There are 10 passages and 30 arguments in the test, each of them the candidate needs to determine if they are True, False, or that he Cannot Say. For the 30 questions, the candidate has 19 minutes. Practicing this test will improve the candidate reading abilities and his deduction skills.

BAE Sytems CEB SHL-Style Inductive Reasoning Logical

This is the most common type of logical reasoning test SHL offers, often delivered to candidates applying for graduate, managerial, and executive roles. On this test, you are presented with a series of five objects. Your task is to select the object that would come next in the series from the five available options (just like in the first example above). The test consists of 24 questions to be solved in 25 minutes. It is administered online at the beginning of the recruitment process, along with other CEB SHL-style Verify tests.

BAE Systems Situational Judgement Test

Situational judgement tests (SJTs) are a popular psychological tool used by assessment companies, employers, and organizations to evaluate applicants' behavioral and cognitive abilities when introduced with hypothetical, daily work-related situations. SJTs do not consist of one uniform format and do not focus on strict criteria, but rather they serve as a tailored evaluation tool for a variety of positions and business sectors. Therefore, different companies and diverse positions within an organization require different questions and formats.

BAE Hiring Process

BAE hiring process may include several steps as described below. Please note that applicants to the Sigma Leadership Programme have a slightly different recruitment process which also includes a telephone interview and atwo-day>assessment center

BAE Application Form

The first step towards becoming a BAE graduate employee is to complete an online BAE application form, which will be looked at on a first-come, first-served basis. This means that once enough successful applications have been received and processed, the positions will have been filled even if this is before the application deadline. Therefore, it is strongly advised that you apply as soon as possible for a position once it has been advertised.

Your BAE application form should contain enough details about your degree (including the modules you have studied), work experience, and personal achievements (with examples and details) to show the application assessors that you have the necessary and appropriate background for the role that you have applied for. Keep the word limit in mind and be sure to incorporate the two key aspects – continuously improving and working together. 

If you are successfully shortlisted, you will then need to complete an online psychometric test to ensure you have the qualities you will need within your ultimate role in the company.


BAE Assessment Centre

The final aspect of the BAE Systems recruitment process is the assessment centre. For Sigma Leadership Programme applicants, this is a two-day event while for applicants for all other programmes this is a one-day event which will consist of listening to a presentation and then interacting in in-tray exercise, group exercises, and an interview.

BAE Systems Group Exercise

Working within BAE will inevitably involve working in collaboration with others. It is, therefore, an important part of the BAE aptitude test that you pass the group exercise, which usually involves problem-solving, discussions and games. The object of the exercise is not necessary to achieve a particular outcome - rather, it is to test how well you work with a group and what you contribute. You need to be able to listen to others but also hold your own view and give that opinion in an effective and persuasive manner. Try our group exercise practise pack to sharpen your skills for this challenge.

BAE Systems Interview

For most candidates, the interview is the last stop of the hiring process and it is also the only chance you get to come face-to-face with a BAE recruiter. Use this opportunity to your advantage.

The range of questions asked at this stage revolve around your competencies and past experiences. Think of some good examples of when you have shown yourself to be an exemplary employee and/or leader. Explore the position you are applying to and make sure to highlight your skills that make you a great match for the job. If you're still feeling nervous, our interview preparation will help prepare you for various questions, in addition, to provide you with a chance to assess your interview skills.
