About Bank of New Zealand PrepPacks™

During the recruitment process, you'll be asked to take a number of different Bank of New Zealand tests. You are asked to complete these tests online. These tests are in general provided by Matrigma. To successfully move on to the next stage of the hiring process, utilise JobTestPrep's comprehensive preparation packages to give yourself the best chance of success.


Bank of New Zealand Matrigma Test

Matrigma is cognitive ability test that assesses examinees' ability to solve problems and draw conclusions. The test is delivered online and consists of approximately 35 items that must be completed within a 40-minute time limit. Passing the Matrigma test successfully shows your future employer that you possess critical reasoning skills, clear thinking, and advanced learning skills. These abilities are crucial for almost any position.


Bank of New Zealand Numerical Reasoning Test

Numerical reasoning tests are number-based assessments. They range from basic mathematics or arithmetic tests to high-level numerical critical reasoning assessments. The variety of test types corresponds to the numerous job levels these assessments are used for, including high ranking senior management positions, graduate or managerial jobs, and administrative and sales roles. Numerical tests are the most common type of aptitude test you can face during the recruitment process.


Bank of New Zealand Verbal Reasoning Test

Verbal ability—namely, comprehension, vocabulary, and interpretation—can be improved through practice. Simply taking practice tests and gaining exposure to the types of questions you will experience on the real test can relax you, improve your confidence, and increase your speed and accuracy. The key elements to keep in mind when preparing for a verbal reasoning test are as follows:

  • Accuracy in answering questions
  • The speed at which you answer (most verbal reasoning tests are time limited)
  • Understanding the passage and how to answer the questions

Bank of New Zealand Situational Judgement Test

Situational judgement tests (SJTs) are a popular psychological tool used by assessment companies, employers, and organisations to evaluate applicants' behavioural 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 organisation require different questions and formats.


Bank of New Zealand Logical/ Inductive Reasoning Test

Logical reasoning also called Verbal, Inductive, or Deductive Reasoning tests, assesses the candidates' ability to read and understand complicated texts and, most importantly, to utilize critical thinking skills to draw conclusions and recognize important facts.


Bank of New Zealand Personality Test

Being consistent is very important when taking a personality assessment test. On personality tests, you may be asked similar questions that are worded differently. If you answer these similar questions differently, it will be reflected in your results. For instance, it could appear to assessors as if you did not answer both questions completely honestly, which may result in you not getting the job. However, being consistent is not something you need to focus on, as it is not measured. It is a problem only if you significantly contradict yourself; for example, answering "agree" to "I'm never late" and "I have a tendency to be late to some meeting." At times during the test, you may encounter similar statements but not agree or disagree with all of them; in this case, it is fine to answer differently. For example, answering "agree" to both "I prefer working with people rather than working alone" and "Sometimes, I need some alone time."
