About

We offer a practice bundle which includes preparation for both the BARB test and the Technical Selection Test. You will receive complete practice tests for each test, with detailed explanations and score reports. The bundle also includes additional practice material to help you brush up your skills before the test.


 

BARB test

The BARB consists of 5 tests taken on a touchscreen computer, and should take about 30 minutes:

  • Reasoning Test - You are presented with two statements about a relationship between two individuals. Use your logical abilities to make a deduction based on that statement.
  • Letter Checking - Use your perceptual speed to identify pairs that contain the same letter within four pairs of upper and lowercase letters.
  • Number Distance - Identify the lower and higher number in a combination of three numbers. Then, choose the one that is furthest away from the third, middle number.
  • Odd One Out - Decide which word is the odd one out between three words.
  • Symbol Rotation - Use your ability to mentally rotate objects in order to determine whether the two presented shapes are identical or not.


Technical Selection Test

If you are eligible for consideration for a technical role, you will also take the Technical Selection Test. This tests consists of 55 questions (from 28 different question types). The questions are mathematical in nature, and resemble the questions found in a GSCE paper. They range from basic calculations with decimals to information deduced from graphs. Examples can be found on our free TST sample questions page . A pencil, some paper, and a basic calculator are provided.

You will have 45 minutes to complete the test - meaning you have less than one minute to answer each question correctly. Practise now with JobTestPrep to exercise TST-style tests, and find which solving strategies are most suitable for you.
