CommBank Online Assessment Tests

If your Commbank application is taken forward, you will be invited to sit three Commonwealth Bank online assessment tests provided by CEB SHL:

Applicants for each strand will be asked to sit the same tests, but it may be worth considering that each of the Commonwealth Bank jobs could set different pass marks for the individual tests. You need to pass these tests in order to be put forward for the next stage, the telephone interview.

CommBank Numerical Reasoning Test

Numerical reasoning tests examine your ability to analyse and interpret numerical data. This data is provided through charts and graphs, and some questions may contain more that one piece of data. For each data set, there are a number of questions for you to answer using the relevant information. These tests are also time-limited, with approximately 18 questions to answer in anywhere for 17 to 25 minutes, depending on the difficulty of the test. You may use a calculator in CEB SHL numerical reasoning tests. This can cause its own challenges, so see JobTestPrep’s guide to using calculators in psychometric tests. Practising for the numerical reasoning test will help you sharpen your skills, and improve your score.

CommBank Verbal Reasoning Test

The verbal reasoning test looks at how well and how fast you can understand, process and analyse verbal information. In this test, you are given a short passage followed by written statements. You are asked to evaluate the truthfulness of each statement, in the answer format True/False/Can not say. The tests are time limited to 30 questions be answered in 17 to 19 minutes. There are two key elements to prepare for these tests: obtaining the skills needed to read and process information in order to verify the truthfulness of the statement, and doing this within a very tight time limit. Practising will help you improve your ability against both of these areas. JobTestPrep has created special practice packs based on CEB SHL tests, along with answers and guides on how to do the tests. Use the practice verbal reasoning test to get introduced into verbal reasoning tests.

CommBank Logical Reasoning Test

Logical reasoning tests evaluate your logical cognitive abilities. They use pictures to test your logic without the use of words or numbers. The test sets out a series of shapes and asks you to identify the pattern and pick out the next shape in the sequence, from a group of options. Practising with JobTestPrep’s practice packs for CEB SHL style logical reasoning tests will enable you to develop techniques for identifying the logical patterns, allowing you to be more confident on the day.

One of the best ways to bring examples into an answer is using the STAR method. Read more about it on JobTestPrep’s STAR method interview pages. In addition, don’t forget to reread your application form before the interview, and to think about why it is that you want to work for CommBank.
