Matrigma-Style Tests

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.


MTR Personality Tests

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."


MTR Situational Judgement Tests

When answering a question on an SJT, try to imagine yourself at work, and answer the questions accordingly. This is quite important since we all act and react differently inside and out of the workplace. When taking a situational judgment test, you want to answer as your 'work self'—the logical, reasonable, mature version of yourself.


MTR Numerical Tests

Depending on the job and profession you are seeking, you may encounter a pre-hire maths test. These are also known as numerical reasoning tests, quantitative reasoning tests, or simply a numerical test. This is the most common type of aptitude test applicants can face. Test takers are assessed on their ability to understand and make decisions based on numerical data. The exam may be administered as part of an online job application, at the job site, or during an interview.


MTR Verbal Reasoning Tests

Verbal reasoning psychometric tests are among the most common tests applicants face when applying for a new job. Verbal reasoning is the name given to a range of tests that use written texts to measure your ability to understand, analyse, and interpret information.


MTR Abstract Reasoning Tests

The Figural Series is a visual test with no words, presenting a series of shapes with patterns you must solve using abstract thinking skills. You are presented with a series of figures, and you must find the correct answer that completes the series. The frames advance from left to right in a certain way. You must try to predict the next shape in the sequence from the options listed.


MTR Microsoft Office Tests

The Microsoft Office assessment is usually comprised of several different tests, but it most commonly involves a Microsoft Excel test accompanied by a Microsoft Word test. Sometimes you will encounter a typing test as well. These tests often come in two different difficulty levels — basic and intermediate-advanced. Each test, regardless of its difficulty level, contains topics involving both fundamental skills as well as more sophisticated ones. What sets these tests apart is the number of questions relating to each level of Microsoft Office skills.

Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions

What Skills Do MTR Verbal Tests Measure?

Verbal reasoning tests examine you on a range of English language skills. These skills can be broken down into the following groups: Vocabulary, Grammar, Comprehension, and Critical Reasoning. Vocabulary assessments test your understanding of the words that are used in your line of work. This is measured through various assessments, such as mixed sentences tests, complete the sentence tests, spelling tests, and more. Grammar tests examine your understanding of English grammar and your ability to recognise good or bad grammar. Grammar is measured through questions that ask you to complete a sentence or identify the correct next sentence in a paragraph.

Comprehension tests are designed to measure your ability to understand written information, analyse it, and interpret what you have read to answer questions. Critical Reasoning tests measure how you analyse the information in front of you. In the context of verbal reasoning tests, critical reasoning tests require that you identify whether a statement is true or false based on the information provided, or whether the information provided is not sufficient enough to come to a conclusion.

Should I Choose "Strongly Agree/Disagree" or "Agree/Disagree in the MTR Personality Tests?"

There are different kinds of questions found on personality assessment tests. When given a statement with extreme statements such as "always" and "never," you should answer them with less extreme answers such as "agree" and "not strongly agree." However, there are times during a personality test in which you should choose "strongly agree" or "strongly disagree." You should choose "strongly agree" when the following types of questions are asked:

    • Most people are honest by nature.
    • Most people can be trusted.
    • Very few people steal at work.
    • I cannot remember the last time I lost my temper at work.
    • I rarely worry about how well I'm doing at my job.

You should choose strongly disagree when asked the following types of questions:

  • It is human nature to steal from others.
  • Most people cannot be trusted.
  • Sometimes my co-workers annoy me.
  • I sometimes worry about losing my job because of office politics.
  • Sometimes I don't feel able to handle all my work responsibilities.

What is the MTR's Face to Face Interview?

There are several different types of questions you may face during your interviews.

What will I Face in MTR Assessment Centre?
