Established in 1984, Psytech solutions started producing high quality assessment software. They have since expanded and now have a complete range of Psytech tests including a general reasoning test battery, graduate reasoning tests, a critical reasoning test battery, a multidimensional aptitude battery, and many more besides.

We will go through the tests below:


The Psytech Graduate Reasoning Test or GRT1 as it is known, is a combination of three different tests and is used in assessing high level staff (e.g. managerial positions, system analysts, accountants, SMP’s, technical and scientific posts etc). The tests are designed to evaluate high level reasoning skills thus gauging the mental ability of each candidate. The three tests are:

Verbal reasoning (VR1) – This test is used to evaluate high level verbal abilities and thus measures vocabulary, verbal fluency and the candidate’s proficiency using the English language. For practice tests click here.

Numerical reasoning (NR1) – In this test the candidate will have to prove their numerical ability by using different concepts and use logical reasoning to recognize different mathematical relationships. For practice tests, follow this link.

Abstract reasoning (AR1) – Commonly known as the purest form of mental ability, in the AR1 the candidate will be evaluated of the capacity to understand abstract logical problems. These tests are used to measure process mapping, creativity and abstract thinking levels. For practice click here.


Similar in a sense to GRT1, the General Reasoning Test, GRT2, also comprises a set of three different tests. However, these are of a more basic nature and are more suited to non-graduate positions such as accounts, clerks, junior sales, and administrative positions. They evaluate the candidate’s logical reasoning ability, vocabulary skills, problem solving abilities and how quickly they can grasp abstract concepts. The tests in this series are:

Verbal reasoning (VR2) – This test is used to evaluate basic vocabulary as well as the capacity to reason using words. For more information and practice click here.

Numerical reasoning (VR1) – In this test the candidate will be presented with different pieces of numerical data and show the ability to use the different figures in a logical and efficient way. For practice click here.

Abstract reasoning (AR2) – These tests are very similar to the AR1 test but on an easier level. The candidate will be presented with various figures and shapes and has to distinguish between them working out a pattern. For practice click here.


This test is in fact an adaptive version of the abovementioned GRT 1 and GRT2. Candidates who took it said it includes the exact same style of questions seen on the more basic editions of it. Our GRT style practice pack is a useful preparation tool for it.


The Abstract Reasoning Test, ART is used in the managerial and graduate roles and is used to evaluate a candidate's “fluid intelligence”. This test assesses the ability to react to foreign situations and deal with them in a strategic manner. For more information and practice click here.


The Clerical Test Battery is a series of four tests and is used in the assessment process in the hiring of clerical and administrative personnel. The tests are:

Verbal reasoning (VR2) – This is the same test mentioned above in the GRT2 section.

Numerical ability (NA2) – In this test the candidate will have to calculate similar tasks that they will be expected to do in the office. For example working out the unit pricing of goods. 

Clerical checking (CC2) – This is a speed checking test where the candidate’s must compare numerical information to the source file and discern if the two pieces of data are congruent.

Spelling (SP2) – This is a simple spelling test of the candidate’s ability to spell commonly used words in the workplace. For practice click here.


The Technical Test Battery, the TTB2 is a 45 minute series of three tests aimed at applicants and trainees of a craft or technician level. These tests closely resemble the work that the candidate would expect to encounter at the workplace. The tests are:

Mechanical reasoning (MRT2) – This test is used by the employer to understand the candidate’s ability to comprehend different mechanical and physical principles in action.

Spatial reasoning (SRT2) – The candidate will be presented will two-dimensional pictures which have to be envisaged in 3D. There will be a variety of different shapes and patterns to identify. Practice these tests here.

Visual acuity (VAC2) – The candidate has to follow a specific route and tests the candidate’s ability to check and repair circuitry and components.


The Critical Reasoning Test Battery (CRTB2) is a set of two tests designed for a high level position such as a manager or a graduate. It is used to assess the critical reasoning skills needed in roles that require rational and consistent decisions. The two tests are:

Verbal critical reasoning (VCR2) – The candidate will be provided with a paragraph of complex information with a number of key facts cleverly designed to be slightly hidden in the text. These facts will need to be extrapolated from the text by means of different, often cryptic, questions. For more information and practice, click here.

Numerical critical reasoning (NCR2) – There will be a wide range of numerical data presented to the candidate in the form of tables, graphs, and percentages which require evaluation and calculation to answer the questions posed. For more information and practice click here.


The Contact Centre Scenario Inventory (CCSI) is used to assess candidates applying for jobs in the contact centre sector. It takes the form of an SJT, a Situational Judgement Test, which is a well-known assessment, used a many different situations. The candidate is presented a state of affairs and has to choose a response most suited to them. Here at JobTestPrep we have a full guide as well as a number of high quality SJT’s showing how to manage these assessments in the best possible way. See our great package here.

"Luckily, I passed them and thus I will go to the next stage of the interview. Those tests you gave me were very similar to the ones I taken, just the verbal part was a bit tougher and slightly different."
