Test Format & Content

The Ramsay Mechanical Test, made by Ramsay Corporation, consists of 36 multiple-choice items with a 20-minute time limit. The categories that are tested include the following:

  • Household Objects (i.e. watering can)
  • Hand & Power Tools
  • Work – Production & Maintenance
  • School – Science & Physics (basic, high school level concepts)

The Ramsay Corporation Mechanical Aptitude Test assesses one's ability to learn the activities of production and maintenance jobs. Instead of evaluating knowledge and skill level, the Ramsay test measures the likelihood of an individual to succeed in a maintenance trainee or apprenticeship programme. The Ramsay Mechanical Test is used to aid in employee selection for positions where practical mechanical skill and knowledge are required.
