What is Revelian?  

Revelian (formally Onetest) is a popular Australian psychometric assessment company, providing services to both local and global enterprises. Revelian assessments are created and reviewed by professional psychologists.

Revelian's tests provide insightful and measurable data to customers from a broad range of industry sectors.  Thousands of candidates worldwide come across Revelian's ability tests during their job selection processes.  

What Are Revelian Tests?

Revelian aptitude tests are designed to assess a wide-range of cognitive abilities, skills and personality traits. They measure one’s cognitive ability, personality, values, work preferences, emotional intelligence, cultural fit and integrity. 

Revelian assessments help companies determine who to hire, who to promote, how to manage employees, how to work as a team and which skills to develop.  

Cognitive Ability Test

The Revelian Cognitive Ability Test (RCAT, formerly known as the OCAT) is a 51-question, 20-minute test that combines all the popular cognitive evaluation questions. It combines various types of logic questions, such as math word problems, verbal syllogisms, spatial reasoning questions, abstract reasoning questions, and more. For more information, see our dedicated Revelian Cognitive Ability Test page.

This test is used for an array of candidates, positions, and job profiles, as this test is typically the first step before an interview or assessment centre.

Revelian Numerical Reasoning Test

Similar to the numerical section of the cognitive ability test, this test assesses a candidate's ability to grasp numerical concepts; solve problems using numerical information; and make sound, logical decisions involving numbers. There are 25 questions on this 12-minute test, so candidates must work quickly to ensure they finish on time. Learn more about numerical tests.

Revelian Verbal Reasoning Test

This test is comprised of 35 questions that must be completed in just 10 minutes. It aims to assess a candidate's ability to quickly grasp written concepts; use verbal information to effectively solve problems; and make sound, logical decisions involving words and verbal information.

Revelian Abstract Reasoning Test

This test contains 32 questions that must also be answered in just 10 minutes. As they are not based on language, abstract reasoning tests are considered the fairest type of psychometric testing available. Candidates are assessed on their ability to quickly grasp new, ambiguous, and complex concepts; effectively solve problems using nonverbal information; and make sound, logical decisions involving abstract information.

Work Preferences Profile

This test contains 84 questions and should only take you 15 minutes to complete. However, it is purposely not timed so you can answer every single question. This is a personality test that aims to help predict job satisfaction and productivity as well as to decrease employee turnover. It is based on several areas:

  • Quantitative –working with numbers
  • Investigative – reasoning and research
  • Clerical – administrative tasks
  • Manual – working with your hands
  • Interpersonal – interaction with other people
  • Creative – showing your innovation
  • Selling – promotional areas
  • Mobile – work performed outdoors

The questions on this test do not assess your actual ability in the above areas, but rather your willingness and desire to work in them.

16 Personality Factor Questionnaire (16PF®)

This test contains 170 questions evaluating the following skills: relating to others, influence and collaboration, thinking style, structure and flexibility, and management of pressure. This personality test normally takes about 30 minutes to complete. It is used to predict work behaviour, communication skills, and performance levels. Many different companies utilise this test as it is considered a good predictor of success. 

Work Safety Assessment

This test contains 77 questions that assess your attitude towards safety control, risk aversion, stress management, violence, and drug aversion. On the test, you are presented with a series of statements relating to the above subjects. You must decide whether you agree or disagree with these statements. This test provides employers with a deeper understanding of candidates' ability to work safely both personally and with regard to future colleagues.

Behavioural Profile

This 24-question test is generally used as a later step in the recruitment process. After the assessment that determines if a candidate possesses the requisite skills, the company now wants to see if he or she is a good fit. This test is based on four different behavioural styles:

  • Compliance – approach to rules
  • Dominance – approach to problems and challenges
  • Influencing – approach to social situations
  • Steadiness – approach to pace of the environment

Tips for Revelian Test Preparation

When preparing for the Revelian tests, test-takers should make sure to practise frequently with Revelian-style tests. This will help them become more familiarised with the test questions and perform under pressure. If English is not one’s first language, we highly recommend that they invest in enriching their vocabulary and acquaint themselves with the various test terms.  

Additionally, knowing one’s strengths and weaknesses will help them be aware of the areas they need improvement in. Getting a good night’s sleep the night before and being prepared with the necessary tools for the day of the test will help test-takers feel fully prepared.  

Are Revelian Tests Hard? 

Each Revelian aptitude test may differ in the level of difficulty, however, applicants can prepare ahead of time so that they will feel more confident and readier when taking the real test. To help make the test-taking process easier, applicants should read the exam instructions carefully and stay focused. 

Revelian tests are timed and may contain a large number of questions, so the key is to stay calm and answer as many questions correctly as possible. Taking the Revelian personality test is quite easy, the trick is to just be yourself and believe in your positive attributes.  

How to Pass Revelian Tests 

Passing the Revelian tests requires practise, skill and deliberation. Prior to answering the test’s questions, make sure to read the directions carefully so that you are sure of what you need to do. Each test is time-limited and will often leave you with only a minute to complete one question.

The key to answering each question correctly is to stay focused and practise taking sample tests beforehand. Practising with Revelian-style exams helps familiarise you with the test’s format and structure. Since only 2% of test-takers can answer all the test questions, a good strategy is to skip the questions you don’t know the answer to and them come back to it later if you have time.
