As well as this, you will be asked to fill in some questions relating to your motivation to join the company. When answering these questions, it is important to put yourself in the best possible light. In order to do this, you should include the key values that Rolls-Royce wants you to possess. They are:

  • Innovation

By incorporating these ideals into your answers and showing how you have demonstrated them before you stand yourself in good stead to get through to the next stage of the application process.

If you are successful in this stage of the recruitment process you will be invited to take part in the next stage of the process: The Rolls-Royce online tests.

The Rolls-Royce Aptitude Tests

Once you have submitted your application form, you are automatically sent a link to a set of online psychometric tests. Rolls-Royce have recently started to use cut-e tests in their online testing, and these tests are described below. However, some applicants may be invited to sit a set of CEB’s SHL tests. If that is you, see our Rolls-Royce SHL tests page.

Once you have received the link, you have 10 days to complete all your tests. You can choose the order in which you sit the tests, and you do not need to take them all in one go. The tests are crucial to your application, as if you don’t complete them, your application will not be considered for the next stage of the process. You can only take the Rolls-Royce tests once a year, which means that if you fail them you will not be able to apply to Rolls-Royce again for a full year.

Cut-e tests are negatively marked meaning that points are awarded to every right answer, and deducted for every wrong answer. These two scores are added together to create your final test score. This system of marking increases the importance of practice to ensure that you get your answers right.

The are five Rolls-Royce psychometric tests for all candidates. Higher Apprentices, Graduates and Interns will take the same set of tests, whilst Apprentices will have a slightly different set. All candidates receive the situational judgement questionnaire and the measurement of competencies test. All tests are outlined below.
