What Are Saville Tests?

Saville Consulting is a leading provider of candidate assessment tools. The tests Saville Consulting develops are used by leading employers, including Ernst and Young, Nestle, Land Rover, and Jaguar. Saville's test series vary according to job levels and industries. Just click on the test category that suits your professional level to learn more about the specific tests you may encounter during your assessment process.

  • Executive aptitudes – targeting managers, directors, and professionals
  • Analysis aptitudes - targeting managers, directors, and professionals
  • Comprehension aptitudes – targeting service apprentices, operational, commercial, customer & administrative staff.
  • Work aptitudes – targeting graduates, trainees, technicians, team leaders, and supervisors.

While most of the aptitude tests Saville develops are similar to those developed by SHL and other assessment companies, there are some differences. These differences are apparent in either the content (different question types) or the format (time frames, number of questions) of the tests. Taking into account these differences, JobTestPrep has tailored its practice packs to simulate the exact tests Saville uses.

A Complete Breakdown of Saville Tests

Saville has two main test formats:

  1. Single Aptitude Tests – This is a long version of Saville's tests (more than 30 minutes), delivered either online or in hard copy.
  2. Swift Aptitude Tests – This is a short, popular version of Saville's tests (less than 30 minutes), designed exclusively for use in an online, unsupervised format.

Both the Swift and Single Aptitude Tests cover the same array of aptitudes and topics, as well as share questions of varying difficulty levels. The Swift Aptitude Test is merely a quick preliminary selection tool, while the Single Aptitude Tests longer and usually used at assessment centres.

Saville tests are tailored per ability and position. Both the Swift Aptitude Test and the Single Aptitude Test are divided into different types according to target candidates and abilities. Below is an overview of Saville Swift Tests as offered to employers:

The Most Popular Aptitude Tests – Numerical & Verbal Analysis

Naturally, the two most popular tests candidates sit as part of their selection processes are verbal and numerical aptitudes. Saville might give these tests different names, such as analysis or comprehension, but they are still derivatives of classic verbal and numerical reasoning tests, differing only in terms of difficulty level.
