Candidate Preparation

To help you prepare for your upcoming assessments, we have provided some guides and online practice tests, which you can access below.

Personality & Behavioural Questionnaires

Wave Styles assessments are built around one integrated model based on a rich understanding of personal motives, talents, competency potential and preferred culture.

There are two main Wave personality questionnaires, Professional Styles and Focus Styles. Wave Strengths are also available, providing a powerful suite of behavioural screening questionnaires offering a cost-effective approach to volume recruitment.

Aptitude Tests

Employers often use aptitude tests as part of their assessment procedures for the selection and development of staff. Research has shown that they are powerful predictors of performance at work.

Online Practice Tests

Complete realistic timed practice questions online by selecting the appropriate link below (links will open in a new tab).

While you are in a practice test you can complete the questions as many times as you like. To re-access a practice test after you have opted to Finish, simply select the required link again.

You will be given onscreen feedback for each question that you answer. The purpose of the practice tests is to familiarise you with the format of the actual test and working to strict time limits.

The difficulty of the example questions does not necessarily represent the difficulty level of the test itself.

Please note: Aptitude assessments are not accessible on mobile phones (with the exception of Swift Comprehension Verbal & Numerical Aptitude, Swift Global Aptitude and the Workplace English Proficiency Tests).

Workplace English Test

Employers often use this test to measure an individual’s understanding and use of English in the workplace.
