Preparing for numeracy tests
When you apply for a placement or a graduate position you may be required to complete a range of psychometric tests. You can find more information about the range of tests from Careers.
Numeracy tests are one type of psychometric test. You can prepare for these tests in a number of ways.
Use our online resources
In the Numeracy for Careers section of the online MASH resources you can access a collection of online resources for graduate numeracy testing, including:
- resources for particular numeracy topics
- practice tests
Ask for help in a MASH drop-in
The Mathematics Resources Centre has a daily drop-in open to all members of the University. We offer a range of mathematical and statistical support including help with numeracy tests in these drop-ins. For instance, you can ask about:
- a specific numeracy topic
- specific practice questions from the online resources or elsewhere
- finding additional resources
- planning how to improve your numeracy
There is a drop-in every day during term time. Please see our drop-in timetable to find a day and time which suits you.
