What do Mechanical Comprehension Tests assess?
The test measures a candidate’s existing knowledge of mechanical concepts, so is different from some of our other tests as it relies on existing understanding. Candidates are presented with questions related to pulleys, levers, cogs, springs, circuit boards etc and required to determine what physical or mechanical principle applies in order to solve each question.
Typical roles that would use our Mechanical Comprehension test:
- - Technical and construction roles e.g. engineers, building trades etc
- - Emergency Services e.g. firefighters, police etc
- - Armed forces roles
The test consists of a total of 32 questions that must be completed in 20 minutes. There are 8 unique question sets (based on different mechanical concepts) and each set comprises of four individual questions.
