    Did your job require an engineering degree though? If so, there would be little reasoning to test mathematical skills.

    However if other applicants came from other degree disciplines they need to have a consistent and fair process - meaning you would take the test as well as someone who had no mathematical content to their degree/studies at all.

    It did not require an engineering degree specifically, but all my closest colleagues all have heavy hitting MEng/Msc/Phd degrees in 'hard' science subjects.

    Then it sounds like your employer made the right decision not using numerical tests as it would have been a complete waste of resource.

    I struggled a lot as well when I was preparing for mine, but I found Graduates First very helpful. You can do their tests for free on the website.
