Are you worried about taking online employer ability tests? A high proportion of graduate recruiters use online “psychometric” ability or aptitude tests as an important part of the selection process. The Careers and Employability centre has invested in high quality licensed online packages to give Loughborough students and graduates FREE access to practice tests of the kind used by graduate recruiters. These practice tests will give you detailed feedback on your likely performance in employer tests and advice on how you can improve. Go to the following link to access these resources: practice tests
