    On top of this do you know what you need to know? Do you know what you don't know? It's difficult to give advice on an aptitude test because that's a very generic term and we have no information to work with.

    Can you find out what you struggled with? Or do you know what you couldn't answer?

    I have but the practice for the aptitude test only had 4 questions in , which they all came up, the actual test had 50 questions, not enough revision material for that part i guess but I will try.

    A couple of questions I couldn't answer I found what they are, other we're just about common IT acronyms, which I only knew a couple of. I can just practice more patterns, and a couple were questions were about programming, which I had no clue about. , I will just go on do some research, just really scared now.

    Not to sound like an arse but if they're common IT acronyms and you don't know them then have you asked if you're really cut out for whatever IT thing you've applied to? If it's degree level then there's a baseline expectation that you have some basic knowledge of the IT area. And at A Level and lower they won't be expecting you to have programming knowledge.

    Aptitude tests like this are to guage your ability to take a job or course. If you failed it that suggests you aren't ready for the course, or at least don't have the necessary working knowledge.
