Did you pass gcse with a C or a 4? If so you should be OK
I haven't seen the latest tests and some could be job role specific but mostly they look at
arithmetic skills (add, subtract, multiply,divide),
calculations with fractions, % and ratio,
ordering values and calculations with metric measures (length, weight, capacity, maybe area, volume, perimeter), time and temperature.
handling data, mean, median, mode, range, line graphs and bar charts, maybe scatter graphs, maybe pie charts
possibly simple probability
possible simple algebra - putting values into a given formula

If you need to revise anything, sites like mathsgenie.co.uk are helpful.

They may use the assessment to decide if you are suitable for the job or may just use it to check what support they will put in place to help you develop your skills when you start.
