So I have applied for a graduate scheme at HS2 and for the online assessment I need to complete an Intellect Assessment, which is split into 3 parts. Could someone please help me in how to prepare for this?

Bearing in mind maths is my weakness

The numerical tests companies deploy typically require calculating basic percentage increases/decreases, ratios and sometimes compound interest. You can search "free psychometric numerical tests" in Google and do some practice papers for free from various websites.

I am yet to complete it but I believe it consists of different sections like numerical, verbal, inductive etc.

Which assessment report did you get back? I only got the values one and haven’t received anything for my numerical/verbal or anything!

I only received an assessment report via email for the values. Received no other feedback via email. Unless I missed it during the other tests, I received no other feedback. Have not since heard back for about two weeks now.

I don't think they send a feedback report for the numerical/verbal part of the assessment, it was only the value section.

It's a matter of a waiting game now

Hi 0le, Congratulations on your interview. Wondering if you completed the video assessment? I am also due to complete mine and a little nervous as it is my first pre-recorded interview. Do you remember what questions came up?

Do the video assessment and stop asking for the questions. The emails give you all the information you need. The assessment is very simple compared to other video assessments.
