Have you been invited to complete one of our 
questionnaires or tests?

Do you wonder what kind of tests you can get, why exactly you are being tested, or how best to prepare? Then you’ve come to the right page!

Candidate test types

What types of tests exist?

Cebir specializes in creating psychometric tests which are techniques used for measuring psychological phenomena such as knowledge, skills, attitudes, and personal characteristics. These tests include reasoning, knowledge, administrative skills, attention, and other types of tests depending on the skills required for the position. Additionally, questionnaires may be used to assess your motivation, personality, or social skills, such as leadership qualities, group spirit, or commercial skills.

How to prepare? 

Make sure you are well rested before taking the test

If you are unable to take the tests (for example due to illness), please report this to the person responsible.

If you take the tests at home: make sure you can work on the tests quietly and undisturbed.

Pay enough attention to the example exercises at the beginning of the test.

Ask for feedback after your test. That way you learn for next time.

Candidate test why

Why do employers use tests?

For example, tests are useful for evaluating larger groups of candidates at the same time. After all, psychometric tests are objective and neutral: everyone gets the same test and therefore the same chance. Thanks to tests, employers can therefore focus more quickly on candidates with the right skills and abilities.

In addition, the employer can use psychometric tests to determine whether you fit the organization or position in terms of personality.

Candidate test honesty

Honesty is the best policy

  • Our tests contain measurements that allow us to see how honestly you have approached the test.
  • Be yourself. If you pretend to be someone you are not on personality tests, this often leads to a strange and less positive personality image.
  • As a check, you may be asked to take the same test again under supervision.
  • When taking tests at home, do not use more aids than allowed. You will not make a good impression if later selection phases show that you perform less well than in the test you took at home.
