Who can complete the aptitude assessments?
The aptitude tests in this service can be challenging and require both concentration and focus.
Candidates need to:
- Be able to concentrate fully for at least 30 minutes. We do not not recommend splitting the assessment session into more than three separate sessions of each around 35 minutes each.
- Have a reasonable knowledge of English language - band 5 or above on the IELTS 9-band scale. Those in bands 5, 6 or 7 (limited English) should complete the on-site Morrisby vocabulary test which will allow us to adjust their scores to compensate for their lack of English.
- Be aged 15 years or older. This can be extended down to 14 years 9 months. However, the tests are scaled using age-related norms and these are less reliable under 15 years of age because of differing rates of development.
- Eligible for main-stream schooling. The scales and norms have been developed using results from those in mainstream schools. Those who are likely to struggle significantly with these types of abstracted problems are unlikely to benefit from this element of the service. We advise them to complete the untimed interest and personality questionnaires.
Those with mild or moderate dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia and similar learning difficulties can complete the assessment using the standard time limits.
[Please contact Morrisby Support with details of the candidate's diagnosis so that appropriate adjustments may be made to the results after the session.
A blanket 25% extra time does not compensate for the nuanced nature of these conditions and their varied impact on differing assessments.
More information on learning difficulties can be found in our FAQs.]
