Pearson/TalentLens Assessment

Prepare for your next Pearson test with tailor-made practice materials.

Firms looking to hire the brightest new minds in the legal world turn to Pearson to help them do so. Pearson owns the TalentLens platform, which provides a range of aptitude tests used by many different employers. These tests include DAT Next Generation and Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test (BMCT-ll), Watson Glaser and SOSIE 2nd Generation. The tests are as follows:

Watson Glaser

The Watson Glaser test presents you with limited information in order to evaluate how you process information and make decisions. The test also offers an opportunity to show your ability to think outside the box, which is why it is most commonly used by law firms and other professional practices.

A RANRA (rust advanced numerical reasoning appraisal) most often accompanies the Watson Glaser test when employers are recruiting for a more senior or managerial role. Similar to the Watson Glaser test, it assesses critical thinking but uses numerical reasoning to do so.


Specifically for legal professionals, BCAT (bar course aptitude test) is a variation of the Watson Glaser test, for barristers looking to claim their place on the bar professional training course.
