Saville Assessment Aptitude Tests

Professor Peter Saville set up SHL before founding Saville Assessment. As a result, there are similarities between the two test providers, who both ensure legal firms are able to recruit the best minds through their aptitude tests and personality questionnaires. The following gives a comprehensive overview of all the Saville tests in existence:

Saville test series:

The test series varies depending on the role itself and the level of seniority:

Comprehension aptitudes - for operational, customer and administrative staff. Analysis aptitudes - for managerial, directorial and professional level staff. Apprentice aptitudes - for graduates, trainees and technicians. Executive aptitudes - for managerial, directorial and professional level staff. Technical aptitudes - for engineering and construction roles.

Saville test topics

Each series has an assessment for each of these topics:

  • Numerical
  • Verbal
  • Diagrammatic
  • Abstract
  • Error-checking
  • Mechanical
  • Spatial

Saville test formats

Saville assessments are broken down into two formats:

  1. Single aptitude tests - a longer form version of the aptitude tests which will take over 30 minutes to complete.
  2. Swift aptitude tests - a shorter version which takes less than 30 minutes.

All assessment topics can be taken as swift or single tests. Normally, the swift version is used at the first stage of the recruitment process.

Saville Waver personality questionnaire

The Saville personality questionnaire assesses your strengths and weaknesses, and how well your personality traits align to the company’s values. The test is split into two formats:

  1. Wave Professional Style - a 40 minute personality assessment.
  2. Wave Focus Style - a 13 minute version of the professional style.

Other Saville tests

Most hiring financial companies will use the numerical, and maybe even verbal, reasoning tests. But the following Saville tests are also in existence:

  • Diagrammatic aptitude
  • Error checking aptitude
  • Spatial aptitude
  • Mechanical aptitude
