SHL Style Aptitude Tests

Law firms looking to hire the very best talent often rely on SHL’s 40+ years of experience in the talent assessment world. The SHL tests range widely in terms of subject matter and difficulty, and examine everything from a candidate’s numerical abilities, to their communication style. This is an overview of the SHL (sometimes known as CEB) tests:

SHL aptitude tests - logical, numerical and verbal reasoning tests.

SHL personality and behavioural tests - these tests give employers a clearer understanding of what makes you tick. These are some of the SHL tests that fall within the category:

Personality test - you’ll be asked to select the statements that best reflect your personality. Situational judgement test - this test presents a simulation of common workplace challenges. Motivational questionnaire - this will assess your behaviours and motivations in the workplace. Analytic test - you’ll be asked to read and analyse a brief so you can present back your recommendations and logical conclusions.

SHL tests vary in difficulty, depending on the role you’re applying for. Here are the different levels of test you may be asked to take:

SHL personnel test battery - normally used for administrative or clerical roles, these tests assess everything from proofreading and understanding written information, to calculations and data checking.

Graduate and managerial tests - you’ll be asked to complete these online or in an assessment centre.

Senior managerial tests - these tests are also split into two formats: verify tests, which are similar to graduate and managerial tests (but harder), and advanced managerial tests which range from numerical and verbal analysis, to numerical and verbal reasoning tests.
