  • PLI Assessment

    Has anyone done this assessment for a certain company? 50 questions in 12 minutes? Would be interested to know a bit more about it, was slightly more challenging then I anticipated whilst I completed it over my morning coffee.

    No idea what you are asking about......most of those tests though u answer what you can and its tbe proportion of right v wrong as opposed to just a plain high score
    Trust me I'm a Chief.

    Views expressed by me are mine and mine alone.
    Yes I work for the big blue canoe company.
    No I do not report things from here to them as they are quite able to come and read this stuff for themselves.

      I think that might be it Chiefy It seems impossible to do all 50 with accuracy, I was surprised as I worked through to look up and see the time had already reach a few minutes remaining.
      It's a mix of mathematics, patterns, images etc. Very weird. It's part of a recruitment process for a large multinational shipping/offshore company.

          Yes something like that, but also with numeracy and number patterns.

            Quite common as you start going up in the world although some companies use them for everyone, always referred to as psychometrics, just done a few for Piloting jobs and having asked for feedback I get the impression that quality wins over quantity. Practise as per the free ones like Midge linked and my top tips are:

            Don't rush - better not to complete them all but get them all right (most of these tests are designed never to be fully completed by the candidate!)

            Numerical - write a cheat sheet of fractions into %, estimating values etc
            Spacial - practise the patterns - look for shaded areas v non shaded etc
            Verbal - don't assume anything in the passages!
            Emotional IQ - Don't blag it and answer it with you gut reaction.
            Pilotage - It's just a controlled allision

              Thanks Chris, I wish I'd done a bit of research before tackling the one I did. I think your tips would have come in handy. It will be interesting to see the outcome anyway.
