The JP Morgan numerical reasoning test assesses your ability to analyse numerical data in the shape of a graph, table or chart, and use the information provided to answer questions. You may use a calculator in this test, which if used properly can save you a lot of time in the test, but if you haven’t done these type of calculations before, you may waste time trying to come to an answer that looks right. Review how to use a calculator in a numerical reasoning test with our online guide to using calculators. In the JP Morgan test, you have 18 to 25 questions to answer in 20 to 25 minutes. You need to do well in these tests, and as with anything, practice makes perfect. Fortunately, JobTestPrep’s specially developed SHL-style numerical reasoning practice tests will help you prepare.
Verbal Reasoning Test
Some positions at JP Morgan (see table below for more details) require you to take an online verbal reasoning test. These tests measure a variety of skills including language abilities and different aspects of critical thinking and reasoning. Advanced critical thinking tests can rely on rigorous logic patterns which may seem strange to the untrained eye but with some practise in their methods with the JobTestPrep test series you will be on your way in no time at all.
Inductive Reasoning Test
The next assessment you may come across is the JP Morgan inductive reasoning test. This test assesses your ability to understand unfamiliar information and use your lateral thinking skills to find solutions to convoluted problems without using words or numbers. You will be presented with a variety of different shapes and matrices that have a particular logical pattern running through them. You have to discern what the pattern is and use this information to choose the correct option from the possible answers. Practise these tests here.
Situational Judgement Test
Finally, some recruiting managers may require you to take a situational judgement test or SJT. SJTs examine your responses to situations that may come up in the workplace. The tests are usually workplace specific. In this test you are given a hypothetical scenario and a list of possible resolutions. You are asked to choose the best and worst options. You can prepare for the situational judgement test by taking practice tests and putting yourself into “work mode” whilst answering the questions. Put yourself in the head of a JP Morgan employee by reading up on the key traits they are looking for in. Practise situational judgement tests with JobTestPrep’s SJT preparation packs.
