    Had a psychometric test today with northern in Manchester. And as the title says I failed. Performed the first four test s and was told done well, but failed in the the listening and writing test. And to say I’m gutted is an understatement! What I would say that to anyone who is going to be taking those tests in the future the pack that northern send out is good but there is no real test for the Tea oc test let me tell you those beeps come at you very fast! So I would say to someone else try and get a friend to play a keyboard 2 different notes continuously and perform counts as this will stand you in good stead. This is my first try so I have one more left in six months time so here’s hoping!!!

    Hi, gutted for you that you failed.
    Are you referring to the lift tones test, if so there is some software on the internet you can purchase to help you practise.

    Unlucky mate. Am sure next time around you'll smash it as you know what to expect. How many tones per second do you think, 2 ?

    Do you get a practice pack with them? If not I can send you the one I have, it will be different but give you an idea.

    Thanks mate. I did get one and have been on here a little while so know basically what tests there are. I'm quite confident on the group bourdon, GLOP memory stuff. A little nervous on the tones and the computer tests. We shall see
