For anyone wanting to join as a soldier the Army has selection tests to show your strengths and help select a job that suits you. The aptitude, literacy and numeracy tests are done in an Army Careers Information Office, while the memory and teamwork tests take place at the selection centre.
The result of the tests is your General Trainability Index (GTI). This helps the Army selection board match you with roles that most suit your abilities. The higher you score, the more jobs you’ll have to choose from.
The tests are nomally split into five sections: reasoning, letter checking, number distance, odd one out and symbol rotation. You can practise them in the online example test. You don’t need to prepare for the test, but it will help on the day if you are familiar with the format. Knowing what to expect might help calm your nerves too. Remember that the test will be timed when you do it for real.
