The best preparation for EPSO style tests!

EPSO is the European Personnel Selection Office. If you apply for a job at the European Union, you will have to take an aptitude test by EPSO. EPSO has not developed it’s own test however. It uses SHL’s aptitude test.

Start your preparation by taking all the practice questions on EPSO’s website. Please note, that those practice questions are not similar in difficulty, amount or style to the real reasoning tests. To optimally prepare you also need to practice our EPSO style tests. By practicing our EPSO style tests, you will have a higher chance of getting a higher score and thus landing the job.

If you are applying for a job in the EU, you will have to take a reasoning skills test. Besides the reasoning skills test, you will also have to take several job specific tests. For instance: e-tray, group exercises, presentations or language comprehension tests. These practice tests are not included in this package. You can prepare for these tests through EPSO’s website. It is important to note, that most of these tests are difficult to prepare for, simply because you can not prepare for them. It is important to be yourself and show the assessor your way of thinking. Often, there are no wrong answers, as long as you can explain how you came to a specific answer!

This is how it works:

  1. After your online order you will receive an email with your login credentials.
  2. Login via “Courses” and access all your practice materials there.
  3. Start practicing immediately after your purchase.
  4. If you have any questions, use our contact form and we will answer as soon as possible.

Overview of our EPSO style practice package

EPSO uses SHL tests to test their candidates. They do not develop their test themselves.

Preparing for EPSO style tests:

The EPSO cognitive ability test consists of:

  1. Abstract reasoning: figure sequences.
  2. Numerical reasoning: tables and graphs.
  3. Verbal reasoning: reading comprehension.

Abstract reasoning – Figure sequences:

This measures how good you are at completing logical reasoning. The exercises consist of four figures that logically follow each other. On this basis, you must determine what the fifth figure will be. You will see several figures at the same time, each with their own logical connections. If you solve the elements separately, you can always exclude incorrect answers until you choose one correct answer.

Numerical reasoning – tables and graphs:

You will see a table or graph about which business administration questions are asked. To find the right answer. you have to get the right information from the table and make a short calculation. Common calculations are growth rates, exchange rates, and index numbers. Because few people work with similar issues on a daily basis, preparation is very important.

Verbal reasoning – reading comprehension:

You get to see a sample text with a statement or a question. Depending on the question you will have to answer the statement as “true”, “not true” or “can not say”. With an open question you will have to say something about the text. You must assess the statement or question based on the information in the text. It is important to limit yourself to the information in the text and not to make assumptions.

Frequently asked questions

How is the Hellotest practice material developed?

We have been active as assessment trainers since 2012. In the first instance you could only come to us for personal training:

  • one on one training,
  • group training,
  • workshops and training at universities and career fairs.

In 2015 we decided to put our developed training material online so that our candidates could practice after training.
Thanks to our many years of experience as an assessment trainer, we know exactly which variations exist for a component. We have developed questions about these components for each variation.
We have combined that knowledge with the parts that certain agencies require. We have been able to determine which variations are used by which agency. Then you will find the right variations in your training package.

How often can I retake the lessons / quizzes?

You can take our lessons and practice tests as often as you want during your subscription. If you want to retake a lesson or practice test, you can reset the lesson or quiz yourself via a button.

Can I practice with a timer?

All our practice tests are provided with a timer. The duration of the practice tests corresponds to the time that you get on the real test.

Our lessons are not provided with a timer. In this way you can become comfortable with all the questions and take as long as you want.

Where can I use the practice package?

All the training material is available online. So you can use it everywhere, as long as you have a working internet connection.

Our training material can be used on all modern devices (mobile, tablet, laptop and desktop) and in all modern browsers (IE, Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Safari etc.).

In which languages is the practice material available?

Click here for Dutch.

Can I get help if I get stuck with the material?

If you have questions about the exercise material you can always ask them here. We try to get back to you in two business days.

How do I know if I am ready for the assessment?

In our e-learning system, the recommended score is indicated for each practice test. That way you can estimate whether your score is good enough to start the real test.

You can do the practice tests until your score is good enough.

Who are we

Our aim is to help you get your dream job. Aptitude tests are used by most employers nowadays and are a major hurdle to candidates. As many as 50% of the candidates do not pass their aptitude test. We find this unfair.

By preparing for your aptitude test you can easily pass the test. You are not cheating, you are getting prepared. If you have never solved number sequences or never even seen a figure sequence you will not get a high score on your test. You may even fail. By practicing, you will be familiar with such types of questions. Now, you can actually take the test.
