Cut-e Aptitude Tests

Cut-e is a company that develops new test formats and is used by financial companies who want to hire the best talent. They’re different from most test providers as their tests take around 12 minutes or less to complete. Cut-e host tests on a portal called mapTQ so you may receive an invite from the employer to access the system. Cut-e has a wide range of tests including:

Cut-e Numerical ability tests

Taking between 5-12 minutes depending on the complexity of the test and the role you’re applying for, these tests are designed to test your general mathematical and numerical abilities.

Cut-e Verbal ability tests

Unlike traditional verbal reasoning tests, Cut-e’s tests require you to read multiple short passages of text at the same time. They’re organised into separate tabs, and you’ll be required to establish which tab has the necessary information to complete the questions.

Cut-e Abstract logical ability tests

There are two versions of Cut-e’s logical ability tests. The first is for technical roles such as engineering. This test evaluates deductive reasoning capabilities and can take from 5-15 minutes to complete. The second is used for graduates and evaluates how well you can discover and apply rules, as well as inductive reasoning. These tests take between 5-12 minutes.

Cognitive Ability Tests

The tests in this section vary in length and are typically used for hiring aviation roles including pilots and air traffic controllers. They include:

1-3 minutes

  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Short term memory
  • Perception of speed
  • Orientation

The tests below are typically used when hiring for customer facing roles, technical jobs and quality assurance:

2-10 minutes

  • Concentration
  • Multi-tasking
  • Visual thinking
  • Reactivity
  • Spatial thinking
  • Memory of faces
  • Learning efficiency

Unlike most E-tray exercises, Cut-e’s version is only 15 minutes long. You will need to manage an email inbox and prioritise tasks according to the objectives set out in the instructions.

Special knowledge/Skills tests

There are three types of specialist skills tests specific to the job specification:

  1. The first type covers mechanical and technical reasoning. They are 15 minutes long and include 24 questions. They are typically used for engineering roles.
  2. The second evaluates your language competency and covers ten languages: English, Spanish, German, Russian, Greek, Swedish, Portuguese, Norwegian, Finnish and Czech. It is 10 minutes long and will adapt the level of difficulty according to your answers.
  3. Lastly, they have created a calculating capacity test used for engineering and technical type roles.****

Cut-e scales clues

Just like the E-tray exercise, you’ll have to assess how you handle information under difficult circumstances. In just 15 minutes, you’ll have to take responsibility for a former-colleague who is managing a project but has left the business unexpectedly. The assessment helps employers to find the individuals who have managerial potential.

Cut-e personality, values and integrity questionnaires

Cut-e has produced three tests to help companies determine a candidate’s compatibility based on their personality and behavioural traits.

Values questionnaire

This questionnaire asks you to choose and evaluate the importance of different values and motivations. It usually takes between 10-20 minutes to complete.

Personality questionnaire

Cut-e have created five variations of this test, all of which will present you with statements that you will need to rate according to what best describes you. They usually take between 10-20 minutes to complete.

Integrity questionnaire

This questionnaire helps employers identify those candidates who may have undesirable work attitudes and behaviours.

Cut-e situational judgement questionnaires

Normally, situational judgement tests assess your competence in making the right decision within a workplace situation. The Cut-e test is a little different as it’s a questionnaire, which means it hasn’t got a time limit.
