Often seen as an entry level requirement in the recruitment and selection process for many public and private sector organisations candidates must complete a series of Aptitude tests as part of the initial pre-screen process. They form the basis on companies’ decisions as to whether or not you meet the minimum criteria for selection to the next level.
