Psychometric Testing

The definition of ‘psychometric’ combines the words ‘psyche’ meaning ‘mind’, as well as the word ‘meter’ meaning ‘measure’. Therefore, Psychometrics in short means the measurement of the mind. Psychometric Testing is a way of measuring an individual’s mental capabilities and behavioural style.

A psychometric test is a standardized test in which we measure the mental ability, interest, aptitude and personality of an individual.

These tests are fundamentally a set of physical and mental problems that intend and aid in understanding a person better. General examinations primarily focus on testing the learning capacity of a student but these specific tests focus on the mindset of a candidate. They address pertinent questions such as what talents and interests are hidden inside an individual or what are their abilities and skills.

On the basis of these tests we help the students in finding appropriate stream selection and career possibilities for the same.

For example, the results of these tests can comprehensively inform a Grade 10 student about which stream (Medical or Non Medical Sciences, Commerce, Humanities etc.) is best for their future career keeping in mind factors such as interests, skills, and ability. Similarly, a Grade 12 student is also steered towards a more favourable choice for their tertiary education. Therefore, through these tests, students are able to recognise their potential and direct their energies towards fields of education and employment that match their capabilities, personalities and interests in a manner which is based on accurate and logical assessments.
