Mechanical reasoning is your ability to understand and apply mechanical concepts in order to solve problems. Mechanical aptitude tests are regularly used in the hiring process for more technical job roles.
Mechanical Reasoning Ability is one of the 4 specific abilities measured by recruiters. It is required in a number of highly manual or technical roles, particularly in fields such as engineering, airlines, the emergency services and skilled trades. BMCT-ll was developed to measure the following abilities that are required for success in specific job roles or training courses:
BMCT is a proven predictor of performance in roles requiring knowledge of these abilities. In addition those with higher BMCT-II scores are more likely to have greater spatial awareness.
For more than 60 years BMCT has been used as an objective and valid assessment to identify candidates with good spatial perception and mechanical reasoning abilities, as well as those with an aptitude for learning mechanical processes and tasks. It is used in three primary applications:
The online format and item-banked items allows off-site, unproctored screening early in the hiring process, with no two applicants receiving the same set of questions.
