If you are taking the Wonderlic Test soon, make sure that you spend the required time preparing and reviewing your skills, if you want to ensure that you get the best possible score. The Wonderlic score is based on industry, the skills needed to perform in the role, and so much more. Simply getting the average score might not be good enough for many workplaces, so you should always aim to get the highest score possible and reflect your full potential.
You want to make sure that you are tapping into your full potential and that you put your best foot forward. After all, it’s an important test that can shape your future career and how likely you are to get the job of your dreams.
Without further ado, lets’ take a look at our top tips for preparing for the Wonderlic test.
Know the Time Limit
This is a big one. You need to know the time limit and how that translates per question. The Wonderlic test is made up of 50 questions (which is quite a large number). While 50 might not initially seem like much, it’s a huge amount when you consider that you only have 12 minutes to answer them all. You don’t get any extra time, and you have to answer every single question to get the best possible score. This translates to less than 15 seconds per question, which is scary when you think about it!
When was the last time you did algebra in 15 seconds, or read and comprehend a passage well enough to answer questions on it? If you think about it like that, it becomes apparent quickly how challenging this test is. Most people never even manage to finish the test, so it’s no wonder that the average score is less than 50%. Knowing and understanding the time limit is a vital step in your success. Additionally, you need to ensure that you practice questions using this time limit, to ensure that you fully understand the effects of this time limit on how you approach the questions.
Know the Material
Do you know the type of questions in the Wonderlic test? Do you know the way they are phrased and how they expect you to answer? Do you know what you should be studying to get the best results? If you answered no to any of these questions, then I highly recommend taking the time to review a Wonderlic preparation course. Taking the time and effort to revise the content and get familiar with the test will make the whole process so much easier. After all, it makes it a lot less scary when you have experienced, and it is a lot easier to do too. This is a great way to ensure that you put your best foot forward on the day of the test and get the best possible results. Practice in real-time and get familiar with the questions that are being asked. This is easily the best way to improve your results and feeds into understanding the time limit too. If you can combine these two suggestions, your chances of success go up immediately!
Now that you have our top tips, we highly recommend that you start practicing and delving into test preparation as quickly as possible. The more time you have to familiarize yourself with the test, the better. Understanding your potential grade, the correlation to IQ results and how you can improve your score will go a long way to getting the results that you need. Know what score your industry expects and try to get a score that is a bit better than that, to put you in the best possible situation for success.
Preparation is key to this, and you must keep that in mind. Mental and physical preparation play a role too, so keep hydrated, sleep well and try not to stress too much about the test. When you are prepared, it is easier to go in with a calm head and a level heart and your success will be so much more likely if you can do that. Study hard and good luck!
