It is important for you to find out your score in the psychometric test you have taken so that you may identify your mistakes and work on improving them. Some recruiting agencies may provide feedback to the candidates immediately after an interview. This can be done through an email, or face-to-face interview or telephone call. Some companies will require a clear form of prompt from the candidates before releasing the results.
Usually, the recruiters allocate sufficient time for the feedback session. This allows for an in-depth review of results for each candidate. However, some companies may not provide results after conducting psychometric tests due to their company policies, thus restricting sharing of such information. If so, you should not criticize the testing process, the company or the recruiters’ competence; as it is wise for you to maintain your professionalism throughout the recruiting process. You should conduct a thorough research on what specific information is needed from test results and why this information is meaningful. However, you should do this before asking for the test resultsWhile receiving feedback, you should keep a positive mind and understand that everybody makes mistakes and you still have the chance to work on them. You should ask relevant questions during the review session to make sure you understand what your weaknesses and strengths are and how you can make the required adjustments. Whenever necessary, you should explain the positive sides of any weaknesses that were observed during the test to bring out how this can be beneficial for the business organization. Thus, you should take advantage of the feedback process and utilize the allocated time to the maximum. You should ensure that at the end of the review, you have properly understood what the recruiter was looking for in a potential employeeIn the event that the recruiter has not provided any feedback, a self-evaluation will be necessary for you. Self-evaluation may involve re-examining the test and the qualities under assessment and thinking constructively about the answers to each question. You should examine how much time was spent on each question and if the questions were prioritized adequately. By using reference materials, you may be able to establish how well you understood the vocabulary, diagrams, and images used in the psychometric test questions. Additionally, questions should be reviewed to gauge which ones were easily answerable and which ones needed further reading. This self-evaluation process will assist you to prepare much better for the future tests and make necessary adjustments to undesirable traits. Although a useful method, self-evaluation should be used with caution.
