Take a Practice Aptitude Test for the Australian Army, Air Force, Navy or Defence Force

Aspiring to join the Australian Air Force, Army, or Navy is a noble goal, but it’s one that requires some real preparation. You won’t just need to be physically fit to work in the Australian Defence Force—you’ll also need to sharpen your mental skills. There are a variety of tests required of people who want to pursue real careers in any of these organisations, including the Australian Defence Force Aptitude Test that every new member of the ADF must take as a preliminary measure. Scoring highly on this test can help you land roles as an officer later in your career, while low scores may prevent you from climbing the ranks and pose other challenges to your development.

Passing an Australian Air Force Aptitude Test, for example, is essential for those wishing to become pilots. There are also specific roles in other branches of the ADF that will require the applicant to pass an Australian Army Aptitude Test, or an Australian Navy Aptitude Test—depending on the job in question. Don’t be too worried about these tests, though—stress isn’t going to help your chances. What will increase your odds of getting a good score, however, is some good solid practice before your exam.

The myth that you can’t study for aptitude tests has very little bearing on truth whatsoever. While some people view aptitude tests as a way of measuring organic competencies, far more regard them as a benchmark for measuring how people think, as opposed to how well. That being the case, you can train yourself to achieve greater success on an aptitude test (even an IQ test) by taking practice tests ahead of time. These will get you to think along the same lines that the examiners expect when they devise the actual tests you’ll be taking to measure your “aptitude” and boost your likeliness of arriving at the correct answers.
