The Problem with the SHL Practice Tests

The SHL tests (official test providers) are great but there are only one practice test for each section & they don’t show your answers nor provide explanations to the answers. 

Not great if you’re concerned about passing the entrance test.
I built this website to fix these problems.

The information below is based on my experience sitting the NZ Firefighter Aptitude Test, completed July 2022.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

You will have two tests to complete; the General Ability & the Mechanical Comprehension

General Ability & Mechanical comprehension = 10mins

Important: You will have 1 week to complete the online aptitude test once you receive the invitation email from Fire & Emergency.

The General Ability test has 12 Questions and is made up of abstract, verbal, numerical and literacy questions.

 

The Mechanical Comprehension test has 15 Questions and is made up a various questions testing your knowledge on a range of subjects, ie, electric circuits, forces applied to objects, how different objects rotate within a mechanism, what effect pulleys have on a system etc.

This questions is common but difficult to answer. It depends on the individual.

I found the general ability test to be straightforward and found the mechanical reasoning challenging. Why? because I don’t have a natural brain for mechanical stuff. 

The practice questions found on this website are of similar difficulty level as the entrance exam.

Passing the General Ability is crucial. Yet, as it states on the email from Fire & Emergency you will receive, passing the Mechanical comprehension is not required. You have to complete it and no doubt, your score will be used to help rank different applications. How important that score is in terms of ranking is anyone’s guess. Obviously, the higher you score on both tests, the better.

Yes! For the General Ability test, they expect you to answer all the questions and will penalise you if you do not.

All questions are presented one at a time.
At the top of the screen is the timer and at the bottom is the progress bar showing you how many questions remain.
Overall, very easy and simple to use.

You will sit the General Ability Test first.

No, once you answer a question, you cannot go back.

Before you take each test, you will be shown a number of sample questions with explanations on how to answer them. There is no time limit for going through these.

As per the official guidelines, make sure you have a quiet space where you won’t be interrupted.

Have a calculator and pen and paper on hand.

If you’re struggling on a question, don’t skip it. Take an educated guess but remember, you cannot go back and answer questions if you have time left at the end.

 

 

Why I Created NZ Firefighter Aptitude Practice Test

My name is Luke and I built this website to help recruits like yourself who are on the path to joining NZ Fire and Emergency.

How? By Offering you extra practice material specific to the NZ Firefighter Aptitude Test at an affordable price.

By offering extra practice exams, it gives you the opportunity to build upon your strengths, work on and improve any weaknesses you may have and finally, to take the entrance test with more confidence.

How did I get the idea to create this website?

Back in 2018, I applied into the Victoria Police (Australia) and later withdrew my application. However, after sitting their aptitude test, I realised there was an opportunity to help other candidates who were in a similar situation to me when I prepared for the test; they wanted extra practice with similar questions to the official aptitude test.

Since then, I created a series of practice exams for the following organisations: NZ PoliceNZ Defence ForceVictoria PoliceAustralia Federal PoliceQLD PoliceWA PoliceVIC FirefightersNSW Firefighters and QLD Firefighters, helping thousands of recruits like yourself pass their entrance test.

Over that time, I’ve received some great feedback such as from Jacob:

“I want to give a huge thanks for making some affordable practice materials for the entrance exam, it was really helpful leading up to my exam (which I did really well in). Your exams really created a great practicing environment, I believe set me up for success. So, thank you!”

I find helping others to be rewarding & I’ve proven to be quite successful at creating quality aptitude tests. I’m proud of the work I create and am happy to help you out if you’re stuck on a question or wanting advice to prepare for the test. Drop me a line below.

All the best,
Luke
