The Problem with the Official Practice Tests

The NZ Police Aptitude test is run by the Opra Group (now owned by Talogy). I recommend you take their practice tests but the problem is, they don’t show you the answers nor provide full-size tests. This is why I created this website; to provide full size practice tests with answers and explanations to all questions including timers, providing you the closest experience to the NZ Police entrance aptitude test as possible.

Info - NZ Police Psychometric Test

General Overview

  • 60 Multiple Choice Questions
  • Questions are presented in a random order
  • 30 mins to complete the assessment
  • This allows 30 seconds per question. Some questions will be harder than others. If you feel like it’s taking too long, take note of the number and come back to it if you have time.
  • Test are to be completed without the aid of a calculator, dictionary etc. Because this is an online test conducted where you are situated, there is no way to monitor whether you are using outside aids. The numerical questions are basic enough to be able to work them out in your head, although I do recommend having a pen & paper handy to assist, which is abiding by the NZ Police recommendations.

Types of Questions found on the Entrance Test

– Your job is to identify the pattern amongst the shapes shown in order to select the correct answer.

– Sometimes, two possible answers may have a similar associated so it’s up to you to work out which one best fits (tricky I know!)

Why I Created this Website

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

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

Back in 2018, I applied into the Victoria Police (Australia), later withdrawing 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.

As a result, I created a series of practice exams, built the websites; (VictoriaAU Federal PoliceQLDWANZDF) and have since helped over a thousand recruits.

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 coupled with the like for like ones from the ACER website really created a great practicing environment, I believe set me up for success. So, thank you!” – Oct 2020

Results of the Victoria Police Entrance Assessment

What Does This Website offer?

– All questions are the same format and length as the official NZ Police entrance assessment and can be accessed via mobile or desktop.

– Trust is important and its hard to build it over a website, therefore, I offer a full-refund if your not happy with the practice exams.

– Explanations are provided for all 3 sections of the assessment; verbal, abstract & numerical.

– Giving back to the community is important as serving the community so 10% of all proceeds are donated to the Fred Hollows Foundation.

– Still looking for extra help or stuck on a section? Get in touch (below) and I will be happy to help you out where I can.

Finally…

Whether you decide to purchase these exams or not, either way, all the best with your prep!
