1. Our Institute's special preparation for Bond's Psychometric tests

Our success rate in preparing for Bond’s psychometric tests was 96% in 2019 and 95% in 2020 and 97% in 2021.

Based on the changes in the selection process made in 2018, if you are applying to join the faculty for medicine at Bond University, you will be asked to complete, as part of your entrance exam, two screening phases after your academic scores have been analysed:

  • In your initial screening you will be asked to complete two psychometric tests – a Personality test and an Emotional Intelligence test
  • In your second screening phase (following successful completion of your initial screening phase), you will be asked to attend an interview day on campus which includes 4 stations.

How do we ensure that you pass your Psychometric tests and Interviews?

1. You will be tutored by Australian psychometric test experts.

2. Our expert trainers will work with you to improve your weaknesses so you can pass the psychometric tests with flying colours.

3.  We have tutored many applicants to the medical program for the past three years and have a success rate of 95%.and above in the last 2 years.

Bond university’s Medical program screening process:

  • Invitation to submit your application and scores
  • Then you will be invited via email to complete your Psychometric tests either on-campus (suprvised) or online (from home). Bond wants to try to get as many applicants to complete their tests on campus. Everyone will get 2 days (48 hours) to complete all tests.
  • Then, around 3 after the deadline to complete your psychometric tests, you will receive an electronic invitation to attend the interview day at the university campus.
  • Interviews are typically conducted a week after invites are sent.
  • Then, around a week after completing the interviews round, you will receive the final outcome and the invitation to attend the program.

 

What type of psychometric tests you will need to take forBond's Medical Program?

Bond university’s medical program are using two types of psychometric tests to assess your suitability for their program:

1. A measurement of general personality focusing on assessing candidates’ ability to cope with stress and pressure, planning tasks, ability to work with others etc. This test is not timed and includes 185 forced choice test questions

2. A measurement of your emotional intelligence focusing on assessing candidates’ ability to identify emotions, facilitate thought, understanding emotions and managing emotions. This test includes 141 forced choice test questions.

Bond's personality test

The personality test includes more than 100 forced-choice test questions. This personality test is designed to assist Bond University to identify your suitability for the role of a Doctor. It includes factors such as coping with stress, empathy to others, ability to approach tasks in a planned manner, ability to work with others, how assertive you are and more.

Please review the following example of a personality test question:

I like to be a singer.

To waht extent do you agree with this statement:

  • Strongly disgree
  • Disagree
  • Agree
  • Strongly Agree

This test question is a covert type of personality test question that measures your social confidence and ability to interact with others. 

The risk with taking the personality test is that you can easily get a personality profile that says that you are not suitable. It is improtant to ensure that you answer the personality test in the proper way to get a suitable profile score. 

Bond's Emotional Intelligence test

The Emotional Intelligence test includes over 100 forced-choice test questions. The Emotional Intelligence test measures your emotional reasoning based on several sections:

  1. Identify emotions in facial expressions.
  2. Identify emotions that will facilitate certain behaviours.
  3. Identify emotions based on behaviours.
  4. Identify how effective are certain actions in facilitating emotions.
  5. Identify emotions in abstract drawings and scenery images.
  6. Identify associations for emotions.
  7. Identify effective emotions.

The emotional intelligence test has a wide range of test questions styles which makes the test a fairly complicated one to answer.

Please review the following example of one style of test questions for the emotional intelligence test:

How much is each feeling below expressed in this picture?

Happy 1-5

Sad 1-5

Fear 1-5

Anger 1-5

Disgust 1-5

Here you need to analyse the content and colours of the image presented to identify the correct emotions and the intensity of each emotion on a scale of 1 to 5.

Now, let's review a very different style of test questions in the same emotional intelligence test:

How much is each feeling in the list below expressed by this face?

Happiness (1-5)

Sadness (1-5)

Fear (1-5)

Anger (1-5)

Disgust (1-5)

Here you need to analyse the facial expression to identify the correct emotion and the intensity of the emotion on a scale of 1 to 5.

These are only 2 examples out of a wide range of test questions styles in the emotional intelligence test.

 

2. Our special preparation for Bond's interviews (MMI and Role-Play):

Our success rate in preparing for Bond’s interviews has been very high in 2019, 2020 and 2021.

  • The first station focuses on you and you will are asked three questions about you and the medical program. This a very critical station as this is the first time that Bond gets to meet you and hear why you want to enroll into the program.
  • The second station will be a role play in which you are asked to respond to an actor playing a role. How you respond and what type of emotions you demonstrate will determine how well you will succeed in this station.
  • The third and forth stations will have written scenarios in which you will be asked three questions about each scenario.
