What to expect in Bond's selection process for medical program:

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 two screening phases after your academic scores have been analysed:

Psychometric test screening phase

In this phase you will receive an invitation from Bond's medical school to complete two psychometric tests – a Clinical personality test and an Emotional Intelligence test. These tests are to be completed proctored (supervised) to ensure that everyone gets a fair go.

Interview screening phase

Once you successfully passed the psychometric test phase, Bond will invite you to attend the next screening phase - interview stations on campus. This phase includes 4 to 5 interview stations. Each station, which takes 7 minutes, measures a separate component of the applicant's suitability. 

The path for Bond's Feb intake:

What to expect in Bond's psychometric tests:

For the past 4 years Bond University’s medical program uses two types of psychometric tests to assess your suitability for their program:

1. Bond's clinical personality test - 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 over 200 forced choice test questions

2. Bond's Emotional Intelligence test - 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 1st psychometric test - clinical personality test

This Bond psychometric test is a clinical personality test that includes over 200 forced-choice test questions. Bond's personality test is designed to assist Bond to identify your suitability for the role of a medical practitioner and medical student. It includes personality traits such as coping with stress, confidence, depression, ability to manage anger, planning skills, ability to work with others, how assertive you are and more.

Please review the following example of a personality test question:

People often turn out not be as nice as they seem.

To what extent do you agree with this statement:

  • Strongly disagree
  • Disagree
  • Neutral
  • Agree
  • Strongly Agree

This test question is a covert type of personality test question that measures your trust in others. Trust is a very important factor in Bond's decision regarding whether you are likely to be a good medical student and medical practitioner or not.

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 important to ensure that you answer the personality test in the proper way to get a suitable profile score. 

Bond's 2nd psychometric test - emotional intelligence test

Bond's second psychometric test is an emotional Intelligence test that includes over 100 forced-choice test questions. Bond's emotional intelligence test measures your overall emotional reasoning based on eight different emotional intelligence abilities:

  1. Identifying emotions in facial expressions.
  2. Understanding how emotions facilitate behaviours.
  3. Understanding how and why emotions change.
  4. Managing positive and negative emotions.
  5. Identifying how visuals can impact emotions.
  6. Identifying associations for emotions.
  7. Ability to understand and manage multiple emotions.
  8. Ability to use emotions to manage relations.

Bond's psychometric test - emotional intelligence test has a wide range of test questions styles which makes this psychometric test a fairly challenging one to answer.

Please review the following example of one style of test questions for Bond's 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.
