  • Graphic Arithmetic- 16 questions with a time limit of 30 minutes, measuring the ability to solve problems using information from prints.
  • Mechanical Concepts- 44 multiple choice questions about possible mechanical situations, with a time limit of 20 minutes.
  • Reading Comprehension- 32 questions with a time limit of 30 minutes- four text passages in total with several questions about each passage.

AEP MASS Test

The AEP MASS Test is used to select candidates for positions in the plant maintenance field, such as mechanics, electricians, steel workers, etc. It contains four subtests: mechanical concepts, assembling objects, reading comprehension, and mathematical usage.
  • Assembling objects- 20 questions with a time limit of 15 minutes, measuring your ability to visualize the correctly assembled form of an object.
  • Mechanical Concepts- 44 multiple choice questions about possible mechanical situations, with a time limit of 20 minutes.
  • Reading Comprehension- 36 questions with a time limit of 30 minutes.
