The Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test (BMCT), developed by Pearson Assessments, is a popular assessment used in several fields, including technical and industrial occupations. The test was developed to measure a person’s aptitude for understanding and applying mechanical principles. From this, an employer may infer future performance in jobs that require these skills.

The BMCT assesses one’s mechanical aptitude, spatial visualization, application of physics, and deduction of "how things work". Additionally, there are two types of tests, the BMCT and the BMCT II. The BMCT is made up of 68 questions and has two forms of the test: Form S and Form T.

Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test - Sample Questions

Which of the following components restricts the electric current flow to a single direction?

a) Condenser
b) Diode
c) Resistor
d) Transducer
e) Switch

✔ The correct answer is B.

A diode is an electrical component which is mainly used to restrict electrical flow to one direction - similar to a check valve in water flow - by having high resistance in one direction and low resistance in the other.

Which segment of the wheel gets hotter when the brakes are applied? If both segments reach the same temperature, choose option 3. 

a) 1
b) 2
c) 3

When the brakes are applied segment 2 will become hotter than 1 as it is the area where the brake touches the wheel. Applying the brake to the wheel will generate friction and cause segment 2 to heat up.

What would the reflection of a man standing in front of a convex mirror look like?

a) The same upside down.
b) Straight but smaller.
c) Straight but larger.

✔ The correct answer is B.

A convex mirror scatters the rays of light and increases the field of view of the observer. In this case, there is only one option for mirroring the image: it will appear straight and smaller.
