You may be required to take the MMAT in any of the following situations:

• ### Applying for a new job

When applying for a new job, you may be asked to take the MMAT. In some workplaces, the test is always used as part of the recruiting process. In other workplaces, however, the test is only used when all applicants are equally eligible and deciding who to recruit is difficult.

If you work in marketing, for example, your vocabulary score might be more important. Technicians, on the other hand, may require a higher score in the mathematical section.
