The Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test (BMCT) is a popular assessment used in several industries, including technical and industrial occupations. 

Test Format & Content

The BMCT, from Pearson Assessments, consists of 68 multiple-choice questions with a 30-minute time allotment and can be administered on paper or online. It is currently available in two forms, Form S and Form T. Illustrations and diagrams of encountered mechanisms used in different structures are provided and then followed by questions. The Bennett Mechanical Test is used to identify individuals with good mechanical reasoning abilities and spatial perception. The test measures a person's ability to understand and implement his/her knowledge of physical and mechanical elements in practical situations or in his/her applied job. For those who plan to take the BMCT, it is important to be familiar with basic concepts in physics and physics terminology.

The BMCT is used to assess the following:
