The Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test (BMCT), developed by Pearson Assessments, is a popular assessment used in several elds, 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.

BMCT Sample Questions





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.



The correct answer is (B).

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

Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test Format

There are two tests that di er from each other; BMCT and BMCT II:

BMCT: consists of 68 multiple-choice questions and has a 30-minute time limit. It can be administered on paper or online and is available in two
forms, Form S and Form T.

BMCT II: consists of 55 multiple-choice questions and has a 25-minute time limit. It is administered online only.

For those who plan to take the BMCT II, it is important to be familiar with basic concepts in physics as well as physics terminology.

For comparison sake the BMCT I, there are 136 items split into 18 categories of mechanical principles:

Category Number of Items

Acoustics 3

Belt Drive 2

Center of Gravity 7

Centrifugal Force 5

Electricity 6

Gears 10

Gravity and Velocity 9

Heat 8

Hydraulics 16

Inertia 5

Levers 8

Optics 6

Planes and Slopes 2

Pulley Systems 10

Shape and Volume 7

Structures 12

Miscellaneous 14

On the BMCT II, there are 55 items split into 12 categories of mechanical principles:

Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test Tips

The following are test-taking tips for the BMCT:

▪ Always look for the underlying physical principle in the question and how it can be applied to other questions (e.g. law of the lever, gear ratio).

▪ Unless otherwise mentioned, neglect all “real world minutiae” – self-weight of elements, air resistance, friction, material strength, etc. Only
physical principles matter.

▪ If you’re not sure of an e ect, go to the extremes (e.g. if you’re asked whether it’s harder to row with a long or a short paddle, think of a 1km vs
a 1cm paddle).

▪ If you’re still not sure, envision yourself in the situation. In mechanical reasoning, more than any other subject, intuition is your friend.

▪ If the illustration shows two elements which seem to be identical, it is safe to assume they are identical.

▪ Before taking the test, make sure you get a good night’s rest and eat an energizing breakfast to help you concentrate.

▪ Read the test instructions and questions carefully before answering and answer questions at a steady, e cient pace.

▪ Prepare before taking your test with our exclusive BMCT PrepPack™.

Bennett Mechanical Comprehension FAQ's

Below are frequently asked questions, which address inquiries often made about the BMCT.

What Are the Bene ts of Doing Well on the Test?

Scoring high on the BMCT displays good spatial perception and mechanical reasoning ability. It also displays your knowledge of basic mechanical
operations and physical laws, as well as an aptitude for learning mechanical processes and tasks. This, in turn, shows employers that you are a
quali ed candidate, thus heightening your chances of getting the job you applied for.
