Free Career Quiz

Our free Career Quiz (the Spartan Test) is incredibly easy to use. You need no prior knowledge. You don’t need to have started planning your future yet. All you need to do is choose a picture.

You select 1 image from a possible 4. You do this with different images a total of 48 times. That’s it. All you need to do is make a quick instinctive decision on which image (if any) best represents you. Don’t take too long and don’t analyse too deeply on possible hidden meanings!

If you don’t like any of the images, don’t choose one – use the ‘none of the above’ button below the images.

All the complicated scoring, algorithms and databases that drive this visual quiz are behind the scenes.

This morning I did the Spartan test with one of our profoundly autistic, highly academic but non-verbal students and the results were great. He understood how to answer the test and it produced a cloud of results that I certainly wouldn’t ever have come up with but will give him hours of research material as he thinks about university or apprenticeships. Amazing!

Thousands of students, teachers, careers advisers, university outreach officers and national experts in personality profiling have used our free career quiz. The word cloud to the left shows schools throughout the UK whose students have used the Spartan Test. We’ve had students who are studying GCSEs, A levels, International Baccalaureates, Scottish Highers and even grown-up career advisors take the Spartan Test. If you haven’t done it yet, take the Spartan Test today and explore your possible future.

It is not only the most accurate test I have used, and a few other staff have said the same, but the amount and diversity of information that you can then delve into is brilliant!

The Career Cloud Quiz is free because we wanted it to be. SACU firmly believes that free access to key information on the reality of future study and career choice is vital. We hope schools and colleges across the country will promote this free service to their students – and if they want to help their students further, we do offer them a Career Cloud package at a very good price!


Students using our Career Cloud tools can now, quickly and easily, share the progress of their research into careers, degrees and apprenticeships with their parents, guardians, teachers, career advisors and trusted friends…it’s just one click away! Parents can:
