I think it’s necessary to clarify a few things about the IQ test in the French Foreign Legion. Or the tests “psychotechniques” in French, because it’s one of the subjects people know the less about, but it’s also the most discussed after the physical tests.
It’s also important to know, that there is a big difference between the “psychological tests” and the “IQ test”. These are two very different things. The IQ test will show to the recruiters your ability to reason, calculate and solve spatial problems, so your Intelligence Quotient.
Until the psychological test is one of the few things you can’t anticipate, because it tries to determinate what kind of person you are. From the beginning, you are gonna fill out plenty of documents with many different questions such as:
- Have you ever tried to commit suicide
- Which is your favourite animal
- Do you easily make friends etc.
So I collected the 5 most important things to know about the IQ test in the French Foreign Legion
1.) You don’t have to speak or know a word in French to pass this test.
Naturally, the fact that the biggest part of the candidates don’t speak French is taken into account. I didn’t even know what I had to do until I saw the first question, because if you read the first chapters of my blog, you know I didn’t understand a word. Especially during the first weeks. So don’t worry!
2.) It is eliminatory
If you fail, you can’t continue the preselection and have to leave directly after the test. Normally you can go back in a few months if you want, but not before a certain period, which goes from 6 to 24 months.
3.) You can prepare
The IQ test consists mostly of logical reasoning tests, spatial reasoning tests and numerical reasoning tests. There are a lot of free IQ tests available on the Internet or so-called ‘real’ IQ tests. It’s a great idea to get a bit more familiar with the tests before the joining process, but don’t take the result too seriously. Here is a classical IQ test you can do for free, or prepare with the Legion Training up we made specifically for those who want to join the French Foreign Legion:

If you have the possibility, try to buy a book on Amazon too, but you don’t have to pass eight hours a day to drill for the IQ test either.
Once you passed the test in Aubagne, they won’t tell you the result. If it’s not good enough, you’ll find yourself very quickly outside of the regiment.
4.) It counts for your later career.
Maybe you think that it’s not very important right now, but it is, because a great score in the IQ test could open the gates for some specialties like combat medic, transmission or administrative jobs.
In French, it calls “niveau generale” (NG) and you get a score between 0 and 20. If you want to know your result, you should ask your platoon chief or a guy working in your company’s main office.
5.) You can better your result
Once you joined the Legion, you can go back to Aubagne to better your score if you volunteer for a training requiring a certain level. It’s a quite common process, so don’t worry. My company sent 4 legionnaires to redo the IQ test before going for a training in Castel.
