  • Why do employers use numerical reasoning tests?

    Employers use numerical reasoning tests in order to understand a candidate's analytical skills and ability to deal with complex data. As large amounts of data are provided in a variety of formats such as tables, charts and graphs, the candidates are required to quickly interpret the data and perform calculations in order to solve the problems provided.

  • What is the numerical reasoning test format?

    Numerical reasoning tests include 20 multiple choice questions which need to be answered in 20 minutes. This one minute per question rule applies to both foundation level and advanced numerical reasoning tests. The only difference between the two is the complexity of the questions.

  • What skills does numerical reasoning test?

    Numerical reasoning tests will assess a candidates's numerical and analytical abilities. It will test their ability to deal with percentages, estimates, fractions, ratios, graphs and complex data sets.

      FAQs

      How difficult are the tests?

      We have two levels of numerical reasoning tests so they can be used for all levels within a company. The foundation level is typically given to more vocational roles, while the advanced level is used more senior and management positions.

      How long do the tests last?

      The allotted time for the numerical reasoning tests vary, but they're typically 15 - 20 minutes long. Likewise, the number of questions will be dependent on the complexity, but as a guide, candidates will be given about one minute per question.

      Are these tests available in my plan?

      We have a range of plans available. The difference between the plans is the number of test attempts permitted, not the type of tests. All our plans include our full test suite comprising all tests and all levels.
