You will be given a ‘target’ number. You then choose from 6 other numbers to make the target number with the appropriate operations (add, subtract, multiply, divide). Level 1 involves addition. Level 2 involves addition and subtraction. Level 3 involves all four rules including the use of brackets. Don’t be fooled – this is harder than it looks!

These tests require you work out why the numbers presented form a pattern – this is usually a sequence of numbers changing according to certain rules. For Level 1 you have a sequence of numbers in a line and you have to work out which number is missing. For Level 2 there are two series of numbers to work with. For Level 3 you are presented with a matrix of 16 numbers to work with.
You will be presented with a flat design which, when folded makes a shape. You will need to choose from 4 alternatives the only shape that could be made from the design. The 3 levels increase the complexity of what you have to visualise.
You will be presented with six images (the A pattern) all of which have something in common – there is a rule that makes them similar. Another 6 images (the B pattern) will use a different rule. You will need to decide whether decide whether a further image fits the A or B pattern or neither. There are 2 levels of difficulty and then a 3rd level which uses pictures instead of shapes.
These tests present images (either shapes or pictures) in a 3×3 matrix – but one image is always missing. You must choose one of 6 images further images that fits best in the missing box. ‘Best’ means identifying a logical sequence either across or down the matrix or both. There are 2 levels of difficulty and then a 3rd level which uses pictures instead of shapes.
These tests require you to read passages of text and to decide whether certain statements follow logically from the information in the passage i.e. True, False or Can’t Tell. The test is timed to reflect how an employer would ask you to complete it and to give you a realistic score for comparison.
This questionnaire is not available free of charge.

These tests require you to analyse numerical information presented as graphs, tables and other forms of chart. The questions will require that you identify the right numerical information and produce a solution using basic numerical skills (such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, ratios etc.). The test is timed to reflect how an employer would ask you to complete it and to give you a realistic score for comparison.
These tests require you to detect patterns amongst groups of pictures or shapes. You will be presented with six images (the A pattern) all of which have something in common – there is a rule that makes them similar. Another 6 images (the B pattern) will use a different rule. You will need to decide whether a further image fits the A or B pattern or neither. The test is timed to reflect how an employer would ask you to complete it and to give you a realistic score for comparison.
This test is designed to measure areas of cognitive functioning that are important in today’s information rich world. It simulates both complexity and ambiguity by presenting a table of codes which, when combined, could be interpreted in a number of different ways. The test requires that the ‘best’ interpretation is chosen but also that there is some awareness of the degree of ambiguity it contains. This is measured by rating the confidence a person has in the answer they have given. In real life people who recognise the complexity and ambiguity in the information available to them can use approriate strategies to reduce the risk of poor decisions such as seeking further clarification or even delaying a decision.
This test requires you to read certain rules and apply them to successive panels that contain shapes of different colours in various positions. The challenge is to remember the rules and to apply them quickly and accurately. As you go through the panels the number of rules increases and they get increasingly complex. It produces an overall score summarising speed and accuracy together with 4 further scores giving further information about how information is being processed. The test is in two parts and it takes aprroximately 30 minutes which includes the time to read the instructions and complete the practice examples .

These tests require you to identify a relationship between two words or concepts and apply that logic to a second pair of words? This was once the most common format to use when measuring verbal reasoning and was part of many ‘IQ’ tests. Today they are still used especially in the field of education
