The questions vary depending on the type of analytical reasoning test you’re taking: from extracting key information from complex passages of text (verbal reasoning), to looking for patterns in a series of images (non-verbal reasoning), or using given information to draw conclusions or make predictions (inductive and deductive reasoning).

Analytical Reasoning Tests Tips

1Background research

Get as much background information as possible on the test you’ll be taking from the employer or recruiter, so you know which areas to focus on.

2Prepare with mock tests

Preparation is key – take mock tests in a quiet, distraction-free area and always make sure you go back through your answers at the end to identify any areas you need to work harder at.

3Tips for test day

On the test day itself, make sure you have everything you need to complete the test. When you start, ensure you know roughly how long you’ve got to answer each question, as although you’ll always need to work quickly, it’s important to read the question thoroughly and ensure you’ve understood it before getting started.

4Stay positive

Try and remain positive. The tests are designed to be challenging, since employers want to push you. If you’ve put the time and effort into practising aptitude tests, you should feel confident you’ve given yourself the best chance possible to succeed.

    Analytical reasoning

    Although the test required from the test-taker a fair level of analytical reasoning, most of the problems followed a set pattern. One could easily solve a particular problem on the basis of the understanding developed from attempting the previous ones.
