analytical reasoning tests

Analytical reasoning tests examine an individual’s ability to apply logic to solve problems. 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).

Which of the boxes comes next in the sequence?


Verbal Question 1: True – “to secure the price of a commodity which is to be “bought” at a future date, but at a price that is set today.”

Verbal Question 2: Cannot tell – the passage refers to both this fact, extended life expectancy, and that the value of pension fund assets has fallen.

Diagrammatic Question 1: There is a central figure and four figures with one in each corner: (i) The central figure firstly increases in size over a series of three, then decreases in the same fashion; (ii) The central figure changes from white, to having a dotted outline, to black; and (iii) The four figures rotate around the four corners, moving two corners at a time. So the correct answer is F.

Numerical Question 1: Step 1. Extract the relevant figures from the graph Cost of per click in April. Google 18 cents : Facebook + Yahoo (14 + 6 = 20 cents). Step 2. Divide 20 by 18 to calculate the ratio. 20 ÷18 = 1.11 Step 3. Present as a ratio 1 : 1.11

Abstract Question 1: Arrow changes direction from pointing up, to pointing down, with each turn. 2. Triangle moves from top left corner in an anti-clockwise direction around the frame with each turn. So the answer is B.

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.

    Good :)

    My brain had a hard time focusing and differentiating between them, trying to recognise a pattern was difficult.

    A bit tougher than I thought.

    I like having more context about a problem and solution needed than just sequential patterns and boxes.

    pattern comprehension

    The consistency in the question's visual requests of the participant made the test feel less intimidating.

    I found this test in the top google search results.

    I like that there was a practice test and a timed test, and I liked the design and UI of this test as well.
