Verbal Reasoning

In Herbert Smith’s verbal reasoning test you will be presented with a series of paragraphs which you will be required to read and then answer questions. Your options will be True, False or Cannot Tell. This test will be assessing your comprehension skills. As with the numerical tests, you will be timed and so ensuring that you balance your time between reading the passages and answering the questions is important. The best way to do this is to practice this type of test before you take the real one for the employer!

Group Exercise

This type of group exercise is designed to test your people skills and how you work within a group. You will be required to work within a group to solve a problem or answer a question that is provided by the assessors. You’ll be placed in groups and will be assessed on how you interact. Make sure to find a happy balance between being dominating and passive. The assessors are looking for someone who can contribute but not take over.

Case Study Presentation

This exercise is used to test your analytical skills and problem solving abilities. You’ll be presented with information which you will be expected to read and analyse within 45 minutes. You will then need to produce a presentation to give in front of the assessors. They will ask questions both in relation to the presentation but also to the wider case study so do ensure you read everything carefully. It is also advisable to read widely around the company and its values.
