Watson Glaser Critical Thinking

W-GCTA contains five sections designed to find out how good an individual is at analytical and logical reasoning and it measures ability to logically analyse assumptions, arguments, deductions, inferences and interpreting information.



You’ll be asked to prepare a presentation on a topic given in front of one of the assessors. You’ll be given this topic at the assessment centre and then allowed a short time to prepare. You will then be required to answer questions in order to demonstrate your knowledge of the company, how you present an argument and how you would work under pressure. It is therefore vital that you do your research.


Written Exercise

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. You will then need to produce a written report which will also be used to test your writing skills, spelling and grammar.


Group Exercise

This type of exercise is designed to test your people skills and how you work within a group. You will be required 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.
