Mercer Numerical Reasoning Tests

The Mercer Numerical Reasoning test comprises of questions which relate to graphs, percentages and tables whereby you will be asked to analyse data and choose from a set of multiple choice answers. There will be a time limit, usually a minute per question, and so practicing answering these type of questions in timed conditions is vital.

Mercer Verbal Reasoning Tests

For the Mercer 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 analytical 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.

Mercer Case Study Interview

In the Mercer Case Study Interview you will be expected to read materials provided, usually in the form of a case study, and then be interviewed by the assessor who will ask you various questions relating to the topic provided. It is important to make sure you are aware of the values of the organisation as well as their history and how they deal with clients. The questions are likely to include broader topics so preparation is key.
