National Grid Numerical Reasoning

The National Grid Numerical Reasoning test comprises of a series of questions relating to graphs, percentages and tables whereby you will be asked to analyse data and chose from a set of multiple choice answers. This type of tests is used to measure your numerical ability as well as graph and data interpretation. There is usually between 20 and 25 questions to answer in timed conditions and so it is highly advisable to practice as much as possible.

The National Grid Verbal Reasoning test comprises of a series of paragraphs which you will be required to read and then answer questions on. Your options will be True, False or Cannot Tell.

It is important to find a balance between reading the passage and answering the questions.

National Grid Situational Judgement

The National Grid Situational Judgement test presents you with a series of challenging scenarios that one might encounter in the workplace and then a number of possible responses to the scenario. You then chose which one you feel is the best way to describe how you would react. As with the rest of the tests you will be timed and so it is important that you read the information properly. It is important to know the company values to ensure your answers are best matched with theirs.
