NGDP Numerical Reasoning Tests

The NGDP 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.

NGDP Verbal Reasoning Tests

This test comprises of a series of paragraphs which you will be required to read and then answer questions on. Your options in the NGDP Verbal Reasoning test will be True, False or Cannot Tell. This test will be assessing your analytical, comprehension, language understanding and grammar skills, amongst others. These are also timed so practicing within a time limit is a good idea. It is important to find a balance between reading the passage and answering the questions.

NGDP Situational Judgement Tests

The NGDP 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.

NGDP Group Exercise

You will be given a group task, usually involving a meeting or business scenario that you will be expected to provide solutions for within the team. You’ll be assessed on how you perform within the group, whether you show strong leadership skills or better support skills. You must be careful to strike a balance between dominating the group and being too passive.

NGDP Presentations

You will be expected to give a short presentation and a subject provided. You will be given time to prepare and will be allowed to take prompts in with you. This will be assessing your public speaking and presenting skills as well as how you perform under pressure during questions following your presentation. This may also be in the form of a case study.
