Verbal Reasoning Tests

Verbal reasoning tests assess your understanding and comprehension skills. You will be presented with a short passage of text which you’ll be required to interpret before answering questions on. These are typically in the ‘True, False, Cannot Say’ multiple choice format, although there are a range of alternatives too.

Introducing verbal reasoning tests

Verbal reasoning is the ability to reason using concepts wrapped in words. It verifies your level of understanding and comprehension, as well as your dexterity when it comes to filtering out key information from a bulk of text. In the times of the information overload – a good level of literacy and verbal logic are among the most desired employability skills.

There are a range of formats employed in verbal reasoning tests. The most common of these is the ‘true, false and cannot say’ format which requires you to decide which is the most applicable based on a small passage of text.

Regardless, of the format, the same principles hold true. You will need to read text, interpret information and decide on the most logical conclusion. It’s important to remember that no previous knowledge of the passage topic is required so just make your decisions based on the information you’re given.

Although, you might feel confident in your verbal powers, exposing yourself with these tests prior to the day will help. Practicing won’t hurt but a lack of familiarity definitely might.

Verbal reasoning tests check if you can recognize the difference between facts and inferences, and above all assess your comprehension and logic skills.

The ability to extract a correct meaning from complex information is one of the key requirements to perform well in your job. To do it quickly is another. Thus, the growing number of employers are using verbal reasoning tests to ensure the right candidates have strong reasoning skills in place before they plunge into a new job.

You should make decisions based on the information provided, not your inner expert. The objective of verbal reasoning tests is to reveal your skills, not check your knowledge!

If it’s neither true or false, it can be “ hard to say” – in everyday life, we all strive to find black and white answers to most troubling questions, but that might not be the right approach. By doing these tests, we hope you will get rid of this habit, and learn how to answer correctly to the false and cannot say answers which many find the most problematic.
