### Want to get a feel for the psychometric assessment? Have a go at these practice questions

They are designed to help you prepare for the real psychometric assessment. The questions are broken down into three sections that cover your verbal, numerical, and abstract reasoning:

**Verbal reasoning** tests your ability to perform reasoning tasks involving the use of language. Questions range from defining words and providing synonyms, through to identifying the underlying meanings of common words and phrases.

**Numerical reasoning **tests your ability to perform reasoning tasks involving the use of algebra and geometry as well as your ability to understand and interpret numerical information presented in a number of forms (tables, diagrams, graphs). Questions range from simple operations in addition, subtraction, multiplication or division to more specialist questions about number sequences and applied mathematical questions mirroring on-the-job situations.

**Abstract reasoning** tests your ability to identify patterns presented in diagrammatic form and your ability to innovate and learn new information. Note that these practice questions are not timed, and do not reflect the level of difficulty of the actual test. When completing the practice questions, consider the logic you applied to work out the answer. This will help you to understand the kinds of thinking you may need to use on testing day.
