WHAT IS ABSTRACT REASONING?

Abstract reasoning requires an ability to identify patterns amongst different abstract shapes where irrelevant and distracting material is often present. The presence of irrelevant or distracting material or information can sometimes lead to incorrect conclusions.

Abstract tests therefore measure a candidate’s ability to change track, critically evaluate and generate hypotheses and to query judgements as they progress through the test.

HOW LONG ARE THE TESTS?

The time that you will be provided to sit the abstract test will very much depend on the role you are applying for. However, to give you an idea, the tests that form part of the UK clinical aptitude test last for a maximum of 14 minutes, during which time the candidate has to answer 55 questions. The tests are designed so that it is very difficult to complete them. Whilst the assessor or test centre are looking for you to complete as many test questions as possible, they are also looking for you to get the questions you have answered, correct.

Therefore, during your preparation you must concentrate on speed as well as accuracy.

ABSTRACT REASONING TOP TIPS

How2Become Verbal Reasoning Tip 1

TOP TIP 1

Find out the type(s) of questions you will be required to undertake. You should also take steps to find out if the tests will be timed and also whether or not they will be ‘multiple-choice’ questions. If the tests that you will be required to undertake are timed and of multiple-choice in nature, then we strongly advise that you practice this type of test question.

TOP TIP 2

Variety is the key to success. Attempt a variety of different test questions, such as psychometric tests, numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning, spatial reasoning, fault analysis and mechanical reasoning etc. This will undoubtedly improve your overall ability to pass the test that you are required to undertake.

TOP TIP 3

Confidence is an important part of test preparation. Have you ever sat a timed test and your mind goes blank? This is because your mind is focused on negative thoughts and your belief that you will fail the test. If you practice plenty of test questions under timed conditions then your confidence will grow.

TOP TIP 4

Aim for SPEED as well as ACCURACY. Many test centres want to see how quickly you can work, but they also want to see how accurate your work is, too. Therefore, when tackling the tests you must work as quickly as you can without sacrificing accuracy.

Sample Abstract Reasoning Questions

To help you get a better understanding of what an abstract reasoning test involves, let’s take a quick look at a few sample questions.

FREE | 2 Questions
Abstract Reasoning Practice Questions

ABSTRACT REASONING QUESTION 01

Which answer figure comes next in the sequence? 

ABSTRACT REASONING QUESTION 02

Determine whether the test shapes belong to Set A, Set B or Neither.

ANSWERS

ABSTRACT REASONING QUESTION 01

D

As the sequence progresses the number of dots alternates in opposite sections of the rectangle. For example, the top of the first rectangle has 4 black dots and the bottom of the second rectangle has 2 black dots. The top of the third rectangle has 4 black dots and the bottom of the fourth has 2 black dots and so on. Conversely, the number of black dots in the bottom of the first rectangle has 5 black dots and the top of the second rectangle has 3 black dots and so on. Therefore, the correct answer is D.

ABSTRACT REASONING QUESTION 02

Test shape 1 does not belong to neither Set as it contains a chequered square and a white circle. You will notice that neither Set A nor Set B contain both a chequered square and a white circle. In order for test shape 1 to belong to Set A the white circle would have to change to different shape, such as a black circle. In order for test shape 1 to belong to Set B, the chequered square and white square would both have to be replaced by different shapes, such as an arrow or white triangle.

Test shape 2 contains a chequered square which is indication that the shape may belong to Set A. Upon further investigation the other symbols in the box you can see that it does not contain a white circle, something which is prominent in every square of Set B. Therefore, test shape two does in fact belong to Set A.

Test shape three has white circle and no chequered square. Therefore, the correct answer is that test shape three belongs to Set B.
