## WHAT ARE NUMERICAL REASONING TESTS?

Whichever job you apply for it is highly likely that you will be required to sit a numerical reasoning test of some sort. Whether you are applying to become a firefighter or police officer in the public sector, or if you want to become an investment banker, you will need to gain sufficient scores during a numeracy test.

• Numerical reasoning tests are designed to assess your ability to carry out calculations with numbers that are similar to the types of tasks you will need to carry out in the role you are applying for.
• For example, as a firefighter you would be required to carry out calculations based on breathing apparatus timings and hose length calculations.
• As a paramedic you might have to use calculations to determine the quantity of drugs you need to administer whilst as a retail clerk or sales assistant you might have to carry out basic arithmetic such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
• Whatever standard of test you are required to undertake the most effective way to prepare is to carry out plenty of sample test questions that are similar to the ones you will come across during the real test.

## PREPARATION, PRACTICE, AND PERSEVERANCE!

Amidst the education system, children will have to partake in several assessments in which to monitor their progress.

Here at How2become, we believe the three KEY things to remember in regards to SATs and examinations is Preparation, Practice, and Perseverance!

By preparing for every eventuality in which you will encounter, will allow you to be confident enough to tackle these assessments head on; the only way this can be achieved is through practice and persevering!

The more practice you encounter, the better you will score! Persevering through practice papers and sample questions will guarantee to improve your knowledge and ability, and, therefore, will prepare you for your assessment!

## NUMERICAL REASONING TOP TIPS

### TOP TIP 1

Before you attend the test you need to find out whether or not you will be permitted to use a calculator.

• If you are not permitted to use a calculator then the chances are the numerical test questions will be of general basic standard such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
• When practising under these restrictions you should not use a calculator. However, the vast majority of test administrators will permit you to write down your workings out during the test.
• If this is the case remember to keep your workings out neat and tidy as some assessors will check over these to see what calculations you have been using to reach your answers.

If it transpires that you are permitted to use a calculator during the real test you should first of all ask whether it is permissible for you to take in your own calculator. If this is the case you need to be fully conversant with how your calculator functions. We have been aware that some people have attended a numerical reasoning test with their own calculator but they struggle to understand how it works.

### TOP TIP 2

Many numerical reasoning tests will be of multiple-choice in nature, just like the sample questions we provided you above.

If this is the case you should try as much as possible to avoid wild guessing. More and more test administrators are now deducting marks for incorrect answers so please be careful of this, especially when you are running out of time.

### TOP TIP 3

The final tip is in relation to completing the test that you are sitting. It is a common misconception that you MUST complete or finish the numerical reasoning test.

Unless instructed otherwise you should work quickly and accurately through the test questions. However, if you notice that you are running out of time, do not panic. The vast majority of numerical reasoning tests are design not to be finished. The key here is to not sacrifice speed for accuracy.
