## WHAT ARE QUANTITATIVE REASONING TESTS?

Quantitative Reasoning tests assess a candidate’s ability to problem solve using numerical skills. Therefore a candidate is expected to be confident with numbers to a good GCSE standard. However, a higher ability to problem solve is more beneficial than numerical facility.

The main purpose of Quantitative Reasoning tests are to assess students and discover whether or not they have the necessary skills for understanding the the potential types of quantitative arguments that they may have in their professional career.

## WHERE ARE QUANTITATIVE REASONING TESTS USED FOR?

Quantitative Reasoning is a skill that has practical applications and is slightly different to mathematics.

For example, a mathematician will often be using the language of mathematics, which is often a language of it’s own. However an everyday person can apply Quantitative Reasoning in an everyday language though logic on data interpretation.

Job roles in the medical profession such as dentists or doctors will often find themselves needing to analyse data and apply it in a practical level.

This is why Quantitative Reasoning tests are a big part of the UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT). The purpose of the UKCAT obtain a greater fairness in entering medicine and dentistry. In this aspect, candidates will be tested on his or her ability to solve numerical problems. You will be given 24 minutes to go through 9 tables, graphs, charts as information and then answer 36 questions within the range.

Many universities and colleges have entrance and placement tests based on Quantitative Reasoning such as the University of Kent or Columbia University.

## QUANTITATIVE REASONING TOP TIPS

Quantitative Reasoning tests are used more commonly during technical assessments such as roles within the medical profession and roles where a high degree of problem-solving capability is required. The test assesses your ability to use numerical skills in order to accurately solve problems. Those sitting the test will normally be familiar with numbers to a good standard at GCSE level.

During many quantitative reasoning tests candidates are permitted to use a calculator. More often than not the calculator will either be supplied by the test administrators or an online version will be supplied. It is therefore very important that you confirm with the test administrator the type of calculator that will be supplied prior to the test so that you can familiarise yourself with it.

Below are some more tips you should consider:

### TOP TIP 1

During the quantitative reasoning test you should 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.

### TOP TIP 2

Attempt a variety of different test questions during your preparation under timed conditions. Examples of tests you should try include, IQ and psychometric tests, numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning, fault analysis, abstract reasoning, spatial reasoning and mechanical reasoning etc. This will undoubtedly improve your overall ability to pass the test that you are required to undertake and it will also be great practice for you to work under timed conditions.

### TOP TIP 3

It is important that, before you sit your test, you 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’ based questions.

QUANTITATIVE REASONING QUESTION 01

Here is some information about the costs of purchasing land. Prime farmland is £7,500 per acre. Building land is £1.1 million per hectare.

1 hectare = 10,000 m2 = 2.47 acres

A plot of building land is square. The length of one side of the plot is 80m.

Which one of the amounts below is closest in value to the cost of buying the plot?

A. £704,000
B. £568,000
C. £850,000
D. £902,000
E. £400,000

A square field, S, has an area greater than 3,600 m². Its length is increased by 10 m and its width decreased by 10 m to give a rectangular field, R. Which one of the following is true?

A. Area S > area R and perimeter S = perimeter R

B. Area S = area R and perimeter S = perimeter R

C. Area S = area R and perimeter S < perimeter R

D. Area S < area R and perimeter S < perimeter R

E. Area S < area R and perimeter S < perimeter R

Government spending on “Benefit services” and “Work and Pensions services” was 159 billion pounds and 74 billion respectively for the year 2011-2012. In the same year, Government spending on “Heath Services” was 33.33% of the spending on “benefit services”, and the spending on “Benefit services”, “Work and Pensions services” and “Health services” constituted of 50% of the total spending by the Government. What was the Government’s approximate total spending for the year 2011-2012?

A. 480 billion pounds
B. 758 billion pounds
C. 572 billion pounds
D. 625 billion pounds
E. 985 billion pounds

A. £704,000

• 80 × 80 = 6,400 m²
• 6,400 ÷ 10,000 = 0.64 hectares
• 0.64 × 1,100,000 = £704,000

A. Area S > area R and perimeter S = perimeter R

• If the area is approximately 3,600 m², the square root of that would be 60 m (square field S).
• If the length is increased by 10 m and its width decreased by 10 m to give a rectangular field R, it will make field R 70 m by 50 m.
• Therefore the area of S will be larger (>) than area R.
• The perimeters of both field would still be the same, so therefore perimeter S = perimeter R

C. 573 billion pounds

• Benefit Services = £159 billion
• Work and Pension Services = £74 billion
• Health Services = £53 billion
• (£159 + £74 + £53) × 2 = £572
