Strengths Portal 2

Verbal Reasoning Test is a timed test. Your speed, as well as your accuracy, will be measured. You will be presented with a series of questions that ask you to focus on grammar and pronunciation, as well as your comprehension of written material.

The Numerical test involves 12 questions and is set within a time recorded rather than the time-tested environment. You should take as long as you need to respond to the questions although note that your score will reflect both your accuracy and time taken.

All you have to do is a quick recap of basic GCSE calculations, such as ratios, percentages and reading data off charts. What makes EY’s numerical reasoning test difficult is not the knowledge tested, but how you reason with the information presented in the time limit under pressure involved. You will only have less than a minute to answer each question, so the best way to ensure that you do your utmost best is by practising numerical reasoning test questions; this way, you will familiarise yourself with typical questions and become more comfortable which will help to increase your confidence.

Tip: Remember that it is the stress and time pressure that is challenging – not the lack of knowledge! You need to learn to manage these, and the best way by far to achieve this is by practising tests in a safe environment before your actual test.
