Abstract reasoning or Diagrammatic Reasoning is a category of the aptitude test that many people struggle with. It requires an abstract way of thinking that doesn’t come naturally to everybody. Therefore it is important to practice this part of the assessment a lot before you start your final assessment.
We have worked out two sample exercises to get you started, it might be useful to review these before you start practicing.
We recommend that you first take a free practice test to see what kinds of questions occur and how to solve them.
There are different types of patterns that are often used for abstract reasoning. By studying the explanations and example exercises of the different patterns, you will recognise the patterns more easily, work faster and make fewer mistakes.
We recommend doing at least 3 exercise sets with time pressure. At the end of each exercise set, we indicate how your score relates to the norm group and whether you need to work faster or more accurately to get the highest possible score on your assessment. This way you know exactly when you are optimally prepared.
