Guide to Differentiation
In a numerical reasoning test, you are required to answer questions by using facts and figures presented in tables and graphs. In each question you are usually given a number of options to choose from. One, and only one, of the options is correct in each case. If necessary, use a rough sheet of paper and/or a calculator. However, it is important to note that the use of a calculator may not be permitted in all tests. The following examples test your ability to make sense of numerical information and will help you understand the skills required. There are lots of examples and practice tests online. These are just a taster!
This resource utilises random question generators whereby the variables change upon each visit or when you refresh the webpage. You are required to input your answer rather than select from a multiple choice. Click here to access
