What is Non-verbal Reasoning?
Have you seen the new BOFA video yet?
All comments appreciated!
Non-verbal reasoning (NVR) tests require recognition of similarities, analogies and patterns in unfamiliar designs. Sometimes referred to as a ‘fluid-general intelligence’ test, which involves the ability to reason with novel material, without the need to draw on learned knowledge. They have been described as ‘culture fair’ and thus provide a more appropriate measure of general intelligence, compared with verbal reasoning tests, for test takers not fluent in the language being used.
Non-verbal reasoning tests are used to assess a person’s ability to spot patterns and identify errors or inconsistencies.
You can try out the six main types of questions on the demo page following the link below. The BOFA tests include all the different types of questions used, but they may vary slightly from the questions you would actually get in your non-verbal reasoning exam.
There are 6 key different types of non-verbal reasoning questions with several spin offs. As long as you are aware of the concept of non-verbal reasoning questioning and you have practiced answering NVR questions, as they are known, then they shouldn’t present you with too many difficulties.
Practice definitely makes perfect, when it comes to NVR questions.
These questions are just as appropriate whether you are sitting an 11 plus or an employer selection test.
