Numerical Reasoning Tests (in conjunction with the Careers Service)

Image of multiple choice questionsMany jobs require applicants to undertake numerical reasoning tests as part of the application process. We are developing a set of resources to help you tackle these. It will include an online resource to help you understand what is involved, worksheets of example questions and practice questions for a variety of question types and at different levels. 

If you would like to discuss numerical reasoning tests with one of our advisors, why not book a 1-1 session where you can explore the question types and focus on particular areas that may need attention. We're here to help. 

In addition, if you are feeling anxious about doing maths and undertaking a numerical reasoning test, why not have a look at our Maths Anxiety page or work through our online maths anxiety resource. It's designed to help participants understand their maths anxiety and develop strategies to deal with it.
