The Revelian cognitive ability test is a timed multiple-choice test that measures your general cognitive ability.
The test includes 51 questions to be answered within a time limit of 20 minutes.
In the Revelian cognitive ability test, there are no penalties for wrong guesses, so making calculated guesses are encouraged rather than skipping some questions.
It is possible to go back and forward through the questions. It is, therefore, a good idea to answer the easy questions first and then go back to finish the more difficult ones.
Calculators are not allowed in the test.
The test includes questions concerning verbal reasoning, abstract reasoning, and numerical reasoning. These categories are explained in detail below:
The abstract reasoning questions in the RCAT will assesses your ability to solve conceptual problems by identifying relationships and analyzing patterns.
You will be presented with 5 – 6 graphical elements. You have to identify patterns in these elements in order to find the one or two elements that are different from the rest.
The correct answer is item A and D. In all other items, the two circles are located within the star.
Verbal reasoning questions assess your ability to accurately read and comprehend English. You will be required to find relationships between words, identify synonyms and antonyms, and draw logical conclusions from given statements.
These four types of verbal questions can be found in the RCAT:
Odd word out
You are given a list of words and have to find one or two words that do not belong with the rest.
You must identify the relationship between the first pair of words in order to find the missing word in the second pair.
Synonyms and Antonyms
These questions are used to determine the extent of your vocabulary. You are given two words and you must decide if they are synonyms, antonyms or neither.
Deductive reasoning is the process of reasoning using one or more statements to reach a logically certain conclusion.
You will be presented with a list of (usually 5) statements. You are now required to find the two statements that together will allow you to reach a certain conclusion.
Numerical reasoning questions assess your ability to understand numerical relationships and concepts, and your ability to reason using numbers.
These three types of numerical questions can be found in the RCAT:
You will be presented with a series of numbers with one number missing. You need to find the missing number.
You will be presented with a 3 x 3 matrix with numbers. You have to find the number that is represented by a question mark.
