Reasoning Test

Reasoning Test helps you to evaluate the cognitive abilities required for jobs that demand good analytical skills. It is particularly useful for roles in a complex work environment.

There is a correlation between performance and IQ. However, other factors, such as personality, interests, and emotional intelligence, should also be considered for a more comprehensive evaluation of an individual’s potential.

Reasoning Test is available in either a full version or a shorter version, R20, which is suitable for non-graduates.


Recruiting individuals with strong intellectual abilities leads to better returns on investment for your organisation. Employees with good intellect are better equipped to learn job-related skills quickly and adapt well to the environment, thereby improving their work performance.

This assessment enables you to appreciate the reasoning and learning style of a candidate and their potential to succeed in a particular role.

Selection for colleges/business schools

Research has found that cognitive assessments may be able to predict significant learning abilities.

Reasoning Test gives you a clear picture of a student’s aptitude and learning ability, which in turn helps in selecting candidates who will be a good fit for the institution.

People with higher intellectual abilities tend to respond better to academic training and, in all environments, are able to find resources which enable them to succeed quicker.

Internal Mobility

An employee's ability to develop new skills, face new challenges, and learn from training is a strong predictor of their future performance.

Evaluating your employees' reasoning abilities allows you to predict which skills they will be most likely to excel in and, therefore, it will confirm their potential to succeed in future tasks and projects.
