About Sova's tests

Sova Assessment is a test developer from the UK who offers a combination of reasoning tests – abstract test, verbal test and numerical test, a personality test and a situational judgement test to assess candidates. Employers such as NAB and AusPost have been using SOVA for some of their assessments.

Sova's reasoning and logical tests

Sova Assessment has 3 types of aptitude or cognitive tests to measure your reasoning skills:

  • Sova verbal reasoning test –

    This test typically includes 9 questions. The questions are grouped into 3 sets of 3 test questions. Each set relates to a specific passage (or short paragraphs). Each test question includes a statement which you need to decide whether this statement is true, false or can’t say based on the content of the paragraph.

  • Sova numerical reasoning test  –

    This test typically includes 9  questions. The questions are grouped in to 3 sets of 3 test questions, similar to the verbal test. The question in each set require you to calculate ratios, percentages and other information based on graphs and tables.

  • Sova logical reasoning or abstract reasoning test –

    This test also typically includes 9 test questions. The test questions include a group of shapes. Your task is to find what is the next shape based on certain patterns and logical rules that you could identify among the shapes displayed. Logical rules or patterns can include rotation of shapes, changes based on a numerical series and colours.

Timer for reasoning and logical tests

  • Sova Assessment tests DO NOT HAVE A TIMER DISPLAYED during the reasoning test sections, as they claim not to have a time limitation.
  • However, Sova tests USE A TIMER to measure how long it took you to complete each test question and how long it took you to complete the entire section. These times are then used as a factor to calculate your total scores.
  • When completing each of the reasoning and logical tests sections you will be given breaks in between sections to read the instructions. These are times when the timer does not work.

Even though Sova’s tests do not have a timer running for the entire test, to properly prepare you for your Sova test we added a timer to our Sova practice tests. The timer will assist you to understand how quickly Sova expect you to work and to get used to work against a timer. The expectation for how quickly  you should complete each question depends on the type of test that you complete. You aim should be to complete a verbal test question within 30 seconds, a numerical question within 45 seconds and an abstract test question within 45 seconds.
