Sova Assessment’s reasoning and logical tests

Sova Assessment has 3 sections of tests to measure your reasoning skills:

  • Reasoning test questions – this section typically includes 9 test questions. The questions are grouped into 2 sets of 3-4 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.
  • Numerical reasoning test questions – this section typically includes 9 test questions. The questions are grouped in to 2 sets of 3-4 test questions, similar to the verbal section. The question in each set require you to calculate variables based on information provided in graphs and tables.
  • Logical reasoning or Abstract reasoning test questions – this section also typically includes 9 test questions. The test questions include rotation of shapes and groups of shapes

Timer for reasoning and logical tests

  • Sova Assessment will NOT have a timer displayed during the reasoning test sections, as they claim not to have a time limitation.
  • However, Sova Assessment USES 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.
