This test measures your grasp on the natural sciences in general, and the concepts of motion, space, time, energy and force in particular. It consists of two software modules: a practice module, comprising 100 questions and their answers, and the actual test module.
The physics test features a practice section with over 100 questions, each with a detailed explanation of the answer. The test itself consists of 15 random, time-limited questions. A PDF file with all the important formulas to memorize will be provided.
Non-verbal reasoning involves the ability to understand and analyze visual information and solve problems using visual reasoning. You will be asked to identify relationships, similarities and differences between shapes and patterns, to recognize visual sequences and to remember relationships between objects.
The Non Verbal Reasoning (IQ) Test features a practice section with 20 questions, each with a detailed visual explanation of the answer. The test section features 3 different levels (easy, medium and hard). Each level will have a 20 random, time-limited questions. At the end of the test, a score will be calculated to show each individual how many correct and wrong answers they got.
The Number Series test consists of numerical sequences that follow a logical rule, based on elementary arithmetic. A sequence is given from which the rule is to be deduced. You are then asked to predict the next number in a given sequence, using that rule.
Number Series features a practice section with 20 questions, each with a detailed explanation of the answer. The test section features 2 different levels (medium and hard).
