WHAT’S INCLUDED

CAT4 is used extensively by school examiners, educational regulators, recruitment agencies as well as companies as part of their interviews. Our service comprises teaching of these four core CAT4 subjects, i.e. Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Spatial Reasoning.

VERBAL REASONING (VR)

Verbal Reasoning is the ability to comprehend and reason using concepts expressed through words. A Verbal Reasoning test is a form of aptitude test used to find out how well a student can assess verbal logic, and how successfully they can extract the correct meaning from complex written information.

LOGICAL OR NON-VERBAL REASONING (NVR)

Non-Verbal Reasoning involves the ability to understand and analyze visual information and solve problems using visual reasoning, for e.g., similarities and differences between shapes/patterns, recognizing visual sequences and relationships between objects etc. It enables students to analyze and solve complex problems without relying upon or being limited by language skills.

These tests don’t require reading skills and hence, they provide insights into the abilities of those who have problems with reading and thinking verbally, those who may lack motivation, those whose native language isn’t English and those with specific learning difficulties.

QUANTITATIVE OR MATHEMATICAL REASONING

Quantitative Reasoning is the use of logic, numbers and mathematical concepts to solve mathematical problems as well as analyze data presented in a variety of ways, such as in tabular or graphical form. The problems will be in the form of Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs). They cover a variety of subjects such as algebra, geometry and word problems.

SPATIAL REASONING

Spatial reasoning tests an individual’s ability to work on three-dimensional objects and predicts the ability to work with complex plans. It involves mentally rotating two-dimensional representations of three-dimensional shapes. While this is used in engineering settings, architecture and interior design for adults, it reflects on a child’s IQ and aptitude skills when tested for in CAT4.
