Introduction
Introduction | 3
The book comprises ten papers, each containing 80 questions, encompassing the major types of problems found in all verbal reasoning papers. It is not possible to give a ‘pass’ mark, since a number of variables are always present; however, experience has demonstrated that scores of around 65 out of 80 (80%) will indicate a level required by the vast majority of secondary schools.
It is worth emphasizing that the papers vary in degree of difficulty and that the composition of the papers differs slightly. For example, one might include more vocabulary questions than other papers favouring a candidate with a greater ability in English. Another might include a greater mathematical content favouring a candidate with greater ability in mathematics. Hence, it is expected that there will be a variation in the scores achieved.
The key to success on all papers, however, is to complete the paper. Each paper should be allocated 50 minutes. An essential skill in mastering verbal reasoning tests is the ability to work systematically against the clock. It is important to realise from the outset that the crucial determinant in gaining success is the number of questions answered correctly. That is, in a paper comprising 100 questions, a score of 79 correctly answered questions out of 80 completed is a poorer result than a score of 80 correctly answered out of 100 completed questions. Since time is critical, a candidate must be familiar with the most common questions and must possess a strategy on how best to approach each type.
