What is Non- Verbal Reasoning?
Non-verbal reasoning (NVR) tests require you to recognise similarities, analogies and patterns in unfamiliar designs. They involve the ability to reason with material that has not been seen before, without the need for prior knowledge or study. They are thought to have no cultural bias and thus provide a more appropriate measure of general intelligence, compared with verbal reasoning tests, for whom English is a second language.
Non-verbal reasoning tests are used to assess a person’s ability to spot patterns and identify errors or inconsistencies.
