## What Is the SHL Verify Calculation Test?

The SHL Calculation Test (also sometimes referred to as SHL Verify Calculation Test) is a short assessment designed to assess your ability to perform basic arithmetic calculations quickly and accurately.

The test contains 20 questions to be solved in 6 minutes. Unlike traditional tests, the time allotment in the SHL Calculation Test is given per question, not for the whole test.

You will have 18 seconds to answer each question.

• Each question has 5 answer options.
• You will not be able to go back or change your answers.
• A calculator is not allowed.

## SHL Calculation Test Sample Questions and Answers

All questions in the SHL Calculation Test are structured as an equation with one variable, marked ‘?’. You will need to choose the value of ‘?’ from the 5 answer options.

Here is a sample question you might encounter:

141 x 6 : ? = 94

### SHL Calculation Test Sample Question #2

32 x 17 – 56 + ? = 530

With 18 seconds per question (regardless of its level), you have to develop the ability to quickly recognize and employ the best shortcut technique to ace the SHL Calculation Test.

## How to Pass the SHL Calculation Test?

As you have seen in the previous two sample questions, the way to succeed on the SHL Verify Calculation Test is to develop quick and effective calculation shortcuts.

It is important to hone your calculation skills, but if you approach every drill as a straightforward, brute-force calculation, you will end up getting the harder questions wrong.

These harder questions are eventually what will get your score above the competition.

• Prepare for the actual test with questions simulating the SHL Calculation Test rules, formatting, time constraints, and difficulty level.
• Focus on shortcut techniques and fast-solving methods to help you cope with the challenging time constraints.
