The ADF general ability test consists of several different types of numerical, verbal and abstract reasoning questions. The questions range from straightforward to quite difficult, and the use of a calculator or a dictionary during the test is not allowed.

Since the time is limited and some of the questions are quite difficult, the test can be challenging to many candidates. Encountering the questions and practising the concepts can enhance your performance significantly and make your dream come true.


Numerical Reasoning

You will be required to use basic arithmetic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) in order to solve different problems (distance, work rate etc.) and number series.
