The ADF mathematical ability test measures your knowledge and ability in basic algebra, geometry and trigonometry problems. This will be on par with the mathematics you learn at year 11/12 level, including:

  • Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
  • Decimals
  • Factorisation
  • Fractions and percentages
  • Indices and exponential equations
  • Trigonometry and geometry
  • Circles (knowing arcs, chords etc.)
  • Triangles (Pythagoras, sin, cos, tan etc.)

The questions range from straightforward to quite difficult, and the use of a calculator during the test is not allowed.


Mathematical Ability Test Vs.General Ability Test

You may wonder what is the differences between those two ADF tests. The General ability test, as implied by its title, measures general cognitive abilities, which are not strictly dependent on previous high school knowledge. The Mathematical ability test, on the other hand, requires more advanced knowledge in subjects taught in years 11-12.

How can I prepare?
