Are you applying for a position that requires you to take the Alva Logic Test or/and the Alva Personality Test?
This Alva Labs Logic Test represents one of the most challenging and complex logical reasoning tests available today. As the Alva test is an adaptive test, the questions in it are not only extremely difficult but if you manage to answer the questions correctly, expect them to become even more challenging.

The Alva Labs Logic Test is a 40-minute, 20-question logical reasoning test (aka abstract reasoning test) based on matrices. The test is designed to assess your ability to recognize patterns, draw conclusions, and analyse complex visual data.
The test is similar to other logical reasoning tests, such as Raven’s Progressive Matrices Test (RPM) and Matrigma, but has several important differences.
Here are several quick facts about the Alva Labs Logic Test:
Further below we discuss the test in more detail, including sample questions and answers.

All questions on the Alva Labs Logic Test follow the same format:

In this question the figures consist of a varying number of lines around a circle. Although the number of lines increases by one in each figure, there are two different patterns in this question: (1) from left to right and (2) from top to bottom.
In each row, from left to right, a line is added on the left side of the shape in every movement. Hence, we can deduce the pattern is a progression counter-clockwise.
Down the columns from top to bottom, a line is added to each figure on the right side, clockwise. Hence, we can deduce the pattern is a progression clockwise.
The “Alva Guide“ included in the preparation pack contains more information regarding the “progression clockwise/counter-clockwise” pattern.
Followed by the two patterns, the number of lines in the missing figure must increase by one from the figure above it and the figure on its left.
Therefore, the missing figure must contain five lines, meaning that the only possible choice is answer 6.

In this question there are four different kinds of shapes: a rectangle, a heart, a star, and an X.
Looking at the rows, from left to right, we notice each figure contains a different small shape inside of a bigger shape. In each row we have one of each: a star, an X, or one without a small shape, when the small shapes change in encirclement movement pattern:
Therefore, according to the last row the missing figure must contain a small star in the middle of the figure.
When looking at the columns from top to bottom, each column contains a heart, a rectangle, and a third shape combining both - a heart inside a rectangle.
From this construction pattern, we can deduce that the missing figure must contain a combination of the two shapes in the figures above it, a heart inside a rectangle.

In this question, the pattern is as follows:
In each row and column, the third figure is constructed from the other two figures.
Thus, the third figure is the result of this complex construction of the two first figures, using subtraction and addition depending on the circles sides.
For example, the first figure in the first row contains one circle above the line, and the second figure contains one circle on the same side as well.
Thus, the third figure will be a complex construction of these two, having an addition between them: 1+1=2, meaning two circles. Note that the circles must stay at the side of their majority, hence, above the diagonal line.
When looking at the second row, the first figure contains one circle above the line and the second figure contains three circles on the opposite side (under the diagonal line).
Therefore, the third figure will be a complex construction of subtraction between these two, having: 3-1=2. Meaning two circles below the diagonal line, where the majority is.
The missing shape should therefore include the complex construction of the two figures above it, having two circles above the line and two circles under the line, which means subtraction between those two. The result is zero circles (2-2=0).
Same for the row, having again two circles above the line and two circles below the line, which results in zero circles due to the subtraction. Following this pattern for both columns and rows, the missing figure must have no circles at all. The option that matched these patterns is option 5.
Notice the specific position of the circles in their section of the figure is irrelevant for this question pattern, and only provides a distraction.
After reading the test instructions and solving two very basic sample questions, you will begin the Alva test.
The Alva Logic Test is scored on a 1-10 scale. Your score will be compared to the working population in general and will be given a percentile range, given below.
The average Alva Labs Logic Test score is 5.5/10.
Score (1-10) | Percentile Range | Interpretation |
1-2 | 1-6 | Below average |
3-4 | 7-30 | Slightly below average |
5-6 | 31-69 | Average |
7-8 | 70-93 | Slightly above average |
9-10 | 94-99 | Above average |

Remember that the AlvaLabs test is adaptive – so your test score depends not only on the number of correct answers but also on the difficulty of the questions.
Oftentimes, you will be requested to complete the Alva Personality Test after your Alva Labs Logic Test.
