About

As with any leading assessment company, Cubiks' verbal tests differ according to the industries and job profiles of its clients. Below, we will briefly outline these tests and refer you to our level-specific practice resources.


Cubiks Reasoning for Business Verbal Reasoning Test

This test is comprised of reading comprehension tasks, in which you are presented with a passage followed by three questions. Usually, one question asks you to choose the best option that summarises the passage, one asks about assumptions in the passage, and one focuses on details in the passage.

  • Test duration: 25 minutes
  • Number of items: 36

Please note that Cubiks has recently switched from utilising Reasoning for Business tests to the Cubiks Logiks suite. These tests are available on our Logiks page. Unless instructed by your potential employer otherwise, you should prepare for Cubiks Logiks.


Other Verbal Ability Tests

Cubiks also offers cognitive ability tests, in which the verbal section comprises only a part of the entire test. Grammar, English proficiency, and basic reasoning skills are the main topics covered in the verbal section of the test. For example, Cubiks' problem solving and Logiks tests include the following question types:

  • Verbal analogies – You are presented with statements and asked whether there is a true analogy, a false one, or neither.
  • Pairs of concepts – Two words are provided, and the candidate must decide whether they have the same meaning or not.
  • Deviation from category – You are presented with five different words, and you must choose the odd one out.
  • Antonyms/synonyms – Given five different words, you must select the word that is the opposite or similar in meaning to the subject word.

Cubiks Verbal Test Tips

Here are some valuable verbal test-taking tips:

  • Verbal ability, and your reading comprehension, can be improved through practice. Simply taking practice tests and gaining exposure to the types of questions on the real assessments can relax you and help improve your confidence.
  • The key elements to practise for when preparing for a verbal reasoning test are accuracy in answering questions, the speed at which you answer (most verbal reasoning tests are time limited), and understanding the passage and how to answer the questions.
  • Read the entire question, and then read the text.
  • Answers are found within the text. You don't need prior knowledge. 
  • Although the test is more than likely going to be timed, just try to do your best.
