Now, let's try some practice questions to get a feel for how AON's online assessments work!
The Scales Numerical test uses the six tabs structure (for example: Balance / Share Summary / Stock / Operating Expenses / Profits / Product Sales). In order to answer each question, you need to find which tab is relevant to what is being asked, and then locate the answer. For example, if the statement is about expenses, the correct tab would be "Operating Expenses".
Let's go over how to solve a scales Numerical question:
Statement: In fiscal years 6-8, on average, the women's department was the most profitable of all Flying Colour's departments.
What is the truth value of the statement?
Correct!
Wrong
Wrong
Explanation:
First, let's decide which tab should contain the answer. Note that during the real test (and in the preparation pack) you will have to open the tab yourself.
The word "profitable" implies that the answer to this question is under the "Profits" tab. Once we open it, we see this table:
The table presents the varying share in profit for each of the different departments across a three-year period.
Look at the women's department's share in profit through FYs 6-8. In FYs 6 and 8, it had the largest share in profit, and in FY 7 its share was identical to that of the men's department. The women's department's share was never lower than any other department. Therefore, on average, this department was indeed the most profitable during those three years. The above statement is true.
Note: Another way to solve this question would be to calculate the actual average share in profit. We can see that the men's and women's departments were by far more profitable than any of the other departments, so we can focus on those two alone, calculate their averages, and then compare the results. However, this is likely to consume too much of your time and effort. When you need to compare a set of numbers, try to look at them before you decide on your plan of action. In this case, since the numbers of both departments are relatively close, and since there are only three years to consider, the comparison is relatively easy without any actual calculations.
Therefore, The answer is "True".
Complete the equation! Each digit may only be used once.
Explanation
According to BODMAS (Brackets, Orders, Division and Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction), We should start with multiplication. Then, we should think about the numbers that will best advance us towards the predefined result. For instance, 3*5 equals 15, which is close to 16. If we apply it to the equation:
x + 15 = 16
x = 1
Therefore, a possible solution is (1, 3, 5).
Other possible solutions: (4, 2, 6) , (8, 2, 4) , (6, 2, 5).
Scales Verbal uses the six tabs structure, like Scales Numerical.
For example: Organizational Structure / Values & Philosophy / Product Segments / Collaboration / Worldwide / Corporate Strategy
Statement: Arclight sells Tablets and laptop computers, among other products, within its Peripheral Devices Group.
Is the statement:
Wrong
Correct!
Wrong
Explanation
The word "products" indicates that the most relevant tab is "Product Segments". The phrase "Peripheral Devices Group" directs us to the "Peripheral Devices Group" section.
Under this tab, you find the following text:
Storage and Memory Group: The Storage and Memory Group Includes hard drives and disk-on-keys, as well as DVD devices and RAM drivers, among other products. Arclight has been the market leader of these products ever since it developed its trademarked DiskO, over fifteen years ago.
Computers Group: The Computers Group offers laptops and tablets, varying in size and features. Arclight is expected to expand this group to incorporate smartphone manufacturing within the coming year.
Peripheral Devices Group: In the group, Arclight offers computer and cellular phone accessories, such as mice, keyboards and batteries. The prices of these products vary, depending upon changing economic conditions, within a minimal and maximal price range set by Arclight products managers.
Limited Edition Products: Arclight has produced several limited edition products. These include the Arclight Boss Headphone and Arclight Phantom cameras. The company has discontinued production of these products, although they proved to be popular, in order to preserve their exclusivity.
Customer Service: There are several designated emails used to reply customer inquiries and complaints. In addition, the Arclight home page links to a detailed FAQ section, in which customers can receive further information.
According to the text, "In this group, Arclight offers computer and cellular phone accessories, such as mice, keyboards and batteries." In contrast, under the "Computer Group" section it states, "The Computers Group offers laptops and tablets […]." Therefore, tablet and laptop computers are part of the Computers Group, not the Peripheral Devices Group. The above statement is thus FALSE, and answer B is the correct one.
In Scales cls, you are shown several grids with characters and/or numbers on them. The grids are divided into Orange and Blue, according to a certain pattern. Your job is to find that pattern and apply it to determine the color of several other grids.
Observe the six upper diamonds and determine the color of each of the bottom ones, from left to right:
Wrong
Correct!
Wrong
Wrong
Explanation
The first step is to look for a pattern. If we can find a pattern for either color, we can deduce any diamond that shares that pattern is of that color and any that does not follow is the other color.
In this case, the pattern is that all tables with A's in all four corners are orange. so, we mark the first two diamonds as orange and the rest as blue.
Therefore, The answer (from left to right) is Orange, Orange, Blue, Blue.
Which object does not follow the rule?
Explanation
The objects form a numerical series: When moving from one object to the next, the number of stars increases by 1 and then, from the 5th object onwards, decreases by 1.
The only object that does not fit this rule is H, which contains 3 stars instead of 2.
Another way to look at the question is to say that the objects form a formal series: Each time a new star is added to (and from the 5th object onwards, an existing star is removed from) the pattern of stars that appeared in the previous object.
It is not necessary to discern both the numerical and formal aspects of the series to reach the solution.
Therefore the answer is H.
Choose the two grids that follow the rule.
Correct!
Wrong
Wrong
Wrong
Explanation
The rule is that each individual grid contains the same shape in the upper row as in the lower row (The upper grids have plus shapes, while the lower grids contain squares). In addition, the middle row is identical for both grids.
Grids 1 and 3 are the only grids that follow this rule. Therefore, The correct answer is 1,3.
What symbol should appear in place of the question mark?
Wrong
Wrong
Wrong
Correct!
Explanation
The shape missing from the third row is the X- therefore, the answer is X.
The Cut-e Test PrepPack has three gapChallenge practice tests with full, detailed explanations for each question.
This test measures your applied numeracy skills in the following areas:
The test lasts 16 minutes and consists of 20 questions - about 50 seconds for each question.
The total cost of an electric bill is $318.00. If 6% tax, which is added to the cost of the electricity, is included in the $318.00, how much did the electricity cost before tax?
Wrong
Wrong
Correct!
Wrong
Explanation
The bill was for $318 including a 6% tax. Notice that a 6% is added to the net cost - that is, the tax is not 6% of 318, but 318 is 106% of the electricity cost, meaning 318 is (106/100)= 1.06 times the net electricity cost.
In order to isolate electricity, we will divide each side by 1.06.
That means that
Electricity×1.06=318
318÷1.06=
(318÷106)×100=
3×100=
300
Thus, the answer is C.
Solving tip
Before trying to solve the question, it may be helpful to first look at the answer choices. Notice that according to answer A the price without tax ($337.08) is higher than the price with tax ($318). Since this cannot be, answer A can be eliminated.
According to answer B the price without tax ($19.02) is almost $300 less than the price with tax ($318). We know that 6% of 19.02 cannot be anywhere near 298.92 and we can therefore eliminate answer B.
The two remaining answer choices are very close together, $298.92 and $300. Instead of dividing 318/1.06, we can multiply one of these two answer choices by 1.06 and see if we get 318.
We will check 300, as it is a much more comfortable number to work with.
300×1.06
=(3×100)×(106÷100)
=3×106
=3×100+ 3×6
=300+18=
318
300 is, therefore, the right answer. Notice that if we had first multiplied 298.92×1.06 we would have gotten 316.8552. We could have then eliminated answer D and concluded answer C was the answer without checking it.

Several companies worldwide use Aon Cut-e Test to acquire the best candidates for employment as part of their recruitment process. Some of these include Procter & Gamble, Morgan Stanley, UBS, and Credit Suisse.
Almost all Aon Cut-e tests can be completed on smartphones and tablets. For the best performance, however, you should take the test on a PC or laptop, or mobile if you are taking a gamified test. Also, make sure you are using the latest browser version to prevent compatibility errors, and that your internet connection is stable.
Some Aon cut-e test allow a calculator – if using one is not allowed, you will be notified. In addition, having a pen and paper on hand is sometimes very useful- some tests have complex questions that require several stages to answer, and writing them down is critical for success.
During most AON cut-e tests, points are given for right answers and deducted for incorrect ones – this means that guessing is not as useful as it is for other tests.
In addition, each test generates a feedback report you can use to understand your results – the company for which you are taking the test should make this available to you.
Unfortunately, more specific information is currently unavailable – Cut-e Tests Solutions keeps its scoring methods a secret.
