What is Revelian?

Revelian is an Australian pre-employment assessment company. It has tests in 3 major categories:
1) Cognitive ability tests 2) Personality tests and 3) Gamified test.

Each of these test families demands unique preparation and involve entirely different information.

The only exception to this is the 3 reasoning tests, Numerical, Verbal and Abstract, that are all facets of psychometric testing and are used complimentary each one with the others to give a complete assessment of your cognitive abilities.

Revelian's most popular psychometric test - the Revelian Cognitive Ability Tests (see below) is a mix of all 3 facets in a randomized order. Most employers choose this test as part of their application process because it supplies them with a well-rounded assessment of your skill level.

To start preparing for your test it's important to know which exact test you will be facing. I have dedicated a section for each test type in each test family, to help you focus on what you really need.

To start you off on your test preparation, our psychometric team has assembled 5 free tests as well as a full section with question examples, complete with answers, a detailed walk-through and solving tips. 

If at some point you decide to access our full practice tests packs for Revelian, note that we only have tailored PrepPacks™ for Revelian reasoning tests and a generic offering for their personality tests.

cognitive ability tests by revelian

1) Revelian Reasoning Tests

Reasoning tests (also known as cognitive ability tests) are what most job candidates go through during pre-employment assessments by Revelian. People usually find this type of test most difficult.

There are 4 tests in this category, each having its own time limit and question count:

1) Cognitive Ability Test

2) Numerical Reasoning

3) Verbal Reasoning

4) Abstract Reasoning

Revelian Reasoning tests gradually move up in question difficulty level. This means that you should take special care to get the earlier questions right since all questions are likely waited the same. 

There is no penalty for a wrong answer so make an educated guess whenever you can and don't delay. You should strive to answer as many questions as possible; this includes quickly guessing the remaining questions when your time is about to run out. 

Most people cannot complete all questions in the given time-frame so don't be hard on yourself. Instead, use this knowledge and practise a lot; specifically hone your guessing strategy to gain the upper-hand over your competition.


Let's Walk-Through Some Sample Questions for Deeper Insights

To get you oriented with Revelian test material our psychometric experts bring you some sample questions and answers solving walk-through - intended to shed as much light on your coming challenge as we possibly can in just a few minutes practice.

You get to try, hands-on, 2 questions for each test type: first an easy one, then a hard one.

In reality, each type of test has a variety of question types so we included here a selection of the most prominent ones. For a more extensive walk-through see our Free RCAT page.

Now grab a pen and paper and drill down into each of the 4 tabs below to begin.


Ready? Let's start.

revelian cognitive ability

51 questions

20 min

No penalty for wrong answers

In the RCAT section of the test, you will be given 20 minutes to complete 51 verbal, numerical and abstract reasoning questions.

This test measures your critical thinking and reasoning abilities by relaying your ability to acquire, organise, retain and apply information. The subject matter is made-up of common questions that overlap various professions.

If you're about to do this test you should definitely check out our free guide for revelian cognitive ability test, that covers basic to advanced aspects of the test as well as sample questions with an illuminating walk-through by our experts.

 revelian numerical reasoning

 25 questions

 12 min

 No penalty for wrong answers

The goal of this test is to measure how well you can analyse and solve numerical problems. This test is mainly used for numerical-based professions. The test consists of 25 questions within a 12-minute window.

Many Revelian questions are set in number series format. Typically the tests are presented in numerical lines or a matrix (a 3 by 3 table).

Oftentimes, people find that the latter is the preferred format because they are able to calculate numbers in 2 separate ways: 1) vertically and 2) horizontally. Thus, you can easily check your work, resulting in fewer errors.

Let's start practising a few numerical sample questions:


Question 1: Easy

Billy has been driving for 4 hours. If Billy has driven 140 km, what has Billy’s average driving speed been?

________ km/h


✔️ The correct answer is 35 km/h.

Average Speed = Distance / Time.

So, Average Speed = 140km / 4h = 35 km/h.

Therefore, the correct answer is 35 km/h.


Question 2: Hard

What is the missing number that should take the place of the question mark?


10  |  19  |  33  |  52  |  ?  |  105


✔️ The correct answer is 76.

10 + 9 = 19 →

19 + 14 = 33 →

33 + 19 = 52


The number being added increases by 5 (+9, +14, +19) each time.

If 19 was added to 33 to get 52, then 19 + 5 = 24 was added to 52 to get ? → 76

[ 52 + 24 = 76 ]

To confirm that this is the pattern, continue with the other number → 76 24 + 5 = 29. 76 + 29 = 105.

Bingo! the correct answer is 76.

 Revelian Verbal Reasoning

 35 questions

 10 min

 No penalty for wrong answers

Revelian’s Verbal Reasoning Tests measures you in 3 main facets:

  1. Your capacity to understand concepts and take in written information.  
  2. Your ability to process and analyse what you’ve learned.
  3. How well you can reach viable conclusions and offer solutions to problems you were presented with.

All technical jobs offer daily challenges requiring you to process complex data. The more complex the data the more your verbal abilities come into play in determining your performance and output.

This is why you will surely encounter this type of test or questions of this sort when applying for tech, finance, consulting etc.

When you eventually sit this test, you’ll be presented with 35 randomly generated questions (that make their order unique only to you) and given 10 minutes to complete the test.

Let's do some verbal question examples:


Question 1: Easy

4 of the following are alike in some way. Please choose the other 2:


A) Journalist

B) Essay

C) Dictate

D) Novel

E) Article

F) Autobiography


✔️ The correct answers are (A) and (C).

Essay, novel, article and autobiography are writing genres.

Journalist and Dictate are words which relate to writing but are not writing genres.


Question 2: Hard

Which 2 of the following statements PROVE that Frank’s train will arrive in Montreal at exactly 12:00 PM?

A) The train travels at 150 km/h and makes 6 stops.

B) The train always reaches Kingston by 9:00 AM, which is two hours away from Montreal.

C) The trip to Montreal always takes exactly six hours to complete.

D) Frank leaves to the train station at 5:30 AM.

E) Frank always arrives 15 minutes before his train’s departure to Montreal at 6:00 AM.


✔️ The correct answers are (C) and (E).

This question takes into consideration one factor – time.

The statement that Frank will arrive in Montreal at exactly 12:00 PM is supported by the claims that the trip to Montreal always takes exactly 6 hours to complete (C).

And that Frank always arrives 15 minutes before his train’s departure to Montreal at 6:00 AM (E).

A 6-hour trip, leaving at 6:00 AM to Montreal means that Frank will arrive at 12:00 PM.

The other statements, (A), (B), and (D) are largely irrelevant and meant to distract the reader.

Statement (A) only speaks of the speed the train travels at, and the number of stops. One cannot prove when the train will arrive in Montreal with this statement.

Statement (B) can potentially be done mathematically, since the train leaves at 6:00 AM, arrives in Kingston at 9:00, and is 2 hours away from Montreal, meaning it will arrive at 11:00 AM, not 12:00 PM.

Statement (D) only mentions when Frank leaves his home and travels to the train station and does not work in conjunction with any other statement.

revelian abstract reasoning

32 questions

10 min

No penalty for wrong answers

The RART specialises in finding how well you work with theoretical problems. For example, you will be asked to detect relationships between shapes, scrutinise patterns and assess diagrams.

It will be your job to go through as many of the 32 problems as you can in the timed 10 minutes.

Let's jump into practicing some abstract sample questions:


Question 1: Easy

Which 2 of the items below do not belong with the others?


revelian abstract reasoning example question

✔️ The correct answer is (B) and (E).

All the items except item (B) and (E) have identical counterparts:

(A) and (F) are identical.

(C) and (D) are identical.

Items (B) and (E) are the only ones that do not have identical counterparts.


Question 2: Hard

Which 2 of the items below do not belong with the others?

 revelina abstract reasoning question example

✔️ The correct answer is (B) and (C).

Items (A), (D), (E), and (F) all contain shapes who have a total of 12 sides, when you count the sides of all of the shapes in a given item.

For example, item (E) contains a single shape with 12 sides.

Same thing goes for item (A), which contains 3 shapes – one with 4 sides, one with 3 sides, and one with 5 sides.

When you add the number of sides in all of the shapes, you will find there is a total of 12 sides in the item.

(3 + 4 + 5 = 12)

The same is true of items (D) and (F).

Items (B) and (C), however, have a different number of sides:

Item (B) contains a total of 13 sides (10 + 3 = 13).

Item (C) contains a total of 19 sides (4 + 7 + 8 = 19).



personality tests by revelian

2) Revelian Personality Tests

This test specialises in finding how well you work with theoretical problems. For example, you will be asked to detect relationships between shapes, scrutinise patterns and assess diagrams. It will be your job to go through as many of the 32 problems as you can in the timed 10 minutes.

Revelian personality tests also house 4 main tests that assess your character, behaviour and attitudes. They tend to be longer than the tests in the previous category, with some tests reaching 170 different questions. These are not difficult but may be a major obstacle if you lack the desired traits and behavioural inclinations.

They assess specific capabilities, from your ability to understand other people’s emotions or your decisions in different work-related situations to how well you think outside the box.

Revelian personality test

170 questions

No time limit

No right and wrong answers

The 16PF essentially predicts your behaviour, communication and level of performance in concrete areas considered critical to your job performance, such as:

  • how you relate to others
  • how well you work under pressure
  • how structured you are
  • your level of flexibility
  • how easily you are influenced
  • and your collaboration level

The 16PF assesses you on all these by creating scenarios to predict how you will react in the given situation, generally centered in your designated work environment.

While there is no time limit, the 170-question test typically takes about 30 minutes to complete.

revelian gamified tests

3) Revelian Gamified Tests

Gamified tests will probably be the most fun for you, but their purpose is serious all the same.

They assess specific capabilities, from your ability to understand other people’s emotions or your decisions in different work-related situations to how well you think outside the box.

Emotify is a facial-based game. You will be presented with a picture of a real person with a characteristic expression.

It will be your job to determine which emotion matches the facial expression. Unlike most games, there is no win or lose outcome.

This game will simply tell your prospective employers how well you can pick-up on non-verbal signals. Thus, the game measures your emotional intelligence or EI.

There are up to six different games in Cognify, however it is possible that you will not participate in all six. Your employer will choose the games that are most relevant to your hiring position.

Each game has a speciality to measure specific skillsets and informs the employer how well you will perform in various job-related situations.

The games can test fast-thinking, thinking outside the box, fitting shapes into small compartments, identifying similar shapes and more.




The following companies are known to use Revelian in their application process. 

It's important to note that each company may use different combinations of Revelian assessments or different assessment altogether during their recruitment efforts.

In order for you to be able to prepare efficiently, you best contact your recruiter to attempt and find out the exact test you're going to take, then construct a prep plan focused on that. 

Deloitte BMW Chevron BDO
BMW (Australia) Telstra PPB Advisory Australian Government
RSM Bird Woodside Technip New South Wales Government
Toga Hospitality Medina Hotels Thiess ARUP
APRA Pegasus Employment Equisuper Energy Australia
Suncorp AMP Peabody Energy Pepsico

Revelian’s difficulty level depends on you. Some people find verbal reasoning easier than numerical/vice versa.

What stumps most people is the short timeframe given to each subsection of the test.

So, the best thing to do is carefully read all instructions beforehand and remain focused and calm during the test.

You can take the test once every 12 months.

Unfortunately, no. You will only be asked to take the test after your application has been screened and selected to continue in the recruitment process.

Most likely, yes. Revelian provides employers the option of comparing your test results to a specific or normative group under such criteria as specific job, industry, entry-level or their companies’ particular incoming employees.

You can’t. The only way to participate in Revilian-based games is by receiving an invitation from an employer that uses Revelian as a test provider.

While you can look on Revelian’s main website and play similar games, there is nothing you can do to truly learn beforehand.

Revelian’s games measure abilities and traits, not specific knowledge that you can learn beforehand.


The best way to prepare is to think up various challenging situations and re-visit how you reacted.

You can also practice using our generic personality test prep pack.

Many people do so and we get few complaints. Though it is important to note that we don’t yet have a tailored personality test for Revelian (maybe in the not so far future we will)
