What is the Saville Swift Analysis Aptitude Test?

The Saville Swift Analysis Aptitude Test is an aptitude test that measures your verbal, numerical, and spatial abilities under a tight time limit. You are given six minutes to answer each section of the test, with 18 minutes in total for the entire test.

What differentiates the Saville Swift Analysis test from other aptitude tests is the focus on analysis under pressure and the test format. In the verbal and numerical aptitude sections, the test is divided into two four-question “testlets” which are based on either verbal or numerical information. You have 3 minutes per each, leaving under a minute per question – meaning you need to analyse the information “swiftly” to complete the section.

In the numerical analysis section, for example, you could be presented with statistical data in the form of graphs or tables, and you will need to work quickly and accurately to identify the relevant information that will allow you to reach the correct answers. It is important to note that each testlet must be completed before moving on to the next one, and any remaining time cannot be carried over to the next testlet.

How Can You Score High on the Saville Swift Analysis Aptitude Tests?

The most challenging part of the Saville Swift Analysis Aptitude Test is time pressure. The test is only 18 minutes long, with 24 questions to answer. This means you have 45 seconds per question. If you struggle with a particular question, it can be challenging to resist the temptation to rush through it. However, this is often a mistake, as it can lead to careless errors.

Another challenging aspect of the saville aptitude test is the variety of question types. The test assesses various cognitive skills through different types of aptitude questions. This means that you need to be able to think quickly and adapt your approach to different types of questions. It can be challenging to start if you are unfamiliar with all the question types.

Saville Analysis Test Practice Questions - Verbal Aptitude

Experts agree that arts and culture are essential to the economy - but the precise relationship is complicated. The main question is: does investment in the arts stimulate growth, or are the arts the product of economic development? It would seem that the case for continued arts funding is clear-cut - enjoying the arts (visiting art galleries and theatres) boosts the economy.

However, some argue that the link between arts investment and economic output is tenuous. Researchers today are exploring a different angle of this relationship: they are trying to understand how the subjective value of the arts - the “happiness factor” - may translate into economic benefits. According to the “happiness factor” hypothesis, when a place develops a critical mass of arts and vibrancy, it attracts talented people, which, in turn, raises income.

1. Talented people contribute to growth 

True on the basis of the passage
False on the basis of the passage
Not possible to say if the statement is true or false on the basis of the passage
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The passage deals with the directionality of the connection between the arts and the economy, suggesting a possible “happiness factor” hypothesis linking the arts to the attraction of talented people, which in turn may contribute to economic growth (raising income). It does not lead to the conclusion made in the assertion that: “Talented people contribute to economic growth” but only suggests this directional connection.


2. What isn’t mentioned in the passage as a means for improving the economy?

Visiting galleries
Talented people
Buying art
Visiting theatres
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The passage describes, in two different places, the ways in which the arts and the economy are related. In one place it suggests that: “… the case for continued arts funding is clear-cut - enjoying the arts (visiting art galleries and theatres) boosts the economy,” eliminating distracters A and D. In another place it offers a different connection: “According to the 'happiness factor' hypothesis, when a place develops a critical mass of arts and vibrancy it tends to attract talented people which, in turn, tends to raise income,” eliminating distracter B (as raising income is a way of improving the economy). Therefore, the correct answer is C - buying art is not mentioned in the passage as a means of improving the economy.

saville numerical analysis sample question


1. In percentages, how many more global hectares does the U.S.A occupy in comparison to Japan?

Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

We need to calculate how many global hectares are occupied by USA and Japan, and then compare between them on a percentage change basis.

USA: (300 mil) x (8 gha/person)=2,400 global hectares

Japan: (125 mil)x(5 gha/person)=625 global hectares

% change = (Difference/Original)x100% = [(2400 - 625)/625]x100% = [(2400/625)-(625/625)]x100% = [(2,400/625)-1]x100% = 284%

2. Approximately what proportion of the combined global hectare count is Japan responsible for?

Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

This question is not just about adding up all the ecological footprint values and then dividing that of Japan by the calculated sum. We must bring into consideration the population of each country:

GHA = Ecological Footprint x Population

South Africa: 50x2.5 = 125
France: 60x5 = 300
Romania: 25x2.5 = 62.5
Germany: 75x3 = 225
Japan: 125x5 = 625
USA: 300x8 = 2400

Total GHA: 125+300+62.5+225+625+2400 = 3737.5.
Japan's GHA: 625

Japan’s ratio: 625/3737.5 = 0.167
The correct answer is approximately 17%.


Saville Swift Analysis Test Practice Questions - Spatial 

The spatial section of the Saville analysis test is different than the previous test section, as it measures your spatial aptitude - i.e. your ability to visualize objects and implement rules based on logical reasoning.

Saville swift analysis spatial reasoning answer 1

Which option replaces the question mark according to the operators?

Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

In this question we must figure out what the missing input looked like, based on the two operators that appear. 

We know that operator M deletes the second shape, and this is actually all we need - we simply use elimination. 

Since the output shows two small black circles and one large black triangle, we can see that all the options other than A must be wrong. If we would put any of the other options in the input, operator M would have deleted either a small black circle or a large black triangle, meaning that the output couldn't appear as it does.

This is why option A is the only viable option, and the correct one. 

Note - we can see that operator S reverses the order of the shapes. 



 Which pattern best completes the series?

saville swift analysis abstract reasoning test sample question


saville swift analysis abstract reasoning test answer


Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The correct answer is (2).

There are three rules in this series: frequency, motion, and progression.
First, each step, the shapes alternate between a circle and a square. This means that in the missing frame, the shape should be a square.
Second, the shape moves between different spots in the frame: the top left corner, the centre of the frame, the bottom right corner, and back again. This means that in the missing frame, the square should be in the bottom right corner.
Third, the shapes are divided into four quarter. Every step, one other quarter changes colour in an anticlockwise direction. First, the quarters change colours from white to dark blue until the shape is completely dark, and then it starts to change back to white. This means that the shape in the missing frame should be a square with left white quarters, and dark right quarters.
The only answer that fits these rules is answer (2).
