About

The Saville Numerical Analysis is an aptitude test designed to assess applicants' ability to evaluate numerical data. It is, in fact, a standard numerical reasoning test. 


Saville Test Characteristics

This assessment contains a series of single or dual data sets, e.g. a table and a graph or two tables, followed by four questions per set. These need to be answered using the data presented. While the duration of the tests may differ between companies and in application processes, the concepts on them remain the same. The Swift Analysis test is usually comprised of 2–4 sets (8-16 questions), though longer tests include between 7–8 sets (28-32 questions). The Work Aptitude series does not exist in the Swift version; it is comprised of 28 questions and lasts 20 minutes.

The test is strictly timed, with three minutes to answer all the questions for a single passage (less than a minute per question).


Skills Required for This Test

The main objective of this test is to evaluate a candidate's ability to extract data presented in tables and/or graphs. The test also assesses other important numerical abilities:

Making Numerical Inferences 

Evaluating Quantities 

Comparing Data 


Who Is Likely to Take This Test?

The Saville Numerical Analysis Test is given to many different types of applicants: graduates, professionals, management trainees, managers, and senior managers.

Saville use three different test series for these groups:

  • Executive Aptitude – a combination of a numerical analysis test, a verbal analysis test, and an abstract reasoning test
  • Analysis Aptitude – similar to the above except that a diagrammatic reasoning test replaces the abstract reasoning test
  • Work Aptitude – the same tests as those in the Analysis series, but with a difference in length and number of questions
