About

The Saville Verbal analysis is an aptitude test designed to assess the ability to evaluate complex written information. The assessment contains a series of single and dual passages followed by four questions per passage which need to be answered based on the information presented.


Skills Required for This Test:

Understanding word meaning  Comprehending text  Making verbal inferences
Evaluating written materials Comparing arguments  Summarising a passage/idea 

Test Characteristics

The duration of the tests in reality might differ between employers and application processes; however, the concepts will remain the same. Usually the Swift analysis are comprised of 2-4 passages (8-16 questions) while the longer tests include 7-8 passages (28-32 questions).

The test is strictly timed, allowing 3 minutes to answer each passage, which translates to less than a minute per each question on average.
