Benefit #1: True-to-Life Accuracy

The type of questions featured on the Thomas GIA test is exclusive to that specific test; you will see them nowhere else.

💡 Here’s a sample question from the perceptual speed section:

How many pairs contain the same image? (Mirror images excluded)

Thomas GIA Sample

The questions on the actual test do not disappear after 4 seconds like the one above does. However, owing to the time constraint attached to the test, this is how much time you will have to solve them if you want to pass the Thomas GIA with a high score.

Research across various fields has consistently shown that achieving any improvement in a cognitive task requires practising that particular task. This is why practising with related or similar, yet non-accurate material is often ineffectual.

JobTestPrep’s Thomas GIA Test Practice

  • Thomas GIA-tailored questions will get you accustomed to and professional in solving these particular types of questions.
  • The solving techniques taught in the PrepPack are designed specifically with Thomas GIA questions in mind.

Benefit #2: Prior Knowledge

To understand why prior knowledge of the Thomas GIA test is important, take a look at this innocent-looking question from the Thomas GIA Number Speed and Accuracy section:

This test examines your ability to perform simple numerical tasks quickly and accurately.

In this question, you are presented with three numbers. Identify the lowest and highest numbers, and then calculate their differences from the third, middle number.

Your task is to choose the number which is furthest from the middle number (either the lowest or the highest number).

Each question has three possible answer choices. Only one answer is correct.

Important notes: The meaning of "the middle number", or “the remaining number” in this testing context, is the number with a value between the lowest and highest numbers. That does not necessarily mean this number will be positioned in the middle. The questions refer to whole numbers. Therefore, the sentence "3 is four numbers away from 7" means that 3 is four whole numbers away from 7."

On the real Thomas International GIA test, each section will welcome you with long, complicated instructions to let you know how to solve the questions. This kind of information overload causes 3 problems:

  • It costs you mental resources that could otherwise be used for solving the test.
  • It puts you at risk of misunderstanding and thus getting the questions wrong.
  • It reduces your confidence and extends your solving time on the several first questions.

JobTestPrep’s Thomas GIA Test Practice

  • Knowing the exact instructions of the Thomas GIA sections beforehand puts you on autopilot and saves your mental resource for the actual test.
  • Constant practice based on these instructions allows you to show up to the real test knowing precisely what to do.
  • Increases your confidence and saves you precious time on the first few questions.

Benefit #3: Focus on Your Weak Spots

Everyone has their weaker areas. Some have difficulty using quick mental maths, others find spatial reasoning disorienting and unintuitive. To succeed on the Thomas GIA test, you must excel in all 5 test sections.

To help you focus your practice on where you need the most, we have added a preliminary diagnostic test to the practice plan.

  • How does it work?

Take a look at this excerpt from the score report you get when finishing your first Thomas GIA diagnostic test:

Thomas GIA Score

The 🗸's represent questions answered correctly. The ✗'s represent incorrect answers.

Did you notice that the Number Speed and Accuracy section has more ✗'s? That means that your skill in this particular section needs some improvement.

This way, you will be able to focus your practice on the areas you need most and make it as effective as it can be.
