UCAT Abstract Reasoning - Example Questions

UCAT - Quantitative Reasoning UCAT - Situational Judgment

## What is the UCAT Abstract Reasoning Test?

The UCAT Abstract Reasoning subtest is one of four parts of the UCAT Cognitive Test. It is used to assess one’s ability to recognise patterns as well as generate hypotheses, change tracks, and critically evaluate. You must consider these skills throughout this section of the test. This test does not contain numbers or words, but rather the questions are based on patterns of provided shapes.

The Abstract Reasoning section is comprised of 55 questions (associated with sets of shapes) to be completed in 13 minutes (plus one minute for instructions).

The UCAT Abstract Reasoning questions are very tricky, and a lot of test takers find themselves wasting a lot of time on the first questions of the subtest.

On our PrepPack™ we included a complete Abstract Reasoning guide (in addition to three Abstract Reasoning practice tests), to help you identify the patterns faster and cut down that solving time.

## UCAT Abstract Reasoning Section Format

There are four different question types in the Abstract Reasoning section:

• Type 1 – You are given a test shape and asked to decide to which set of shapes presented your shape belongs (Set A, Set B, or Neither).
• Type 2 – You need to choose which shape comes next in the provided series of shapes.
• Type 3 – You need to select which shape completes the provided statement (involving a group of shapes). These statements are presented in the form of an analogy between two shapes, similar to word analogies.
• Type 4 – There are two sets of shapes and you need to choose which answer choice belongs to one of the sets.
