What Is the Volkswagen Group Management Assessment? 

The Volkswagen Group management assessment is a series of four individual cognitive tests provided by Aon/Cut-e. Each test assesses different skills and competencies required for managerial positions and leading roles – 

  • Verbal reasoning 
  • Numerical reasoning 
  • Deductive reasoning 
  • Inductive reasoning 

The AON/cut-e tests are known for being pretty challenging, not only for their strict time limit but also because you are given points for your correct answers and deducted for incorrect ones, which means that guessing is not always the best option. 

Let’s view each test and find out exactly what to expect when taking the assessment.  

Volkswagen Group Management Verbal Reasoning Test (scales verbal) 

This test assesses your verbal proficiency and capacity to comprehend, examine, and interpret written information.  

You will be presented with a text divided into six tabs, followed by a statement.  

You will need to conclude if the statement is true, false, or 'cannot say' based on the information provided in the tabs. 

Note that each tab can only be viewed individually.  

You will have 49 questions to address in 12 minutes15 seconds per question.  

💡 Try to solve the following example within 15 seconds: 

Use these tabs to navigate between the different passages, then answer the question below:

Sturcutre & Responsibilities

Pipelines – this service is provided by the materials division representatives and not someone who specializes in plumbing, thus it's one of the least profitable products the company offers due to bad reviews.

Natural gas products – a seasonal product operated by seasonal employees only. The revenue from these products is allocated to the subsidiary company.

Electricity usage efficiency – this service is one of the most profitable products/services the company offers. This service is scheduled through sales and is provided by the engineers.

The company's research team is trying to initiate a new business strategy and provide one additional product – printed 3-D building blocks. This is not a product yet, but it will be in 2029.

Products & Services


Shareholders – shareholders are people who invest their own funds in a company. A shareholder is usually an outside investor, but some management positions hold shares in the company as an incentive to put more effort into it. Employees from management positions cannot be hired as managers in the subsidiary organization too, even if it's a non-profit organization, to avoid a conflict of interest.
Management – this division is comprised of the CEO, the sales representative, and team leaders and secretaries who have worked in the company for three years or more.

Materials – this division is comprised of engineers, truckers, lab researchers, assembly line workers and tech support. During the high season period, the company hires a fair amount of freelancers to help with the lab research. After the season ends, their contract is terminated. The cleaning staff is an outside company that is getting paid to clean the organization’ facilities. Their actions are supervised by the safety engineer.

The company will open a bid for the audit committee position every year. The chairman must be someone with no substantial affiliation to the company, not an employee, not from an employee's family or future family, and certainly cannot be someone who took part in the organization in the past 5 years.


The cleaning staff must have three employees on "standby" to respond to any of the safety engineer’s calls.

All employees must work 9 hours a day, and no more than 13 hours in overtime.

The CEO may allocate 12% of the company's yearly revenue for research and development.

For charity outreach, the company will send three employees to Manchester's soup kitchen for a full workweek.


The management division is located in the northern business center of Manchester, whereas there are three active locations around the country: The pipeline manufacturing factory is located in the industrial area of South Manchester. The natural gas product is located on an oil platform on the shores of the country. The electricity usage efficiency is a service that does not require a plant but does require an office with all the right facilities. This office is located next to the management offices.

Once a year, the company rents a research lab for three months in a different location.

The cleaning staff has its own cabin for sleeping outside the pipeline factory.

The company owns a suite of offices in downtown Manchester. Those offices are rented to a third party at the moment but can be cleared out within 14 days from the moment the company notifies the third party.

Missions & Schedule

All plants must be running 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Assembly line workers work in shifts of 8 hours. Within their shifts, workers must melt 850 lbs. of steel and manufacture 107 deluxe pipelines altogether.

The CEO, the head of engineers, and the employee in charge of the cleaning staff must convene once a week for a site-wide operational evaluation.

The delivery team, which is comprised of the truckers, must report to the head of sales every 12 hours.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is elected by the shareholders and is assigned to monitor the company's activity as a whole.

The Board of Directors hires the CEO themselves, and they have the power to fire him if 10% of the management agrees to it.

The Board of Directors convenes every 75 days and discusses the CEO's performance every 100 days.

The Board of Directors has the right to allocate up to $100,000 in bonuses every year. Higher amounts should be authorized by the shareholders' general assembly.

Every director can be fired by the shareholders' general assembly, and once every five years 40% of them must be replaced by new directors.

No management employees are allowed to be in the company's Board of Directors.

The board must consist of at least 33% females, at least 20% males and at least 12% university graduates.


The company is willing to provide any document regarding electricity and pollution stats for the past year to any inquiring party. The document will be issued by the weekly evaluation committee.

With regard to yearly revenue, the board will not provide any reports to any party other than the shareholders.

The company will not provide any reports regarding its missions, schedule, or the profit division of products and services to any third party.

Shareholder reports should be provided by the CEO to the board, and the board will disseminate the reports to the shareholders.

Once every five months the company will deliver a report to the government addressing issues required by the commissioner. However, if any of the information could potentially hurt future revenue or violate privacy, the report won't be provided without a warrant.

The company will receive tax refunds of 12% if they invest at least 42 weekly hours in a known non-profit organization or at least 60 weekly hours in any other charity work. The 12% tax refund may accumulate into millions a year, thus it is a profitable strategy. The company has been receiving refunds for the past three years.

Question All the cleaning staff is on standby every single moment.

A. True
B. False
C. Cannot Say
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

We don't know how many employees are on the cleaning staff, thus we cannot say if the requirement for three employees on standby (as stated in the first paragraph in the Responsibilities tab) requires all of them or just part of the cleaning staff.

The correct answer is 'Cannot Say'

Tip: To locate the relevant information, it is necessary to review all the different tabs Your answer must be submitted while you are on the correct tab, as even a correct answer will not receive credit if submitted on an incorrect tab.

Volkswagen Group Management Numerical Reasoning Test (scales numerical)

This test assesses your ability to comprehend, analyze, and evaluate numerical data presented in charts, diagrams, and tables.  

Like the verbal reasoning test, you will be presented with numerical data divided into six data sheets, followed by a multiple-choice question. 

You will need to perform the necessary calculations to reach the correct solution. 

You will have 37 questions to address in 12 minutes20 seconds per question.

Overall, excluding the accessories and footwear departments, the remaining five clothing departments yield over 80% of total profit every year.

A. True
B. False
C. Cannot Say
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The word "departments" in the question implies that the solution is to be found under the "Departments" tab. The graph presents the varying share in profit for each of the different departments across three years.

The statement deals with something that supposedly happens "every year". Since the provided data is a 3-year summary only, we do not have enough information to deem this statement to be true. We might, however, have enough information to decide that it is false, if we find at least one occasion that contradicts it. If in one of FYs 6-8 the five clothing departments yielded less than 80% of the total profit, this would be enough to determine that they do not yield over 80% every year.

We could add up the data for all five countries to check whether the result reaches 80%. A quicker way, however, would be to add the other two countries, and see if they exceed 20%:

In FY 7, the accessories and footwear departments together were responsible for
4%+18% = 22% of total profit.
This means that the remaining five clothing departments were responsible for
100%-22% = 78% of total profit, which is less than 80%.

Thus, we can determine that the above statement is false.

Tip: Questions based on graphs and tables may contain extraneous information that is not relevant to the solution. Read the question before examining the different tabs to make it easier to locate the needed data.

Volkswagen Group Management Deductive Reasoning Test (scales lst)

This test assesses your ability to acquire, deduce, and apply new information.

Similar to a Sudoku, you will be presented with a grid comprising multiple symbols with a solitary cell marked with a question mark.

You will need to determine which symbol replaces the question mark cell while ensuring that no two identical symbols appear in the same row or column.

You will have 6 minutes to complete as many puzzles as you can.

💡 Try to solve one yourself:

What symbol should appear in place of the question mark?



aon scales lst example


Answer & Explanation

The shape missing from the fourth column is the X.

Having added the X to the bottom row, the shape missing from the bottom row is a circle.

Therefore, the correct answer is :

Tip: As an adaptive test, the difficulty level of the tasks will increase as the test progresses. This means that the grids will become larger and the symbols sparser, requiring longer and more demanding thought processes to arrive at a solution.

Volkswagen Group Management Inductive Reasoning Test (scales ix)

This test, also known as Discover Rules, assesses your ability to identify patterns and inconsistencies and analyze relationships within provided data.

You will be presented with a set of nine items comprising shapes, symbols, lines, and other elements.

You will need to identify the rule governing the series pattern and recognize the item that does not conform to this pattern.

You will have 20 questions to address in 5 minutes15 seconds per question.

💡 Here is an example from our prepPack:


Which object does not follow the rule?

Answer & Explanation

The objects form a numerical series: When moving from one object to the next, the number of stars increases by 1 and then, from the 5th object onwards, decreases by 1.
The only object that does not fit this rule is H, which contains 3 stars instead of 2.

Another way to look at the question is to say that the objects form a formal series: Each time a new star is added to (and from the 5th object onwards, an existing star is removed from) the pattern of stars that appeared in the previous object.

It is not necessary to discern both the numerical and formal aspects of the series to reach the solution.

Therefore the answer is H.

Tip: The intricate details are the key to succeeding in the test. Carefully observe all the recurring elements within the series to uncover its underlying rule.
