Our Cognitive Reasoning assessments are used by Airlines and Aviation Training Organisations to test your general intelligence, indicating your aptitude for learning across multiple presentations of information. A Cognitive Assessment is a key part of the aviation assessment and selection process at many different levels whether that is at a cadet level or a direct entry level captain position.

The practice test enables you to familiarise yourself with what to expect in a cognitive reasoning assessment and allow you to highlight any specific areas of weakness that may need further work prior to taking the assessment allowing you to perform at the best of your ability on the day.

What is included?

You will receive five attempts at the Cognitive Reasoning Practice Test which features 36 multiple choice questions. The test has a time limit of 30 minutes. All five attempts will feature the same questions. After purchasing you will have 3 months to complete all five attempts of your practice test.

You will receive a report detailing how you have done on the test upon completion of each attempt.

This test is designed to provide a report of your cognitive strengths and weaknesses using a fixed set of practice questions. This means each time you take the test, you will be presented with the same question paper. You have three months to take the tests so plenty of time for revision in between test attempts. This will allow you to focus your efforts on any weaker areas, refining your ability each time.
