Part one is a test of your ability to process information, recognise relationships and be able to tell the difference between relevant and irrelevant information.

To make the most of this practice test, keep track of the timer onscreen and plan your answers accordingly. Your score is calculated solely on the number of correct answers you achieve, so if you get stuck move onto the next one and revisit if you have time. In exam conditions you would have five minutes to complete this number of questions. On the day you will have 9 minutes to complete 30 questions. On the next page you will have 2.5 minutes to complete 8 questions, this allows you slightly more time to practice and get to know the test.
