## What Is the Aspiring Minds Assessment?

Aspiring Minds Assessment, also known as AMCAT (Aspiring Minds Computer Adaptive Test), is a widely used online test used to screen candidates. Since the test is administered by SHL, it is also known as the SHL Aspiring Minds Test.

The Aspiring Minds test is adaptive- When you answer a question correctly, the next question becomes harder, and when you answer it incorrectly, the next question becomes easier.

## What Questions Are Asked in the AMCAT Test?

The test contains 24 unique multiple-choice questions to be solved in 35 minutes, and covers 3 topics:

• Logical Ability
• Quantitative Ability
• Verbal Ability

Further below we give more detail about each topic, including sample questions and answers.

## Aspiring Minds Assessment Topics, Sample Questions, and Answers

Here are some more details on the 3 topics of the Aspiring Minds test, including one sample question for each:

### AMCAT Topic #1 - Logical Ability

Logical ability questions on the Aspiring Minds Test will assess your ability to follow rules and come to conclusions. This will mostly be done in rather creative ways that are not used in similar assessments.

### AMCAT Logical Ability Sample Question

Refer to the symbols below and their corresponding meanings. The given signs indicate the following operations/relationships:

• X ? Y means X is less than or equal to Y.
• X/Y means X is equal to Y.
• X = Y means X is greater than Y.
• X + Y means X is half of Y

Statements:

R ? A, B = A, and B/C

Which of the two conclusions is definitely true based on the information provided?

I. R ? C

II. A + C

The AMCAT test has unique and often counterintuitive logical rules, as you can see from the question above.

That's why we have developed an Aspiring Minds Test Practice that specifically addresses the rules of the test.

### AMCAT Topic #2 - Quantitative Ability

AMCAT quantitative ability questions are generally similar to those used in other numerical tests and are designed to assess your ability to calculate and interpret numerical information.

These include number series, word problems, and calculations. However, they are considered trickier and more advanced than what you'd encounter in other tests.

### AMCAT Quantitative Ability Sample Question

11, 12, 13, 15, 18, 23, 31, ?

The series of differences trick is a common one in the Aspiring Minds Assessment, and it is surely not the trickiest one.

The Aspiring Minds Test Practice combines all the common numerical tricks used in this challenging assessment.

### AMCAT Topic #3 - Verbal Ability

This type of Aspiring Minds Test question basically assesses your ability to comprehend often

### AMCAT Verbal Ability Sample Question

The Macondo incident, in which a subsea oil well exploded in the Mexican Gulf, was unprecedented, but so was the oil industry's response. Based on the work of various industry task forces, improvements have been made in prevention, capping and containment, and spill response.

Task force recommendations are driving improvement in standards and practises related to well design and installation, and the industry now has the capability to quickly contain and cap a well in very deep water.

What capability was upgraded after the explosion?

Verbal ability questions in the Aspiring Minds Assessment are often overlooked by candidates.

That is a mistake - the need to read and solve quickly makes this type of question challenging and one that requires careful preparation in advance.
