About the cut-e Test

cut-e tests (AON tests) differ significantly from those of other companies in terms of concepts, formats and question types. One of the major differences is that cut-e tests are typically much shorter than other tests on the market. Candidates often have no more than 12 minutes to impress with their abilities in a certain subject.

Like all aptitude or psychometric tests, cut-e tests require skills you can acquire and develop by practicing. The more familiar you become with the material and the types of questions, the less likely you are to be surprised during the actual cut-e assessment.

cut-e Scales Test (Numerical, Verbal & Logical)

There are three main types of exams in the cut-e scales tests category:

I)   cut-e Scales Numerical Ability
II)  cut-e Scales Verbal Ability
III) cut-e Scales Logical Ability

 

I) cut-e Numerical Test: Scales Numerical Ability

The cut-e numerical ability test assesses how well you retrieve information and draw logical conclusions from numerical data presented in tables and charts.

On the cut-e numerical test, numerical data is presented in charts and tables in a special format, closely resembling a typical case study. All charts and tables refer to a certain company and are organized in six different tabs so that only one tab is visible at a given moment. Each tab contains a single table or chart. You may only view one tab at a time, but you can move back and forth between them as many times as you need.

Each question presents a statement referring to one of the tabs. Your task is to select the relevant tab, review its contents, and to decide whether the statement is true, false, or perhaps the provided information is insufficient to decide either way. In order to make that decision, you need not only to interpret the numerical data correctly, but also figure out which tab contains the relevant information for that particular statement.

3 industry-dependent versions

There are three industry-dependent versions of this assessment: consumer, finance, and industrial. The difference between these versions is not in the level of difficulty or the mathematical abilities being assessed, rather only in the subject matter.

The finance version, for example, may describe an investment company and present more finance-oriented tables (e.g., balance sheet). The consumer version, on the other hand, is of a retail company and includes some HR data. And finally, the industrial version may present production details. The questions, tables, and charts on all three versions are of the same complexity level, and none of the tests requires any previous knowledge of professional terms or anything in addition.

cut-e Numerical Ability - Sample Question:

 

In which tab are you most likely to find the answer to the question? Click below to see the answer.

cut-e Numerical Ability

The word “department” implies that the answer to the question is under the “Departments” tab.

Can you answer the question now?

The correct answer is false.

The graph presents the varying share in profit for each of the different departments across a three-year period.

We need to compare the kids’ and babies’ departments in Financial Years (FYs) 6-8. Look at the graph. In FY 6, both departments have the same share in profit.

In FYs 7 and 8, however, the kids’ department share was greater, not smaller. The above statement is therefore false.

Experts Tips

  1. Spend a minute or two familiarizing yourself with the contents of each tab. This will make it easier to figure out which tab contains the information necessary to answer each question.
  2. No question requires information from more than one tab to solve.
  3. Make sure you base your answers only on the information given in the tabs.
  4. In the real test, you will have to make sure the tab you are viewing as you are giving your answer is indeed the relevant tab. If you give a correct answer with the wrong tab in the background, your score will not be affected.

II) cut-e Verbal Test: Scales Verbal Reasoning

The verbal reasoning test measures your reading comprehension skills. More specifically, it requires the understanding and analysis of complex verbal information.
Understanding how cut-e tests are different than other verbal reasoning tests is very important.

Most verbal reasoning tests include several long passages, with each passage focusing on a different subject and sometimes presenting a certain argument. However, cut-e's texts are more objective, and you are required to handle multiple shorter passages simultaneously.

The structure of cut-e verbal reasoning tests is unique as well, resembling a typical case study. Numerous short paragraphs are organized in separate tabs so that only one tab is visible at a given moment. Each question is a statement, and your task is to decide whether it is true, false, or if the provided information is insufficient to arrive at a firm conclusion.

The 3 industry-dependent versions

To make that decision, you need not only draw precise conclusions from the text but also to figure out which tab contains the relevant information for that particular statement.
There are three industry-dependent versions of this assessment: consumer, finance, and industrial. The difference between these versions is not in the level of difficulty, but only in the subject matter.

The finance version, for example, may describe an investment company and present more finance-oriented strategies, whereas the consumer version may be of a retail company and present expanding plans. The texts and questions in all three versions of the test are of the same difficulty level, and none of the tests requires any previous knowledge of professional terms.

These tests assess your verbal skills as well as your ability to make your way through a relatively large amount of text in a very short time. They are mainly used by cut-e for screening graduates as well as applicants for middle and senior management positions.

Common verbal reasoning practice questions may help you exercise your reading comprehension, but they cannot adequately prepare you for the other elements included in these tests.

For that section, we have designed an online practice pack that is able to simulate the real cut-e verbal reasoning test. Our pack includes full-length practice tests as well as comprehensive answer explanations and solving tips. We also guide you on how to solve true/false/cannot say questions, how to quickly make your way through the different tabs, and how to shorten the time it takes you to answer questions correctly. Please take a closer look below at our cut-e verbal ability pack and start practicing today to improve your score.

cut-e Verbal Reasoning - Sample Question:

 

cut-e scales verbal ability sample question

In which tab are you most likely to find the answer to the question? Click below to see the answer. 

cut-e Verbal Test

The statement mentions Arckight's shareholders and customers. There is only one tab referring to both in its section's titles - "Values and Philosophy".

Can you answer the question now?

The correct answer is TRUE.

According to the "Shareholders Authoriy" section, "The Board of Directors must provide shareholders with monthly progress reports and publish them on the company site, as well as through the corporate mailing list". Here we have two mediums, the company site and the corporate mailing list.

The "customer Input" states, "each device has a designated built-in feedback button that enables on-going contact between customer and company. "The feedback button is the third medium. We know of at least three mediums of communication between Arclight and its shareholders and customers. Thus, the statement is TRUE.

Experts Tips

  1. Before answering the questions, it's advisable not to try and go over all of the tabs. Focus on their titles, they should be descriptive enough to understand their content.
  2. The questions are mostly straightforward, the answers are usually clear and appear in the tabs almost verbatim. Once you think you are in the correct tab, read every line until you find the answer.

III) cut-e Logical Test: Scales logical Ability

cut-e's abstract tests are known for being different than almost any other abstract reasoning test on the market. These tests measure inductive reasoning and rules discovery abilities. They can take between 5–12 minutes to complete and are meant for apprentices, graduates, and administrative positions. Other tests evaluate deductive reasoning. These are between 5-15 minutes long and are mainly used for IT and engineering positions.

Here you can find 3 types of cut-e logical tests:

A) Scales cls - Inductive logical thinking

B) Scales ix - Inductive logical thinking

C) Scales lst - Deductive logical thinking

 

Let's look at the different types of the cut-e logical ability tests with some of the sample questions that contain explanations and expert tips. This will enable you to prepare for the real test and provide your best performance on the test.

 

A) Scales cls - Inductive logical thinking

In this type of test, each task screen presents six tables containing numbers and letters. The tables are divided into two groups, so the numbers and letters in each group follow a certain rule or set of rules. Each table is marked by color according to the group it belongs to: orange (above the table) or blue (below the table).

 

cut-e Scales cls - Sample Question:

cut-e test sample question

At the bottom of the test screen, there are four additional tables with numbers and letters. Your task is to decide which group each of these tables belongs to. You then need to assign each table to its group by clicking on the appropriate circle (either above or below the table).

This is the correct answer:

cut-e test sample 3

Pattern: All tables with marking above (orange) contain 4 different numbers. All tables with marking below (blue) contain 3 different numbers.


Expert Tips

  1. You only need to discover one pattern in order to solve each question. There is no need to waste time trying to figure out both the orange and blue patterns.
  2. Having doubt? Guess! There is no penalty for answering a question incorrectly.

B) Scales ix- Inductive logical thinking

The test comprises of 20 questions to be answered in 5 minutes, meaning you have an average of 15 seconds to answer each question. Each question in the test consists of a row of nine objects. All objects but one conform to the same rule, and your task is to select the object that does not fit this rule. 

 

cut-e Scales ix - Sample Question:

 

cut-e scales ix sample question

The correct answer is object #4 from the left.

All objects conform to the following rule (regardless of their order): Each object contains an odd number of shapes (1, 3, 5 or 7).
The only object that does not fit this rule is object #4, which contains an even number of shapes (4).

Note: The variations in the shapes type and location serve as a distraction; the only thing that matters is whether or not the object contains an odd number of shapes.


Experts Tips

  1. The rules in some of the easy questions are easy to spot at a glance. Before you start examining each object, skim the entire row to see if anything jumps out at you. Only if that doesn't happen, try to make out the rule.
  2. In some questions, the objects may form a series, i.e. the rule has something to do with the order of the objects. In other questions, however, the order of the objects can be irrelevant.
  3. Most people don't complete the whole test within the time limit, so don't worry if you don't make it to the end. Accuracy is as important as speed.
  4. The questions consist of 9 objects, each containing shapes with different characteristics (number, type, colour, etc.). This requires that you stay focused and ignore all irrelevant details.
  5. Do not guess! In this test, points are deducted for incorrect answers. It means that even if you answer many questions correctly, you may still end up with a relatively low score because of the questions answered incorrectly.
  6. There might be two questions that seem to be very similar, but in fact are based on completely different rules. To deal with this challenge, you need to be able to quickly shift your mode of thinking from one question to the next.

C) Scales lst - Deductive logical thinking

Each question consists of a 4x4 or 5x5 square filled with shapes. The rules that apply to the shapes are similar to a basic Sudoku game: each shape must appear only once in each row and column. Your task is to select the one shape that belongs where the question mark (“?") sign is shown.

 

cut-e Scales lst - Sample Question:

 

cut-e scales lst sample question

The correct answer is object #2 from the left (The triangle).

Since there is already a circle in the last column of the top row, the circle in the second column must be in the second row.

cut-e-scales-lst

There is already a triangle in the bottom row of the last column.

scales-lst-sample-question

Having added the circle, the triangle in the second row must be in the fourth column.

scales-lst-sample-question

Therefore, the correct answer is the triangle.


Experts Tips

  1. Every symbol only appears once in each row and column. Use this knowledge to eliminate any answer choices that already appear in the row or column with the “?” box.
  2. Many of the harder questions require multiple steps to find the solution. Copy such harder questions to paper so you can write down every symbol you figure out in the process of determining which symbol belongs in the question mark (“?”) box.

cut-e Test ✻ FAQ

How are cut-e tests scored?

Most of the cut-e tests will have points allocated for each answer you get correct, while deducting points for every answer you get wrong. Once you have completed your test, all these points will be added up to determine your final score. 

How should I approach my cut-e test?

When preparing to take your upcoming cut-e assessment, the best strategy is to make sure you prepare beforehand. Taking sample practice exams can help familiarize you with the test material and format, so that you can feel confident about what to expect on the real thing. Remember, getting nervous when taking the test can affect your concentration and performance. For this reason, practicing in advance will ease your nerves and assure that you stay calm and focused when taking your cut-e test.

What types of tests are there?

There are a variety of different cut-e tests that you may be expected to take. The type of test you will be required to take depends on which traits the job you are applying for wants to assess. cut-e cognitive aptitude tests are often administered when measuring candidates’ logical, numerical, and verbal capabilities. 


cut-e Personality Test (squares)

cut-e squares is an integrity test aimed at identifying individuals who are prone to counterproductive work behaviour (CWB), i.e. doing things that are against employers' interests. Some factors which contribute to the likelihood that one will engage in amoral behaviour are; distraction, ambiguity, boredom, indifference, opportunism and superficiality.

Each of these factors applies a unique pressure on an individual who encounters them. Dealing with this pressure can only be done when one possesses specific personal attributes, which are necessary when attempting to resist these situational factors. Successfully handling CWB requires one to be cautious to deal with opportunism, conscientious to deal with superficiality, disciplined to deal with boredom, empathetic to deal with indifference, honest to deal with ambiguity and reflective to deal with boredom.

After reading the statement, you will have to decide how accurately it describes you on a scale. The bar ranges between “Holds less true for me than for others” to “Holds equally true for me and for others” and to “Holds more true for me and for the others”. Simply click the point on the bar, which indicates where you fall on the spectrum.

 

cut-e Personality Test - Sample Question

cut-e Personality Test - Sample Question

 

You may be asked about the same personality trait from two different perspectives. For example, to evaluate your empathy, the statement might be positive: “I often feel concerned for people less fortunate than I”, or negative: “I am annoyed by unhappy people who are just sorry for themselves”.

To evaluate how cautious you are, the statement might be positive: “I am a cautious person who generally avoids risks”, or negative: “I am rather bold and fearless in my actions”. In each scale there are exactly three positive and three negative statements. 

 

Expert Tips 

  1. Your reaction time (the time it takes you to place your response), is measured and might affect your overall score. Only heavy deviations from your own mean reaction time are informative. Therefore, try to keep the response time approximately the same for all questions.
  2. Try to avoid making any corrections once you’ve recorded a response, since corrections are also considered.
  3. Don't spend too much time thinking over any question – usually, the first answer that comes to mind is the one you should choose.
  4. Answer every question - do not skip any.
  5. Avoid marking a neutral answer option.

Since the test measures integrity only – all six scores are summed together to form a single integrity score. The higher the score, the better. If you practice recognizing the trait behind each item, you can have an influence on your score.
