Free Aon Assessment Practice Test

Free Aon Assessment Practice Questions [cut-e]

Aon’s cut-e tests can be divided into four groups: Aptitude Tests, Special Knowledge & Skills Tests, Logic Tests, and Behavioral Assessments. Their most notorious test is the cut-e pilot test. It's important to notice that the cut-e tests are taken in the MapTQ Online Platform. 

On this page, you will find preparation for all of these topics: Math Reasoning questions (scales numerical, scales eql), Verbal Reasoning questions (scales verbal), Special Knowledge and Skills questions (scales tmt, sacles nav, sacles cmo), Logical Thinking questions (scales lst, scales sx, scales ix, scales clx, scales cls), and Behavioral questions (chat-assess SJT, squares integrity).

The numerical questions in the AON test require basic arithmetic skills, and the ability to deduct information from graphs and tables and combine multiple pieces of data while performing quick calculations and utilizing a calculator. The time for completing the numerical tasks is very short (18 questions in 6 minutes) – meaning that you will most likely won't answer all of the questions - and practice is essential to increase the number of answered questions.

Aon Aptitude Sample Questions [cut-e]


AON [cut-e] Numerical Reasoning Sample Questions


Scales numerical Sample Questions

The Scales Numerical test uses the six tabs structure. In order to answer each question, you need to find which tab is relevant to what is being asked, and then locate the answer. For example, if the statement is about expenses, the correct tab would be "Operating Expenses".

Let's go over how to solve a scales Numerical question:

Question1 - 

While 11% of Flying Colours stores are located in France, just 9% of the stores are located in the United States.

  1. True
  2. False
  3. Cannot Say


The word 'stores' implies that the answer to the question is in the 'Stores' tab. The pie chart presents the distribution of store locations across different countries.

We can see that 11% of the stores are, indeed, in France (the purple segment). However, 13% of stores are in the US (the green segment), not 9%. 

Therefore, the statement is FALSE.


Question 2

In FY 7, Flying Colours profited about 26,000 Euros from its women's department alone.

  1. True
  2. False
  3. Cannot Say


The word 'department' implies that the answer to this question is under the 'Departments' tab. the graph presents the varying share in profit for each of the different departments across a three-year period. 

Look at the graph. in FY 7 the women's department was responsible for 26% of the company's total profit. However, without the actual, absolute profit the company made that year, we cannot determine how much these 26% really are.

Since this crucial piece of information is missing, we cannot say whether this statement is true or false. 


Question 3- 

While Flying Colours' sales increased during the second quarter of financial year 1, they decreased during the fourth quarter of that financial year.

  1. True
  2. False
  3. Cannot Say


The word 'sales' implies that the answer to this question is under the 'Sales' tab. The graph presents the sales volume per quarter across a three-year period. 

The graph for FY 1 is coloured in blue. We can see that the graph increases towards the second quarter (from 3.15 to 3.53), so the first part of the statement is true. However, the blue line increases towards the fourth quarter as well (from 3.14 to 3.55). This is the exact opposite of the trend suggested in the second half of the statement. 

We can therefore conclude the statement is FALSE.

Scales eql Sample Question

The format of the questions featured on this test is simple: An equation where the result and operators have been determined, but the other terms are left blank. Your task is to fill in the blanks using digits from 1 through 9, with each digit being used no more than once, in order to turn the equation into a true statement.

Let's review an example:

aon cut-e scales eql example


Applying BODMAS rules, we should start with multiplication. The quotient of the first two digits has to be lower than 14, as we will need to add more digits later. 

In determining the most prudent digits to use for these positions, we can take advantage of the unique properties of the number 1, enabling us to twin it with a high number. For example, we can choose 9, and divide it by 1 to arrive at 9 - a number close enough to our predefined result that simple addition can get us to it. 

9 + x + y = 14

Next, we will use inverse operations on both sides of the equation to simplify it:

x + y = 5.

All that remains is to find an appropriate combination for X and Y. One possible combination is: (3, 2).

Therefore, a possible solution is: (9, 1, 3, 2)

Other possible solutions: (8, 4, 9, 3), (5, 1, 6, 3).


Aon Test Tip: The scales numerical and scales eql questions represent the mathematical portion of the AON assessments. While the scales eql is straightforward and requires calculation skills, the numerical scales are highly challenging – and require you the ability to quickly navigate through different graphs and tables, collect and analyze data, and finally solve it. Different methods work for candidates – some prefer to quickly scan the data, so they can answer questions quickly without revising it every time, while others prefer to answer according to each question – not to waste time on irrelevant data. Since the time limit in both tests is extremely short (about 20 seconds per question) – you should also learn how to quickly scan questions, skip difficult questions and answer according to the minimal amount of data required.

The best way to prepare for the test is specific practice for the unique scale questions while reading guides to refine your arithmetic knowledge and use calculators under time pressure. Full tests to be taken in the actual assessment’s time limit, including unique data for different positions, along with guides, can be found in our AON PrepPack.


Now let’s continue to the next portion of the aptitude test – the scales verbal questions. These questions require verbal skills, reading comprehension, inference from the text, collecting written data, and more. Just like the numerical scales – the time limit is very short and requires fast reading, collecting data, and working under pressure. Let’s continue to the verbal questions. 

Cut-e Verbal Sample Questions


Scales Verbal Sample Questions


The following six passages are to be used in answering the five questions that appear beneath them. The challenge, therefore, is twofold: for each question, you must first intuit the passage most likely to hold the solution, and then use it to answer the question. The key to succeeding is to "lock down" the correct passage in as little time as possible, giving you ample time to find the information you need.

Question1 - 

Flying Colours tries to maintain uniform campaigns and undeviating collections across its locations.

  1. True
  2. False
  3. Cannot Say


Although none of the words or phrases in the statement seem to suggest a specific tab, by reading the statement as a whole we can gather that it relates to business strategy, and the most relevant tab would be 'Business Plan'. 

The most relevant section of the tab seems to be 'International Expansion', as it relates to the company's "different locations", mentioned in the statement. 

According to the text, "Flying Colours offers several specific collections tailored for every country, as well as country-specific marketing campaigns". This contradicts the statement, which means that it is FALSE.

Note that the use of the phrase "across its locations" could throw us off and lead us to the 'geographic positioning tab first. This should not be too time-consuming, as we would quickly see that this tab does not contain information regarding the company's collections, and a search for further information in the other tabs would bring us to the same conclusion.


Question 2

John Summers got his doctorate in design from the University of Manchester.

  1. True
  2. False
  3. Cannot Say


The mention of a person's name should automatically direct us to the 'Board of Directors' tab, as this is the only tab that offers information regarding personal history and qualifications.

The relevant section can only be 'Dr. John Summers', as he is the only one mentioned in the statement. According to the text, Dr. Summers is a certified designer and received a Ph.D. from the University of Manchester. However, we must avoid automatically linking the two, as the text makes no such connection. We have no way of ascertaining whether Dr. Summers' Ph.D. from the University of Manchester is indeed in design.

Therefore, the answer is CANNOT SAY.


Question 3- 

Flying Colours has only one marketing department.

  1. True
  2. False
  3. Cannot Say


None of the words or phrases in the statement seem to suggest a specific tab, but by reading the statement as a whole we can gather that it addresses the company's structure, which is detailed in the 'Corporate Scheme' tab.

The only section of the tab mentioning the company's marketing department is the opening sentence, which states: "The four of them (product divisions) operate with a unified marketing department". 

Given that the company consists only of these four divisions, the statement is TRUE.

AON Score Tip – You might be asking yourself by now, how do I reach a high score on the AON test? The Numerical and Verbal questions must be answered under a challenging time limit, with about 20 seconds for each question – and we haven’t even covered half of the test. The more you practice the test under stress, you improve your skills and ability to utilise techniques and solve problems in less time. Find precise simulation tests with hundreds of aptitude questions, divided into different positions (Finance, Industry, and Consumer) just like the real test, to be practiced with specific solving techniques summarised by our AON experts in the real-time required in the test in our AON PrepPack.

The verbal scale questions are similar in format to the numerical questions and require quick reading, interpretation of data, summarisation skills, and working under pressure. We recommend reading both books and articles to improve basic reading comprehension skills, but also a specific practice of the AON verbal questions.

Next, we will examine new question types– Special Knowledge and Skills. These questions vary in the abilities required – such as calculating capacity, reaction time, sense of direction, and more.


Aon Special Knowledge and Skills Sample Questions


Scales tmt Sample Questions (calculating capacity)


This is an applied numeracy test that assesses your skills in percentages calculations translation, translation of units, and calculation of areas and spaces.

Try to solve the following:

Question 1 -

A train travels 90 miles in 15 minutes. How many miles does it travel in 2 hours?

  1. 542
  2. 720
  3. 789
  4. 800
  5. 942
  6. None of These


15 minutes are a 1/4 of an hour. To reach 2 hours from a 1/4 of an hour, we need to multiply by 8. Since the time is multiplied by 8, we also multiply the distance traveled by 8:

90*8 = 720 miles


Scales rt Sample Questions (Reaction Time)


Question 2 -

Quickly determine whether the figures are identical or not. In the test – press the space key if identical and do nothing if they do not.



As can be seen – the first pair is identical, while the second pair is not. While this question type seems rather easy, the test includes tens of pairs, and each answer must be decided in a second – making the overall test very challenging. As the test progresses, you may become tired, and mistakes may shake your confidence. Practicing and keeping composure even if mistakes are made are key to success in those questions.


Scales nav Sample Questions (Sense of Direction)

Question 3 -

Choose the movement direction according to the previous movement and the current arrow. Note that the movement is to the right, left, up, or down, while the maneuver is from the driver’s perspective.

Initial movement: 


Select the correct driving manoeuvre, according to:



Answer Options:



The correct answer is:


The previous direction was UP, and the current direction is RIGHT. Thus, the correct answer is RIGHT TURN.

Question 4 -

Select the correct driving manoeuvre, according to:


Answer Options:



The correct answer is:


The previous direction was RIGHT, and the current direction is RIGHT. Thus, the correct answer is KEEP STRAIGHT.

Scales cmo Sample Question (Monitoring Ability)

Question 5 -

How many objects do you see?

  1. 6
  2. 7
  3. 8
  4. 9
  5. 10


The correct answer is 2 (7 objects).
Look carefully at the circle and quickly determine the number of objects when they do not overlap. Note that in the real test – you have a very short time to answer as many questions as possible – therefore, you should answer quickly and move forward.


Aon Test Tip: Special Knowledge and Skills require a broad set of abilities – from fast calculations (which resemble the numerical questions) to spatial orientation, quick decision-making, and more. These questions may not be all introduced in every AON assessment, as they represent skills required for different positions. However – learning the format, special solving tips for improving your score, and practising different questions in narrow time limits, just like the real test, are the key to success.

The different questions presented in the AON cut-e assessment (Numerical, Verbal, Logic, and Special Knowledge and Skills) are different from other assessments and aptitude tests. Moreover, the main challenge of all questions in the AON assessment is the time limit – and the challenge presented from quickly gathering information, understanding a drill, and solving questions – in times that most wouldn’t allow answering even half the questions. For a price starting at 39$ , you can get comprehensive preparation, including guides, practice tests, and full simulations – which will increase your answering efficiency and pace and allow you to optimise your chances before the test. All of that can be found in our AON PrepPack.

The next part of our AON cut-e Free Test is the Logical Abilities. Those questions also vary in their format, and they assess both inductive and deductive abilities, as well as abstract abilities. You must be able to follow specific instructions and apply logic to succeed in these questions – which many find more challenging than previous scenarios. Let’s continue with the logical questions.

Aon (Cut-e) Logic Thinking Sample Questions


Scales lst Sample Questions

 In these questions, you will be presented with a 4x4 grid. Your task is to correctly identify which shape, out of four options, can replace the question mark such that the following rules are kept:

  • Each shape can only appear once in a given column.
  • Each shape can only appear once in a given row.

There is only one correct answer per question.

Question 1-

aon scales lst example


Answer Options:






The shape missing from the third row is the X.

Error loading Partial View script (file: ~/Views/MacroPartials/Picture.cshtml)

Therefore, the correct answer is :

Error loading Partial View script (file: ~/Views/MacroPartials/Picture.cshtml)



Question 2-

aon scales lst example

Answer Options:







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 :

scales ix Sample Questions


Each scales ix question consists of nine similar images. All but one follow a pattern or a rule, and your task is to deduce that rule and select the one image that does not comply with it.

Question 3 -

Please mark the object that doesn't fit the rule.










The correct answer is object #5.

All objects conform to the following rule (regardless of their order): Each object contains a 4-sided polygon.
The only object that does not fit this rule is object #5, which contains a 5-sided polygon.

Note: The alternations in the polygons’ colour (black, grey, white, grey, black…) are kept throughout the entire series, and thus cannot be the key to solving the question; they only serve as a distraction.


Question 4- 

Please mark the object that doesn't fit the rule.










The correct answer is object #3.

All objects conform to the following rule (regardless of their order): Each object contains at least one horizontal rectangle.
The only object that does not fit this rule is object #3, which only contains vertical rectangles.

Note: The variations in the rectangles’ colour and location serve as a distraction; the only thing that matters is whether or not there is a horizontal rectangle.

Aon/cut-e Scales clx Sample Question (Inductive)


Scales clx questions require you to examine a pair of shape grids, figuring out what rule or pattern characterizes both of them. Then, using this discovery, you must select the two shape grids out of the answers panel that follows the same rule.

There are two correct answers per question.

Which two of these grids follow the same rule?

Aon cut-e scales clx example


The rules are as follows:

  • The upper row and the lower row contain the same kind of shapes.
  • In the middle row, each slot contains a different kind of shape. Their order is irrelevant.

Therefore, grids 1 and 4 are the only grids that follow the rules.


Scales cls Sample Question (Inductive)


Each task in the scales cls test 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 a colour according to the group it belongs to orange (above the table) or violet (below the table).

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.

Question 6-

Assign the correct market (orange or violet) to each of the bottom four tables

aon cut-e scales cls example

Pattern: All tables with marking below (violet) have N's in the 5 places that are not the 4 corners. The tables with the marking above (orange) do not.

The correct markings, from left to right, are therefore: Orange, violet, orange, violet.

AON/cut-e scales sx Sample Questions (SwitchChallenge)

SwitchChallenge is one of the gamified tests comprising the SmartPredict assessment. In the following question, choose the sequence that represents the new position of each of the shapes from the bottom of the operator to the bottom.

aon cut-e switchchallenge example

First, take note of the position of each of the input shapes; they are numbered from left to right (1-4).

1 - Diamond   2 - Hexagon   3 - Triangle   4 - Star

Look at the answers (the operators): Starting with the left one, let's look at the first digit.

Figure out whether the shape in the first position of the output sequence is in the position indicated by this digit in the input sequence.
If it is not, eliminate that answer.

In this example, the first operator begins with the digit 4, which would make the output figure in the leftmost position a star. Since that is not the case, this cannot be the answer.

Go through the first digits of the rest of the answers and eliminate or keep them as you go.

If you are left with more than one possible answer, keep using this method with the rest of the digits in each answer.
Eliminate answers as you go according to the information you gathered.

In this example, we are left with our answer after two rounds of elimination: (1, 3, 2, 4).

Aon Test Tip: The logical abilities portion of the AON assessment contains different questions that assess inductive, deductive, and spatial abilities. These skills are measured through unique measures – using figures, patterns, special applied rules, and more. Like previous parts of the test – the time limit is very narrow for the logical questions – sometimes having no set number of questions, but only as many answers as possible in each time. Practice tests and guides for all the different logical tests, with additional logical practice questions, can be found in our AON PrepPack.

Congratulations! You have completed the Scales (cognitive) part of our AON cut-e Free Test. However, for most candidates, the test is far from over. The next portion of the test is the behavioral (Situational Judgement) ChatAssess questions, as well as the personality Squares Integrity questions. These questions are unique as there isn’t always one correct answer, or at least not without applying special techniques and understanding AON’s values which are measured through these questions. Let’s continue with the questions:

Aon Behavioral Tests Sample Questions


Aon chatAssess

Question 1 - 

There are new policies regarding safety in the office. All personnel must take an online course on the company website, and then take a safety regulations test at a designated time and place. You are responsible for administering and collecting the exams in your office.
What would you do first?

  1. Read the instructions and regulations regarding the test administration.
  2. Circulate an email with the instructions for the test so that your office can start preparing.
  3. Talk to IT about potential network problems that could occur during the test.
  4. Schedule the room in which the test should be administrated.

Best response: A

In general, it is good practice to understand the goals and principles guiding a task before trying to accomplish it. This is a common theme in SJT questions (ChatAssess) and in personality tests in general, and you should always ask yourself if you fully understand a task before trying to accomplish it.

By reading the instructions and regulations first, you can fully understand how to administer the exam. Choosing this response demonstrates your ability to prioritise tasks and define action plans— this being a good indication of your decision-making and organizational skills.

Additional Responses:

  1. This could be a good thing to do, as it enables the staff to familiarise themselves with the test instructions and gives them plenty of time to prepare for the test. However, you need to choose the best first response. Sending the instructions before reading them yourself is definitely not the first task to take. As the administrator of the test, you are required to know more about the test than anyone else. You, therefore, need to familiarise yourself with the instructions and make sure they are clear to you prior to distributing them to the staff.
  2. Talking to IT seems like a responsible thing to do, but it is hardly the first response you should take. You should first read the test instructions to see what the test entails, and only then raise any potential problems with the IT department.
  3. It is obvious that you will eventually need to schedule a room to administer the test. However, you first need to know if there are special instructions and regulations for this action. Only by reading the instructions first can you determine where and how to administer the exam.

 Aon squares Integrity Test


Every question on this page thus far has required you to identify a correct answer out of a set of distractors. The squares integrity test is a change of pace, as none of the answers are right or wrong. The test works best when answered honestly.

You will be presented with a statement and asked to rate the degree to which you feel it describes you accurately. Because the test is timed, it is advisable not to think too long about any particular answer but rather to select the choice you instinctively feel is best. Don't try to answer as you believe your potential employer would like you to, as the test can detect falseness. 

Here is an example of what you may see on the squares test:

aon squares test example
This statement refers to the Empathetic trait.
Empathetic people are great teammates and caregivers and usually are a great asset to every team. They bring the best out of their team members and create a better and more trustworthy environment. Therefore, this statement should be ranked high on the scale.
