What is The Wonderlic Scholastic Level Exam

The Wonderlic SLE Test is a cognitive assessment that includes 50 abstract, verbal, numerical and general knowledge questions that need to be answered in 12 minutes. Although some questions seem straightforward, with only 14 seconds on average to answer each question the test is very challenging.

40% Math (Numerical Reasoning) - number series, word problems, number patterns and more.
10% Logic (Abstract Reasoning) - 3D shapes, and pattern recognition, shape series and matrices.
10% General Knowledge and Other - general knowledge questions, as well as error identification questions and other clerical type questions.


There are two main versions of the Wonderlic Scholastic Level Exam:

The Wonderlic Scholastic Level Exam (SLE) - includes 50 questions with a 12 minute time limit (14 seconds per question)

The Wonderlic Scholastic Level Exam Quicktest (SLE-Q) - includes 30 questions with an 8 minute time limit (16 seconds per question)

Is the Wonderlic Scholastic Level Exam Hard?

The Wonderlic SLE exam is hard with only 5% of assessment test takers managing to finish every question. Wonderlic questions aren't hard to solve if you have an hour to spare, but answering 50 questions in 12 minutes can put your cognitive ability to the test.

It’s like running a 100-meter race; running a hundred meters isn’t hard, but if you add time to the equation it changes everything.

To answer 50 questions in 12 minutes you have to have the formulas already ingrained deeply in your mind; be very familiar with them, and easily recognize different types of questions and topics.

Have you ever solved a test, looked at the answers, and tried to redo it all over again? It was much easier, right?

The more you familiarize yourself with the material, the faster you will be able to solve problems on the real exam.
