Some of the most common test types include Rolls-Royce’s:
A. Rolls-Royce Numerical Reasoning Test
Since working at Rolls-Royce will require you to use numerical skills and ability to interpret data from tables and charts, the Rolls-Royce Numerical Reasoning Test will examine your ability to understand a previously unseen passage – as well as its data. You will be required to perform basic GCSE Maths calculations.
Do not worry if you have not done Maths in a while! The complexity of this does not lie in the knowledge tested but in the time pressure and stress involved. When taking your numerical reasoning test, you will have less than a minute to read the question, analyse data provided and perform the necessary calculations.
Tip: The only way to succeed is to take practice tests beforehand. This way you familiarise yourself with the types of questions and become more confident. Learn how to manage your stress in a safe environment and you will not have to face rejection – just because you were unfamiliar with the process.

B. Rolls-Royce Verbal Reasoning Test
In the same way numerical reasoning test examines how confident a candidate is in his numerical calculations, Rolls-Royce’s Verbal Reasoning Test strives to identify whether a candidate can accurately extract the relevant information from a previously unseen passage of text. The candidate is then required to use this information to analyse whether subsequent statements are true, false, or impossible to say based on the information contained in the passage of text.

C. Rolls-Royce Logical Reasoning Test
Rolls-Royce’s Logical Reasoning Test, often referred to as a Diagrammatic or Inductive Test, will expose you to 5 diagrams with varying shapes and ask you to identify the right pattern and indicate what comes next in the sequence.
What makes the Rolls-Royce Logical Reasoning Test difficult is that there is no limit to how abstract these patterns and trends can be. They will usually evolve around the size, arrangement, movements and colours of two and three-dimensional shapes.
Tip: Some examples will involve patterns that reflect changes in more than one of the categories mentioned above.
The only way you can prepare for the logical reasoning test, is to practice the sample questions. By doing so, you will familiarise yourself with some of the most common questions types, become more comfortable and get used to thinking under time pressure.
