a. Sainsbury’s Numerical Reasoning Test
In this Sainsbury’s aptitude test, you will be presented with a few passages with tables, charts and other types of data presentation, and will be required to quickly analyse the information given and answer questions.
Do not worry if you have not done maths in a while! All you need is a quick recap of basic GCSE calculations, such as ratios, percentages and reading data off charts. Sainsbury’s numerical reasoning test is difficult – not because of the knowledge tested, but because of the time pressure and stress involved.
Tip 4: You need to manage your stress and time pressure. The most successful way to achieve this is through numerical test practice in a safe environment, before your real aptitude assessment. Most candidates fail because they cannot manage their time properly.

b. Sainsbury’s Verbal Reasoning Test
This test examines a candidate’s ability to accurately extract relevant information from a previously unseen passage of text; it involves critically analysing statements and deciding which of them are true, false – or whether this is impossible to say based on the information contained in the passage of text.
Verbal reasoning tests tend to be more difficult for non-native English speakers, but what we would recommend is that everyone practices verbal reasoning test questions as much as possible, as this allows them to understand the specific ways in which texts are structured – and precisely what the questions are asking for. The verbal reasoning test does not use logic in the same way that a numerical or logical test would. This is why practice is important.
Tip 5: Always read the whole passage before attempting the question. Do not jump to conclusions about whether the statement is true or false until you have carefully examined the statement, and found sufficient evidence in the passage to support your claims.
