Is there a pattern emerging in what type of questions
I get wrong?
If a particular type of question recurs then it makes sense to
spend additional time making sure that you are comfortable with
these questions. Don’t assume that you can pass without
learning how to answer that sort of question.
Is there a pattern emerging in where I get questions
If you make more mistakes near the start of your practice
session then this could be a consequence of nerves and taking
time to settle down.You need to work on focusing 100% as soon
as you start the test. If you make more mistakes near the end of
your practice session then this could be a result of losing concen-
tration or rushing the last few questions. Practise pacing
yourself. You need to learn to work steadily, and in a high state
of mental alertness, throughout an entire test.
Were there particular types of numerical reasoning
questions that I guessed?
This may be a sign that you need to go back to basics. If you
are guessing questions involving percentages then you need to
learn the basics of how percentages work. Do this before
attempting any more practice questions.
I’m not getting any better . . .

yourself – remember that your
improvement will occur gradually,
not after just one practice session.
You’ll only get better if you learn
from your mistakes, though, so
reflect upon the following questions.
your improvement will
occur gradually, not
after just one practice
