Graduate Reasoning Test (GRT1)

What the Graduate Reasoning Test measures

Our Graduate Reasoning Test (GRT1) assesses high level reasoning ability. Suited to graduate level and management level employees, this assessment consists of three sections - Verbal Reasoning, Numerical Reasoning and Abstract Reasoning which can be administered together or individually.


The GRT1 is able to provide a comprehensive assessment of high level mental ability.
