I took the Citi Logical test, not knowing what the structure would be like. I did find it tougher than conventional PSL/SHL tests.

I’ve applied to technology as well. Took the test last Monday but no numerical invite as yet. Anyone in the same boat?

For those who haven’t sat it yet, the structure is as follows. There are 12 questions, each timed at 75 seconds each. You have to find the missing symbol combination in a grid of 9 (3x3) transitions - 14 possible solutions are available for each question.

I received a PM not too long ago, but thought I should post my reply here anyway

What makes Citi’s online test difficult is the structure itself and not the way in which the logical symbols are manipulated. If you wish to know how the symbols manipulate, look at www.shl.com or www.psl.com for practice tests.

The 3x3 grid that I mentioned works in the same way as all the other logic tests on the web. The only difference is that the pattern might be identifiable from “left to right” or “top to bottom”.

Eg.

Triangle Square Pentagon

or

Triangle

Square

Pentagon

Obviously if one symbol is missing in a 3x3 grid, that means there is always two complete transitions which you can use to deduce the missing symbol.

e.g.

Pattern 1 Pattern 2 Pattern 3

Pattern 1 *Missing* Pattern 3

Pattern 1 Pattern 2 Pattern 3

Its all about using your time carefully. I would strongly advise using a piece of paper and a pen to determine your answer as you go along as you will then have to find the solution amongst 14 possibilities - This means you can forget about guessing an answer. You have 75 seconds to deal with each question, so try to stay calm.

Good luck.

This is all I will say. Distributing screenshots of the real test would be making a complete mockery of Citi’s recruitment process. Questions can sometimes repeat themselves and frankly this gives a rather unfair advantage towards others.
