I wanted to ask a question and also share my experience regarding the Cut-e format of Abstract reasoning test.
It was a bit unusual format for me as it contained a group of alpha-numeric characters rather than usual series (sequences) of diagrams. E.g. there was a diamond shape that contained number and letters in certain positions, combinations or order. There were two groups of diamond shapes with these characters, one was marked with blue colour and the other was marked grey. The answer choices contained a set of 4 other diamond shapes - EACH these needed to be allocated to ONE of the groups above (either blue or grey).
I have to say it was not very difficult although I may have messed up the first few questions as I was adapting to the style. As a result, I am not 100% confident that I had passed
After having sat the test, I did some search and found that there are test preparation packs on this from test prep providers such as Graduatemonkey and Jobtesprep. I found that Graduatemonkey even provides tutorial ebook and videos on this.
My worry is that other people would have prepared better they knew exactly what the test format was so their scores would be higher - which means my score would not fall in the needed percentile ranking to be accepted. It is an engineering company that I applied for so I am anxious.
Could anyone advise of your own experiences with this specific test format (Cut-e Abstract reasoning test containing letters and numbers only)?
