Numerical tests weakness


#1

I have not done maths since GCSE and I am applying for Oil and Energy graduate schemes. I have all of the qualifications needed to get in and I am finding filling everything out easy up to the numerical reasoning test which I feel that I am terrible on. I just panic as the clock ticks down and it is not the actual maths that is difficult but using the right method of answering the questions. Would anyone be able to offer any advice on the best method of doing well on these tests? I am sure I have just failed my Shell test, the actual questions seemed a lot more difficult than the practice tests I have.

Practice, practice, and practice somemore…

There are websites such as Assessment Day, Efinancial Careers and SHL (and more) that offer mock tests and also offer the full package (at a fee of course). The questions and answers will be given to you, all you need to do is work out how they arrived at those answers…
