What is a Numeracy Skill Test?
The Numeracy Skill Test is designed to test an individual’s ability to determine the answer to numerical scenarios with the aid of a calculator.

Candidates are presented with a variety of question styles including true or false statements and multiple choice questions.

All levels contain questions relating to: averages, conversions, costings, decimals, fractions, percentages, ratios and time.

The Fundamental level involves performing simple calculations using a calculator. At Core and Professional levels, the difficulty is increased by raising the complexity of the mathematical scenarios and increasing the quantity of data required to achieve a result.

Candidates are presented with 12 questions to complete in 15 minutes. Responses are automatically marked and a point is awarded for each correctly answered question.
