Arithmetic

Everything you need to know

Designed to test an individual’s mental arithmetic ability. Candidates are presented with short mathematical problems and are required to type the answer. Candidates do not require a calculator. All levels contain questions relating to: decimals, fractions, whole numbers, percentages and time. The Fundamental level, tests a candidate’s ability to do simple calculations. At Core and Professional, the difficulty is increased by raising the complexity of the numbers used.

Candidates are presented with 30 questions to complete in 15 minutes. The candidate’s responses are automatically marked and a point is awarded for each correctly answered question. Skipped questions or those that are not taken will result in no point being awarded.
