Numerical Comprehension

Everything you need to know

Designed to test an individual’s ability to extract key numerical information and data trends from charts and tables with the aid of a calculator. Candidates are presented with a variety of question styles including true or false statements and multiple choice questions. At all levels candidates are required to review data and make a prediction or perform mathematical calculations from the data presented. At Core and Professional levels the complexity of the data is increased, along with attention to detail becoming critical to calculations.

Candidates are presented with 15 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.

Fundamental

In this test candidates are required to interpret a chart or table and perform a simple calculation based on data which can be directly referenced.

A candidate taking the Fundamental level of a test is expected to have subject knowledge aligned to a foundation level GCSE graduate.

Core

In this test candidates are required to review and interpret a chart(s) or table(s) and perform a multiple stage calculation or short term forecast on data spread across a chart(s) or table(s).

A candidate taking the Core level of a test is expected to have subject knowledge aligned to a higher level GCSE graduate.

Professional

In this test candidates are required to interpret data gathered from multiple charts or tables and combine this information to perform a multiple stage calculation or long term forecast on data spread across charts or tables. This test builds on Core by increasing the quantity of data for interpretation and the complexity of the data presented.

A candidate taking the Professional level of a test is expected to have subject knowledge aligned to an A-Level graduate.
