AmCham Scholarship 2016 – About the Ability Test

1. Content
The Ability Test – conducted by our sponsor Talentnet Corporation – is based on the internationally standardized SHL Test, which includes 2 parts:

a. Verbal Critical Reasoning
The Verbal Critical Reasoning tests are designed to measure the ability to evaluate the logic of various kinds of argument. They differ from many traditional types of verbal aptitude tests in that they seek to measure the application of ability in a realistic context. Consequently, they tend to be more specific than other forms of verbal aptitude test, and performance may be influenced by experience or learning, typically that encountered in higher education. Their specific nature, however, does increase perceived relevance, both to users and to candidates.

b. Numerical Critical Reasoning
The Numerical Critical Reasoning tests are designed to measure the ability to make correct decisions of inferences form numerical or statistical data. Clearly related to various numerical aptitudes, the tests are intended to measure candidates’ ability to cope with figures in a practical and realistic context. As with the verbal critical reasoning tests, the applied nature of these tests means that performance on the tests (reflecting ability) may be influenced by experience or learning. Once again, the context of the data presented adds to the high perceived relevance of the tests.

2. Then, how to show your best in this round?
a. The days before
– Visit the test site one or two days before the test day if you can.
– Read quality authors, journals and newspapers beforehand. Check out the logic in articles with a friend.
– Do some numerical work to practice before hand if you are rusty.
– Get to bed early the night before the test – if you want to feel at your best!
– Remind yourself that this is only one part of the selection or development procedure. Most people feel a little nervous – this is entirely natural.
b. On the test date
– Arrive early at the test site – there’s nothing worse than rushing at the last minute.
– If you wear glasses, make sure you take them with you.
– Make sure you are comfortable before you start – avoid being hungry, thirsty or needing to use the restroom.
– Listen carefully to all the instructions. If you are not sure about anything, please do ASK.
– Remember that each test is timed, so work as quickly and accurately as you can.
c. During the test
– Don’t get bogged down – if you find a question difficult, forget about it and move on, you can always come back to it later.
– Approach each test and exercise positively. If you didn’t enjoy one activity, put it out of your mind and tackle the next task optimistically.

Good Luck!
