Understanding the CAT4 skills required

The CAT4 is like a four-headed Hydra of reasoning skills, testing your Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Spatial Reasoning.

  • Verbal Reasoning: Think word puzzles, analogies, and reading comprehension. Think of it as flexing your vocabulary muscles and critical thinking skills.
  • Non-Verbal Reasoning: This section is all about patterns, shapes, and visual logic. Imagine yourself as a detective, deciphering codes and unlocking mysteries with your eyes. ️‍♀️
  • Quantitative Reasoning: Get ready to dust off your math skills! Fractions, percentages, ratios, and problem-solving will be your allies in this numerical battlefield.
  • Spatial Reasoning: Time to unleash your inner architect! Imagine objects rotating, folding, and fitting together like pieces of a puzzle. Your 3D thinking skills will be key here. ️

Top cat4 test-taking strategies

  1. Practice makes perfect: Dive into CAT4 practice tests and books. The more familiar you are with the format and question types, the less surprised you’ll be on test day.
  2. Sharpen your skills: Each section requires specific skills. Work on building your vocabulary, visual thinking, math fluency, and spatial awareness through games, puzzles, and exercises.
  3. Stay calm and focused: Remember, the CAT4 is a marathon, not a sprint. Pace yourself, stay positive, and don’t panic if you get stuck on a question. Take deep breaths and move on.
  4. Trust your instincts: Sometimes, your first guess is the right one. Don’t overthink it if you feel confident about an answer.
  5. Remember, the CAT4 is not just about memorizing facts: it’s about how you think. Approach each question with a logical mind and a healthy dose of confidence. You’ve got this!

CAT4 Quantitative Reasoning test tips

Which skills does CAT4 assess?

Each of the eight CAT sections assesses a different set of reasoning skills. These are summarised below: firstly in terms of the four major aptitude tests for skills in numerical, verbal, spatial and non-verbal reasoning. Then secondly in terms of how the CAT4 also assesses the additional working memory and processing skills abilities – both of which are well- supported in the aptitude research theory and skills literature.

For example, the Quantitative Reasoning CAT4 section assesses CAT4 quantitative reasoning skills include understanding maths data and manipulating numerical data.

All CAT4 sub-sections measure:

  • Processing Speed which is a pupil’s skills at processing / responding to visual and auditory info.

Working Memory which is a pupil’s skills at holding / manipulating info within their individual short-term memory capacity.
