As VRTs are an effective test of problem-solving based around words and language many organisations use the tests as part of their selection process for employees. It is well worth acquiring the techniques for successful verbal reasoning at a young age.

What is vital is that they learn why an answer is Incorrect and the technique required to improve. Minerva’s tutors are available to help pupils improve their technique on Verbal Reasoning Tests. Tuition can also be provided for Non-Verbal Reasoning Tests which also frequently form part of school entrance assessments.
