Aon aptitude tests

Aon provide psychometric tests at most levels of position, ranging from the senior executive to entry level administration. As with most standard reasoning tests, Aon, using cut-e tests, assess your speed, accuracy and overall score during the course of an assessment day exam. We give a list here of the most commonly used Aon aptitude tests:

  • Cut-e Numerical: Aon uses Cut-e numerical tests. They appear in many different forms, testing different numerical abilities.
    • scales eql - Numeracy: This test assesses basic numeracy as you have to fill in the gaps with number to get the correct answer.
    • scales numerical (admin) - Numerical Reasoning: This test assesses numerical reasoning. One is presented with tables, lists and diagrams and must answer different questions with the information provided.
    • scales numerical (consumer) - Numerical Reasoning: This test assesses numerical reasoning. One is presented with tables, lists and diagrams and must answer different questions with the information provided.
    • scales numerical (finance) - Numerical Reasoning: This test assesses numerical reasoning. One is presented with complex tables, lists and diagrams and must answer different questions with the information provided.
    • scales numerical (industry) - Numerical Reasoning: This test assesses numerical reasoning. One is presented with complex tables, lists and diagrams and must answer different questions with the information provided.

  • Cut-e Logical: Aon uses Cut-e logical tests. They appear in many different forms, testing different logical abilities.
    • scales cls - Inductive This test assesses inductive reasoning. One is given six grids which contain numbers and letters. The numbers and letters denote whether the grid belongs to Set A or Set B.Your task is to then assign the four unknown figures to Set A or Set B based on these rules. We cover this in more detail below.
    • scales clx - Inductive: This test assesses inductive reasoning. One is given two tables of data and the candidate must work out the rules between the tables and assign them to new tables.
    • scales fx - Deductive: This test assesses deductive reasoning. One is presented with complex clauses and must deduce absolute conclusions from them.
    • scales ix - Inductive Thinking: This test assesses logical reasoning. One is presented with a series of images save one. A candidate must induce this given the patterns observed in the images.
    • scales lst - Deductive Thinking: This test assesses deductive reasoning. One is presented with serveral objects which all obey a rule by rows and columns. A candidate must discover those conclusions.
    • scales sx - Deductive Thinking: This test assesses deductive reasoning. The candidate must determine the correct operator to fit the concluded rule.

Aon Inductive-Logic (cls)

The most common abstract reasoning psychometric assessment from Aon is probably this one, the Inductive-Logic (cls).

Each question presents you with 10 figures. The figures are made up of a 3x3 grid, with each box of the grid containing either a letter or a number. Six of these have already been assigned a colour, either orange or blue, which we shall respectively call Set A or Set B.

The six grids have been assigned a colour based on the letters and numbers they share with other grids. All orange grids will contain some of the same characters as other orange grids. All blue grids will contain some of the same characters as other blue grids. There might only be as little as two or three characters which the grids share in order to be part of the same set. All other characters may be irrelevant distractors. Grids of the same set may be determined by rules, such as: containing four of a specific letter or number, containing a similar arrangement of the same letter or number, only containing odd or even numbers, containing a specific set of letters or numbers.

An example question is included below. Try your hand at deciphering the pattern for Set A and Set B, and then determining which of the unknown figures belong to which set.

Check below to see how many you got correct...

Here, we've highlighted what unites the figures in each Set and the patterns in the unknown figures.

Your task is to assign the remaining four grids to either Set A or Set B. The rules for assigning to Set A and Set B are reset with every question.

There are a total of 12 questions to answer in 12 minutes. As each question contains 4 figures, this makes for a total of 48 figures to assign to a set. On average, you have 15 seconds to determine which set it belongs to. Luckily, there are only two sets to pick from. All four figures could belong to Set A, or all four could belong to Set B, or any number could belong to one or the other, but NEVER both. This is a binary choice.

We have four of these practice tests which can be bought as either part of the Logical, Inductive or Bundle packs.

Inductive-Logic Practise Tests

To practise tests like Aon's inductive-logic cls, you can find them within our logical, inductive or bundle packs. The bundle pack contains all our tests and so is recommended to those with several assessments/applications.

Aon Deductive-Logic (lst)

Another favourite non-verbal test from Aon's scales psychometric suite is the Deductive-Logic (lst).

The principles are drawn from the classic sudoku. Rather than being presented with a 9x9 grid to fill out at a leisurely pace on your morning commute with the numbers 1 - 9 following a set of simple rules, instead the grids you will encounter here are, luckily, much smaller. This does not make these tests easy!

Each question presents you with either a 4x4 or a 5x5 grid. Some spaces in the grid will be occupied with shapes, others will be empty and one shall contain a question mark.

There are a few rules, similar to sudoku, which are explained to you beforehand. They are as follows:

  • Each column must contain one of each type of shape
  • Each row must contain one of each type of shape
  • Each column must not contain more than one of each type of shape
  • Each row must not contain more than one of each type of shape

Your task is to identify which shape should occupy the space of the question mark which also follows the rules laid out above. It's important to note that you do not need to solve every space in the grid to reach the answer. Some questions may be easy to spot the answer straight away, whereas others may require you to solve other empty spaces in the grid before you can determine the correct answer.

An example question is included below. Can you work out which shape from the five shown below must occupy the space of the question mark?

Scroll down to see if you identified the correct shape...

1) The question mark is found in the fourth column which also contains a square and a cross. A star may also be found in the same row as the question mark. This leaves two options as to which shape could occupy the space of the question mark: a circle or a triangle.

2) There aren’t many triangles present in the gird, nor are there any circles at all, which makes attempting to solve one of these shapes quite tricky. Instead, it’s important to spot that the top row is only missing one shape to be complete. This is a circle.

3) Now, with this extra piece of information we can place a circle in the space of the question mark. We can see that this is definitely not the correct answer as placing a circle here would break one of the rules.

4) It’s very clear that the correct answer must be a triangle. This is the only remaining option for our choice of shape.

There are an unknown number of questions to answer in a total of 6 minutes. There is no time limit per question. Once you have answered a question move on to the next one. Once you've answered a number of questions, the grid will become larger, up to a 5x5 grid. The questions shall also become progressively more difficult to answer, not solely due to the grid being larger. Remain calm and focused and do your best to correctly answer as many questions as you can before the time limit is reached.

There are 4 practice tests available, which can be found in either our Logical, Inductive, Deductive or Bundle packs.

Deductive-Logic Practise Tests

To practise tests like Aon's deductive-logical lst, you can find them within our logical, inductive, deductive or bundle packs. The bundle pack contains all our tests and so we recommend this if you have several assessments/applications.
