What you'll learn
Non-Verbal Reasoning focuses heavily on the child’s ability to solve problems around shapes, pictures and diagrams. This will involve skills where your child will need to identify and figure out sequences, patterns, breaking the code as well as recognising similar and different shapes.
These different types of questions help to understand your child’s critical thinking abilities alongside using logic and mathematics to solve problems. Similar to the Verbal Reasoning course and tests, this whole section is aimed at understanding the child’s skill rather than what they have learned.
This means that there is a huge potential and chance for a range of questions and types to come up in the exams, and the best route is to equip your child with the ability to adapt to any question. Non-verbal reasoning questions will generally be based around mathematical concepts such as symmetry, rotation, mirroring, shape, size and direction, as well as involving diagrams.
Its vital that your child has a good grasp and exposure to these concepts but not forgetting core Maths skills such as addition, subtraction and times tables. These core skills will support their wider learning and understanding.
Another key skill that will be definitely tested is that of spatial awareness. Its important for your child to be able to visually read and interpret shapes and forms for example, understanding the relation of objects around a center point and what happens to an object or thing if it were to change position.
For those whom this skill doesn’t come naturally to, a systematic approach will help logically think through solutions and eliminate solutions which don’t fit the bill.
At Gaggle Academy, similar to our Verbal Reasoning course, we aim to provide maximum exposure to all these topic areas including systematic and basic explanations for your child on how to come to a solution. By gradually teaching your child with processes and methods, whilst exposing them to real world problems they may come across under time pressure, can they then get familiar with the most efficient and the right approach.
The Non-Verbal Reasoning test are heavily geared to your child’s ability to critically and logically think when presented with a problem, thereafter, coming to an efficient solution.
