The Cognitive Aptitude Test comprises verbal, numerical, spatial and abstract reasoning questions. The resulting score reflects a person’s ability to solve problems, extract and apply information, learn new skills and think critically. A person with high aptitude is more likely to be a quick learner and high performer than a person with low aptitude.
