Does anyone know what is UBS online test like? I need to take numerical reasoning and logical reasoning ones.
Are they difficult and where can I practice some?
Online UBS SHL Test
As more and more employers are utilizing online assessments, UBS has adapted its own pre-interview test for applicants to complete.
UBS describes the two part online assessment stage of the interview process. These tests are only used in certain geographies.
We use two types of online assessment tests. The UBS Cultural Appraiser gives realistic, hypothetical work scenarios to assess how well you align to our culture and values. Our numerical reasoning test asks you to solve mathematical problems in business scenarios.
Our users noted that the exams are not too difficult.
The tests aren't so much about your knowledge, but more about how well you can extract information. They test how quickly you can manipulate numbers and find the correct answer. A good place to study is: www.shl.com
Users shared that the test are similar to the numeric and verbal reason SHL exams. Details about those exams are provided below.
SHL Quantitative Exam
Our users explained their experiences with the exam below:
The basic quantitative skills exam focused on percentages, ratios, graphs, and the occasional exchange rate question.
The math part involves very basic math and drawing conclusions from graphs. Some of the questions involved converting one currency to another (picking the proper exchange rate to use off of some sort of chart). It reminded me of the easier SAT math type questions.
Correct Answers: B, B
SHL Verbal Exam
User @jgsim again explained:
The verbal section is a bit more difficult, but still quite easy. You read a short paragraph and then are asked a question about what was stated or implied in the paragraph. Most of the questions were very straightforward and basically, they just asked if a statement was true or not based on the reading. The statement was like a rewording of one sentence in the paragraph or something completely out of the blue (so, obviously a not true answer).
Correct Answers: True, False, Cannot Say, True
To practice more - users advise running through the practice exams on the CEB website.
