BHS,

With your degree you should have no problem. Relax and enjoy the sunshine.

Hi Grant
thank you very much Grant. You know I always try to go a bit further ahead from where I stand. Do you have any idea of the type of questions I will be facing on the first session? Have you done this test?
Thanks a lot anyway

B,

I haven't done the test.

From what's been written on various posts on T2W, mental aritmetic (ie without a calculator) is tested, eg 36 x 255 / 8. You have to answer these in a few seconds. Also mental puzzles, eg a white square contains a white circle and a black triangle, a second is a black square with a black a circle and black triangle, a third is a white square with a white circle and black triangle. You have to provide the fourth pattern (this isn't an actual example, simply the type of question you may need to solve).
