Non-Verbal Reasoning is the ability to solve problems without the requirement of language.

Skills include recognising ways in which shapes and diagrams can be manipulated by, for example, changing their size, direction and pattern, and using this to identify an ‘odd-one-out’ or predict the next pattern in a logical series.

As a limited number of schools require children to sit a Non-Verbal Reasoning exam, we do not include it in our regular scheme of learning. Instead, we offer a separate course in the Easter holidays.

The schools that have included Non-Verbal Reasoning in their exams recently include :

Buckinghamshire County Council schools, Slough Consortium schools, Haberdashers Boys’, City of London Boys’, Mill Hill County, St Paul’s Girls’ and St Michael’s Catholic Grammar.

This list is a guide only. You should check the schools in which you are interested.

What will the course cover?

In  4 x 2.5 hour sessions:

  • Familiarisation with types of NVR assessments.
  • Strategies on several types of visual problem solving.
  • Short practice exercises with instant feedback.
  • Hints and Tips for exam technique.
  • A final exam which will be marked and returned.
  • Workbooks for the children to keep.
