What are SHL tests?
CEB/SHL (Now Gartner) is a leading international psychometric test agency based in the UK. A lot of to Companies and Global organisations use SHL styled tests as part of their recruitment processes. Examples of such companies includes, PWC, Air France, World bank among others…

SHL Aptitude Test Format
SHL Aptitude test style varies from one company to another, and it also depends on the role the company is recruiting for. For example, you could take a Mechanical reasoning test if the job role requires basic engineering skills.

What is the difference between the number of flights carrying ≥ 4 tonnes of cargo
in February compared to May?
Total greater than 4 tonnes in: February = 149 + 93 + 49 = 291
May = 209 + 120 + 95 = 424
424 – 291 = 133
What is the ratio of aircraft with cargoes of ≥ 8 tonnes in April compared to May?
Aircraft carrying greater than 8 tonnes in: April : May
87 : 95
95 / 87 = 1.09
What proportion of planes in March contained caroges of 3.99 or less?
Total planes in March = 570
Planes carrrying less than or equal to 3.99 tonnes = 127+127 = 254
254 / 570 x 100 = 44.6%
What was the percentage change in the number of flights with cargoes of ≥ 6
tonnes between February and March?
Planes with greater than or equal to 6 tonnes in: Feb = 93 + 49 = 142
March = 106 + 52 = 158
158 – 142 = 16
16 / 142 x 100 = 11.27%
Read the passage and answer the associated questions
There are 17 different rare earth elements in the periodic table, including yttrium, cerium and scandium. While these elements are not scarce – in fact, many of them are comparatively abundant – they are not often found in concentrations large enough to exploit economically. Where deposits sizeable enough to mine viably exist, they are called rare earth minerals, or simply rare earths. Rare earths are a small, but essential, ingredient in many electronic goods such as televisions and mobile phones and in clean technologies such as wind turbines and hybrid cars. As such, rare earth minerals are vital to the global economy and the growth of green technology.
Although in 1995 the USA produced an equal amount of rare earth minerals as China, today China produces 97% of the word’s rare earths. The reason other nations stopped was that mining rare earths is hugely detrimental to the environment, producing radioactive wastewater. As increasingly stringent environmental regulations drove up mining costs in the West, China achieved global dominance with low ore prices, albeit at a high cost to their environment.
In 2011, China announced that it was cutting its export quota for rare earths by 35%, maintaining that the move was to protect its environment. This limitation has caused ore prices to soar for technology companies in other nations, while giving Chinese technology manufacturers a clear advantage. The European Union, the USA and Japan have filed a complaint against China with the World Trade Organization. But changing Chinese policy is not a sustainable solution; it only has 30% of the world’s rare earth deposits. As demand grows, the challenge is for other nations to develop cleaner methods of mining. Another solution is to recycle rare earths from used technology.
China has a virtual monopoly on the rare earths market because it controls 97% of the world’s rare earth deposits.
C. Cannot Tell
False – while it is true that China has a monopoly on the rare earths market (97% as stated in the second paragraph) it only controls 30% of the world’s rare earth deposits (as stated in the third paragraph). Take care not to make careless mistakes – check the passage’s facts carefully.
The 17 rare earth elements are so called because of their scarcity in relation to other elements on the periodic table.
C. Cannot Tell
False – the first paragraph explains that what is rare about them is large concentrations suitable for viable mining.
The production of rare earth minerals is environmentally beneficial because they are used to produce clean technologies.
C. Cannot Tell
False – the second paragraph states “mining rare earths is hugely detrimental to the environment”.
China’s official environmental justification for reducing rare earths export quotas is a pretext for gaining competitive advantage and increased profit.
C. Cannot Tell
Cannot tell – this is a supposition. The passage states the reasons given by China and also describes the economic effects this has had. But it is not possible to determine whether the Chinese government had an ulterior motive from information in this passage
Lifting China’s export curb is not a viable long-term solution to the technology industry’s growing demand for rare earths.
C. Cannot Tell
True – demand for rare earths is growing, but China has a finite supply of the minerals.
Sample SHL Abstract Reasoning Aptitude Test Questions
Which of the suggested answers completes the sequence?
There are always 2 blue squares, 2 orange circles and 1 navy triangle.
Which of the suggested answers best matches the relationship between the shapes in the image?
The arrow changes direction and the shape on the right has 1 more side than its
counterpart on the left.
Which shape is the odd one out?
This question is asking you to identify a rule that applies to all but one shape. Things to
consider include what shapes are present, how many shapes are present, relative position, colour.
In this example, there are 2 consistent rules: the largest shape is consistently the same colour
and the shape closest to the bottom of each square is orange. There is only one square that the
latter rule doesn’t apply to.
Which domino comes next in the sequence?
This question is a bit trickier, as it is asking you to notice that there are two patterns
appearing at the same time with alternating dominos. If you consider the 1st, 3rd and 5th dominos,
the pattern becomes more obvious.
The top number is decreasing by 1 and the bottom is increasing by 1. Now look at the 2nd and 4th
dominos, there is a similar progression happening with increasing and decreasing dots.
Which tile belongs in the blank space?
The position of the orange circle within each tile is relative to the tiles’ position in the wider
image. Therefore the circle in the centre tile would be positioned in the middle of the tile. The
arrow is also rotating in an anti-clockwise direction as you move from left to right.
