So I have been offered an internship with Rolls-Royce, they are creating the internship in safety for me as it has never been done before. I am extremely excited, however I now have to sit a couple of tests to ensure I am compatible to the company. One of the tests is a verbal reasoning test and so far I am pretty bad. Does anyone have any advice on how to improve my ability? I have 7 days before the tests need to be completed and am in the middle of writing my dissertation so the stress is on ! Any advice would be very helpful and much appreciated !

These reasoning tests are quite common with larger employers but here are two things to remember.

  1. It is a standard test given to everybody and the questions get harder, so you are not expected to get then all right. They just want an idea of what level you are at.
  2. If you practice you get better at them.

Practice, practice, practice!!  Go on line and see what you can find to practice on.  Do you know what aspect of it you find hard?  You can get books but I'm guessing you won't really have time to go out and get them.  Unfortunately I can't do internet searches at the moment or I would look a few websites  up for you that I used when doing NEBOSH Certificate training to help students get their heads around question answering techniques.  If you Google it you will find loads to get your teeth into.

Best of luck
