The section is divided into 9 data sets, each with four questions, making a total of 36 questions. Test-takers must choose the best of five answer choices.
The Quantitative Reasoning section will test your ability to solve numerical and data problems. Questions will test your ability to select relevant data from charts, graphs and tables, and to set up and solve numerical problems. You are expected to be able to do maths at a GCSE level, but the questions often have more to do with your problem solving abilities.
You can use a simple on-screen calculator during this section of the test, but you will find that you’ll often get through questions if you are prepared to work quickly and accurately with common formulae (eg: percentage change, mean, speed, etc).
