Back to Student Life

Exactly a year ago today, I went to Koronadal City to hurdle an exam, it was the kind that puzzled me and shocked me real hard. The exam was very confusing as I am not very good at abstract reasoning. My non-verbal reasoning ability sucks big time, maybe because I have low IQ. Then, the second exam was psychological, there were 600 questions all of which were repeated over and over again. A question could be phrased differently from other questions with the same thought. That exam was for an admin aide post that the DOLE has opened. Obviously, I failed in that exam.


And now, the same post is open, and I have once again applied for the post. That is what makes me busy around this time, I am reviewing and reviewing real hard. Non-verbal, vocabulary, Math (which I hate the most) and a lot more.

I am even planning of getting myself a Raven test and an Otis-Lennon Test just for the same, check my IQ. There's this online non-verbal exam I took last week, and I scored only 7 out 20, but when I asked the 10 yr-old son to take it, I was surprised he got 11 out of the same set of tests. Does that mean my son has higher IQ than I do? I think so.

Well, please help me pray for this, and I assure you, I am doing my job of reviewing too, reading and reading and answering sample tests, as if I am back to student life.

Best of luck. I will surely pray for you.

I can give you a suggestion. Few time back I came across an IQ Test site with loads of PhD certified IQ tests and enjoyed a lot. Take the Complete IQ Test and find out your IQ.

I loved this site and the tests here has helped me a lot. You can check it once if it can help you in anyways.

Hi,
One of the most tried and tested ways at improving your score in non verbal reasoning exams is to practice, practice and more practice.
The problem we have found is that most sites only offer a limited range of papers (as they are very hard to write). But there is a site www.atestingtime.com that we have used that has unlimited tests for a fairly reasonable amount. We have our son do a 5-10 min test every day. His scores have improved dramatically over a period. It must be 'wiring the brain' to do them. Good luck!
