Girra doesn't place much emphasis on the reports, they focus mainly on the results of ur hast

The test is hard, yes. Don't know about the passages, writing prompt is either a persuasive or a narrative. Tips? (lol)

1. Practise some IQ tests online.
2. Do some maths problem solving/numerical reasoning.
3. Do some reading comprehension questions.

My mum bought me a HAST example booklet, this is what I got:
Abstract Reasoning
This is a multiple-choice test that measures your ability

to analyse information and solve problems using non-
verbal reasoning. You will be required to identify a pattern

shown in a sequence of diagrams. The pattern may need
to be continued or completed, or the diagrams may
need to be re-arranged to identify the middle object in a
sequence. The diagrams completing the pattern may have
a number of elements including size, shape, shading and
orientation, that need to be considered when deciphering
the pattern.
Information is presented in picture format using squares,
triangles, lines and graphical images.

Can you tell us anything about the other sections in the booklet, like maths or reading?
