About Spatial Reasoning Tests

What Are They

Spatial Reasoning Tests are used by employers to assess your ability to manipulate shapes, patterns or both. The majority of these tests require the candidate to move and rotate more than one shape mentally. Both two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes are common in these types of assignment and you should expect to swap between the two. Many professions involving Architecture, Engineering, Science & Mathematics require the ability to perform these complex tasks quickly and accurately. Although we all have our unique skills, anyone can practise and improve their Spatial Reasoning ability.

Practise With Us

We have specially designed our spatial reasoning tests to aid the development of your Spatial Reasoning ability and mimic the skills required to pass Spatial Reasoning exams. Our tests have an abundance of different types of questions involving shape rotation and pattern matching. Below we have listed a few of the tests we have developed to improve your Spatial Reasoning skills.

Here are some of the questions we may ask you:

Arranging Objects (easy difficulty)

Spatial Reasoning Block 1 Spatial Reasoning Block 2 Spatial Reasoning Block 3 Spatial Reasoning Block 4

It is important than you can manipulate objects. This question is designed to improve this skill. If you were to take the 4 objects to the left, would you be able to correctly identify the object that is created when placing the 4 objects into a cube shape? The varying colours and time limits ensure that you can work quickly and accurately.

Rotate 3D Objects (medium difficulty)

The 3D cube to the left will be presented. You will have 4 answers of which 1 will be the same 3D cube but from a different angle. You need to be able to identify which of the answers is correct. 3 answers will be wrong; the shapes on each face may be different or at a different angle. This will aid you in mentally rotating shapes and objects.

3D Sequences (medium difficulty)

You will be provided with a sequence of 5 cubes which are linked together with a common rule. Your task is to pick the next cube in the sequence from 4 possible answers. This style of question is very popular with student recruiters and can be tested in many different ways, this is a must try before doing any diagrammatic or spatial reasoning exercise.

Folding 2D Nets (hard difficulty)

Another important skill for anyone wanting to improve their Spatial Reasoning is to be able to fold 2D nets without any aids. Take the example net to the left, if presented with four 3D cubes, would you be able to identify which 3D cube you would get if you were to fold the net? Note this test also requires the previous skill of being able to rotate objects & shapes in 3D and 2D.
