About Shell logical Reasoning Tests
Logical reasoning tests are a fair and objective way for Shell to assess a wide range of applicants, each having different experiences and different qualifications. By analysing the results of a standardised logical reasoning test, Shell are able to quickly see which candidates are suitable for the role and which are not. This sort of information about candidates’ skills is difficult to glean from interviews and qualifications alone, so they use professional psychometric tests.
This test platform is very helpful. I find my speed and accuracy became much faster after taking the tests using assessmentday. I would recommend to concentrate and find a time which your brain works best to practise.Shell applicant
Shell Application Process Stages
Here is the typical process for your application to Shell.
The whole application process will vary depending on the Shell region you are applying to. Some of the stages may not apply, and some may appear in a different sequence. However, all will require that you complete an application form.
Online Aptitude Test
Numerical, Verbal, Logical and/or Situational Judgement
Once your application has been reviewed and successfully passed screening, an online assessment will be employed. Once again, each region will operate under their own system.
For the final stage of the process you will be invited to an assessment centre and asked to take part in some exercises:
- Commercial exercise and interview
- Written exercise
- Psychometric tests
Upon passing the psychometric tests, you will then be asked to take part in an interview. Typically, in an interview you will be given a set of questions to respond to. You will then use the software provided to record your responses to these questions. Responses are typically 30 seconds to a minute long. Use the freedom here to plan your responses to the questions well, even if that means redoing the recording. Ensure that your answers are relevant to the questions asked.

Logical reasoning tests and who uses them
Companies are using logical reasoning test more and more in their application process that candidates must go through. Logical reasoning tests are favoured to assess a candidate's general level of abstract intelligence or reasoning ability. A person's score in a logical reasoning test is a good indicator of their ability to work well with new concepts and to spot patterns. This can be important in any sector or position.
So as a graduate or senior candidate applying for a job at Shell you might feel like the logical reasoning test is an unnecessary hoop to jump through. But you should bear in mind that Shell are asking you to complete the logical test as much for your own benefit as theirs; if you are not suitable for the role, a psychometric test will usually identify this. Research has shown that psychometric tests, such as those used by Shell, are a better predictor of job performance than traditional selection metrics such as level of degree achieved.
What you should know before taking your logical reasoning test
The logical operations required in standardised logical tests are of a level which most applicants can achieve. The difficult aspect comes with identifying the patterns, especially when there are multiple differences in each example of the pattern, quickly and accurately within the time limit. Here is a list of the most common operations you can expect in your logical test:
- Changes in size of shape
- Greyscale shading or other ways of making shapes more distinct
Different types of logical tests
Most questions in most logical reasoning tests follow a standard format displaying a pattern of images, the question and answer options on screen. These can be arranged differently, but each test will stick to the same layout throughout. The images may contain shapes, such as squares, triangles, and circles, or more symbols, such as arrows, currency signs, and other special characters. The question text may contain extra information which adds to what's given in the sequence of images, this might also be necessary to answer the question correctly. You might have to guess which answer option is the next in the sequence, or which options represents a missing step in the sequence. Lastly, the answer options are almost always multiple choice. Multiple choice answers can vary, however. You may have 4 options to pick from, 5, maybe 10, or more. The more answer options to pick from, the slimmer the chances are that you can obtain the correct answer by guessing.
How difficult are your tests?
The same difficulty as real tests. Generally real employer selection tests don't differ that much in terms of difficulty which is why they compare your score against norm groups. Our practice tests are pitched roughly at graduate level, but this means they are actually suitable for preparing for all levels of job: entry; apprentice; graduate; senior; director.
Are they compatible with my Mac / Tablet / Phone?
Yes, and PC, and Linux and smartphone and Android and...everything. Our practice tests will run on all systems and they are responsive so they will work well on tablets and smartphones too!
How many times can I take the tests?
Unlimited. You can take our practice tests as many times as you like; there is no limit. But to be honest, after taking the same test a few times you start to remember the answers, so that’s why we have lots of tests.
