How is the ACE Cognitive Test structured?

The ACE test is offered in two versions:

Version 1: Here you have 30 minutes to answer 12 questions.

Version 2: Here you have 75 minutes to answer 24 questions.

The test has three parts, with a numerical (mathematical) part, with text-based mathematical tasks, and a logical (abstract/spatial) part where you have to recognise the logic of a figure. The last part consists of a verbal test section, where your word skills are tested. All in all, the test is an excellent indicator of the traditional way of measuring IQ.

The test is based on a Computer Adaptive Testing System, which means that the difficulty of the questions adapts individually to your abilities. So, should you produce as excellent in the questions, the questions will increase in difficulty for you.

The questions are very difficult, both in general and in comparison to other tests. In return, you have a relatively long time for each question (2.5 minutes).

The ACE test is not a test that focuses on speed. Thus, you should be able to answer all the questions if possible, as you will not be under time pressure.

ACE Cognitive Test Categories and Question Types

They are presented with a text-based mathematical question like this simple example:

For Halloween, Willam went to 12 houses. In 5 houses he got a candy bar, in 4 houses he got a lollipop and in the remaining houses he got caramels.
In what percentage of the houses did he get sweets?

You cannot guess from several given choices , that is, it is not multiple choice.

This classic logic/IQ figure type tests your spatial skills.

The ACE test is a 9-part figure type in a 3×3 matrix.

One of the squares is blank (usually the last square in the bottom right corner) and you have to figure out which of the 4-6 given answer choices is the correct one.

The 3rd type of question is about verbal competence, i.e. your ability to comprehend words.

This type of question is also called an analogy, which tests how well you can see the connection between words.

Calibre : Firearms
Diameter : ?

Impact weapons

The above example assumes that you already know that the diameter of the barrel of a firearm is called the calibre, which is also a measure of the size of the bullet.

A similar ananlogy exists only for tubes, since the size of a tube is always given in diameter. A similar correlation is excluded for the other three answer options.

How to assess an ACE test result

Nachdem Sie den ACE-Test absolviert haben, erhält das Unternehmen einen Bericht über Ihr Testergebnis, der folgende Angaben enthält:

  • An overall score on a scale of 1-10, based on a normal distribution. So if you score a 5, you are in the middle of everyone who takes the test.
  • A score of 1-10 in each of the three sections (Numerical, Logical, Verbal).
  • A speed score for each of the three sub-areas from 1-10.
  • A text-based interpretation of your test score that you can present at your next interview
  • An interpretation of your test score compared to the average (normal distribution).

How to score high on ACE tests

  1. Practise as much as possible in practice tests before taking the real exam.
  2. You choose the language in which you want to take the test. At best, choose the language in which your real test will also be.
  3. Be as focused and clear-headed as possible when you take the real test, and choose the time of day when you can concentrate best.
  4. Make sure you are completely undisturbed and put your phone on silent/flight mode.
  5. Practice just before the real test to warm up.
