Which are the most useful CAT4 practice tests to buy?
Before reviewing these, School Entrance Tests recommends purchasing your CAT4 practice tests for your child’s specific school year group here:
Targeted CAT 4 test practice by CAT4 section
- Try our Verbal Classification CAT 4 practice and our CAT 4 Verbal Analogies practice.
- Then next our CAT 4 Figure Recognition practice and Figure Analysis CAT 4 practice.
- And CAT 4 Number Analogies practice plus our Number Series CAT 4 practice.
- Finally our CAT4 Figure Classification.
We also offer free CAT4 non-verbal reasoning skills resources. For example, our popular Passed Papers You Tube channel‘s
CAT4 video guide.

Which skills does the CAT4 assess?
What are the CAT4 spatial reasoning test questions like?
In the CAT4 spatial reasoning questions you have to manipulate 2D and 3D shapes. So similar to the non-verbal reasoning questions in that sense.
You need to identify each of the different set of shapes’ patterns. In other words the relationships between them. How they relate to each other.
Explaining CAT4 questions on 2D shape combinations
CAT4 TEST INSTRUCTIONS – Find which shapes can be combined to create the full picture you’ve been presented with in each CAT4 spatial reasoning question.
Take a look at this example question. Which of the options below, makes up the top shape?
Explaining CAT4 questions on Analysing the Mirror Image Matching 2D Shapes
CAT4 TEST INSTRUCTIONS – Find which two shapes are identical in each CAT4 spatial reasoning question.
Regardless of the perspective / angle shown, identify which two 2D shapes are equivalent.
Explaining CAT4 questions on Analysing the Mirror Image
CAT4 TEST INSTRUCTIONS – Find the exact mirror image for each CAT4 spatial reasoning question.
Explaining CAT4 questions requiring 3D Cube construction
CAT4 TEST INSTRUCTIONS – Find for each CAT4 spatial reasoning question:
- The marking which is the exact opposite of the one that is presented in the question.
- or if it’s a flattened out 3D cube, then you must choose which of the answer options represents the fully reconstructed cube. So, when in three dimensions in other words.
CAT4 test practice
Explaining CAT4 question types involving Solid 2D and 3D shapes
INSTRUCTIONS – Find for each CAT4 spatial reasoning question, you must determine which 3D shape is equivalent to the unmade one presented. So, in other words, which of the folded up shapes is represented by the unfolded shape in the questions.
Other key CAT 4 things you need to know
- There are different versions of the CAT4 test, depending on your child’s age.
- The CAT4 test is divided into 8 modules. These vary in length. The shortest modules are 8 minutes long and the longest modules are 10 minutes long.
The 8 modules are split across 4 types of Reasoning: Verbal, Non-Verbal, Spatial and Quantitative. Each of these is equally weighted when calculating your child’s final score.
- CAT4 Verbal Reasoning modules are called Verbal Classification and Verbal Analogies.
- The CAT4 Non-Verbal Reasoning modules are called Figure Classification and Figure Matrices.
- CAT4 Spatial Reasoning modules are called Figure Analysis and Figure Recognition.
- The CAT4 Quantitative Reasoning modules are called Number Series and Number Analogies. Number Series involves completing sequences. Number Analogies involves completing a third pair of number analogies.
- CAT4 assessment is not adaptive. This means there is no negative marking so you should encourage your child to answer every question. If they find themselves out of time in a module with a few questions to spare, it’s better that they guess and supply an answer for each question rather than leave the last few blank.
- Most children find one or two of the four types of Reasoning harder than the others. That’s why we recommend taking
- Several CAT4 practice tests
- Our section specific CAT4 test practice.
- so that then You will be able to see which types of questions your child finds tricky so you can then focus specifically on them.
