Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4) – Quantitative Reasoning Section | Key Details



The Quantitative Reasoning section forms two of the eight modules in the Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT).  As such, it is responsible for one quarter of your child’s total score.

In this article, we will explain exactly how your child can use our CAT4 Quantitative Reasoning Course to prepare for this section of the assessment, maximising their potential.

What is the ‘CAT4 Quantitative Reasoning Course’?


It is an online course that consists of 22 video lessons that comprehensively cover every known Quantitative Reasoning question type that could come up in the Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4). You can view the full course outline and watch a sample video lesson by clicking the green button VIEW COURSE LESSON PLAN on this page.

Who is the course for?


This course is specifically designed for students aged from 9 to 15 that are taking any of the following assessments:

GL Assessment CAT4

Cogat Form 7

Other forms of the Cognitive Abilities Test

Whilst the course is designed for students, it will also prove beneficial for teachers, tutors and parents who wish to understand Quantitative Reasoning question types, techniques and syllabus requirements.

How will the course benefit my child?


Cognitive Abilities Tests, such as the GL Assessment CAT4, contain eight modules. These eight modules are split equally across four batteries: Verbal Reasoning, Spatial Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning.

This video course focuses on the two modules of Quantitative Reasoning:


– Number Series & Number Analogies


These two modules account for 25% of your child’s total CAT score.


We’ve analysed these two modules in great detail, breaking them down into a series of question types. The videos in this course offer a systematic approach to mastering each one. Each video lesson deals with one question type, which is first introduced with an explanation and a worked example.


This is followed by further interactive worked examples, emphasizing specific techniques to deal with each question type in the most efficient manner. Key tips and advice are presented throughout each video lesson.


Finally, there are a number of practice questions for students to try themselves to reinforce and consolidate what they have learnt. These are timed to match the actual exam. Thorough explanations are then provided for each of these practice questions.


This course will most likely introduce your child to all of the possible question types that could come up in their exam. This means that their actual assessment will pose no surprises and that they will not only be familiar with the material but will also be equipped with the tools and techniques to deal with every question confidently, accurately and efficiently.

How long is the course and how can I access it?


The total length of the video lessons in the course is over 6.5 hours. The video lessons can be watched in any order, as many times as you like.

We have created our own custom video interface that allows users to easily add their own notes to any video and to mark lessons as complete once they have been watched and understood.

Once the course has been purchased, it will be immediately available in your personal online dashboard. You will have lifetime access to the course and can watch the videos as many times as you like. The video lessons can be watched on any device. All you need is an internet connection.
