Your result from the logic test is presented on a scale from 1 to 10. This is a so-called standardized scale, which means that it has been developed to mirror a normal distribution. The result that you get is an estimation of your logical ability, relative to the working population.

The fact that logic test results are normally distributed means that most people will get results around the middle of the scale. The most common results are 5 and 6, and then the results get more rare the further you get towards the two end points. Results above 9 or below 2 are quite uncommon, in other words.

Below your 1-10 result, you can also see the percentile range. For the results 5-6, the percentile ranges are wide, since they cover a large part of the population.

Alva’s logic test is adaptive, which means that the tasks are uniquely selected for each individual to be challenging but not impossible. A person with a logical ability above average, for example, will get questions that are above average in difficulty. This is why two people with the same number of correct answers can get different results.

Keep in mind when interpreting your results that logical ability is far from the only thing determining job performance or career success. Factors such as personality, motivation, values, and experience are also important, and strengths in one area may outweigh weaknesses in another.
