In Alva's logic test, you need to use your problem solving skills to solve logical tasks. You are presented with 20 tasks, to be answered each one in turn.

In each task, you are asked to identify the missing piece in a matrix of figures. The tasks are chosen just for you, in order to be challenging but not impossible.

There are six options to choose from. There is one, and only one correct answer to each task. The correct answer follows a logical pattern that is applied from top to bottom, and from left to right.

There is a time limit of two minutes for each task. Most people complete the test in 15-20 minutes.

It is important that you make sure your results will reflect your best performance. Make sure to set aside enough time for the test, and take it in a quiet and undisturbed environment when you feel rested and alert.

Before starting the actual test, you will get two sample tasks for practice and getting used to the interface.

The feedback is a score on a 10-point scale, comparing your result to a population of working adults.
