Assessment Centre

Welcome to the second section of the LURA Online Assessment Centre. This section will test your numerical reasoning. Please read all instructions before starting.

You will be presented with two scenarios, each accompanied with some data in a chart or a graph, and then asked four numerical questions on each scenario, which will require you to interpret and manipulate the data. It is recommended that you use a calculator.

Each correct answer will gain you 1 point and each incorrect answer will gain you 0 points. There are 8 questions in total, thus your final score will therefore be out of 8.

Before you answer any questions, please ensure you have filled out your name and UoL Identifier at the top of the test page.

Once you have answered all questions, press SUBMIT at the bottom of the page. You have 10 minutes to complete the test. A timer is displayed both at the top of this page and in the title of the tab on your browser. If you have not finished the test when the timer runs out, any questions you have answered will be marked and any questions you have not answered will be given 0 marks.

LURA will only receive your first attempt at the test. Any further attempts will not count.

Thinking of cheating? We have in-built methods that detect if candidates cheat on these assessments. Naturally, if we suspect you have cheated during any part of this process, your application will be declined.
