Aptitude tests are used to evaluate the ability of a person to excel in certain task without prior knowledge, this test is used by schools or Co-operations to test the IQ (Intelligent Quotient) of their candidates.

This test also helps you improve your thought, processing and memory skills, this test is used by schools in your Post UTME exam to determine your propensity to succeed in a given activity.

Schools can also use aptitude tests to tell if a students is inclined toward advanced placement classes or certain areas of study, like Engineering or Pharmacy.

From my research, Over 95% of students who have written post UTM Exams containing aptitude test questions, just guess their answers in the Aptitude test section, although we can’t blame them for this, but this surely has a negative effect on their overall score.

In order to elevate you from that difficult position, I have prepared this guide, don’t worry you can thank me later.

Types Of Aptitude Test?

Aptitude test can be subdivided into 5 major categories which include…

  1. Numeric Reasoning
  2. Verbal Reasoning
  3. Inductive Reasoning
  4. Structural Reasoning
  5. Diagrammatic Tests

In your Post UTM Exam, questions will be set randomly from any of the above categories. Not to bore you with details, I have taken out time to sought out some of the most frequently asked aptitude test questions and how you can answer them. Enjoy!

Post UTME Aptitude Test Questions

Answering Aptitude questions in Post UTME can be very tricky, schools tend to focus on all areas of Aptitude test, but this time majorly on Structural, Numeric and Verbal reasoning. I will analyze three (3) major examples of aptitude test questions you will find and how you can answer them.

1. ODD One Out

The “Odd One Out” Questions is one format of aptitude test question that always come out in Post UTM exam of schools that conduct Post UTME containing aptitude test questions (Mind you, this question is different from the “Odd man out” type of question.

Now, in this type of question, you are presented with four (4) similar options, three (3) of this 4 is closely related while one is different, your ability to identify the odd one among the rest determine if you will answer correctly or not. Let’s look at the example below…

Identify the ODD one in the options below

(a) Yen
(b) Pounds
(c) Naira
(d) Dollar

From the example above, you will observe closely that all the options are similar, that is, they are all currency used by different countries, yet you were asked to identify the odd one. what you have to do is identify that which is obsolete/different, which in this case is Naira, Option (c) becomes the correct option.

You may ask why Naira, reason being that, all other currencies in the options are foreign while Naira is local! hope you get the picture now… 

Try these other example

1. Identify the ODD one in the options below 

(a) Man
(b) Male
(c) Boy
(d) Girl

2. Identify the ODD one in the options below

(a) Flying
(b) Trekking
(c) Running
(d) Walking

3. Identify the ODD one in the options below 

(a) Nabteb
(b) Jamb
(c) Waec
(d) Neco

2. Anagram

This is where you find a lot of students guessing because they don’t understand the concepts of use. An Anagram is a word or phrase formed by rearranging the letters of a different word or phrase, typically using all the original letters exactly once.

Let’s take a look at the example below… 


(a) Heart
(b) Sun
(c) Moon
(d) Star

From the exam above, you will observe that Option b, c and d cannot be an Anagram of Earth, But Earth can be rearranged to Heart, therefore Heart is the correct option.

Try these other example

1. DIET 

(a) Tide 
(b) Die
(c) Meal 
(d) Nutrition

So it makes sense now right?. Now try the following taken from DELSU POST UTME
