What is Non-Verbal Reasoning (NVR)?

November 15, 2021

Non-Verbal Reasoning questions are symbol and picture-based.

They test a child’s ability to understand and remember a visual sequence, interpret the meaning of the visual presentation, find the ‘odd one out’, solve codes and missing sequence patterns.

At Primary School, your child will have been taught how to deal with words and numbers but dealing with pictures is very different and your child will need to develop a new set of skills.

Rather like musical ability, you may find your child is very good at ‘academic’ subjects but struggles initially with visual skills.  Our teaching encourages these skills to develop but, just as with musical skills, you cannot expect these abilities to develop overnight – they grow over time.

Practice and perseverance are needed to succeed and at Examberry we support your child during this journey.
