Ability tests take place under pressure and people often focus on the accuracy (as opposed to speed) and attempt fewer questions in the time given which means they take longer time per question, but ensure that they get those that they attempt correct. However, they are likely to compromise the opportunity to get extra marks as they may run out of time and not answer all of the questions. Accuracy refers to the number of questions a candidate gets correct (NC) out of the number of questions attempted (NA). It is recommended that candidates work both quickly and accurately.
