Ability tests take place under pressure and people often focus on the speed (as opposed to accuracy) and attempt lots of questions very quickly, giving each question minimal time. This focus on speed can increase the risk of error as the candidate is seen to be rushing and not paying enough attention to the question detail; however the candidate is likely to attempt all of the questions.Speed refers to the number of questions a candidate gets correct (NC) out of the total number of questions (TC).

It is recommended that candidates work both quickly and accurately.
