Section 1: Logical reasoning and problem solving
The staple learning material for aspiring doctors, dentists, and physiotherapists.
Logical reasoning and problem solving is oriented about testing candidates on their problem solving and critical thinking skills. The section asks students to reach a logical solution based on a stimulus provided to them. Key concepts involve a combination comprehending, analysing, synthesising information, and testing or validating hypotheses.
No curriculum specific knowledge is required to answer the questions, or arrive at the correct answer. However, some basic numeracy, logical and scientific skills are expected to perform well in this section.
