Learn mnemonics

This is a powerful technique for helping you remember things. You can create your own acronym or phrase by incorporating letters or words.

In Abstract Reasoning, you may need a mnemonic for pattern recognition. Here’s our version: NSPC

  • Number
  • Shape
  • Position
  • Colour

When trying to uncover patterns in shapes, try the NSPC mnemonic. It’ll help ensure a methodical approach, plus its familiarity will help to relax you.

You’ll find the more you practise, the faster you’ll recognise patterns, develop methodology, and uncover rules.
