There are 100 questions with 4 or 5 answers from which the candidate is asked to choose the most appropriate response. There is only one correct answer, with no marks deducted for incorrect answers. ISAT is not a test of subject specific knowledge. Rather, it aims to assess a candidate's 'critical' and 'quantitative' reasoning skills.

  • 'Quantitative Reasoning' (QR) - involves analysis and application of information; drawing conclusions and making decisions; and solving problems. These questions use material from the mathematics and sciences.
