After Jamb, the next exam to prepare for is your School of choice Post Utme, though not all schools organize/conduct Post UTME for her student but most does, hence the need for effective preparation if you hope to succeed.
In today’s episode of  my admission I will show you how you can answer aptitude test questions in post Utme without stress.
One thing that makes the Post Unified Tertiary Examination different from Jamb is the uniqueness in the manner questions are asked, some schools like University of Benin, Delta State University always chip in some aptitude test questions, of which I am certain you were not taught in school.

What Is Aptitude Test?

Aptitude tests are used to evaluate the ability of a person to excel in certain tasks without prior knowledge, this test is used by schools or Co-operations to test the IQ (Intelligent Quotient) of their candidates.
This test also helps you improve your thought, processing and memory skills, this test is used by schools in your Post UTME exam to determine your propensity to succeed in a given activity.
Schools can also use aptitude tests to tell if a students is inclined toward advanced placement classes or certain areas of study, like Engineering or Pharmacy.

From my research, Over 95% of students who have written post UTM Exams containing aptitude test questions, just guess their answers in the Aptitude test section, although we can’t blame them for this, but this surely has a negative effect on their overall score.

How To Answer Aptitude Test Questions

Answering Aptitude questions in Post UTME can be very tricky, schools tend to focus on all areas of Aptitude test, but this time majorly on Structural, Numeric and Verbal reasoning. I will analyze three (3) major examples of aptitude test questions you will find and how you can answer them.

1. ODD One Out

The “Odd One Out” Questions is one that is constant in Post UTM exam of schools that conduct Post UTME containing aptitude test questions (Mind you, this question is different from the “Odd man out” type of question.
Now, in this type of question, you are presented with four (4) similar options, three (3) of this 4 is closely related while one is different, your ability to identify the odd one among the rest determine if you will answer correctly or not. Let’s look at the example below…
Identify the ODD one in the options below
(a) Yen
(b) Pounds
(c) Naira
(d) Dollar
From the exam above, you will observe closely that all the options are similar, that is, they are all currency used by different countries, yet you were asked to identify the odd one. what you have to do is identify that which is obsolete/different, in this case Naira, Option (c).
You may ask why Naira, reason being that, all other currencies in the options are foreign while Naira is local! hope you get the picture now…
Try these other example
1. Identify the ODD one in the options below
(a) Man
(b) Male
(c) Boy
(d) Girl
2. Identify the ODD one in the options below
(a) Flying
(b) Trekking
(c) Running
(d) Walking
1. Identify the ODD one in the options below
(a) Nabteb
(b) Jamb
(c) Waec
(d) Neco

2. Anagram

This is where you find a lot of students guessing because they don’t understand the concepts of use. An Anagram is a word or phrase formed by rearranging the letters of a different word or phrase, typically using all the original letters exactly once.
Let’s look at the example below…
(a) Heart
(b) Sun
(c) Moon
(d) Star
From the exam above, you will observe that Option b, c and d cannot be an Anagram of Earth, But Earth can be rearranged to Heart, therefore Heart is the correct option.
Try these other example
(a) Tide 
(b) Die
(c) Meal 
(d) Nutrition
So it now make sense. Now try the following taken from DELSU POST UTME
Management Science, ART, and ENG past questions of 2014
1. ANGELS Q Sang R Angles S Lean T Holy
2. MEAT Q Mate’ R Meet S Term T Protein
3. LAMPS Q Palm R Light S Dark T Psalm
