About the OLSAT Level G Test

High schools students in 9th-12th grades take the OLSAT Level G test when applying for entry into schools for gifted students and advanced courses. The Level G test is the most difficult and advanced test in the OLSAT-8 test series. Many students describe the OLSAT Level G test as being a “tricky test” with questions they have never seen before in their academic careers. Schools typically use the OLSAT Level G to measure areas of strength and weakness in students. Learn more about the different question types that appear on the OLSAT.

OLSAT Level G Practice Question-Figural Reasoning #1


Answer & Explanation

The correct answer is B.

In this question, the pattern for the top row is, from left to right, as follows:

  • All figures in the left picture are cut in half: the large external figure keeps its bottom half; the internal bottom figure keeps its top half; and the top internal figure keeps its bottom half.
  • Also, in opposition to the left picture, there are no overlapping figures in the right picture – all figure halves are exposed completely.

For the bottom row, these same features should hold, so the only possible answer is answer B.


OLSAT Level G Practice Question-Figural Reasoning #2

Answer & Explanation

The correct answer is D.

Each matrix in the series above has one black box. Throughout the series, this box moves one slot up and one slot to the left in each step. The rows and columns of the matrix are continuous, so the bottom row is considered the row “above” the top row, the right column is considered the column “to the left of” the left column, and so on.
For example, in the first matrix the middle box in the top row has to move one slot “up”, which puts it in the middle of the bottom row, and then one slot to the left – thus placing it in the bottom left corner of the matrix

Note that since the same action is applied to each matrix, and frame 4 is identical to frame 1, then frame 5 would also be identical to frame 2. (The given series is a repeating sequence of frames 1-3.)

Therefore, the correct answer is D.

Tips for Strengthening OLSAT Scores

  • Learn as much as you can about the test. Involve your child in the process. Read all the information on this page and our FAQ page, OLSAT Verbal page, OLSAT Nonverbal page, and OLSAT Question Types page. Do not hesitate to consult with your child's teachers. Remember your child's teachers spend many hours with him or her and knows exactly what types of questions he or she needs most practice in. They, too, can give you further information about the OLSAT.
  • A study routine is always helpful. Build a study routine with your child and make up a study plan, covering all the types of questions (using an OLSAT reviewer). A routine will help your child know what to do and when to study, and a study plan will help them become more confident, especially on the day of the test, knowing he or she has covered everything while preparing.
  • Do not skip question types. Even if your child finds a certain type of question easy, remind them how important it is to practice it nonetheless. The actual test has questions of varying difficulty, and your child might come across a particularly difficult question of the type. Therefore, acquiring tools for solving all types of questions while preparing is a key for success.
  • Know your child's strengths and weaknesses. Your child's strong and weak spots should affect the study plan you build together. Spending more time practicing their weaker spots is very important. As explained above, remember not to skip subjects completely, even if your child does not find it challenging.
  • Eating well is an important part of studying. Studies have shown that students work better and achieve better academic results after having a good, nutritious meal, and especially after a good breakfast. Sweets, on the other hand, have been found to make the sugar levels plummet after a short rise, which makes it that much harder to concentrate. Provide your child with nutritious food such as vegetables, fruit, proteins, and complex carbohydrates, and try to avoid sweets.
  • A good night's sleep is necessary. Sleep deprivation hurts concentration levels and achievements. Therefore, studying into the night is not recommended. Make sure your child gets enough sleep at the end of the day, and studies at reasonable hours. Taking short breaks from time to time is also recommended, as studying should be done in sessions.
  • Help your child learn independently. While your involvement in your child's learning process is important, remember you will not be there during the real test. Therefore, your child needs to learn how to work alone. The best way is to go through the first few questions together, make sure your child understands what to do, then let him or her practice alone and call you only if a problem occurs.
