General Intelligence Test 310 (GIT-310)


The purpose of the General Intelligence Test 310 is to assess an individual's general cognitive ability - the ability to use reasoning to solve problems at the level typically associated with the completion of university. It can serve as an alternative to a university education requirement. Qualification standards outline the minimum requirements necessary to perform the work in a given occupational group, including alternatives to education. More information is available in the questions and answers on qualification standards.


The General Intelligence Test 310 has five sub-tests, with a total of 121 multiple-choice questions. The sub-tests are as follows:

  • General Information – 20 questions
  • Similarities – 16 questions
  • Arithmetic – 15 questions
  • Memory – 30 questions
  • Block Design – 40 questions

The test takes about one hour and 20 minutes to write, including time for administrative purposes.

The pass mark is 68/121.

Retest Period

There is a 180 day waiting period before you can rewrite the test. You may not retake it until the retest period has elapsed. If you rewrite the test before the retest period has elapsed, your result will not be valid and a new retest period will be imposed from the most recent test date.

The Personnel Psychology Centre's scoring service sends results within 48 hours to the test centre that informs candidates of their scores.
