Verbal reasoning in both ASTs and ADs exams

Hi, anybody knows whether verbal reasoning questions that will be asked in the exam for ASTs could be also asked in the following exam for ADs?

I guess not as different selection boards prepare different questions. What I am curious is if difficulty level is one and the same for AST and AD competitions?

I had an SC competition yesterday and I was amazed that I could recognise at least 3-4 questions, if not more, that came up in previous AD competitions I have sat before. So verbal reasoning questions are re-used regularly and apparently the difficulty is not adjusted to the competition... this year I had the feeling the verbal was way too hard for a secretary concours. So I will be not surpised if I keep seeing these questions in other competitions, the probelm is you never get to know the right answer, so it is not really that helpful.
