What is Ukiset?
British schools work hard to find the best international students match their educational ethos and academic standards. UKiset has been designed as a standardized assessment to help schools the most suitable students and parents to find the right school for their child.
UKiset is an adaptive online test, conducted in English, designed to assist candidates applying to UK independent schools and to assist UK schools in finding the most suitable international students.

Assessments measure fundamental skills such as language, mathematics, problem-solving and learning ability. UKiset is a standardized assessment that can be used to identify a candidate's strengths, weaknesses and study preferences.

UKiset exam results are issued in two report formats. The first is a parent report and the other is a school report.
The Parent Report
The parent report can let parents know the overall English ability and reasoning ability of their children. The report shows whether the candidate's ability is above, equal to or below average. The report will also list the English proficiency level of the candidate at the time of taking the UKiset to the level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
The School Report
The School Report will only be provided directly to schools by UKiset. Parents will not receive this report. The School Report is more detailed than The Parent Report. The content includes information such as the candidate's answering ability of each part of the test and the prediction of the candidate's future public exam results.
