The UKiset course will cover in detail all three sections of the examination: Section 1 - Reasoning; Section 2 - English Test; and Section 3 - Handwritten Essay. In addition to this, students will gain an understanding of the format of the examination, key timings, necessary skills and how best to practice these, and how to secure the highest marks. Students will also benefit from access to feedback and top tips from previous students, past essay questions, and closest-fit mark schemes for Section 3: Handwritten Essay. Each lesson will include taught material, markable activities, extension activities and homework tasks to assess progress. Students will also be engaged in discussions around useful strategies for Reasoning questions to ensure they are equipped with the confidence to approach a variety of question types.
