What is the UKiset test and how can you prepare?
What is the UKiset test? The UK Independent Schools’ Entry Test (UKiset) is a computerised assessment designed for overseas students aged between 9 and 18 years old. Many UK independent schools require overseas students to take this test as part of their admissions process, as it serves as a pre-test to help schools identify the most suitable candidates.
The Rise of the IB
The International Baccalaureate is now on offer at 194 schools across the UK, educating over 5000 students. The UK has happily ambled through the last half of a century with dreams that the A-Levels are the best assessment for eighteen year olds. Whilst most of us would have agreed, clearly others have been left wondering if there is a better option.

It is almost 30 years since the advent of school league tables and Ofsted/ISI ratings are well known to most parents when assessing schools for their children. The Good Schools Guide includes entries on thousands of schools across the UK with reports by experienced reviewers.
