The AAT can be used to identify gaps in knowledge, track academic progress, and demonstrate knowledge. The Academic Aptitude Test is an online test taken at home to assess English, Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning.

What is our Academic Aptitude Test?

  • Adaptive, online test for students aged 6-16
  • English, Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning
  • Scored against Independent School and UK National Averages
  • Topic-by-topic breakdown in report
  • Track and inform your academic progress
  • Allows our consultants to objectively advise on academically appropriate schools
  • Informs our programme of tuition, with clear objectives from the start


Unlike mock exams, this test is adaptive, meaning that the question difficulty responds to the student’s ability. The insights from this test can be used to benchmark and track a student’s academic progress, and to map out their future trajectory.

Our AAT is ideal preparation for

  • ISEB Pre-Test
  • UKiset
  • Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4)

How does it work?

Once you’ve booked your test, we will send you a unique link and login. You can then take the test at the time you’ve indicated.

It is comprised of 4 sections: English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning.

The test is specifically tailored to the student's age group, with the number of questions and time allowance differing accordingly:

  • Junior - 6-9 year olds (60-75 minutes in total)
  • Senior - 10-13 year olds (75 - 90 minutes in total)
  • Higher - 14-16 year olds (90-100 minutes in total)

Once the test is complete, an AI-powered platform will compare your results and performance against UK national averages and independent school averages by year group, and you will receive a topic-by-topic detailed report within 1 working day of taking the test.


Students with Dyslexia will be given an additional 20% extra time for the English section.
