The Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT) forms part of many schools’ admissions process, allowing them to assess pupils’ developed abilities and likely academic potential.

Performance in the CAT is also used to judge progress over the academic year and make decisions regarding setting children according to ability.

This practice test is designed to familiarise students with the online format, style and content of this multiple-choice test so they feel confident and prepared for the actual assessment. Solutions and age-specific result statistics are provided.

Whilst students of all ages will find this test useful, it will be especially helpful for those aged 9 to 13 who plan to take Cognitive Abilities Tests such as the GL Assessment CAT4 or the CogAT Form 7.

Pretest Plus is an independent publisher of practice tests and not affiliated with or endorsed by the publishers of the CAT4 or the CogAT.
