Introduction

 

UKiset is an online assessment used by many UK independent schools as a way of selecting international students for entry. Currently used by over 180 British schools, the assessment is designed to test the ability of international students in comparison to those in the UK in the same age group.

 

In this final article in our UKiset series, we complete our round-up of British senior schools that use the UKiset test.
