International Students
Compete on an Even
Playing Field.

Our Mission

Developed in partnership with Cambridge University Press & Assessment, UKiset provides a level playing field for students from all backgrounds to apply to top British independent schools, as well as British curriculum international schools.

The UKiset Profile provides schools with valuable information that aims to help schools make a well-informed decision when considering an international applicant.

The test includes assessments of academic potential and English proficiency language. The results compare candidates against British students within the same age group.

The adaptive nature of our assessment and rigorous identity-checks guarantee security, and allow us to identify a candidate’s strengths, weaknesses and learning preferences. The information provided can be fully trusted and relied upon during the admissions process.


To Independent Schools

Candidates can use their UKiset Profile to apply directly to a growing number of independent schools within the UKiset network.

UKiset is a valuable tool that helps families tailor applications to the most appropriate schools, as well as reduce the number of entrance exams they have to sit, as the UKiset report can be used to apply to multiple schools.

Academic consultants can also use the UKiset profile to offer ad-hoc advice according to their client’s educational journey. The majority of our candidates sit the assessment online through our secure online invigilation service.

Preparing for UKiset & School Selections

UKiset was founded in 2013 by Gabbitas, one of the leading educational consultancies in the UK, since 1873. With offices in the United Kingdom and China, Gabbitas has been helping students and families achieve their educational goals by providing them with expert advice and guidance into British independent education. 

There are over 2000 independent schools in the UK and finding the perfect fit for your child can become a lengthy and stressful process.   

Gabbitas can help UKiset applicants gain a better understanding of the British independent education sector and guide them in choosing the right school based on their individual needs.  

Support and guidance for the UKiset test is also available. Gabbitas tutors are offering candidates bespoke preparation for the UKiset assessment.
