British educational institutions have for many years been a prestigious, ranking and popular choice among students from all over the world. As the flow of entrants increases every year, from September 2015 introduced a single online testing Ukiset, helpingprivate schools in England select the most suitable candidates among foreigners.
The test was designed to simplify the procedure of admission for parents and children, agents and schools collectives.
This test is offered to schoolchildren 9-17 years old and helps to determine the level of their skills and abilities, academic and academic potential: thinking (verbal-logical, spatial), mathematical abilities; The essay is written, listening is carried out, special tasks for grammar are performed. Conditionally the test is divided into several blocks: Spatial Ability, Non-Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Ability, Verbal Reasoning - all stages of the test are conducted in English. The total testing time is approximately 2.5 hours.
Foreign students planning to study in the UK, when registering online, indicate up to 5 schools of their own choice (where enrollment is planned) - and the next day the results of Ukiset are automatically sent to these schools, one copy of the results is given to the child's parents (With a detailed explanation of the results). To date, more than 100 British schools have adopted this testing system and take into account the results on admission - among these institutions such rating schools as:
Schools whose academic requirements are very high will conduct a unified testing of Ukiset for primary selection - applicants who have successfully demonstrated a high level of their abilities are invited to further tests and interviews. But most high schools in the UK plan to use a single test as the main test of knowledge and abilities of applicants.
The idea of such a single testing is the innovation of modern British education, which can significantly improve the standards for selecting future students (the analogs of the test have long been used in individual schools, but have been scattered and varied). Especially convenient is that the results are ready very quickly - the very next day - and automatically sent to selected schools for verification.
For parents and agents, this test is convenient in that it allows you to get an objective and truthful opinion about the level of knowledge of the child: having the results of a single test on hand, you can more carefully approach the choice of the school, do not waste time registering and testing in unsuitable Educational institutions - and, in the end, increase their chances of admission. The administration of educational institutions due to the test Ukiset will be able to shorten the time for consideration of a huge flow of candidates and quickly sift out students who are inadequate in terms of knowledge and abilities.
