Preparing for UKiset


-Content of Assessment

The UKiset examination lasts from 2 to 2.5 hours and is divided into three parts.

  • Logical reasoning
  • English
  • And writing

where logical reasoning is subdivided into

  • Text (vocabulary test)
  • Image (non-verbal reasoning)
  • Mathematical Reasoning

Three kinds.


English public and private school examinations must see logical reasoning.

Students wishing to go to the UK, whether they are enrolled in private or public grammar schools, must have taken the Reasoning Test.


Students who wish to apply to private schools must have heard or even passed Ukiset, and they must know that logical reasoning must not be taken lightly.

Students wishing to enroll in public grammar schools will have to pass the “11+” test to reach the basic entry threshold, i.e. the elective examination for primary school students in Year 6.


As the examination is not uniform across the country, the scope of the examination and the questions used vary from region to region, but the examination cannot be separated from the examination

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Non-verbal reasoning
  • And verbal reasoning


Logical reasoning plays an important role in school examinations in the UK, which is relatively unfamiliar to Hong Kong students who are accustomed to rote learning. Fortunately, there are still remedies-Atom Learning and Britannia Gateway.

Atom Learning Materials: Mainly divided into four subjects:
