The CAT Test – Everything you need to know

Students are often scheduled to take a Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT) at school.


Schools use these assessments for a number of reasons. The results can be used to inform decisions on which senior school/s your child should apply to as well as internal decisions on streaming. Some senior schools request CAT scores as part of their admissions process.


As such, it can be a significant assessment for your child so it’s worth learning a bit more about it.


Below, you’ll find a series of articles that go into more depth, explaining what the test consists of and how your child can prepare for it.
