BKSB Assessment

A BKSB assessment gives us an initial indication of your current levels of understanding in both English and maths. We use the results of this computer-based assessment to plan the next stage in your education journey, so it is important the assessment is completed without any support from friends or family.

The BKSB assessment is not a test, so do not worry about failing it, but please do make sure you dedicate some quiet time so you can give it your full attention. If you wish to do any preparation for your assessment, we recommend that you visit a website such as www.bbc.co.uk/skillswise where you will be able to revise any areas you feel may need some practice.

You should have received a link to the assessment prior to your interview via email. Please ensure that you have completed the assessment at least 2 days prior to your interview date.

All 19+ applicants, who are unable to provide evidence of English and maths qualifications, will be asked to undertake a BKSB initial assessment as part of their college application to assess their current English and maths levels.

For more information on how to access and complete BKSB initial assessments please read the BKSB Guide.

If you are applying to study a specific English or maths course, you will need to undertake a slightly different assessment, and our English and maths team will provide you with details on what's expected.
