UKCBC Admissions: Maths Practice Assessment

As part of the admission process at UKCBC, we ask adult learner applicants who don’t have the necessary qualification for direct entry to complete a maths assessment to ensure they’re ready for the challenges of studying an undergraduate degree.

So if you’re seeking to gauge your numeracy proficiency and embark on a journey of academic and professional growth, you’re in the right place. The practice assessment below mirrors the tests we use for admissions, providing you with a unique opportunity to experience the standards we uphold at UKCBC.
