Conquer your ISEB CPT and CAT4 goals with Pre-Quest!

Conquer your ISEB CPT and CAT4 goals with Pre-Quest!

Pre-Quest is an online platform designed by teachers to prepare for the ISEB CPT, GL and CAT4 tests

We designed Pre-Quest in 2019 to make sure our Brandon Learning Centre students were super prepared for the ISEB Common Pretest and CAT4 GL assessments. All the questions have been written by our tutors who are working with ISEB CPT, GL and CAT4 students on a daily basis. We use Pre-Quest in our classes and opened up the programme so more students can benefit from our knowledge.

We know Pre-Quest works; since we developed it, we have had students winning interviews at Eton, Westminster, Winchester, Benenden, Marlborough, Wellington and many other top schools.  Our CAT4 students have excelled at Wycombe, Cheltenham Ladies, and German Swiss International assessments

Pre-Quest succeeds by breaking each topic into subsets and ensuring that students have exposure to a myriad of question types. You get to see which type of questions you have mastered and tips helps explain new question types. A link to Brandon allows parents to book a tutor if you need a bit of extra help.

Questions from Pre-Quest parents

Do I need to buy add ons?

No! We use Pre-Quest daily in our tutorial schools and teachers are constantly adding new questions as tests evolve; at no additional cost to you.

Does it get harder as I get questions right?

Yes. Our adaptive system is developed to genuinely reflect progress and to ensure that students are given support when needed. Adaptive questions help to build confidence and to stretch!

Can I save tests and exercises?

Yes! Our tests use a mix random of questions from extensive databases allowing you to re-take with confidence knowing that you will be trying new challenges.

How do I know where my strengths lie?

Our ISEB CPT questions are divided into types so you can see which styles have been mastered and where your child may need more practice.

Is it fun?

We think so! Motivated students are more successful. Our interface includes “worlds” and “teachers” to inspire and help students remember all materials more efficiently.

What about parents?

You will able to see results in real time in your Dashboard or via email reports. All tests are saved and you can see what question types your child has mastered. You can also book tutorial sessions with our online experts (extra cost)

What is the ISEB CPT? What is tested?

The ISEB CPT (Pre-test) is a set of online, adaptive tests taken in English to support admission into the UK independent schools. We have taught preparation for the ISEB Pre-test since its inception and created a platform which can prepare for the questions found in the assessment. We have also added in many of our own cunning designs so our students are ready for all challenges!

Our aim is to find and fill in the gaps in our students’ knowledge. So you can prepare in advance, each unit in PreQuest is divided into three different levels. Each stage focuses on a separate part of the educational process and is connected to the previous materials – revision will provide practice and ensure that lessons are remembered.

What is the ISEB CPT?

The ISEB Common Pretest covers four principal areas, all of which are tested with multiple choice questions:

  • Non-verbal reasoning (solving problems using diagrams and patterns)
  • Verbal reasoning (problems working with words and language)
  • Mathematics (working with numbers, value and sequences)
  • English (grammar, vocabulary and comprehension)


Do you update the questions?

Yes! We have a team of teachers who are preparing our students for the ISEB CPT and CAT4 entrance tests. We are constantly creating new questions and uploading them to Pre-Quest.

Practice is the Key!

Each level is timed and can be repeated; if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!
