Worth it. My son was taking the CogAT Level 5/6 for school and with help from the practice tests, he scored well and was able to get into the county's gifted program. Thank you so much.

My son was preparing for CogAT Level 9. With practice, my son got used to the question styles and the practice built his confidence with the exam. Once kids know they can do well, there is no limit – they will always do their best. I have recommended TestPrep-Online to all my friends.

About the CAT4 Level A

The Cognitive Abilities Test (or CAT4) is a cognitive test developed by GL Assessment to support schools in the understanding of students’ individual abilities and academic potential. In addition, the CAT4 is widely used as an entrance exam to many private and public schools in the UK and Ireland as well as schools around the world. The CAT4 level A exam is made according to the specifications of Year 4 in the UK, catering to children between the ages of 7 to 9.

CAT4 Subjects

The CAT4 includes four subject-specific divisions called ‘batteries’:

Verbal Reasoning – This battery is about discovering logical connections between words. It is designed to measure your verbal comprehension, reasoning, and logic as well as your vocabulary.

Quantitative Reasoning – This battery tests one’s ability to use numbers and basic arithmetic concepts to solve simple mathematical problems. Most of the questions in this battery do not require complex calculations.

Non-verbal Reasoning – This battery tests one’s problem-solving and pattern recognition skills using various formations of shapes. These skills are needed in important school subjects such as mathematics and sciences.

Spatial Reasoning – This battery tests the ability to think and carry out tasks in three dimensions. This includes mental rotation, recognition of shapes within larger figures, and more.

How to Prepare for the CAT4 Level A (Year 4)

To make sure your child is adequately prepared for the CAT4, there are several things we advise you to do:

  • Use our CAT practice papers for Year 4. This CAT4 test practice will provide your child with real-life simulations that reflect the real CAT4 Level A exam.
  • When practicing, do not spend too much time on any one particular question. Remember that each section of the test is timed, and you should answer as many questions as you can. Try solving easier questions first so you leave more time for the harder questions.
  • Take breaks when you need to during practicing, so you do not feel burnt-out.
  • Know your child's strengths and weaknesses through practicing so you can focus the practice on subjects that are difficult for him or her.
  • When you finish a practice test, read the explanations carefully (even if you got it right!) and understand where you were wrong and why. Our practice pack provides thorough explanations and solving tips for each question.

In summary, the CAT4 Level A is a challenging test, but proper preparation increases the chances your child will ace it. Our CAT4 Level A PrepPack allows your child to familiarise him- or herself with the test and gives him or her the confidence needed to succeed.
