Welcome to the Spotlight launch page

To proceed you will need the following

  • The test access information sent to you by email

  • Approximately 1-2 hours to complete all sections of the assessment

  • A quiet space with good internet access and a laptop/desktop

  • Rough paper and a pencil for working things out

This page will launch you to the assessment portal. Whilst Spotlight is a standalone product, we use exclusive access to the APT (powered by Atom Learning's data), to expand the standardised scoring capabilities and ensure your child is bench marked against the most comprehensive cohort of students across the UK.

Important things for the candidate to understand

  • This is not a pass or fail kind of test. It evaluates what kind of thinking you find easy or more difficult. Don't worry if there are questions you are unsure about, just have a go and move on to the next question.

  • The test questions will adapt their difficulty depending on how easy or hard you are finding it. If the questions feel challenging then it means you have done well on previous questions to get onto the harder ones; this is a good thing!


You're going to do brilliantly. We wish you the very best of luck!

Spotlight is an accredited partner of APT, in association with Atom Learning.
