Initial Assessment via BKSB

More information about the Initial Assessments

Step 1: Access the BKSB portal here:

Step 2: Sign in using the details found in your conditional offer email

Step 3: Select the "Focus Functional Skills - View Courses" Button

Step 4: Follow the onscreen instructions

Step 5: Complete the initial assessment only. Do not complete the diagnostic section

All applicants to Myerscough College are required to take these tests and they must be completed by you.

You should allow yourself approximately 30 minutes for the Maths assessment and 30 minutes for the English assessment. They do not need to be taken at the same time.

Your apprenticeship cannot start until they have both been fully completed.

If you are unable to complete the assessments at home, we recommend that you take them at a library or your place of work (if applicable). Failing this we can make arrangements with your employer for them to be completed at the College or during the initial meeting.


We are here to help at every stage of your application. Contact us via email or call 01995 642255.
