CUNY Assessment Tests (CAT)

CAT Basic Skills Tests in Reading, Writing & Mathematics

As part of the admissions process at CUNY, students are required to demonstrate their competence in Reading, Writing and Mathematics.

The CUNY Assessment Tests are critical in measuring your readiness for college success. These high-stakes tests evaluate your competency in areas of Reading, Writing, and Mathematics. Results will determine your admissions to four-year colleges and enrollment directly into credit bearing courses, Mathematics and Writing workshops (currently York do not offer Reading workshops), and or ESL.
