What is Common Entrance and the 13+ Examination?
The Common Entrance Examination (also known as CE or the 13+ Examination) is an examination still strongly supported by many of the top Prep and Independent Senior Schools in the UK. It is regarded as a rigorous and broad-based test; providing a strong academic focus for pupils in Years 7 and 8, an excellent preparation for GCSEs, and a good predictor for future academic potential.
Pupils sit for their Common Entrance Examination when they are in Year 8. Many of the best schools now offer pre-tests in Year 7, to identify suitable candidates. There are three examination sessions each year, generally in November, January and May/June.
There are a number of compulsory core subjects; which include English, Mathematics and Science. In addition, CE candidates can sit papers in a wide range of subjects chosen from: French, Geography, German, Classical Greek, History, Latin, Mandarin Chinese, Religious Studies and Spanish. Tuition for Common Entrance generally begins a year or two in advance of the exam.

A little more about Brighton
Brighton started as a village back in the 5th Century when the Saxons established the Kingdom of Sussex. Over the next few hundred years it was inhabited by Fishermen and Farmers and developed into a small town. It was given charter status in the 14th Century and thrived with weekly fish and food markets as well as an annual fair which brought in people from the wider surrounding areas. In Tudor times, it was burnt down by the French, but was rebuilt and successfully saw off further French attacks, although in later years French Naval Ships managed to bring about the decline of the fishing industry. The 1700s saw the decline of the town, brought about in part by sea erosion and damage caused by two great storms. Belief in the restorative powers of seawater, boosted by the visit of the Prince of Wales in 1783 saw a revival in Brighton’s fortunes. The Grammar School, Assembly Rooms, a covered market and the Brighton Pavilion, were symbolic of the newly found prosperity. The economy also diversified from fishing, with small scale foundries being set up, using coal that was being imported by sea from Newcastle. The rise of fashionable tourism also saw a rapid increase in the number of hotels, lodges and boarding houses, jewellery sellers and fashion houses. Brewing also became a local speciality. The following Century saw many new houses built, steam ship ferries and the London to Brighton Railway, The Hospital, Museum, Library and Aquarium all being opened and the two Piers being built. The twentieth century saw large scale regeneration of the sometimes squalid inner city, the cinema opening boating pool and sea front walkway completed. along with the introduction of the Bus and Tram Services. In the year 2000 Brighton and Hove was made a city and today is a flourishing sea-side town, visited by millions every year drawn by the shopping, festivals, arts scene and nightlife. Brighton has never been a major industrial town but as well as tourism the financial sector, retail, the booming conference and exhibition trade and the nearby Gatwick Airport all play a significant role.
The University of Sussex was opened in 1961 and along with the University of Brighton formed the Brighton and Sussex Medical School in 2003.
