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.
