About the Exam
Many of the top prep schools and independent senior schools in the UK trust the ISEB Common Entrance at 13+ exam to keep their academic standards high. Students take this exam when they are in Year 8, and it is considered a thorough preparation for the GCSEs. Students are required to sit for the compulsory subjects of Math, Science and English, and may select additional elective papers to sit for as well. The 13+ Math exam consists of two papers, each lasting 60 minutes, and a mental test that candidates may take up to 30 minutes to complete. The use of a calculator is allowed on one of the papers but is not allowed on the other. Testing for the two papers is given at three levels depending upon the skill level of the candidate, while the mental test is the same across all three levels.
