About the Exam
The ISEB Common Entrance exam is used by some of the top independent secondary and preparatory schools in the UK to assess comprehension across a variety of subjects. It is also considered an excellent preparatory tool for the GCSE exams. Exams are given three times per year in January, May/June and November. Testing in three core subjects, English, math and science, is required, but students may select from range of additional topics, such as geography, French or history, for additional testing.
The exam tests scientific knowledge, including biology, physics, chemistry, at two different levels. The level one test is comprised of one paper made up of an equal number of open and closed ended biology, chemistry and physics questions. The exam takes one hour to complete, and protractors and calculators are permitted. Level two testing is made up of three papers, one each in the subjects of biology, chemistry and physics. Each subject paper must be completed in 40 minutes and is made up of both open and closed questions. Calculators and protractors are allowed for testing at level two.
