Common Entrance Exams

If your child is preparing for the common entrance exams either at age 11+, 13+ or 16+ our tutors can help you.

Home tutoring at this level can be very valuable as students can feel under a lot of pressure to achieve high grades in order to enter the private sector. The 13+ exam is taken in spring or the schools’ summer term. The 11+ exam is taken in January. Our 11+ tutors and 13+ tutors offer support and guidance for mathematics at this level.

Amadou can prepare children for their Common Entrance Exams and for the Scholarship papers set by various schools such as:

- Charterhouse School
- City of London Freemen's School
- Cranleigh School
- Duke of Kent School
- Epsom College
- Reed’s School
- Royal Grammar School, Guildford
- St. John’s School, Leatherhead
- Reigate Grammar School
- St George's, Weybridge

Common Entrance (11+ or 13+) is the exam taken by students aiming to secure a place at independent secondary schools.

The candidates generally sit the exams at their junior school and then the papers are sent to the senior school to which they are applying. The papers are set by the ISEB but each senior school sets its own pass mark and also marks the papers.

Some students choose to sit the Scholarship papers which are also set by the ISEB and some sit the Scholarship papers offered by some schools which are often harder, but can lead to assisted places.

At 16, after GCSE's boys and girls are able to move from state school to the independent sector. The entry level is increasingly dependent on your GCSE results and you can expect a lot of competition.
