The Lancing College 13 Plus Pretest Assessment
Students have the opportunity to gain early entry to Lancing College through the Advance Programme (from 2021 entry onwards), which aims to identify candidates with the highest potential to excel at the school. The programme will be open for applications in the Advent Term of Year 6, and is designed to gauge pupils’ strengths in academic, sporting and other areas.
Once registered for 13 Plus entry, students applying via the Lancing Advance Programme entry point are required to take the ISEB Common Pretest in Year 6 at their current school.
The ISEB Common Pretest is designed to provide schools with an overview of a student’s academic potential over several core subjects: English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning.
The test, which cannot be repeated, is age-standardised to ensure that no student taking part has an unfair advantage. For more information on the pretest, read our post The ISEB Common Pretest: What You Need to Know.

How to Prepare for the Lancing College Pretest
The sooner students start preparing for the pretest, the more time they’ll have to improve any weak areas. At Pretest Plus, we believe one of the most effective ways to prepare for the pretest is to use our online pretest practice tests and courses, which are specifically designed to help your child perform to the best of their ability on test day.
Students’ exam technique can be improved through practice. Our practice tests help familiarise students with the layout and style of the exam. They can also help identify any weak areas , which can then be worked upon and improved through focused study. Taking the practice tests will also help students get accustomed to answering questions under time pressure.
Our online tests and courses cover Maths, English, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning. Once students have completed the tests, they are able to look over their answers and receive prompt feedback about each question in the form of detailed written explanations. Ranking statistics also provided to give an indication of your child’s relative performance.
