The ISEB Common Pretest is an online assessment that forms part of the selection process at a number of independent schools in the UK. The tests are normally taken by students in Year 6 or 7, for both 11+ and 13+ entry.

This practice test is designed to familiarise students with the online format, style and content of this multiple-choice test, so they feel confident and prepared for the actual assessment. Solutions and age-specific result statistics are provided.

While this practice test will be beneficial for all students sitting 11+ or 13+ pre-tests, it will prove especially useful for those taking the ISEB Common Pre-test.

You will have the option to take this practice test with 25% extra time. However, we only recommend choosing this option if you are sure your child will qualify for this extra time in the actual test.
