Roedean School 13 Plus Pretest Assessment
Pupils applying to join Roedean School for Year 9 entry are able to take advantage of the pre-testing option. In this case, candidates are required to sit the online ISEB Common Pretest in October or November of Year 6. These are age-standardised computer tests that measure cognitive ability, and they can be taken only once. The tests cover Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning, English and Maths. The pre-test is taken at a candidate’s prep school.
Roedean School Admissions Criteria
Conditional offers are made a few months after the pretest is taken. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to attend open mornings and taster days before the June deadline to reserve a place for Year 9 entry.
How to Prepare for the Roedean School Pretest for Year 9 entry
Roedean School has a reputation for high academic standards and competition for places is high. It is therefore worthwhile to spend some time helping your daughter to prepare for the pre-test examination.
At Pretest Plus, we design practice tests and courses that are well suited to students who are preparing for the Roedean School ISEB Common Pretest. Our practice tests help familiarise students with the layout of the actual tests, and can help them identify the kind of questions that might come up in the real exam.
Our online tests and courses can also help identify pupils’ strengths and weaknesses. With this information, students can focus their study where it is likely to be most effective. This will help ensure that preparation leading up to the examination is as efficient and effective as possible.
By sitting our pretest practice tests under exam conditions, students can also improve their time management skills. Through repetition of these tests, your child will get better at answering questions under pressure.
Each test covers all of the four subjects that come up in the real exam. These are Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning, Maths and English. After each test, students are able to review their answers, accompanied by detailed explanations of each question. Statistical averages are also provided, which give an indication of a student’s relative performance.
