What is the 13+ or Common Entrance Exam?

The 13+ or Common Entrance Exam is taken by pupils as part of the admissions process for Year 9 entry into academically selective Independent Schools at age 13. Common Entrance consists of examinations in Mathematics (three papers: a mental mathematics paper, plus written non-calculator and calculator), English (two papers), Geography, History, Religious Studies, Latin, Classical Greek, plus either a specialist Physics, Chemistry and Biology or a Combined Science. There can also be a choice of four languages: Spanish, French, German or Mandarin, assessed via listening, spoken and written papers. The only compulsory elements of the Common Entrance Exam are Maths, English and a Science, with each schools offering their own combination and subject requirements.

The Common Entrance Pre-Test

An increasing number of the most competitive Independent Schools have introduced a process of pre-testing, in response to increased demand for their places. It helps a school short-list the increasing number of applications that they receive, providing them with a earlier indicator of whether a child would be suitable for their school at age 10 or 11, as opposed to age 12 or 13. Pre-testing now often forms the first stage of the admissions process and normally takes place in Year 6 or 7. Children who perform well at this stage are usually offered a place, conditional to them passing Common Entrance in Year 8.

The Common Entrance Exam

There are three times each year that Common Entrance Exams take place: January, June (the most common month) or November. Candidates usually sit the Common Entrance Exam papers at their own Prep Schools and these are often marked by the preferred Senior School, who mark them immediately and will, if necessary, arrange with the Prep School to forward the papers to a second-choice school should the performance fall below the level of the first-choice school. Many schools also use the Common Entrance Exam results as the basis for awarding academic scholarships, but often may also carry out their own interviews, tests, or further examinations. Artistic, musical or sporting achievements are not examined by Common Entrance, but may be taken into account by reports or other means.

Because we only ever work with qualified and experienced 13+ teachers in Buckinghamshire, you will always get a highly experienced teacher who is safe, reliable and up to speed with the current curriculum and exam requirements. There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our 13+ teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a 13+ tutor coming to your home in Buckinghamshire to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the 13+ tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the 13+ tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the 13+ tutor is required to travel to your home, in Buckinghamshire. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your 13+ tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your 13+ tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of 13+ tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group 13+ tuition in Buckinghamshire depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
