7+ & 8+ ENTRANCE EXAMS

There are two stages of intake to prep schools. Traditionally the exam at 8+ (in Year 3) was used to choose the students who would form the school’s next intake; now, the most selective schools seeking to get first claim on the most promising students test students at 7+ (in Year 2).

At 7+ and 8+ the core areas assessed are English, Maths and Verbal & Non-Verbal Reasoning. Due to high levels of competition, most of the children taking the exam will be familiar with the exam through one-to-one tuition. Whilst students are only young, parents recognise that a child’s prep school can have a measurable effect on their academic performance and the senior schools they may go on to.
