"Platinum Tuition is the only tuition centre that prepares your child for 13+ exams"
What is 13+?
The 13+ is a test (Common Entrance Exam) taken by children who are looking to transfer to senior school at 13+.
The 13+ exams are taken in the autumn, spring or – most usually – summer term of Year 8.
As well as the Maths, English and Science papers, children are usually required to take Common Entrance exams in a range of other subjects selected from:
- Classical Greek
- Mandarin Chinese
- Religious studies
In some subjects, there are also two or three levels of paper. It’s important to check which Common Entrance subjects your chosen school requires, and at which level. For example, some require a good mark on the level three maths paper – the highest level – whereas others are satisfied with level one or two.
The 13+ Common Entrance written exams are sat across a four-day period. The papers vary from 40 minutes to one and a quarter hours, although some tests – such as speaking and listening tests in languages, and mental arithmetic – are shorter.
At this level, children can also sit scholarship papers
