6th Form entrance tests

If you wish to study HL Mathematics, Further Mathematics, HL Language or A Level Modern Language you will take a subject test and interview. All scholarship applicants must attend an entrance testing day.

International students who require an unconditional offer, or any student not taking GCSE or IGCSE qualifications will also need to sit an entrance test.

The tests are 30 minute assessments for each subject that the candidate wishes to study for A Level or IB (except for Italian ab initio SL where there is no entrance assessment).

In addition, there is an English Language aptitude test for those students not being taught through the medium of English at the moment.

The content of these assessments is broadly inline with GCSE / IGCSE curriculum requirements for the particular subject. We are used to assessing students from a wide range of educational backgrounds.

Entrance assessments must be done either:

  1. With us in Cambridge.
  2. At an authorised examination centre. For example at the candidate's own school if it is a testing centre for an internationally recognised qualification such as the International Baccalaureate or for Cambridge International Examinations.
  3. At the British Council.
