We offer Mathematics exams for CE at 11+ and 13+, as well as CASE exams at 13+.

At 11+, candidates will sit one paper which begins with approximately eight straightforward, 1-mark questions testing basic numeracy. Marks will be awarded for the correct answer and working need not be shown. This section is followed by worded questions which require working to be shown.

At 13+, we offer the CE Mathematics examination at three levels. These are Foundation (Non-Calculator and Calculator papers), Core (Non-Calculator and Calculator papers) and Additional. All candidates take either Foundation or Core papers, and some candidates who take Core may also take the Additional paper. All candidates are expected to sit the mental arithmetic test, no matter which level they are taking.

The CASE assessment for Mathematics is based on the Core/Additional sections of the 13+ Mathematics specification and is designed to challenge the most able candidates. Candidates taking CASE Mathematics will sit one paper, divided into two sections. In Section A, candidates are expected to answer all the questions. Section B is more demanding and candidates will be told to attempt as many questions as they can.

We advise prep schools to liaise with senior schools about the levels at which pupils should sit the exam, and ensure that each candidate is registered for the appropriate level so that they receive the correct papers for the exam.
