When do pupils sit the CE assessments?

Modified on Tue, 24 Oct 2023 at 04:05 PM

Pupils can sit the CE assessment at 11+ or 13+. Pupils sitting the 11+ will do so when they are in Year 6, mainly for entrance to senior independent girls’ schools. There are two examination sessions each year, in November and January, however, most pupils sit the examination in January.


Pupils sitting the 13+ will do so when they are in Year 8, and there are three examination sessions each year; in November, January and May/June. All pupils sit three compulsory papers; English, Mathematics and Science, and they may be required to sit additional papers in a wide range of subjects, including Geography, History, Classics, modern foreign languages, and Theology, Philosophy and Religion.


CASE exams are available at 13+ only.
