How does candidate registration for CE exams work?

Modified on Tue, 24 Oct, 2023 at 4:25 PM

Schools will register candidates for CE at 11+ and 13+, CASE, iPQ and Exploring the Ancient World (Classics for All) through the Schools Hub on our website.

Schools will need an ISEB School Account to access product specific registration pages on the website and submit candidates.

Many schools will already have an account used to place orders for past CE, and CASE exam papers on our online shop, registrations for CE, CASE and iPQ are completed through this same portal. If your school does not have an account, they will be able to create one through the Qualification & Registration page on our website.

Once logged into your ISEB School Account, navigate to the Schools Hub, where you will then have access to registration areas for the different qualifications: CE, CASE, iPQ and Exploring the Ancient World Project Qualification (Classics for All).

Click on the required qualification area and download the Candidate Registration Upload Template spreadsheets. Populate this spreadsheet with the information for each candidate using the drop-downs to select the appropriate subject and/or level/s. These registration upload spreadsheets mean schools no longer need to enter candidates one-by-one and can be completed outside of the registration at the school's leisure. For detailed guidance on completing this spreadsheet take a look at our solution article: How do schools complete the Candidate Registration Upload Template spreadsheets?

Once this document is completed, save the file as a CSV (Comma delimited) by selecting the option in the drop-down file type.

Navigate back to the Schools Hub and complete the online form detailing your information, school and contact details. You will then be able to upload the CSV file using the ‘Browse’ option. Accept our Terms & Conditions and click submit. The online form should only take a few minutes to complete.

Once submitted, you will see a record of registrations under the ‘Registrations’ section of your ISEB School Account. You can download the submitted files and make changes through this account. 

Please note candidates can not be uploaded through the system if they have not got a marking school selected in the spreadsheet drop-down, previously known as 'undecided'. Users are encouraged to upload once all candidates have confirmed their preferred senior school, as there is no benefit to uploading sooner. Alternatively, you can either select 'internal marking' or upload an updated spreadsheet at a later date to include these individuals, provided it is within the registration deadline.

We recommend schools coordinate between all staff who may be required to submit candidates, as only one spreadsheet can be submitted per school. The system has been designed in a way to disregard any previous uploaded spreadsheets in favour of the most recent upload, and as such, only one spreadsheet will be recorded for each school, per ISEB School Account.
