Common entrance exams are used by the private sector only, and is not competitive (ISEB 13+). Students must have a conditional offer from the school in order to sit the test. These conditional offers are usually made on the basis of a pretest in year 6 or 7, by interview, by reference, or on a first-come first-served basis – sometimes a combination of these. The papers are set by ISEB but the school marks them. If the candidate achieves a passing grade, he or she will be admitted to the school.
The 11+ is a competitive exam and can be set by the LS (stte only), an individual school or group of schools, or by a separate provider (like ISEB and the CE exam board). The usually cover maths, English, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning. Ties are generally broken by consideration of distance (nearer having priority) or by lottery.
