St Albans School 12+, 13+ Exam Styles

  • Please note that 13+ applicants are only required to sit papers in English, Maths and Verbal Reasoning only, along with interviews. The procedure remains unchanged for the combined 13+ Entrance and Scholarship examinations.
  • In the June of Year 7, schools provide a 12+ preliminary assessment for boys for whom St Albans School is their first choice. This is recommended for boys who are not considering other schools, as a substantial reservation fee is requested before the results of the other Schools’ competitive entry tests are known. The assessment consists of exams in English, Maths, a Verbal Reasoning test and a number of short group interviews. Based on this assessment, school may offer a place for entry into Third Form the following September. Alternatively, school may suggest a further attempt at entry via the competitive Entrance Examination at the end of January or beginning of February, or suggest that the candidate and his parents reconsider their choice of school in consultation with the Head of the Prep School.
  • Those applicants wanted to be considered for Scholarships, regardless of whether they already hold an offer following the 12+ Preliminary Assessment, sit papers over three days at the end of the January prior to entry. Boys who want to enter the School at 13+ the following September without attempting the Scholarship and have not secured a conditional place prior to this within the Preliminary Assessments, will sit a selection of the same exams (over a two-day period) but are not in direct competition with the Scholarship applicants. These exams take place during the final week of January.
