ISEB Pre-test Accelerator

Master the ISEB Pre-assessment and secure your path to top UK independent schools.

Course Introduction

The ISEB (Independent Schools Examination Board) Pre-Assessment test is now widely used by the UK's leading Independent Schools to assess the suitability of students. The test is used by schools to assess students at 11+, 12+ and occasionally 13+ entry.


The test is split into 4 key areas: English, Mathematics, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning and the test takes approximately 21/2 hours to complete. Academic Asia is an accredited centre for ISEB test administration and so students may also sit their final assessment with us.


Large parts of the ISEB assessment are not taught as part of a normal HK school curriculum and specific preparation is therefore strongly recommended for this important assessment. A list of UK schools that use the ISEB pre-assessment can be found by clicking here.

After Giles conducted her assessments, he patiently explained her weaknesses and strengths to us. He suggested which courses she should take and the duration of each. Since taking the lessons, she has gained more confidence and skills in answering questions. She really enjoys her lessons with Giles.
