To be considered for a place at British boarding schools, prospective students will have to sit entrance tests in English, Maths, non-verbal and verbal reasoning. For entry to Sixth Form, students usually take exams in their specialist subjects as well as Maths and English. Some schools will only accept applications from students who have taken UKiset test as the first step of the application process.
Based on entrance tests results students are invited to the interviews which can be done in person or online. Younger children have more general interviews about their favourite subjects at school, hobbies and interests. For older students the interviews are subject based and they may expect to be asked specific questions testing their knowledge and understanding on the variety of topics.
Cost of application and studies: registration fees vary between £100-350 for each school; tuition fees - from £35 000 per year
