What is the Common Entrance Exam?

The Common Entrance Examinations which are set by the Independent Schools Examinations Board (ISEB) are taken as a part of the admissions process for academically selective secondary schools at age 11 or 13.

At All-Round Education Academy, our goal is to ensure that our students will pass the ACT Exam and gain the fundamental knowledge required for this exam, as well as the provision of enough supplementary material that can benefit their individual learning needs, such as past paper analysis and lessons that are tailored to the student’s abilities and progress.
