For our Year 6 Track 13+ computer test we do not provide practice materials but we provide a familiarisation website for parents and children. Please refer to: https://www.intuproject.org/CEMSelect/CSFamiliarisation.html

Please note: CEM’s assessment familiarisations use Adobe Flash which does not run on iOS. Please open on a Windows or Mac OS X computer enabled with Adobe Flash. The familiarisations will not open on iPhone and iPad as these do not support Adobe Flash.

We may also have a limited number of 13+ places available to candidates in Year 8, however this can not be guaranteed. Applications should only be made after an initial enquiry to confirm availability. Assessment is by written examination in English, Mathematics, Science and French, with the option of Latin. Individual interviews are held for candidates who have performed sufficiently well in the test papers. Sample papers are available on request.  From the 2020 intake onwards the Year 8 Track will no longer be available, with chance vacancies only.

14+ Candidate Resident in the UK

Candidates for entry at 14+ (Year 10) are assessed by interview and written examinations in English, Mathematics, Science and French; applications should only be made after initial enquiry to confirm availability.  Sample papers are available on request.

16+ UK Entry

Sixth Form candidates are encouraged to apply in the Autumn Term of the year preceding entry, and are generally required to have a minimum of 2 A and 3 B grades (or the numerical equivalent, A = 7, B = 6) at GCSE, with some subject-specific requirements. We request confidential references and predicted grades from candidates’ schools, and based on this information, those who appear to be most likely to be academically suitable are invited to interview. Offers are made to successful candidates, conditional upon achieving the required GCSE grades.

A wide variety of Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries are available to candidates resident in the UK.

We encourage prospective pupils and parents to visit the School – either on one of our Open Mornings or by special arrangement for a personalised tour.

Please contact Angela Hedger, Assistant Registrar (UK), for further information: 020 8906 7923, angela@millhill.org.uk

For Candidates Resident Overseas (13+, 14+, 16+)

Candidates resident outside the UK should first contact the Admissions Team to check availability of places, and should then submit their two most recent school reports, which will enable us to advise on the suitability of the academic profile. Suitable candidates will be advised to register and arrangements will be made for testing either at Mill Hill School or at an approved agency overseas, including the candidate’s current school.

For 13+ (Year 9) and 14+ (Year 10) entry examinations will be taken in English as an Additional Language and Mathematics. An interview will be conducted either face-to-face or by Skype for candidates who are successful in the written tests.

For 16+ candidates (Sixth Form) examinations will be taken in English (or English as an Additional Language) and, depending on subject choice, further tests in the subjects for which they are applying to study at A Level. An interview will be conducted either face-to-face or by Skype for candidates who are successful in the written tests.
