On the day, candidates will take a computer-based test which measures the verbal, non-verbal and mathematical skills that form the foundations of further learning.

For our Year 6 Track 13+ computer based test we do not provide practice materials but there is 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.

Chance Vacancies for Fourth Form (13+) September 2021

Chance Vacancy candidates are invited to sit a computer-based entrance examination at Mill Hill School at the end of the Autumn Term (date to be confirmed), using the CEM Select Reasoning Tests lasting approximately one hour and a 30-minute English Composition test.  For the computer based test we do not provide practice materials, but there is a familiarisation website for parents and children; please refer to:

https://www.intuproject.org/CEMSelect/CSFamiliarisation.html

Please note: CEM’s assessment familiarisations are designed for desktop use ONLY. The website uses 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 phones and tables as these do not support Adobe Flash. Depending on your browser and settings, you may need to enable Flash content from the tootlbar or browser settings. 

The test results, combined with school reports and references, will enable us to create a ranked waiting list, which will inform our decisions about potential offers.  By the end of this term, we anticipate being in a position to confirm whether your child has qualified for the Waiting List, and their position on it.  A clearer picture of availability will have emerged by the beginning of the Summer Term, 2021, and some Chance Vacancy offers may be made before this date.

If you would like your child to be considered for a Chance Vacancy, please complete the registration form via the link below, by Friday 13 November, 2021.  A non-refundable registration fee of £150 is payable on registration.

14+ Candidates Resident in the UK

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

16+ Candidates Resident in the UK

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 two 7 and three 6 grades 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/Fourth Form) and 14+ (Year 10/Remove) 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.
