Examination and offer of a place
Examinations can be taken either at The King’s School or, if overseas, at the nearest British Council Office.

The total length of the exam is 3 hours, allowing for short breaks between each section.

The examinations will be online tests and will include:

  • Part 1 (Spatial) 30 minutes
  • Part 2 (Verbal) 40 minutes
  • Part 3 (Numerical) 40 minutes
  • Part 4 (an English written paper consisting of a comprehension exercise and a creative writing task) 40 minutes

Examinations are accompanied by an interview with the Registrar, either at King’s or by Skype.

Alongside the results of these tests, individual character and circumstance together with the ability to contribute widely to the extensive range of co-curricular activities are also taken into consideration.


Offer of a place and House allocation
The offer of a place will be dependent on satisfactory performance in the King’s entrance examination and interview.
Allocation to a House will be largely dependent on existing vacancies within the year group.


Confirmation of a place
A place is confirmed through the payment of a deposit.
