Selective Eligibility Test – 2021 entry
The next Selective Eligibility Test (SET) will be held on Tuesday 15th September 2020 and is for entry into secondary school in 2021.
The online registration form will be available to complete online from 1st May 2020. The closing date for the completion of the registration form is midnight on Friday 14th August 2020. No late registrations will be accepted under any circumstances. Please note there is an earlier deadline of 19th June 2020 for submission of requests for special adjustments for candidates with SEN, and for supporting evidence (see further information below).
Advice relating to the SET Test
The SET is made up of two papers; a multiple-choice maths paper and a multiple-choice English paper. Candidates record their answers on a separate answer sheet by filling in a lozenge-shape for answer A, B, C, D or E. You can download an example of the answer sheet below. If candidates change their mind about the answer, they need to rub out as fully as possible the wrong answer and replace it with the new answer. The exam papers take between 40 and 50 minutes each and there is a rest and toilet break between the two.
