ISEE Tutoring & Test Preparation
The ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam) is an independently designed entrance exam for elementary, middle, and high schools. ISEE exams are designed by Educational Records Bureau (ERB). Much like how the SAT and/or ACT is required by most colleges as a way to standardize the admissions process and compare students, the ISEE is one way that many private schools standardize their admissions. Students take the exam at a testing site location and may choose to send their score reports to multiple schools. Again like the SAT and ACT, the scoring is not handled by the schools themselves.
There are different ISEE exams of varying difficulty designed for admission to specific grade levels. The “Lower Level” exam is used for fifth and sixth grade admissions; the “Middle Level” exam is used for seventh and eighth grade admissions; and the “Upper Level” exam is used for ninth, tenth, and eleventh grade admissions.
All tests consist of these five sections:
- Verbal Reasoning
- Quantitative Reasoning
- Reading Comprehension
- Mathematics Achievement
The total duration of the exam ranges from 2 hours and 20 minutes, to 2 hours and 40 minutes.
Students must wait at least six months to retake the ISEE. This is long enough to drastically impact the course of one’s education, especially at lower grade levels. Practically speaking, therefore, students really only have one opportunity to excel on this exam. And considering private schools are highly competitive and can hugely impact the course of one’s academic career, the ISEE must be taken seriously.
