UK Boarding School Admissions Preparation  
The UK has an excellent reputation of having some of the best boarding schools in the world, both in academia and beyond. Many of the students who completed their IGCSEs and IB Diplomas or A-Levels went on to study at some of the most prestigious universities in the world. The unique boarding school system provides a tremendous all rounded environment for students to develop their social skills, ability to be independent and many other personal interests, while excelling in their academic careers. It provides an ideal platform that helps to shape well-rounded individuals and prepares them to the adult world ahead.
How to enter UK boarding schools?
The application process involves a number of steps and usually takes two or more years. For most of the boarding schools, 11+ (Year 7), 13+ (Year 9) and 16+ (Year 12) are some of the common entrance points. Common Entrance test assessments are used for a large number of schools. In addition, many of the boarding schools set their own assessments to ensure students satisfy the schools’ entry requirements. After the assessments, some schools may request students to attend individual interviews. Offers are made shortly after. Competition for places is generally fierce amongst the top boarding schools.
