We have been sent details that may be of interest to you regarding the Independent Schools Examination Board's Common pre-test:

"From September, parents will be able to register for free on a separate ISEB portal and to indicate from a drop-down menu where they will be sitting the test. I will email parents of all registered applicants the link at the appropriate time. For your information here are two links that parents currently have access to, providing them with guidance on the Common Pre-test and information on preparing their children:
