ISEE : Independent School Entrance Examination

The Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE) is a three-hour exam administered by the Educational Records Bureau (ERB). The ISEE is used to assess a student's ability in key subject areas and determine if he or she meets the criteria for admission to private middle schools and high schools. Not all private secondary schools require the ISEE. Consult your choice school's guidance counselor to determine if you have to take it.

The ISEE consists of a series of multiple-choice questions divided into four scored sections, two unscored sections, and an essay:

  • verbal reasoning,
  • quantitative reasoning,
  • reading comprehension,
  • math achievement

After you have completed the four sections you will have 30 minutes to write an essay that will be given to schools so they determine your writing ability.

The test is administered on three levels:

  • Lower for students in the 4th and 5th grades applying to the 5th and 6th grades
  • Middle for students in 6th and 7th grades applying to the 7th and 8th grades
  • Upper for students in 8th grade and above applying to the 9th grade and above

The same test is given to both middle and upper levels; however they are scored differently.

Test dates vary from state to state. Consult your local guidance counselor for more information.
