CE TPR (AT 13+ AND CASE)

CE TPR

OVERVIEW

We offer Common Entrance (CE) theology, philosophy and religion (TPR) and TPR Roman Catholicism examinations at 13+, and as a scholarship examination (CASE) at 13+. Our TPR specification covers both papers; Roman Catholic entrants should study theology and the Roman Catholicism unit from the religion section of the specification. These specifications are designed by an experienced team of setters made up of experienced Heads of Department from both prep and senior schools, and approved by ISEB’s Academic Committee for Humanities. 

Our TPR syllabus aims to give pupils the opportunity to study the foundational biblical texts of the Judeo-Christian tradition, to learn to reason, argue and evaluate claims made by religious and non-religious belief systems, and to consider the theological, philosophical and religious responses to moral issues. 

The Roman Catholicism syllabus studies the foundational biblical texts for Roman Catholic Christianity, develops understanding of the beliefs, values, traditions and history of Roman Catholicism and develops skills relevant to the study of religion.

We Would like to remind schools of the importance of registering candidates for the right paper, so that the correct papers are sent to schools.

TPR for CE at 13+

Candidates taking CE TPR at 13+ will sit one paper, divided into three sections for theology, philosophy and religion. 

TPR for CASE at 13+

The CASE assessment in TPR is suitable for candidates who have studied either TPR or TPR (Roman Catholicism). Candidates taking CASE TPR will sit one paper, divided into two sections. Candidates must answer one question from Section 1, ‘General’, and one question from Section 2, ‘Theology and Religion’.

See the TPR specification below for more details.
