The ISEB Pre-Tests

What is an invigilation centre?

An invigilation centre is where pupils will complete their Pre-Tests assessments.

An invigilation centre for the ISEB Pre-Tests could be:

– Current school: a UK prep school, maintained primary or junior school or international prep or junior school

– Senior School: if the pupil is sitting the test at one of the schools to which they have applied

– Non-school Venue: an approved independent exam venue, known as a ‘non-school venue’, such as a British Council or VICTVS centre

The Invigilation Centre Admin Portal

All invigilation centres will use their admin portal to organise, administer and coordinate tests for their venue.

If you are a new invigilation centre, please contact ISEB to request a new admin account, email:
