ISEE Upper Level Exam

The Independent School Entrance Exam Upper Level, or ISEE Upper Level, is an admission test for students in 8th grade through 11th grade, who seek to apply for entrance to grades 9-12 at an independent school. The independent schools consist of private secondary schools, boarding schools, military academies, and a few public schools. During the three-hour examination, students will work through five sections, which include Verbal Reasoning (20 minutes for 40 questions), Quantitative Reasoning (35 minutes for 37 questions), Reading Comprehension (35 minutes for 36 questions), Mathematics Achievement (40 minutes for 47 questions), and an Essay (30 minutes for 1 prompt).

ISEE Upper Level Flashcards

Though the ISEE Upper Level has been made available online at Prometric testing offices in over 400 cities in both the United States and abroad, students may still choose to take the exam in a paper and pencil format. You should know that students can take the ISEE Upper Level exam only once every admission season when applying for entrance to a school. Additionally, the exam may not be taken for a practice attempt, as the student’s marks will be sent to the designated school. If an exam is taken more than once in an admission season, then schools will use the scores of the first attempt. Because schools are more likely to have slots available for grade 9 than grades 10-12, you should consider applying as early as possible to a school.

There is no set passing score for the ISEE Upper Level exam, so a student’s scores will need to be compared to the standards set by the school. While there is more to a student’s application than high marks, a good performance on the exam can help a student rise above other applicants.
