We select pupils for entry to Dover College through a rounded process including interview, a report from previous and/or current school and academic assessment.
The following examinations are used:
The 11 plus Examination
taken between the ages of 10 and 11. The 11+ test is sat in mid-September in Kent. Dover College’s 11+ scholarship trials take place in the November preceding the year of entry. To find out more about the Scholarship Trials, have a look at this page: scholarship trials
The Common Entrance Examination
from Preparatory Schools, taken normally at the age of 13 in June of each year.
The GCSE Examinations
