about the ISEE

The ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam) is a popular admissions test used by many independent schools to assess the academic abilities of applicants. It consists of five sections: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Math Achievement, and an Essay. Most students take the exam in December or January when applying to a private school.
