Many students opt to change schools for sixth form, and in a lot of cases this will require the student to sit a 16+ admissions test

Alongside results in public exams (most commonly a student’s GCSEs), school entry into Sixth Form might require the student to sit further entrance exams set by schools, in critical thinking or in their GCSE subjects. For entry into Sixth Form, they might also attend an interview, whilst the precise exams will vary from school to school.
