The ERB allows students to take the ISEE a maximum of 3 times per year. Students can take the ISEE once per testing season. However, since most schools have score submission deadlines in January or, at the latest, early February, most students will only have the opportunity to take the test twice (once in Fall, and once in Winter). You have the option of registering for the ISEE in select school locations (given on paper) at a Prometric Center (given on a computer). The Primary level is only offered on a computer.
Here’s the link to register for the ISEE on ERB’s website: https://www.erblearn.org/parents/isee-registration. Please note registration opens on August 1st.
Below is the testing season breakdown by month:
Our recommendation to most families is to register for two test dates. We recommend scheduling the first test date in October or November and a second test in December or January depending on the deadlines of the schools you’re applying to. This way, students avoid the anxiety associated with having only one chance to test, and also have a backup test date in case of unforeseen circumstances (e.g. sickness, proctoring mishaps, distractions during the test). ISEE scores will typically be available in your online portal within a few days of the test date.
