About Chicago’s Selective Enrollment Exam:

The Selective Enrollment Exam is part of the criteria for selection into Chicago’s Selective enrollment high schools.

Eligibility to take the entrance examination is based on the student’s 7th grade standardized test scores in reading and mathematics.

Admission is based on an application score that balances entrance exam results (worth 1/3 of the 900-point possible score) with 7th grade standardized test scores (1/3) and 7th grade GPA (1/3).
