Common Entrance

Malvern College requires a 50% Common Entrance pass mark. For the intake into our Foundation Year in September 2020 the average pass mark was 65%. However, if the pupil is not studying for the Common Entrance we have our own Entrance Test. Malvern College is also delighted to be working with pupils and schools undertaking the Pre-Senior Baccalaureate (PSB).
