LEARNING EXAM TECHNIQUE

We don't believe in hot-housing students. We do believe in learning how to convey understanding of a topic is often as important as knowing the content of a course. 11+ tutorials

  • allow students lots of time to practice

  • provide and discuss model answers

  • discuss common pitfalls

  • don't just focus on doing exam papers

Our 11+ tutorials give student's the freedom to practice the skills they will need for the 11+ exam in contexts which are applicable to real life

SPECIFIC FEEDBACK TO UP-LEVEL WORK

Aside from lots of practice, students that do well at 11+ are those that are able to reflect on feedback and flexibly respond to this feedback.

Having regular and specific feedback allows students to focus on hitting target grades and up-levelling.

Tutors at this level will:

  • provide specific advice and feedback

  • focus on examination assessment objectives

  • give written reports delivered by email after every lesson detailing how students can improve their work.

STRESS FREE

Our goal is to make things as easy as possible for parents and as academically invigorating as possible for students.

  • All tutors are DBS checked. Once enrolled, we will send you a selection of tutors to pick from.

  • Once you've picked your favoured tutor we'll organise a free introductory tutorial at your convenience.

  • All invoices can be paid easily at the end of every month with one click.

What should you expect in the 7 plus?

For students applying to prep schools, they may be asked to take a pre-prep assessment in English, Maths, Verbal and Non-verbal reasoning. These exams have the potential to be worrisome for both parents and students. However, there is no need to fret!

Here's the key info:

  • Taken by students in Year 2

  • Usually in January (but occasionally at other times)

  • Maths, English and often Verbal and Non-verbal reasoning assessed

  • May involve an informal 'interview' with the head

  • Schools will usually request a student report from the student's current school

To get a better idea of what to expect in each area we have split things up into the main categories of assessment below. Have a browse below to see what to expect for each section and how you can help. If you are looking for specific advice or want us to answer a question directly then send us a quick message  and we will get back to you in double quick time.


Need to ask us a specific question about the 7+? Or just want to talk to someone free of charge about your child's situation? Get in contact and we'll schedule a free telephone consultation.
