What to expect from our 11-plus revision course

During the course – revision, exam technique and mock exam

We will cover the major topics for each subject. The  sessions will be as interactive as possible allowing time for your child to fill the gaps in their learning.

Your child will answer exam questions to improve their exam technique. Tutors describe the different types of exam questions and explain how best to answer them to gain full marks. Whilst students are working independently tutors will give individual support.

During the last two days of the course there will be a formal mock exam in Maths and Verbal Reasoning. These will be taken under exam conditions. Afterwards the exam tutors will discuss some of the questions so that the children can learn from their mistakes.

At the end of the course then a written feedback report will be emailed to the parents
