11+ Entrance Exams | Top Tips to Get Them In To A Top UK Independent School
Updated: Feb 5, 2021
Are you looking to secure your child a place at a top UK independent school? If you are, then your child will need to sit a range of examinations, the most common entry points being 7+, 11+ and 13+.
Here are some helpful hints and tips about preparing your child for the Common Entrance Exams.
What subjects should they study?
Most independent schools tend to test Maths, English, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning. Therefore, it is essential to try and improve in all of these areas.
When should they start studying? We recommend preparing at least one year before your exams. Most clients tend to opt for 1-2 hours of weekly tuition and increase the number of sessions in the months leading up to the exams.
How do you prepare them for an interview?
Try not to over prepare them for the interview. Schools can tell a mile off if a child has been coached and it is far better to allow their true personalities and interests to shine through.
