With increasing emphasis being placed on examinations and the competitive nature of school admissions processes, parents are finding it more challenging than ever to support their child through the key entry and exit points of the education system.
Whilst a child may have a secure understanding of the curriculum, parents can be surprised to find that their child’s exam results do not reflect their academic potential. The format and pressure of an exam can often leave children feeling unprepared, ultimately damaging their confidence.
When preparing for 7+, 11+ or 13+, each school will adopt their own approach to entrance exams as a way of selecting the most appropriate students.
Exams can require multiple choice responses, be completed online or be in the traditional written format. This can make the admissions process and how best to prepare for each exam confusing.
It is essential however, that children have a secure understanding of exam technique and approaches alongside their curriculum knowledge in order to reach their school of choice.
