The 11 Plus is aimed at ensuring that the best children make it into grammar and private schools and without the best preparation possible, it’s easy to see why so many children fail to make the cut. With an experienced 11 Plus Tutor, your child can make great headway, even if they start preparing later on. Without the right preparation, even the most able students can fail the tests.
To increase their chances of passing, your child will need to work diligently through the 11-plus topics and perfect their exam technique.
These are just some of the strategies Geek School Tutoring teaches children – with the top scorer in Bexley’s 2015 exams coming from us, it’s clear that our method works. We’ve also seen students through the Sutton Tests, Kent Tests and several top-ranking private schools including Dulwich College, Trinity, Whitgift, Eltham College, St Dunstan’s, Colfe’s, Sydenham Girls, Old Palace Christ Hospital and more!
Unlike other exams like GCSEs and A Levels, 11-plus exams cannot be retaken. Your child will only have one chance to take them, and they not only need to pass (well), but they will also be competing against the cream of the crop. These are other children who are excellent in their work, many of whom have been tutored for most of their primary school lives.
As if that’s not enough pressure, your child will be expected to take a test that includes topics that are not taught in primary school as part of the National Curriculum, namely verbal and non-verbal reasoning.
