Each month your child will take a mock exam in each subject (Maths, English, VR and NVR). The exam papers are progressive and will gradually increase in difficulty throughout the mock exam course.
An additional ‘Maths Challenge’ examination will also be provided each month during the summer term of Year 5 and every month throughout the Year 6 course. The maths challenge papers reflect the much higher maths levels required for entry into the more demanding grammar and private schools including scholarships.
All students doing our main 11+ tuition courses are automatically placed on our monthly online mock exam course. Students from other tuition providers can also benefit from our monthly mock exams via our mock exam only courses.
Apart from providing regular exam practice, our monthly mock exams are a useful tool to regularly assess your child and monitor their progress.
Our monthly mock exam courses are available in Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6:
Year 4 mock exams run from November to July and aim to introduce your child to the 11 Plus exam process in a non-stressful and gradual way.
Year 5 mock exams run from October to July and are designed to enable your child to reach their full potential in a non-pressured way.
Our Year 6 mock exams run from September to December during the Autumn term each year and are set at an advanced level in preparation for the 2nd stage grammar and top private school exams & scholarship level.
While we do provide an element of help and teaching within our mock exam courses, we would like to emphasize that the mock exam only course is not a teaching course and should not be used to replace regular weekly 11+ tuition.
Our unique monthly mock exam courses provide children sitting 11+ exams with motivation, confidence and direction to help them on their 11+ journey to success.
We believe it is good to get children used to doing exams early so that they become familiar with the exam process in a more gradual and non-pressured way.
Most children sitting for the 11 plus will complete one to two years of regular weekly tuition. However, they rarely receive the same regular training on exam skills, timing, technique and focus.
At Mrs Jones Education, we are unique in providing regular monthly mock exam courses. Our exams gradually increase in difficulty to allow students to gain confidence and deepen their knowledge in each subject. We take your child to the next level to ensure they peak for the real 11+ exams.
We cover all four subjects – Math, English, Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning as required for the majority of 11+ examinations.
Most English examinations (for both grammar and independent schools) now include a substantial amount of verbal reasoning, cloze procedure (a mixture of comprehension and verbal reasoning) and vocabulary-based questions within their examinations.
Additionally, most maths papers include a large element of word problems numerical and logical reasoning, critical thinking and analysis. These require the use of both verbal and non-verbal skills and techniques.
Many schools will test all 4 subjects – either separately or as individual sections within a single examination. Furthermore, schools can (and frequently do!) decide to change the subjects they test at short notice.
At Mrs Jones Education, we thoroughly tutor your child in all 4 subjects so that they are fully prepared for all selective school 11+ entrance exams.
The students will complete a timed examination in each subject and complete the ‘live’ computer answer forms (just as in the real 11+ examinations).
We also provide a ‘practice’ exam and answer form in each subject which your child can choose to do first before going to the live exams and answer forms which are all strictly timed.
The practice exams include help and hints with the more tricky Maths and English questions and a quick reminder /demonstration of the techniques to use for the different types of VR and NVR questions.
For flexibility, each month’s mock exams will be available for 2 weeks. This gives your child plenty of time to do the exams when it suits and allows them enough time to do the ‘practice’ exams first as needed.
To provide even more flexibility, we have created single subject exams enabling your child to do each exam subject individually at a time when it suits them. This system also enables you to select the exam subjects relevant to your target school(s) or to focus on a specific subject where your child needs more practice.
Each month, you will receive a detailed report and feedback for each subject highlighting any areas requiring improvement and any timing issues your child may have. This enables you to monitor your child’s monthly progress and helps pinpoint weaker areas on which to focus revision.
We also include detailed video explanations of the answers for the more challenging maths papers provided during Year 5 and Year 6 and a chance to practice the exam paper again for extra revision and to help consolidate the maths methods and techniques required.
Answer sheets are scanned using OCR software as used by the examination boards giving your child the opportunity to eliminate any potential lost marks due to incorrectly marking the sheets.
Our mock exam papers are thoroughly tested and are created so that they are as close as possible to the real exams. For copyright reasons, we do not release the full papers to parents. However, our detailed report feedback will enable you to identify your child’s weak spots and/or any timing issues they may have.
The course is designed to fully prepare your child for all grammar and private independent schools and for all examination boards including GL, CEM and ISEB.
Our exam papers gradually increase in difficulty each month to allow students to gain confidence and deepen their knowledge in each subject
During the summer term of Year 5 and into the Autumn term of Year 6, we include additional ‘Challenge’ papers which provide extra exam practice for the harder grammar and independent school entrance examinations.
Our Year 6 mock exams run from September to December each year and are set at an advanced level in preparation for the 2nd stage grammar and top private school exams & scholarship level.
We teach to the high levels required for entry to the top grammar and private schools including 2nd stage grammar and scholarship level in Year 6.
We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality teaching and resources to enable children to perform at their best. Our courses are challenging and tailored to the most competitive schools. We find our unique online course structure particularly suits those children most likely to gain a place into a top Grammar and /or Independent school.
