Mocks are important but remember to do proper revision, not just papers.

Mocks help children get used to the pressures of the day. Beyond that many parents make the mistake of just doing papers in the final month or so. In fact, for best results children need to do a mix of revision work including both papers and learning enforcement activities. There are no books which do this but there are structured courses which can be really useful.   The courses we suggest are :

These courses are really intensive so watch out! They have a great mix of both papers and learning enforcement so are ideal for the time running up to the exam. We suggest some families may find it more useful to tackle them over six weeks rather than the four weeks suggested.

Points to remember when thinking about 11 Plus Mock Exams

  • Prepare for the mock exam day in advance, treat it as if it were the real thing.
  • Imagine you are going to the real thing so leave in plenty of time for the test.
  • Remember that a great deal of the value the children get from mock exams is the experience of the day itself- the expectation, strange people, strange room, the stamina required and the exam conditions.
  • While the result will be interesting it is what you do afterwards to improve further which is really important.
  • Not all mock exams are the same, cost the same or provide the same reports so choose carefully.
  • It’s often a good idea to do more than one mock exam to make sure nerves are less of an issue on the day itself.

Mock exams can be expensive but in our view they are well worth it.
