Eleven Plus Revision Focus
Different families will have differing amounts of time available for revision. What we have done is structure a revision process around a four week period. If the time you have for eleven plus revision is longer or shorter then you can adjust accordingly.
This section aims to provide you with a plan together with suggested resources for delivering an ideal revision process over the last four weeks.
The Eleven Plus revision plan is split into three core areas
1/ Continuing to keep core skills fresh during the eleven plus revision process.
Many families make the mistake of just using papers for revision, in fact it is absolutely essential that children have mix of longer and shorter tasks and can continue to develop their core skills through the process.
2/ Using practice papers as part of the eleven plus revision process.
Practice papers are the core of a good revision programme but it is essential that they are not overdone. Where a child has been through a proper preparation and has already done lots of papers then gains will only be had from using papers in revision the right way. Doing paper after paper will deliver no noticeable benefit and in fact can be counter-productive. Find out what revision papers to use and how to use them as part of an effective revision process.
3/ Structuring 11 Plus Mock exams at home
One aspect of the 11 Plus exam which many parents don’t focus on is the stamina required to deliver a good result. Often children will face two (sometimes more) 50 minute exam papers (with a small break) in a new environment on a day full of pressure and stress. Doing some mock exam preparation at home can help children adjust to the level of stamina that will be required to deliver their best result. Find out how to use mock exams as part of an effective eleven plus revision plan, what papers to use and how to structure this at home.
