11 Plus tuition
We’ve got 12 years of experience under our belt
- Firstly, you need high levels of self-belief, confidence and a fearless approach.
- Secondly, you need regular structured time to practise, revise and recap.
- Thirdly, you need to be equipped with a good ability in core maths and English Skills
We know this through our experience coaching over 50,000 children in our centres and online, helping them practice their speed, hone their accuracy and master an exam technique to ace it on the day. The entrance exam that your child takes may differ depending on the area you live in and the school your child is looking to join. Two of the main exams are the CEM (Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring) and the GL Assessment.
Find out more about the differences between CEM and GL with example questions in our guides below.
