Independent School Mock Exams

Independent School Mock Exams

Independent Schools set their own Mock Exams for entrance to their institution. These exams are usually comprised of certain characteristics based on what the school is looking for from students. We have done a lot of research and insight into the types of factors these Independent secondary schools look for and will be happy to share them with you.

What we have created are excellent entrance mock Exams based on our hard work. Therefore, we deliver to you a series of exams and tests for your child to sit, so that we can clearly assess their ranking and performance on the key areas. These are summarised below in terms of what we cover through our examination process:

High standard Independent school Mock Exams covering all of the key areas tested;

This includes Comprehension, English Verbal Reasoning, Creative Writing, Short question Maths and multi part Maths Questions. We also have Non Verbal Reasoning in some cases;

Our questions are both multiple choice and written. So we offer you something that very few mock centres offer which is marking of written questions;

Our feedback to you is very specific to your child and their performance in these mock exams. Note that the Mock tests provide a VERY GOOD indicative view of how students perform in the real sitting;

Our centre is based primarily in Feltham and we offer Independent School Mock Exams provided we can get at least 10 students to enroll. This is because it provides us the basis to compare students against each other and give you a ranking and view of their relative performance.

Independent School Mock tests. What is covered?

Our Independent School Mock Exam tests are designed to give your child the relevant practice they require for these types of schools. We want to make sure that your child is fully prepared for their pending exams. Therefore, it is important to have the full preparation necessary

To see our details for tuition, please see this link. We primarily provide block summer tuition but in the run up to Independent school exams, we will provide practice tests at our dedicated centre and institution:

  1. Our exams are tailored to fit in with what Independent schools test children on. These are encompassing a variety of core parts of the syllabus;
  2. The areas of testing that Independent schools undertake is in English, Maths, Verbal & Non Verbal Reasoning. However, its not that straight forward;
  3. English is typically split into Comprehension (around 1 page text followed by about 10 questions. Time 30 minutes) and Creative Writing (30 minutes creative writing based on writing about a given sentence);
  4. Maths is split into some standard Operational Questions and then the balance of the paper is comprised of harder and longer multi part questions. (So typically around 60 minutes with 10 Operational and simple questions followed by 20 longer multi part or worded questions);
  5. Finally, some schools do decide to also test on Verbal & Non-Verbal Reasoning. This is covered off in the section to the right

Independent School Mock tests – Verbal & Non-Verbal Reasoning

So what is Verbal Reasoning? I think this article here explains it quite well. See this link

What is Non-Verbal Reasoning? See this link here where we have some examples

The questions are NOT always tested by Independent Schools. If they are tested by Independent schools, then we would expect both Verbal & Non-Verbal Reasoning to be no more than a total of 30% of the Exam mark. This is an absolute maximum.

  1. Our approach is therefore to have a tailor made and purpose designed Independent School exam based on which school your child is due to sit exams for;
  2. We will take out Verbal and/or Non Verbal Reasoning if the area is not tested in the exams. This is something that is unique and no other testing centre provide such a personalised service. We will replace these questions with English and/or Maths questions;
  3. If Verbal and/or Verbal Reasoning are tested, we will provide a large variety of questions to give a wider exposure to your child for the types of questions that may be tested.

We want to provide you with the very best in Independent School Mock Exams and practice. This is our aim. Our VR & NVR testing will cover this
