11+ Mock Exams for Grammar and Independent Schools (London & Home Counties)

This is a reminder that The Learning Hub is now taking bookings for its renowned 11plus Mock Exams and places are filling up very fast. Our experience of previous years have shown that many parents in the past have felt that their child had missed out on these crucial exams as places are allocated on a first come first served basis.

As Grammar and Independent Schools places have become very limited due to the large demand these exams generate the 11plus Mock Exams are now a crucial part of the 11plus preparation and designed to broaden the experience for the child as it is targeted towards them having a more structured and logically approach.

Remember that in some areas there are 12 students competing for every place and as demand for grammar school places soars this situation will only get worse.

By sitting our 11plus Mock Exam in April and June, you will be able to understand your child’s strengths and weaknesses and where to best focus their revision in the coming months. Our statistics prove that students who sit 11plus Mock Exams will ‘on average’ see their Exam scores increase by 15 – 20% at their next exam sitting. This can be the difference between you succeeding at your first choice school and not scoring enough marks to gain a grammar school place.

The 11plus exams are designed to be realistic and will last for approximately 3.5 hours in total with breaks and the subjects covered will be:

Verbal Reasoning
Mathematics
English

These Mock exams are also an important feedback indicator to parents on what is required for their child to be successful in the final ones. With FULL review of the papers given to the students the following week and papers given to students to take home.

11+ Mock Exams Results – Grammar & Independent Schools – Henrietta Barnet, QE Boys & Bucks

August 12 – 11+ Mock Test Results

 The August 2012 mock tests went down well with the children enjoying and appreciating the whole experience. Confidence is now rocketing sky high with the children seeing the fruits of their hard work and the benefits in their improvements.

Our congratulation goes to all the students who took part for their enthusiasm and dedication. It was great to see them all mentally focussed and working hard during the exams.

Overall, we found all the children had improved since the July Mock Test by many Reasoning Quotient points but a special mention goes to the following students whose improvement was on average greater than 22 Reasoning Quotient Points:

Amrita Arneja, Aza Ismail, Abhay Bhakta, Dhruti Vijay, Farhia Rashid, Het Patel, Jennifer Jaison, Mitul Shah, Mishaliy Radhakrishnan, Nidhi Ladhani, Riya Kulkarni, Saad Khurshid, Shria Morjania, Yagnesh Patel and Yogesh Patel.

The top 5 individuals:

1st Position – Farhia Rashid                                 Average Score: 389

2nd Position – Lauren Mshiu                               Average Score: 382

3rd Position – Saad Khurshid                              Average Score: 373

4rd Position – Payal Shah                                      Average Score: 369

5th Position – Humzah Hameed                          Average Score: 368

 Can these students please report to Mr Joshi office to collect their special prize!

The target for the children should be to gain 390 out of the possible 420 points in order to be certain in securing a place in a grammar school. The good news is that the marks are moving clearly upwards and many children have found the Summer Workshops beneficial. In the follow-up review, the children did realise their marks should have been higher were it not for all the silly mistakes and unanimously requested another Mock Exam in September. Probably due to the fact the experience is found to be highly beneficial in boosting their confidence and in reducing their exam nerves.

In response to this, we have therefore created a Special 11+ Mock Exams for Monday 3rd September 2012 in time to ensure they get some good solid experience prior to the actual 11+ Exams in September. The Mock Exams will be held at The Learning Hub at 5:00pm and parents are encouraged to register their child as soon as possible.

For further details please telephone 020 8908 0123.

IMPORTANT: We request that you kindly do not make copies of the Mock Test papers and pass them to other people as they will be used again in next year’s mock tests. Having these papers in circulation will ruin the opportunity for next year’s students to sit a paper they have never seen before in Exam Condition. Due to this risk, we are always tempted to withhold these papers, but we genuinely feel that things like returning them to parents help make The Learning Hub a centre of Excellence. The returning of the papers also allows parents to go through with their child and discover areas that require the most practice.

11+ Mock Results – July 12 (London)

July 12 – 11+ Mock Exams Results

The July 2012 mock exams went well with the children participating being more relaxed and confident in their approach. The feedback from the children is that the reviews held afterwards have been of great help and overall they are now feeling more and more confident of the actual 11+ exams in September.

I would like to congratulate all the children who took these 11+ exams for their enthusiasm and hard work and, confirming to parents and child, the commitment required for success.

My special congratulations go to the following top 5 individuals:

          1st Position   –        Farhia Rashid       

          2nd Position  –        Humzah Hameed   

          3rd Position  –        Lauren Mshiu         

          4th Position  –        Payal Shah             

          5th Position  –        Ankit Seghal 

(All the scores were standardised)

As mentioned previously, the June paper was tricky, to balance the level of learning experience, the July paper was made tougher by questions being more challenging and aimed at Henrietta Barnet Girls and Queen Elizabeth’s Boys School. It is here that we should be proud of our children for they very coped well, showing that hard work does bring its rewards.

Focus and concentration was high throughout the 3 hours and it was noticed that the children were more positive to the 11+ exams and achieving success.

I personally belief that all the children who will be attending our 4 weeks of 11+ Summer Workshops will benefit tremendously by given access to some of the best 11+ material. The classes will comprise of 3 hours of solid work every day and then about 3 hours of homework. That’s an incredible 6 hours of 11+ work every day!

In the meantime, I urge all the children to work hard and parents please support your children for the competition is very strong this year.

The Next & FINAL 11+ Mock Exam will be on Saturday 11th August. Its review will be on Sat.18th August. For further details please enquire now on 020 8908 0123.

 

IMPORTANT: We request that you kindly do not make copies of the Mock Exam papers and pass them to other people as they will be used again.

Due to this risk, we are always tempted to withhold these papers, but we genuinely feel that things like returning them to parents help make The Learning Hub a Centre of Learning Excellence.
