Our school exam skills recommendations

School Entrance Tests recommend:

  • Starting revision early so that any gaps in your child’s knowledge can be identified and improved.
  • Agreeing a study timetable with your child so that they feel involved in the process of studying.
  • Studying little but often. The average 12-year-old has an attention span of around 30 minutes, so be sure not to overdo it.
  • Use a variety of different studying methods based on the three main learning styles (auditory, visual and kinaesthetic). For example, you could try a combination of flashcards, listening exercises and presentations to provide variety.
