checkbox with green correct tickHow and when to use our tests

It’s best to use them as real exam practice. These tests are mock exams. They are set out in a style as close as possible to the real thing – though the format will vary from year to year. It is best to use them as an authentic exam experience rather than for general practice. Follow the instructions in the sections before starting the test.

checkbox with green correct tickWhat a score means and how to boost it.

It is unfortunately impossible to say that a certain score can guarantee a pass in the actual exams. However, we suggest that a score of 80-85% for each test would be a good standard to aim at. It is important not to present this to your child as a concrete benchmark though, as the best motivator for them is to see the scores going up.

Here are some tried and tested tips for improvement.

 

Go over any incorrect answers.

  • Always go over incorrect answers so that your child can see what went wrong. To help with this process, some of our harder Maths questions are explained.

Use an action planner.

  • This will provide a plan for what to do next when a test has been marked.

Improve basic exam technique.

  • Work on improving speed, working efficiently – coming back to trickier questions later – and pacing within the time limit.

Improve general English skills.

  • Ensure the foundations are strong enough. Use a range of checklists to help reinforce your child’s English skills.

Target what is not fully understood.

  • The secret is not to keep blindly practising but to target the areas of English/Maths that your child is weakest in. This is where crucial marks can be picked up.

CHANGES FOR 21/22 TEST

2021-22

  • The number of sections in the paper will be reduced from 6 to 4.
  • There will be 2 reading sections, instead of 3, both followed by comprehension questions.
  • One reading passage will be fiction or non-fiction and the other reading passage will be poetry.
  • Although the reading passages can be fiction, non-fiction or poetry there will no 19th century fiction.
  • The overall length of the reading material will be reduced by around 30% -40% compared to previous Entrance Assessment papers; i.e. reducing the number of reading passages does not mean increasing the length of the passages.
  • Instead of some questions having 4 answer options and some having 5, every question will have 5 answer options.
  • Both reading passages will be followed by 16 comprehension questions.
  • There will be 9 punctuation and 9 spelling questions.
  • There will be no general section-requiring knowledge and understanding of literary or linguistic terms, e.g. glossary or index.

  • The paper will last 50 minutes instead of 60 minutes.

What Our Customers Are Saying

A must have investment

A must have investment for any parent/tutor preparing a child or children for the GL and/or AQE Transfer Exam. I have tutored children for these exams for the past 15 years and I would highly recommend these papers. My daughter is due to sit both exams in November 2018 and I did not hesitate in purchasing the 85 pound bundle of 40 GL papers. The papers mirror the actual tests and the questions are presented in different ways to challenge the child and  encourage them to think outside of the box. I plan on buying the AQE bundle soon.

An excellent product

I have been using this product as a parent and teacher. It gives children good preparation for the Transfer Test. The practice booklets are particularly useful. They are very well organised and are a good foundation to begin preparation for the Transfer Test. The practice papers use similar questions giving children the opportunity to practice what they have revised. An excellent product which I would readily recommend to any teacher or parent preparing children for the Transfer Test.

Great Success

I have been preparing P.7 pupils for Transfer Tests for fifteen years in primary school and I have accumulated a wealth of resources. I have used your company’s English, Maths and English & Maths combined tests with great success in recent years. The tests are curricular-based and are reflective of the GL Tests that the P.7 pupils have to undertake. The tests are very relevant and really help to prepare the pupils in comprehension, spelling, punctuation, number and problem-solving. I would recommend the tests to other schools. I must also commend your company for the quality of customer service.

Heather Michael

Couldn’t recommend these products highly enough.

As a teacher/tutor of 20 years experience, I have found these resources, in the past 6/7 years, to be of excellent quality.I’d recommend for teachers, tutors, parents and interested people. The questions & papers, I believe, are useful for transfer preparation but also as a resource to assist any parent or guardian, who may want to gain a better understanding of concepts & processes of the English & Maths curriculum in KS2. Couldn’t recommend these products highly enough.
