OUR PRACTICE TESTS MIRROR THE ACTUAL TEST
The objective of our products is to provide great materials to prepare your child for the AQE & GL Transfer Tests. We were the first such website and our reputation has grown that we are now recommended by most teachers and tutors in the Transfer Test field. Our paper and online practice tests mirror the actual transfer test and are dedicated to helping your child achieve the necessary grade in AQE / GL transfer tests. Our online Maths tests contain 1200 different questions and our online English tests contain 1260 different questions. All these tests can be completed on a mobile or tablet so they are a great way for kids to get practice tests that are fun.
How 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.
What 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.
