Key Recommendations for the 11+

Further Recommendations

Examberry Tuition

On our sister site, Examberry Tuition, you can also sign up for in-person or online 11+ tuition courses to give your child the best chance of getting into the top school of their choice.

We offer a variety of course formats and teaching styles to make the 11+ tuition process flexible for your child’s learning needs. 

With a passion for education, Examberry consistently succeeds in helping pupils achieve places at their chosen schools. 

Examberry Mocks

You can also book places for mocks through our sister site, Examberry Mocks. For the most realistic replication of actual exam conditions, we recommend you sign your child up to sit as many mock exams as possible before their entrance exam.  Examberry Mocks are great because they operate on a level system, wherein at each of the three levels, the difficulty of the papers gradually increases to work alongside your child’s progress.

Suppose you are unsure of which mocks to sign-up for. In that case, you can fill out a request form for a Free Exam Preparation Plan, which will include recommended mocks for your child’s targeted schools and provide recommended practice tests and other resources for these schools.
