About Our Entrance Exams Tutoring

At Online Tutors UK, we provide comprehensive and tailored support for entrance exams, including the 11+ and 13+ exams, crucial for secondary school admissions.

The British entrance exams for secondary school at 11+ and 13+ are standardized tests used by UK independent and grammar schools to assess students’ suitability for admission. The 11+ exams, typically taken in Year 6, focus on subjects like English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning, and Non-Verbal Reasoning. The 13+ exams, taken in Year 8, are usually more comprehensive, often including a wider range of subjects like Science and Humanities, in addition to those covered in the 11+. These exams test students’ academic abilities and are crucial for admission into many prestigious secondary schools.

Learning in these subjects involves:

  • English: Focuses on reading, writing, comprehension, and grammar. Students analyze texts, learn to write in various styles, and develop their vocabulary and understanding of grammar.
  • Maths: Covers topics like arithmetic, geometry, algebra, and problem-solving. Students learn to apply mathematical concepts and techniques to solve a range of problems.
  • Verbal Reasoning: Involves understanding and reasoning using words and language. It includes exercises like solving word problems, analogies, and completing sentences or texts.
  • Non-Verbal Reasoning: Tests the ability to understand and analyze visual information and solve problems using visual reasoning. It includes questions on patterns, sequences, and shapes.
  • Science: Covers fundamental concepts in biology, chemistry, and physics. Students learn about the natural world, scientific principles, and conduct experiments.
  • Humanities: Encompasses subjects like history, geography, and social studies. It involves studying human societies, cultures, and historical events, as well as physical and human geography.

Our tutors, with a proven track record, create personalised learning plans focusing on key skills and confidence building, ensuring your child is well-prepared for these exams. We offer guidance in critical areas like essay writing, and our tutors excel in explaining complex concepts in an understandable manner. This support provides a strong foundation for students as they transition into secondary education, equipping them with the necessary skills and confidence for success.
