Preparing for the 11 plus exam takes a lot longer than many parents think. We have had a number of you contact us just weeks before your child is to take the exam asking for advice on which books should be purchased. 

Which can sometimes be too late. 

And no matter how well your child performs in school, the 11 plus exams require a completely different way of thinking. The exams require you to think in a different way to what you're used to and they test how fast you are and how quickly your mind grips certain concepts.

Starting as early as possible is the best way to train your mind on the 11 plus.

We do understand that sometimes its difficult to get a child to concentrate at such a young age, but even if they start with just one or two hours a week and build it up from there it will always be beneficial. 

Now before we get an influx of comments saying that it's not always the case that a child who has only begun preparations a few months before the exam will not pass and continue on to the next level, but we do implore that the 11 plus entrance exams are extremely competitive- and the longer you wait to get your child working and preparing on the exams the bigger the gap between your child and some one who has been studying and preparing for years.
