Is your child taking the 11+ in January 2017?
We are here to help.
In the lead up to the 11+ exams in January, Minerva is running a series of 11+ interview practice masterclasses this December and January with ex-headmistress and all-round entrance exam expert Susie.
Masterclasses last 1 hour and include a mock interview with Susie and 15 minutes of feedback for both parent and pupil.
Attending these masterclasses will allow Susie to evaluate you child’s individual strengths and weaknesses, on a one-to-one basis, and provide feedback and tuition to ensure that your child is fully prepared for interview day.
This year, masterclasses are based in Moorgate, Pimlico, or Hampstead. 10th, 17th December 2016, and January 7th, 14th 2017.
To book a masterclass please call +44 (0) 208 819 3276 and ask for Samantha.
In recent years, the 11+ entrance exam has become one of the most competitive exams in the country, with competition for places for 2017 / 2018 entry at an all-time high. A crucial element of a school’s selection criteria is the candidate interview.
To prepare our pupils for the 11+ interview, we are proud to work alongside some of the best educators and consultants in the UK.
In particular, our top interview consultant, Susie – a former headmistress and renowned entrance exam specialist – has helped train hundreds of 11+ candidates to achieve entry to London’s top secondary schools.
In October 2016, Susie hosted a panel with our tutors to discuss what schools are currently looking for in their 11+ applicants:
“They [school examiners] want to see pupils who can take ownership of the interview process, express personality, and show that they are more than what they know. In short, in a few minutes, they want to find out who this little person is and what they’re all about.
In terms of the academic material, schools may well ask a student to do some mental arithmetic, or read a passage of prose or poetry blind. Numeracy and literacy are the key skills schools will look for at this age, although some may also include some verbal and/or non-verbal reasoning questions.
The full write up from that session ‘A Headteachers Guide to the 7 Plus and 11 Plus’ is available to read free on our blog.
To help children of all ages and abilities develop the skills they need to succeed in the exam room and in the world beyond.
