Intensive 11 Plus Tuition

Ark Intensive 11 Plus Tuition is an extension of the Ark Year 5 Tuition. Intensive Programme starts from April and runs up to the entrance exams in September for Year 5 children aged 9 and 10 years who will be sitting for the 11 Plus exams. The Intensive programme mainly focuses on practicing past papers and improving confidence and exam techniques. Children will attend for 4 hours a week over two days. We make every effort to allocate slots at the convenience of children and parents.

Ark Intensive 11 Plus Tuition is also suitable for children who would need an extra last minute preparation for the entrance exams and the nature of the programme is to mainly focus on revision, building confidence and improving exam techniques.

11 plus Intensive Tuition

Mathematics Tuition

This course is intended for children who have not completely understood the basic elements of mathematics. It focuses on number, decimals, fractions, percentages and ratios. This is essential learning for the CEM 11+ examinations in Redbridge, Essex and for GL Assessment style 11+ Maths for Kent 11 Plus tests.

There will be a multiple-choice mock examination and follow-up session on the last day of the Essential Maths course.

Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning Tuition

The course covers all the essential elements required for both verbal ability and non-verbal reasoning required by CEM in 11+ examinations and verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning required by GL Assessment in some other grammar examinations.

This course should be planned if children are not fully competent in what is required for the CEM test.

The following areas will be covered:

Verbal studies

Verbal ability comprises: comprehension; cloze activity; synonyms, antonyms and homonyms; and syntax.

Verbal reasoning comprises: basic logical/processing techniques and additional work on the English components of GL Assessment style VR tests that also have relevance to CEM 11+ tests.

Non-Verbal Reasoning

This will cover all the techniques required by GL Assessment and CEM style non-verbal tests. 3D rotation is specifically required by CEM and this will be covered in detail.

There will be a multiple choice mock examination and follow-up session on the last day of the Verbal Activity and Non-verbal Reasoning course.

English Tuition

This is an advanced course and should be considered if children are facing a specific English examination in the 11+. It can also be a useful means of boosting a child's English skills to a much higher level and making a pass score more likely in the CEM tests. Also, this programme further enhances student’s performance.

The course comprises the following:

• Creative writing tasks: Children will write many stories and redraft each one during the course. Children's English improves when they learn to use the language creatively.

• Extensive test practice and instruction in comprehension skills. This will involve close study of prose and poetry.

• Components designed to improve the children's grammar, syntax, spelling and vocabulary.

• Test practice materials designed to reinforce learning.

The mock examination will include a grammar, syntax, spelling, vocabulary and comprehension (multiple choice) test and a creative writing (written) test and a follow-up session on the last day of the course.
