Why should your child take our mock exams?

Build confidence through our real-life exam simulations
Utilising our expertise, we have crafted demanding and captivating examination papers that mirror your child's assessments at the senior schools they are targeting. Furthermore, we closely simulate examination environments to ensure your child becomes adept and well-acquainted with every facet of the process.

Hone exam technique and maximise scores

Your child may not have taken this kind of test before, so it’s likely to be a new experience for them. By sitting a timed exam with other students, they’ll gain valuable practice. This will help them improve their time management skills and feel more relaxed and confident on the actual exam day.

Personalised Feedback Report

You will receive a comprehensive report that includes your child's performance analysis, including passing scores, comparisons with peers, and essential insights into their strengths and areas for improvement. Additionally, you will receive specific guidance on how to enhance their performance.

Access to the examiners for feedback sessions and study plans
Our Entrance Exam Specialists are also available for in-depth individual post-mock exam feedback or tuition sessions where they will go over the student’s individual exams question by question and provide tuition for future exams. Please note that this is not included and is charged at an additional pro-rata fee.
