When should you start preparing for these exams?

As a general rule of thumb, students will start preparing for these exams approximately 12 to 18 months before exam dates. This seems like a long time, however, it is best to have tuition less intensively over a longer period of time. This will allow the student to work on gaps in their knowledge before graduating to exam focused work, honing their exam technique.

For an accurate lead time, we recommend taking one of our assessments to isolate strengths and weaknesses and benchmark your child against other students targeting the same schools.
