My child has taken a mock test at Sutton Grammar School for Boys. Is another mock test necessary?
The mock test organised by the Parent Teachers Association at Sutton Grammar School for Boys is an excellent way to get your child familiar with the experience of taking an 11+ exam. Our approach however, goes a step further. We address two areas of importance to parents that the Sutton Grammar Mock tests do not.
Firstly, the Mock Test results for boys who sit the exam at Sutton Grammar are presented with that of girls. Our mock tests results will be for boys or girls only. It will enable you rank your child's performance against other children who will be taking the same exams. A good way to see if your child is of selective ability, but please do not take the mock results as conclusive evidence that this is the case. Like any other mock test, it is only a guide.
Secondly, the test being held at all locations gives you the option to request feedback on the questions your child gets wrong. We would like parents to know their child's strengths and weaknesses in this exam paper. This could be invaluable in helping them target areas where their child is underperforming in relation to their all male or female cohort. We have attempted to make our mock test questions cover a wide range of 11+ topics, there is no however no guarantee, that all these areas will be examined on the day.
Many parents opt to expose their children to as many mock tests as possible, to build confidence and to improve exam technique. They in turn are much more relaxed and perform better.
