We’ve just released the first pack in a new series designed to help students improve key inference skills:
What is inference and why is it relevant for the 7+ exam?
An inference is a conclusion that is based on evidence and reasoning.
The comprehension section of most 7+ exams will contain questions that test this skill.
These questions tend to be among the trickiest as they require students to form their own conclusions based on contextual evidence from the text.
Inference questions are often also worth more marks and can therefore make a large difference in a student’s overall English score.
As an aside, if you’re interested in a detailed breakdown of all the different types of comprehension questions that could come up in the 7+ exam, take a look at our Comprehension Guide here.
How will this new pack benefit my child?
Using our knowledge and experience of the 7+ exam, we’ve identified seven key forms of inference that students need to be aware of:
A.Deriving a contextual synyonym
B.Using logic to complete a sentence
C. Using context to infer a situation
D.Using context to choose a connector
E.Interpreting feelings and emotions
F.Choosing a homonym in context
G.Selecting the most appropriate word
We’ve created a series of tests to target these specific inference skills, helping your child to familiarise themselves with the format and build their confidence.
As with all our resources, it’s designed to make your exam preparation targeted and efficient, focusing on the key skills and knowledge that will make the difference.
What’s included in the pack?
– 16 targeted practice tests, each with 20 questions
