Online ISEB Pretest Courses

We have designed four stand-alone courses to help your child prepare for the ISEB Common Pretest. Each will include an overview of the test as well as specific strategies and advice on how to deal with the various question types within each of the four sections: Mathematics, English, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning.

Each of the courses covers the whole Pretest but they contain different content and material. You can book one or multiple courses for your child, depending on how much preparation would prove beneficial for them.

By the end of the course, your child will have a solid understanding of what to expect in the ISEB Pretest assessment, which will look and feel familiar. They will be equipped with the tools and frameworks to deal with any question they face on test day. There will be no surprises so they will be able to approach the ISEB Pretest with confidence, dealing with any question accurately and efficiently.

Who will teach the classes?

We’ve lined up our most qualified and talented tutors and teachers to lead these sessions. Not only do they have vast experience of ISEB Pretest preparation, but they are also experts in the various nuances required to teach group classes effectively in an online setting.

How do I book and pay?

Choose your courses above and enter your personal details as requested.

You will then be asked to enter your credit or debit card details to make payment.

Once payment has been made, you will receive a confirmation email.

Can I book more than one course?

Yes, as long as the date and time you want has availability, you will be able to book. There are different courses, all separately numbered, for you to book.

If I want to book more than one course, does my child need to attend the courses in order, Course 1, Course 2 etc?

No – your child can attend any course in any order you like. Each course is pitched at the same difficulty level but covers unique material.

How many students will there be on a course?

There will be a maximum of 12 students per course. The group dynamic works particularly well with Pretest teaching.

Is each course stand-alone?

Yes, each course is stand-alone and self-contained. This means that you can sign up for one, two, three or more. All feedback will be given to students during the class.

How does an online course work?

Tutors will use a combination of Zoom, workbooks and a shared digital whiteboard to ensure students gain maximum benefit from each lesson. This will ensure that your child will be able to see the tutor and his or her fellow students, access material that will be used in the session and be able to work on documents in real time.

Each student will be able to ask questions and participate fully in the class.

What materials do I need for my child to take part?

A hard copy course workbook will be posted to you in advance of each course. This will contain all of the material your child will need to take part in the course. You will just need to provide pencils and stationery.

Our course workbooks contain completely original material that cannot be found elsewhere. They provide the most accurate representation of the ISEB Pretest available in the market today.

Can you email me a copy of the course workbook?

Unfortunately, we cannot make electronic copies available due to copyright.

Why do you need my postal address on booking?

What do I need to do to ensure the lesson goes smoothly?

What technology does my child need to participate in a lesson?

All they will need is access to a laptop or tablet and a free Zoom account. The tutor will share a Zoom link in advance of the session via the email address you booked with and provide access to a shared digital whiteboard. This will allow students and the tutor to annotate documents in real time.
