The build-up to the St Clement Danes 11+ test can be an anxious time, but with some forward-planning and regular study sessions, preparation needn’t disrupt the usual routine.
Students should give themselves plenty of time for revision sessions. They should avoid trying to cram in a few sessions the week before the test. Pupils should adopt a steady approach to exam revision over a longer period of time to give them the best chance of performing well.
Parents should encourage their child to include 11 Plus practice papers in their study routine. Set these papers under timed conditions to give them practice of answering questions quickly and under pressure. This is a really efficient way to help studnets improve whilst identifying any weak areas that could do with a little more focus.
