Mock Exams

Sitting a mock exam reduces exam-day nerves and helps your child to understand what will be expected of them on the day of their exams. Your child will be reassured as we talk them through each stage of the exam day and allow them to ask questions.

Yellowbird Education hold mock exam practice sessions in English and Maths for 7 plus, 8 plus and 11 plus exams. Papers are set on the basis of current Independent School exam trends. They are marked and feedback is provided in areas that may need attention and revision advice is offered.

Mock exams are held in October, November, December and early January. They provide snapshots throughout the year of your child’s progress in the lead up to their actual exams.

How the session works

Our mock exams are run the same way as normal exams from registration to dismissal. The children will sit the exams with a short break in between. The first few mock exams are aimed to give each child confidence, they are set at the correct level for the time of the year, this means that papers are achievable and will not knock your child’s confidence. 

They will interact with new children and adults, as well as cope with unfamiliar places, sounds and distractions. We talk through the process with them to give them confidence to do well on the day.
