The reasoning mocks are combined papers incorporating elements of English and Maths. This is a reflection of the recent trend in moving towards combined discipline assessments particularly true of leading exam boards.
The Yellowbird reasoning mocks are divided into separate verbal and non-verbal reasoning tests that are divided into individually timed sections. These are useful for children sitting London Consortium Exams, St Paul’s Girls, Wimbledon High and are good practice for ISEB testing.

How it works
Our Reasoning mocks aim to expose children to a variety of things that they will be exposed to in a reasoning exam, enabling them to familarise themselves with the process of sitting exams in unfamiliar surroundings and interacting with new adults and children.
Key elements of our mock exams are aimed at introducing children to the combined discipline assessments appearing in one paper and efficiently completing the tasks in tightly restricted time conditions.
We advise how best to approach the multiple-choice structure of answering questions and how to complete computer marked answer sheets accurately.
These often-unfamiliar methods are carefully explained to enable children to understand what is required of them in a reasoning exam, thus allowing them to concentrate and focus on the content of the actual exam questions.
Examples of topics included in Yellowbird Reasoning Mock Exam:
Alphabetical and numerical pattern recognition
Vocabulary out of context (eg synonyms and antonyms)
Vocabulary in context (e.g. Cloze; multiple choice comprehension)
Word Structure (e.g. missing letters; using a rule to make a word)
Alphabetical code breaking
Worded logic questions (e.g. identifying a true statement based on information)
Maths and numerical reasoning
2D pattern recognition (e.g. complete the sequence of shapes, identifying the odd one out)
Spatial code breaking
3D pattern recognition (e.g. identifying the net of a cube)
