FAQ’s

1. Are these revision and mock sessions suitable for the 11+ examination my child will be taking?

Our revision courses and mock exams are geared towards 11+ examination papers that are produced by the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring at Durham University. Commonly referred to as CEM. Local grammar school from Walsall/Wolverhampton/Birmingham and Warwickshire as well as grammar schools in Gloucestershire use entrance examination papers produced by CEM.

2. How many children are there in the revision classes and mock analysis sessions?

We have children from across the Midlands attending these courses. Every year is different, however, on average we have approximately a ratio of 12 students to one of our 11+ specialists for revision classes and analysis.

3. What will my child be taught?

Depending on the days you pick or if you choose to book the whole programme, your children are taught English, Maths, verbal reasoning and non verbal reasoning in line with the structure followed for the CEM Durham University eleven plus entrance examinations.

4. How will you teach my child?

Children learn in various ways whether it be visual, auditory, reading / writing or kinesthetic. All our tutors are very experienced with teaching children using various methods to ensure they understand what is being taught. Eleven plus tutors give lots of examples whether it be using the whiteboard, discussing verbally or demonstrating practically.

5. How do I know if my child is suitable for the revision classes and mock exams?

If your child is sitting an eleven plus exam in September then these revision courses help prepare them for these exams. However not all children are suitable for the eleven plus entrance examinations. A general rule is that your child should already be achieving above average at his/her school. In addition to this we are happy for you to come in for a free consultation and assessment to gauge suitability. Please contact us to arrange.

6. Will I be informed regularly of my child's progress and achievement?

Yes, you will have an opportunity to speak to the tutors at the end of the day to get some verbal feedback on how your child has performed during the revision sessions and mock analysis sessions. All mock exam results are shared with parents via a report at the end of the course.

7. Will my child receive work to take home?

Children are given revision booklets after attending the intensive revision sessions to further help them revise and prepare for the actual 11+ examinations. Mock examination papers cannot be taken away, however tutors will highlight areas a child needs to work on after papers have been marked and analysed.

8. What qualifications and experience do the tutors have?

All our eleven plus tutors are fully qualified teachers with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).  In addition to this our eleven plus tutors have specialist knowledge, experience and skills around delivering content relevant to the eleven plus entrance examinations.

Rated ‘Excellent’ by our parents

Diya got a high score in the 11+ entrance exams after attending Cohort Tuition, and we are confident that she will get a place in our preferred Grammar School. The Cohort Tuition holiday Revision & Mock classes were very useful and Diya was able to consolidate her knowledge. The staff are friendly and approachable. There are regular tests and updates. We are continuing to send Diya to Cohort Tuition for year 6 and she will also be attending from year 7 onwards. The class sizes are small and there is a review after every class which is recorded in a booklet that children take home to show parents.

My son Connor attended Cohort Tuition in preparation for his 11+ exams. He loved his time there, his tutors made learning fun and really brought Connor along. Connor was fully prepared for his exams and he's achieved some great scores, we can't thank Cohort enough. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for tuition. Prices are also very reasonable.

I want to say a massive thank you to all the tutors at Cohort Tuition. My son Oluwadamilola joined the 11+ programme around September 2016. At that time he was already in year 5, so he only had a year to prepare. I am so happy because he got a place at Queen Mary Grammar school for boys.
