Getting started with Pre-Tests

Log into the pupil account to access the tests. We recommend you go through the demos with your child so you are both familiar with how our Pre-Tests work. Each demo takes between 5 and 10 minutes and takes you through the initial test, practice stage, retest and report. We encourage you to answer some questions incorrectly in order to go through the full process and get the full benefit from the demo.

You are now ready to start your first Pre-Test. Remember the Pre-Tests are designed to be taken as a mock exam and therefore unlike our 11+ tests cannot be paused or retaken. Please ensure you allow enough time to complete a subject test in one sitting and that your device is fully charged with a stable internet connection. You do not need to complete each Pre-Test in one sitting, but each subject test must be completed in one sitting.

The time allocation for each subject test is as follows:

  • Verbal Reasoning has 36 minutes.

  • Non-Verbal Reasoning has 32 minutes.

  • Maths has 50 minutes.

  • English has 25 minutes.

In order to replicate the exam our default is to not display the on-screen clock, we recommend you do not override this default and discuss using a watch or clock in the room along with the on-screen progress bar to judge how far through the test the pupil is. If your child is allowed extra time in the exam you can set the same allowance in BOFA by logging into the parent account and amending the Test Options in the edit pupil page.
