How can I make sure my child does well in the 11+?

There is not one definitive way to ensure that your child performs well in their 11+ exam. However, some factors can have an effect on whether they are likely to do well or not.

Creating a stress-free environment around the child in the lead up to their exam is important. Any issues within the home should be kept well away from them, to keep them oblivious.

Encouraging the child in their learning is important to keep them motivated. You could do this by helping them with learning new topics and using this as quality time between yourselves.

Further to this, making sure they are working on topics that they struggle with rather than repeating ones they already know will not only make them use their time more efficiently, it will also keep them more engaged. BOFA ensures that pupils only spend their time practicing questions where they really need to.
