Planet BOFA's personalised online learning is out of this world

Proud to be different, Planet BOFA is the only online 11-plus and KS2 teaching system to build a unique experience around each student. We test, tutor, retest and track your child's progress, boosting learning at every stage with a laser-focus on weaker areas.

1 A unique online learning platform

BOFA is a unique online learning platform, where every question comes as a triplet. BOFA supplies an initial test, followed by tailored teaching and learning. We then retest at a later date with a slightly different question. BOFA then creates helpful subject reports which you can use with your child or pass on to a tutor, saving valuable time for all concerned.

2 Questions are personalised according to past answers

The first stage a pupil will encounter whilst they are learning with BOFA is an Initial Test. This is used to determine which topics a pupil is already comfortable with, and where BOFA can help them to improve. Praise is given for correct answers, and the incorrectly answered questions are used to personalise the next part of the process.

3 Plenty of practise and explanation

Moving on to the practice and explanation stage, a similar question is used to explain to the pupil where they went wrong and how to improve next time. The pupil then answers a question to allow them to practice, and further bespoke teaching and explanation is given if this is required.

4 Test, practise and retest

After about a week, so that pupils are not just testing their short-term memory, they move on to the Retest, which uses the third question in the triplet to assess the individual's improvement. Errors made at this stage are placed into a personal report.

5 A personal report is emailed to you

This report is emailed to you, and is also available to view online. It details the areas that your child struggled with, along with the questions they answered incorrectly, complete with the correct answers and explanations.

6 Bofa saves times

Planet BOFA saves time by only teaching topics that pupils need to learn; pupils enjoy the independent learning with regular praise.

7 Attention to detail

This is what makes BOFA so special, the attention to detail that allows us to nurture the potential in every child.

Someday, everyone will learn the BOFA way!

  • See happy, motivated kids who are keen to learn. Confidence and scores sky-rocket as children feel independent managing their work, yet supported by our personalised approach. Customising the colours and text is fun too.
  • Flexible, inclusive teaching that fits around family life. No one gets stuck learning with Planet BOFA. Explanations are easy to digest. The 50 and 25 minute tests can be paused. And each answer will be marked and tracked whether it’s within the time limit or not. A child is guided through weaker areas until they’re ready to move on.
  • High-flyers are offered individual extension work to nurture their academic potential.

And when one learning circuit is complete (after the 'retest'), you'll receive an instant report. Reports show questions the student didn’t get right, with answers and explanations, organised into topics that need more study time.
  • Hassle-free account management. For example, it’s a cinch to transfer an existing subscription to a sibling.

Questions?

  • How much is a subscription to Planet BOFA?
    Just £5.99 per month with no tie-in, or you can make a single payment for a three, six or 12 month subscription.
  • How much extra studying will my child need to do?
    We estimate around 50 hours of study time.
  • Why are there different levels of tests on Planet BOFA?
    There can be a bit of difference between some of the 11-plus tests that are set. Our different levels of testing and learning make sure you're prepared for whatever comes up. BOFA 11 is where everyone starts. BOFA 11+ is a little harder. And BOFA 11++ contains questions that are tougher to answer. As you progress through the levels your grade percentages may not stay as high. This is normal.

    Our KS2 products are set at year group levels:
    • Year 3 - at the old key stage level 3
    • Year 3&4 - at the old level 3&4
    • Year 4&5 - at the old level 4&5
    • Year 5&6 - at the old level 5&6
    • Year 6 - at the old level 6
  • What’s a Quick Test?
    These are designed for children who’ve completed all three levels of BOFA 11-plus tests (across all four subjects), and achieved over 75% in each one. Quick Tests are a fast and fun way for children to enjoy a further stretch over six minutes, and get a chance to make it onto the Planet BOFA Quick Test Leader Board.
  • Can I retrieve historic test data if I’m unsubscribed?
    All pupil data is stored ready for access when you reactivate a new subscription.

Questions about the 11+?

  • In brief, what is the 11-plus?
    A test sat in some counties in Year 6 to decide which state school your child should attend. It covers maths, English, verbal-reasoning and non-verbal reasoning. Private and independent schools also use 11-plus style exams as an entrance qualifier.
  • What’s the big deal about the 11-plus?
    State grammar schools are over-subscribed at around 70,000 children to 20,000 places, so children need to show what they can do in order to have a choice in their education.
  • Why should children prepare for the 11-plus?
    Good question! In theory children shouldn’t need to because the 11-plus isn’t meant to benefit anyone who has practiced. In reality it’s impossible to set an exam for which no one can prepare. In which case, the quality of the preparation makes a big difference.
  • How can I take the stress out of 11-plus prep?
    By giving your child lots of tailored test practice and learning around their unique set of needs, at a pace that suits them. Speed and clarity of feedback from the testing and progress made are key factors in eliminating stress for children and parents alike.
