How BOFA can work for you

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

A UNIQUE ONLINE LEARNING PLATFORM

BOFA is one-of-a-kind. Every question comes as a triplet: an initial test to asses current knowledge, then tailored teaching and practice followed by a retest at a later date. We know your time is precious, that's why we create helpful subject reports to be used with your child or passed on to a tutor.

PERSONALISED QUESTIONS ACCORDING TO PAST ANSWERS

Our intial test determines which topics a pupil is already comfortable with, and those which BOFA can help them to improve. We give plenty of praise for correct answers and incorrect responses help form our personalised practice and retest stage.

PLENTY OF PRACTICE AND EXPLANATION

We're not only about testing, we're passionate teachers too. We use similar questions to those answered incorrectly in the initial test stage to explain where your child went wrong. We then offer practice questions and further bespoke teaching if required - whatever they need to improve

THE RETEST

After about a week, to ensure knowledge is embedded in the pupil's long-term memory, our Retest assesses improvement. Any errors made at this stage are put into a personalised report.

A PERSONALISED REPORT IS EMAILED TO YOU

A report tracking pupil progress is emailed to you and available to view online. We'll let you know which topics were less successful along with any questions answered incorrectly. We also include correct answers and explanations for you to refer to if needed.

POSITIVE PRAISE THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS

Children need encouragement, especially if they are struggling with their learning. We have an automated awards and medal system that rewards not only correct answers but timekeeping, commitment and improvement.

The unique benefits of using Planet BOFA

  • Access to an unbeatable personalised learning tool that will propel your child to 11-plus and KS2 success (created by million-plus selling Bond Assessment author Andrew Baines).
  • Planet BOFA is as unique as every child. No test question will ever be repeated during a pupil’s education with us.
  • You'll be in good company. 4 million Planet BOFA tests have been done and counting...
  • Faster results. Marking and feedback is instant. We quickly identify where children need the most help, and then zoom-in on their potential. Planet BOFA doesn't waste time teaching topics they already know.
  • See happy, motivated pupils 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 helps too.
  • Flexible, inclusive teaching that fits around family life. No one gets stuck learning with Planet BOFA. Explanations are easy to digest. The tests can be paused to help manage pupil study time. 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 moved on by the Adaptive Learning algorithm to nurture their academic potential.
  • Feedback is at your fingertips. Emails with key information arrive at the end of each test stage, so you're always up to speed on progress. When one learning cycle is complete (after the 'retest'), you'll receive a summary email report with links to the full reports. These show the questions the pupil didn’t get right, with answers and explanations; organised into topics to help teachers and tutor focus future learning.
  • Hassle-free account management. We are constantly adding in new functionality to help all users access information as easily as possible. We always welcome suggestions to help us improve BOFA.

Questions?

Questions about the 11+?

  • 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.
  • State grammar schools are over-subscribed at around 70,000 children applying for 20,000 places, so competition is high and schools try to make the exams fair for all but, being prepared for any situation is always an advantage.
  • Good question! In theory children shouldn’t need to prepare 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.
  • Simply let your children do the BOFA Adaptive tests.
