We strongly recommend parents that the children who are appearing for Parmiter’s School 11 Plus exam must be exposed to different 11 Plus Past Papers, which contains more logical, problem-solving type of questions and the language of the mathematical problems must be unique.

We never practiced the resources which are commonly present in the market in our tutoring classes. Our Tutors always challenged our students on more on logical problem-solving questions, lots of word problems and every question in our tutoring session was different. 

Our tutors used to set up a structured homework on the 11 plus practice books and 11 plus past papers as homework for the student. 

Every question the student needs to solve in less than 40 sec and the time management was on the priority.

The parents can browse at the end of each 11 plus exam paper, the difficulty level of scholarship problems is very high. Practicing these scholarship questions we have noticed that it gives a boost to a child’s independent thinking and logical approach to tackle any question.
