Revision and Practice

Revision and Practice Courses

Essential for keeping up the momentum over the holidays, Flying Start’s Revision and Practice courses are designed to consolidate techniques, improve timing and fine-tune exam strategies. These courses help students maintain and hone their skills over the summer, ensuring they are working at their peak in time for the tests in early September. 

Experience has shown that pupils who attend our Revision and Practice courses perform better in the real exams than those who don’t.

Course Format

Covering the four areas of English, Verbal Reasoning, Mathematics and Non-Verbal Reasoning, pupils will do plenty of practice exercises, brush up on their weaker areas and gain in speed and efficiency when answering questions in timed conditions.  Confidence-building and stress-busting techniques will also be taught and practised, through a series of fun, interactive activities - ensuring your child has a useful toolkit of strategies to help them do the best they can on the big day.

Which to Book?

You may opt to book just one or both Revision and Practice courses. Two courses will give your child the opportunity to practise a greater range of question types. This is particularly important since the recent changes to the Bucks 11+ tests have meant that there are far more potential question types to prepare for and it is not possible to cover everything in one course. Attending both courses will further extend your child’s skills and improve their techniques in a greater variety of question types and topics, thus leading to increased confidence and speed. Two courses are also recommended for students who have started their 11+ practice later in the year; those who struggle with timing or those who find it difficult to study at home.

Both Revision and Practice A and B courses are of a similar level so they can be attended in any order.  For further details of the topics covered in each course, please see the course contents information sheet

For children with little or no prior tuition, or who need to get their skills up to speed in a short space of time, we recommend our Accelerator courses.
