11+ Maths Tuition for the GL+ Exams
The 11+ exam is about testing your child’s aptitude. We at RTG have the experience to prepare your child for their 11 plus exams. The key to success at 11 Plus is a strong foundation in core Maths and English skills. Our Maths curriculum is completely adaptable allowing us to create a programme that meets your child’s individual needs. It’s all about identifying your child’s current level of mastery and stretching and challenging from that point.
Maths is one of the core subjects tested within the GL 11+ test. Most GL11+ exams are either Standard Format (where answers are written in spaces next to the question) or Multiple Choice (where answers are marked in a separate answer book). The length of test papers varies, although 45 minutes is the most common exam time.
RTG offer both group based tuition and private 11 + tuition for Maths and the other subjects in and around Essex. Our 11 plus Maths private tutors are experienced in ensuring that pupils are fully prepared:
- We assess your child’s Maths ability to pinpoint the areas that need attention for the Maths part of the 11 plus exam.
- One of our tutors will then develop a course of tuition to ensure the student progresses to the right standard by the time of the exams. This course of tuition will involve a mixture of syllabus teaching and exam practice.
- As part of preparing your child for a GL Assessment-examined test we use plenty of past and practice papers to familiarise your child with the question types in each subject. (Plenty of exam prep using practice papers is also important for CEM, but the questions types that appear in the real exam are much more unpredictable.)
- We also help children develop good exam technique – encouraging your child to pick off the questions they can answer easily or those that carry the highest marks.
Preparation for the 11+ usually begins at the start of Year 5, which ensures that the pupil has at least a year to familiarise himself or herself with the tests. It is essential the students prepare for their tests, and feel comfortable under working under timed conditions.
