How can we help?
The vaks positive approach to preparing for tests and examinations allows pupils to grow in confidence and self-esteem. Pupils must be able to apply their knowledge with understanding and self-belief. This is fundamental to future learning.
Our team is very experienced in preparing students to sit entrance examinations for both state and public/private schools. We are enormously proud of results achieved by children in 4+, 7+, 11+, 13+ entrance exams since 2002.
Vaks continues to achieve a 100% success rate.
Performing well in exam conditions at any age requires professional support and tailored tuition. Our advanced programmes ensure that children are not only taught how to perform academically but are also equipped with the vital skills needed to cope psychologically during this experience.
At Vaks, we care tremendously about how this learning is facilitated. Together with parents, we endeavour to ensure that each pupil finds learning a positive experience. This will advance their Mathematical, English and Reasoning skills. These are the tools for learning that will be called upon long after the exam day.
Our SATS programme focuses on the key exam preparation skills:
- Understanding and interpretation of exam questions
- Memorisation techniques
- Mind mapping
- Comprehension and textual analysis
- Mock exam practice
- Study skills and organisation
- Interview technique
- Time management
