Over the course of the next week, we will be releasing your child’s Smart 11+ Tuition Review. This is an important moment for us as centre managers, for our tutors, for your child, and for you as parents to reflect on this term’s progress.
So, you are all probably at home wondering what all this means. What is the difference between the Smart 11+ Review and the End of Term Review? Will this tell me if my child will pass the 11+ entrance exam? Does it reveal any mock results?
These are all the questions you have been asking us at our tuition centres – and they are excellent valid questions. So we want to help and outline what the Smart 11+ Tuition Review actually is and what it does.
Firstly, do not panic. We are not releasing grades or claiming to provide any miraculous details about how your child will do in the 11+ exam. This report is ultimately a review of their progress. Some of you have been with us now for 16 weeks, and we feel that this has given us enough time to get to know your child and be able to provide some valid valuable feedback on their process.
What is the Smart 11+ Tuition Review?
This week’s session (Saturday 15th January through to Thursday 20th January) is week sixteen.
As per every year here at Smart 11+ Tuition, your child will take part in an end of term review. This session is a recap of all the topics already covered in the last term. Please note it is not a mock exam, as previous years feedback (and in light of the impact of Covid on children’s education) has taught us that conducting a mock at this stage in the 11+ journey can actually take away time from their learning and put undue pressure on them. Instead, during this session your child will answer questions on a range of topics that helps us to understand their progress and how they well they are securing knowledge and recalling information.
Our tutors will be looking at how your child performed, marking the OMR sheets and providing feedback to parents through the Smart 11+ Tuition Review.
This report will be directly from your child’s tutors. The report will summarise their key areas of strength, areas for improvement and how they are getting on during tuition sessions.
When will we receive the Smart 11+ Tuition Review?
You will receive this report on Monday 7th February. Your child’s answer paper will be available to view in their book once returned in their subsequent tuition session.
