This is available for pupils in Years 2-6, and can be used to give an indication of possible, early, 11+ entrance exam potential or, more widely, as a general and comprehensive assessment method for either or both of these critical school subjects at Key Stage 2. This comprehensive assessment is done at home, with full instructions provided, and then I mark and assess and provide very detailed, written and face-to-face feedback.

I have prepared students from Japan, Europe, Russia, and the Middle East for Cambridge exams and professional qualifications.
