When should you start preparing your child for the 11+?

Preparing for the 11+ exam can be a daunting task for both parents and children. The 11+ exam is a selective entrance exam taken by students in the UK. Many parents start to think about 11+ preparation as early as year 3 or 4, but the question is, when is the right time to start preparing your child for the 11+?

The answer to this question is that it depends on your child. Some children are ready for 11+ preparation earlier than others. Generally, children start preparing for the 11+ between year 4 and year 5. This gives them enough time to develop their skills and knowledge before the exam.

It’s important to remember that 11+ preparation is not just about learning new concepts. It’s also about developing exam techniques and time management skills. Therefore, starting early can be beneficial for your child. It gives them more time to practice and perfect these skills.

It’s also important to consider your child’s ability and their willingness to learn. If your child is struggling with their current academic workload, it may be best to hold off on 11+ preparation until they have built up their confidence and abilities.

In conclusion, the right time to start preparing your child for the 11+ exam is a personal decision that depends on your child’s readiness and ability. However, starting early can give your child an advantage and help them to develop the necessary skills needed to succeed.
