Since the UK Government announced the policy of equal rights with BNO passports, the children of holders of BNO passports have the right to attend the state schools in the UK for free. Compared with independent schools, the largest advantage of state schools is of course that the UK Government fully subsidizes the tuition fees, allowing parents to save about HK$200,000 to HK$400,000 in tuition expenses each year.
The state schools in the UK are mainly divided into two categories: Selective Schools and Comprehensive Schools. Selective schools use student abilities (such as entrance examination scores, sports ability, etc.) as admission criteria; Comprehensive schools mainly admit students based on the catchment area.
Grammar Schools in selective schools generally have a long history and their students have excellent exam results. Therefore, many parents hope to enroll their children in grammar schools. To enter a grammar school successfully, students need to register and pass the UK 11+ entrance exam. The 11+ entrance examination is not a unified national examination. Selective state schools apply different entrance examination papers for student evaluation depending on their located town and the local school council.
The content of the 11+ entrance examination mainly includes the following 4 items:
3. Verbal reasoning
4. Non-verbal reasoning
We will analyze the mode and content of the entrance examination for the selective state school that the students choose to apply for. We also provide the most suitable mock exam paper for targeted training. This course will give students personalized academic guidance and strengthen the ability of the subjects being assessed. Our tutors will take the initiative to provide detailed explanations in each part and comprehensive follow-up on problems encountered in learning, aiming to improve the required examination skills and knowledge in the shortest time, and help students to enter the school of their choice successfully.
