Exams and Success Criteria

Bright Star will guide you…

The new ‘Success Criteria’ necessary to achieve best examination results has been created and put together by Bright Star. Katie guides parents and their children through these required steps giving them the tools and strategies to cope with examination. Our students understand the requirements for a well-planned piece of work and skilfully include these criteria in their papers to increase chances of success. The results to date have been amazing! We also focus on exam question answering, memory techniques, comprehension and textual analysis, exam taking preparation, study skills and organisation, decoding, interview skills, technique, composure and confidence. Entrance exams we cover include:

  • Interactive play and communication skills for 4 plus assessments
  • 7 plus entrance for preparatory schools
  • 8 plus entrance for preparatory schools
  • 9 plus entrance for preparatory schools
  • 10 plus entrance for preparatory schools
  • 11 plus Common Entrance and school specific entrance (11+ pre-tests)
  • 11 plus entrance for North London Girls Schools Consortium
  • Pre-assessment for 13+ Common Entrance taken in years 6 and 7
  • 13 plus Common Entrance and school specific entrance
  • Interview technique and skills

“It was clear to me early on that Katie totally worked him out – as a result they now teach him in a way that he responds best to. Bright Star Tutoring has helped enormously with his confidence in creative writing and comprehension by providing him with his own set of ‘tools’ when working alone. The dreaded 11+ is now not so daunting as they have established a happy working relationship. We have seen a more self-confident approach to his school work as he sees weekly improvements himself. We are delighted and would highly recommend Bright Star Tutoring.”
