At School Entrance Tests we aim to take the anxiety out of school entrance tests for students and parents. We provide a vast collection of free private and grammar school entrance exams and educational resources.

We understand how stressful entrance exams can be and therefore want to level the playing field for those who can’t afford tutors / private education.

Even though we are still very much ‘the new kid on the block’, we not only provide the biggest selection of all types of entrance tests anywhere online (all for FREE), we also create fun and effective 10-minute tests in the form of quizzes. Through these, we aim to get children to practice exam questions within time restraints. At the same time, they can review the feedback to their answers independently. Not only does this free up parents/tutors, but also give children some responsibility for their own learning. 

10 Study Skills Tips

Find time to study.

  • In our opinion if you manage your time badly, you will be less productive. So manage it well! This can lead to increased stress and anxiety levels. In particular, around exam time.

Keep to a routine.

  • And next, work in the same place at the same time each day. Also, make sure you have everything you need before you start.

Work to your strengths.

  • Also, try to schedule challenging tasks for when you are most alert. And routine ones for when you are more tired.

Don’t waste time.

  • Rather than reading irrelevant material, skim and scan. Then decide if you need to read something in-depth.

Avoid distractions.

  • Plus, switch emails and social media off. This prevents your mind wandering while trying to learn new information!

Regularly review your notes – Edit out what you don’t need. Ask yourself the question, Is this relevant to my assignment? How does it relate to what I already know?

Vary how you to take notes.

  • And you can also use Mind Maps and diagrams to generate ideas. Or to focus your ideas for essay or report plans.

Be critical.

  • Plus, make sure that you always add your own comment to every concept or quotation that you write down. Maintain a critical and analytical approach at all times!

Plan your work.

  • And then if writing an assignment produce a detailed plan before you start to write it. This will make the drafting process much less stressful

Understand different styles.

  • So, this is to help you to understand different writing styles next. For example, academic journal and journalistic styles. You can put what you read into perspective. In particular, you can become more aware of any particular bias.
