School Entrance Tests

At School Entrance Tests we aim to provide useful best school guides and to take the anxiety out of school entrance tests for students and parents:

  • Providing a vast collection of free private and grammar school entrance exams and educational resources.
  • Creating fun and effective 10-minute tests in the form of quizzes.
  • Providing children with practice exam questions within time restraints. At the same time, they can review the feedback to their answers. This gives children more personal responsibility for their own learning. 

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.
