Preparing for the 7+ and 8+ exams is crucial for children aged 7 and 8. These exams serve as competitive selection processes for Year 3 and Year 4 entry into top schools across the UK. The primary focus of these exams is to assess a child’s proficiency in math and English. This includes testing their mental arithmetic skills, spelling abilities, memory retention, and dictation prowess.

However, it’s worth noting that certain schools go a step further by incorporating a “reasoning paper” into the exams. This particular section evaluates a child’s capacity to, verbally and in written form, explain their understanding of various subjects. Additionally, it is not uncommon for some schools to conduct interviews with candidates as part of the assessment process.
