Hi everybody, we're very new to this (only moved over from New York last year) so please bear with me. Ds will be taking ISEB tests for Westminster, St Paul's, City, Wetherby and Harrow in November. He's a smart boy but obviously there has been quite a lot to catch up on and the school hasn't explained the whole process too well.

For verbal and non-verbal reasoning in particular I would like him to get some practice. He's definitely a visual learner so some video tutorials or at least being able to see how a shape comes together would be helpful. We've also got gaps to fill in English and maths :(

On another note, does anyone know if you can do any mock tests?

The pretest provider is GL Assessment, so any GL style mock will be good practice.

The Bucks mock by the owners of this forum is GL style and covers all 4 subjects - but, as with most mock test providers, it is paper rather than computer based.

If your son's school does CAT tests at the start of year 6, they will be very similar in style to the pretest, but won't give the detailed feedback you get from a mock test.

We are finding Galore Park's online resource very helpful - go to their homepage and you'll find it. Galore Park are recommended by ISEB so relevant for the Common pre test.

That site has mock tests but there is also a learning side with video tutorials in verbal and non-verbal reasoning (and English and maths).

Hope it helps!

No, they sit the ISEB test only once and the results are shared between all participating schools.

There are currently 2 online providers that claim to have mock tests for ISEB. If you google - you should be able to get the names. I can name them, but the moderators seem to edit the names of the online providers out :(
