“Confidence restored”

Written on: 05/03/2015

My child was keen to take her school entrance exam in Year 5, however when the time came she had a panic attack on the day and didn't manage to gain a place. Her confidence was very low at this point. Following the KSOL scheme gave back her faith in her ability while providing useful feedback on areas of weakness. She proceeded to take 4 entrance exams and was offered places at them all. Without working with KSOL I don't think she would have had so many options open to her. The cost was was… Read Full Review

“KSOL review”

Written on: 05/03/2015 by daithuan (1 review written)

My daughter found the format and teaching methods employed by KSOL very enjoyable and interesting. She also found the instructors very attentive and helpful. She also said she enjoyed meeting new kids, making new friends and enjoyed the interaction with both the kids and the very nice instructors in her own words. She found that the daily on-line tests kept her on her toes and also enjoyed that. As a parent, I also found the methods and format of having 5 kids per instructor to be very good… Read Full Review

“They just want money ”

Written on: 04/03/2015

I decided to try KSOL with my son this year , my daughter already secured a place at our first choice grammer last year with the help of EPS tuitions in Handsworth .... I wasn't happy after 2 months as the online exams are irrelevant to the actual 11plus exam , I gave them a verbal leave notice and left , was surprised to find out that they charged my credit card without my permission for another full month fee £135 , I called them , they refused to refund the money , they said according to… Read Full Review

“Eleven Plus”

Written on: 04/03/2015 by lydfordm (1 review written)

My son and daughter attended K.S.O.L which was fantastic in every way. My son is in year 8 at K.E.S and my daughter has just been also offered a grammar school place.They were supplied with good teachers who inspired and motivated them to succeed in the eleven plus. They enjoyed their weekly sessions and even looked forward to them. They made friends along the way and the group sessions worked well. They grew in confidence and achieved higher levels at primary school. We missed our sessions… Read Full Review

“Recipe for 11+ Success & Fantastic Support”

Written on: 04/03/2015 by CliveMa (1 review written)

I was astonished to learn from my daughter's school that a proportion of the 11+ exam is not taught within the defined education syllabus until Year 6 (after the children have taken the 11+ exam). I therefore reviewed lots of tutoring services but decided on KSOL, and am so glad I did. The structure is perfect and the quality of teaching and support is simply outstanding. BOTH my daughter and son have since passed through the process and both have secured places within at King Edwards VI Five… Read Full Review

“Puts you as parent in control”

Written on: 03/03/2015 by IanBuzz (1 review written)

Our son took to KSOL after a couple of weeks encouragement and 'hand-holding' to gain confidence - I'm sure some kids are scared off in the early weeks - it's worth persevering - after that it became part of his routine. We found small treats helped to reinforce the Gold, Silver and Bronze awards each week - a Lego figure for a Gold - nothing OTT. We liked the fact that the dashboard allowed us to see overall progress and that all previous incorrect answers were available to review. I could… Read Full Review

“A Brilliant Institute”

Written on: 03/03/2015 by Iyadismail (1 review written)

KSOL provided enough motivation and helped build our son's confidence to sit the 11+ exams. They provided the right guidance with their well appointed curriculum that covered all bases. Our son enjoyed his time at KSOL and looked forward to his next session every time. He happily did his online work in addition to his written homework. The tutors were always very pleasant and approachable. They always encouraged all the children to try their hardest. There were many incentives provided, the… Read Full Review

“Well organised, mock exams were incredibly useful”

Written on: 03/03/2015 by LubnaAmin (1 review written)

I used KSOL for the mock exams and the online programme 8 weeks before the exam. I can highly recommend the friendly and professional service, the team really know what they are doing and I am impressed with the level of data analysis they conduct, as an accountant this makes a difference to my understanding. I thought the online questions were well structured in terms of progression of difficulty, and the Mock exams were invaluable in terms of taking away the mystery of sitting an exam under… Read Full Review

“KSOL made a real difference”

Written on: 03/03/2015 by GenesisMcCulloch (1 review written)

KSOL made a real difference with our 11+ prep We initially home tutored our daughter but found the KSOL work to be much more challenging The online work suited us as we could fit in when convenient and the feedback was good The mock exams were also extremely useful in preparing for the 11+ exams as they got daughter used to exam conditions, the likely exam format and the stress of the whole exam experience and the feedback on where to improve really helped Our daughter felt that the actual… Read Full Review

“Intensive tuition, but effective!”

Written on: 15/04/2014 by Sparksup198 (1 review written)

KSOL provides thorough and effective teaching at the weekly sessions that really helped my child get to the root of any problems. The daily computer activities are particularly good as they are short, progress through levels and give instant feedback. My son also attended some exam training sessions which really helped him with timing and exam technique. The company is well run and the tutors have high expectations of the students. However, the course is intense and parents need to make time… Read Full Review

“Positive outcome”

Written on: 24/03/2014 by 445Parrish (1 review written)

KSOL enabled us to understand what was required of our daughter in order to be ready to do the 11+ exam. The mocks were really helpful to experience the large room full of students and the results allowed us to pinpoint target areas over the summer before the exam. We scored an AQS for our first choice grammar. Thrilled… Read Full Review

“A must have experience”

Written on: 24/03/2014 by Phillipszo442 (1 review written)

I truly recommend the program. I started when my son was in year 4. It was pretty easy at the beginning but then picked up quickly to much more tricky work. Maths, verbal and non-verbal were absolutely great. English comprehension was missing. Repetition was very useful. Mock exams were definitely useful for the children. However it was quite daunting that we, as parents, were not allowed to have the material, which was available with other mock exams with different business. The detailed… Read Full Review

“A little extra help, a lot of extra confidence”

Written on: 22/03/2014 by Blake301 (1 review written)

I would definitely recommend KSOL, and would certainly use this service again for my younger children. My son found most of the online tests fairly easy, but they highlighted some areas of weakness, which could then be addressed. I feel that the most beneficial aspect was the mock exam, which allowed him to get used to the formal exam environment without any of the pressure. Would he have passed without KSOL - probably, but he went into the exam totally relaxed and feeing confident. Money… Read Full Review

“All the difference”

Written on: 07/03/2014

My daughter has just been offered her first preference grammar school, Kings Edwards V1 Camp Hill which is undoubtedly down to the difference made by the KSOL team. Although she was already bright and able, the programme focussed on her specific weak areas as well as invaluable exam techniques and tips. By the time she came to sit her 11+ she was fully prepared and pretty relaxed having done four previous mock exams. Despite the extra effort of attending on Saturday mornings as well as the… Read Full Review

KSOL are the Market Leaders if you are serious about your child passing the 11 plus exam. KSOL helped my son passed all of the exams including KES and QMGS. He also got a place at Camp Hill, one of the toughest schools to get into in the Country. The Team are the best and I will be sending my second son there as well… Read Full Review

“Thank you KSOL Team !!”

Written on: 06/03/2014 by AlexisBird (1 review written)

I wish to thank the KSOL team for their fantastic approach to preparation for 11+ and also independant school entry. The method and structured approach which KSOL adopts with a targeted approach to address individual child's needs is excellent. I can attest to this because BOTH our twin children with quite different personalities were provided support which targeted their individual areas where they needed help and addressed them. Our children appreciated the environment and encouragement… Read Full Review

“Success achieved with KSOL”

Written on: 24/02/2013

Our son would not have achieved his place at KES Birmingham without KSOL - it is a simple as that! The daily on-line tests are backed up by superb tutoring on Saturdays (in Shirley), challenging the pupils to push their knowledge well beyond what they encounter at school. All the tutors genuinely care about the children, and hone in on areas each child needs to work on. The four mock exams were invaluable for our son in developing key exam and time-management techniques, so that when he came to… Read Full Review

“Absolutely Fantastic”

Written on: 27/04/2012 by Parveen1 (1 review written)

Having attempted some private tuition for my daughter, I felt that she was not being challenged and needed more fun, yet working hard at the same time. KSOL was mentioned to me and I started her on the intitial online package, which at first seemed easy, but what it is doing was building the foundation for your child to achieve whatever they wish. She then went on to the graduate package with the online tests and the visit to the centre every Saturday. The team here were great motivators and… Read Full Review
