“KSOL worked for us !”

Written on: 14/04/2015 by HHamilton (1 review written)

My son attended Saturday morning in Shirley and also did the daily online. He thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of KSOL. The tutor group was interesting and stretching and he enjoyed the competition with other students. It was a nice pleasant easy atmosphere and the tutors gave good feedback and were approachable. It worked for us too as he did very well in the 11+ and got high enough for any of the Birmingham and Warwick schools. The mock exams were brilliant too - we did those and also the… Read Full Review

“Great Support”

Written on: 26/03/2015 by HaleyReynolds (1 review written)

I can thoroughly recommend KSOL for 11 + support. I have used the on-line progamme for all my three and they have all benefitted enormously. It's hard work for you as a parent going through the tests with them, but enormously rewarding and gives them so much confidence, plus forces you to spend quality time with them as a parent, which in itself reinforces the positive aspect of learning (every child wants more one on one time with their parents!). I didn't use the coaching other for a… Read Full Review

“Keep up the good work!”

Written on: 21/03/2015 by ehivanov (1 review written)

First of all I'd happily like to share that my daughter has been admitted in a grammar school and solid part of the credit for this is going to KSOL. Their tuition system is tough, but very well calculated and exceptionally effective. It gives practical know-how and systematically builds the exact skills which are needed for the exam. It covers all needed areas and the practical way (real test every day) in which it is presented guides perfectly the children and gives them confidence for the… Read Full Review

“Review of KSOL 11+ tuition”

Written on: 18/03/2015

Without KSOL I don't think that our daughter would have achieved the place in the grammar school of her choice. The quality of 11+ tuition was fantastic, both in the tuition classes and online. A great organisation with great infrastructure and tutors… Read Full Review

“Good back up system ”

Written on: 17/03/2015 by Raquelb1985 (1 review written)

Our son did get a place at one of our local grammar schools and KSOL was a contributing factor. I thought that KSOL worked well in conjunction with what we were teaching him and what he was doing at school. Also very good for keeping up the tempo during the summer holidays. My only negative point (and it is a little thing) is that I thought the site was a bit dated when I first logged on (it's not responsive so doesn't optimise as well as it could on mobile/tablet devices) and it did make me… Read Full Review

“11+ revision course was fun and invalvuable preparation ”

Written on: 17/03/2015 by helenhancock (1 review written)

My son did the on-line 11+ revision course in the summer holidays before taking the test in September. We thought he would resist it but once he got going he actually enjoyed doing the daily tests and trying to beat his score. Each test was short enough not to be too onerous and the focus on identified areas of weakness was especially useful - concentrating on what he found harder rather than just going over stuff he knew how to do. It really helped keep momentum going over the summer… Read Full Review

“Very Pleased With The Online Study Programme”

Written on: 12/03/2015 by Barnettup469 (1 review written)

We live in Gloucester and the Local Authority changed the 11 Plus exam from VR to CEM only eight months before the exam so we had to catch up to the new techniques very quickly! To do this we embarked on the KSOL programme which was challenging as we didn't live locally to a study centre but was definitely a great help. Working daily was a real bonus and the Tutors were always at the end of the phone to give any help needed. I am pleased to say that last week my Son was offered a place at The… Read Full Review

“Perfect last minute run-up!”

Written on: 09/03/2015 by Kamrenx404 (1 review written)

I find KSOL quite diverse within the different subjects, hence a broad approach for any 11+ exams. We did a 3 months intensive 11+ prep course and a lot of subjects were covered. The pupils can learn as they go along, too, if coming across some more difficult questions. Good to have to do them 5x per week, this keeps the spirit going. Enough easier questions in any section, too, in order to boost the kids' self-confidence. Also, as done online, kids will love it anyway instead of the usual… Read Full Review

“So very helpful!”

Written on: 08/03/2015

KSOL is very helpful because not only are the questions relevant to the exam, but it tracks your answers week by week and puts them in a chart so you know what to concentrate on. They also organised 3 mock in exams in Aylesbury with a thorough breakdown of the paper afterwards. I'd highly recommend KSOL for general revision even if the 11+ wasn't looming!… Read Full Review

“Thanks to the KSOL team for the help they gave my...”

Written on: 07/03/2015 by DamianWade1970 (1 review written)

Thanks to the KSOL team for the help they gave my daughter in preparation for her local 11+. She's secured a place at her 1st choice; Wolverhampton Girl's High School. The daily online tests offered her structured practise tailored to push her at the right level and pace, without overwhelming or making her over confident. KSOL tuition still needs parent intervention to make the most of the learning process. Completing the tests alone will not prepare the child. Be prepared to talk through… Read Full Review

“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

“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
