“Superb support and simply the best preparation for the...”

Written on: 21/03/2018 by jayneneal14 (1 review written)

The 11+ preparation programme offered by KSOL is fantastic. Superbly structured and with plenty of stretch and challenge to ensure the children are well prepared for the requirements of the exam. Most importantly, KSOL makes the children's learning fun: from the daily onlines to the weekly challenge to win the 'cup'. Bespoke support is offered to each individual child - and the feedback to parents is so detailed so that you always know where your child is in terms of attainment, and how to help… Read Full Review

“Consistent practise for everyday”

Written on: 10/03/2018 by wmMacKay88 (1 review written)

Loved the fact that it was something they could do everyday. The mocks allowed my child to be more familiar with the exam process. It helped tackle the extreme nerves my child suffers from. The feedback very detailed and helpful to my child’s learning. I didn’t like it when the site went down and whilst this was rare it is frustrating… Read Full Review

“Brilliant foundation for 11+ success”

Written on: 06/03/2018 by AldoBryant332 (1 review written)

Sitting the KSOL exams was invaluable at helping my child prepare for their exam and make the real exam far less daunting. I would absolutely recommend this to any parents who are preparing their child to sit the 11+ and give the academic foundation they need to enter Senior School. The gaping holes that were there from the school syllabus were filled in by studying KSOL and so it’s a fantastic tool to ensure your child is rounded in their level of education… Read Full Review

“Exceptionally good service!”

Written on: 29/10/2017 by JovannyCrawford (1 review written)

I am extremely pleased with the tailored courses provided by KSOL. The four key subjects required in the 11+ (Maths,English,Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning) are vividly taught and are in the same style as those in the real exam. The subjects are taught in great detail online and topics are age -relevant to the child. In the online tests, questions are structured in both multiple-choice and write-in format across all four subjects; preparing the child for both the grammar and… Read Full Review

“Thank you KSOL!!”

Written on: 21/10/2017 by AmiyaBallard491 (1 review written)

My daughter has passed her 11+ exam with a score of 129. We are very proud of her and extremely grateful to KSOL. She has had a great time in the master class and she always used to say " it is always fun learning there." I think, that Is the key to KSOL's success as an institute. The children are not over pressured and learning is fun and aimed appropriately.They work on the child's weaknesses and enhance their strengths and teach them time management which is so important in this exam.

“For our daughter, we had taken the online coaching...”

Written on: 21/10/2017 by 406Hurst (1 review written)

For our daughter, we had taken the online coaching from year 5 and the Masterclass (online plus one day classroom coaching per week) in Year 6, for preparing the 11 plus entrance exam. She also took the mock exams conducted by KSOL which is useful in working under exam-like conditions. Very focused teaching, exam specific and the tutor was really good. Materials are well researched and of very challenging level. Our daughter has passed the entrance for all 4 grammar schools in Trafford, under… Read Full Review

“Bad 2017 Results”

Written on: 20/10/2017 by bigrob7611 (1 review written)

1. Not good results for 2017 2. Our child and 8 others got considerably lower than predicted by the 5 mock results 3. Seems the English section was not tutored correctly 4. 2 years online & 1 year Saturday morning tutoring; 5 mocks, etc... with a poor result (based on KSOL mocks) 5. Disappointed based on feedback from KSOL and the results of the mock exams (so many kids could not have had a bad day)… Read Full Review

“The outcome we were hoping for!”

Written on: 16/10/2017 by CarloGardner1973 (1 review written)

Our daughter attended KSOL 11+ classes during Year 5. She made steady progress throughout the year, on occasions not quite hitting the mark to qualify for grammar school but the KSOL team supported her and us as parents all the way and boosted her confidence as well as helping her extend her knowledge. She qualified for grammar school which was the aim of her attending classes but it also boosted her Year 5 academic skills as demonstrated through her school reports. The KSOL team are… Read Full Review

“KSOL was very helpful!”

Written on: 16/10/2017 by Peterson25 (1 review written)

My son didn’t go to any other courses (we tried two other ones for a couple of days, but he didn’t like them) except do the KSOL online tests 5 days a wk. He also took the 4 day intensive course. Even though it was a lot to take in, the person I dealt with and his super helpful team made it fun and interesting. He has scored 268, largely thanks to his hard work and, of course, KSOL… Read Full Review

“Fantastic support and a genuine caring team”

Written on: 16/10/2017 by LubnaAmin123 (1 review written)

My daughter successfully went through the 11+ process, sititng the exam in September 2017. KSOL's support was exceptional. The team is so genuine and friendly and take an interest in each and every child's success. I could write for pages but to succinctly set out the factors that contributed to my daughter's success: 1. tailored daily tests - helped her to understand time pressures 2. going through responses in class - reinforced method and approach 3. motivated and hardworking… Read Full Review

“KSOL - Horror Results 2017”

Written on: 16/10/2017 by Hopkins247 (1 review written)

1. KSOL did not tutor for the closed/clause passages for the 2017 11+ 2. The majority of students lost 15 - 20 marks (based on KSOL Mock exam predictitions) 3. Students who took all the KSOL mocks and were predicted a. a grammar place (could not even apply for any Grammar School) b. a mid range score (ie: BV or Aston) are on waiting lists c. high mock score (85% - 90%) end up scoring in the mid 220s 4. 5 students we know of the highest was 1x 225 1 x 218 1 x205 2 x 190s all students (based on… Read Full Review

“Fantastic”

Written on: 23/03/2017

Online material and its targets and time limits helped my son to be disciplined, persistent and improve his skills in all 4 areas (English, maths, verbal and non-verbal. Mock exams are even better. He shed his fear of facing exams, grew more confident with every mock exam and kept scoring higher and higher, which immensely boosted his confidence. Interview preparation was also equally useful. He got Camp Hill and KES with scholarship. He is now heading to KES. Thank you KSOL… Read Full Review

“One of the best decisions I have ever made!”

Written on: 10/03/2017 by Madinca (1 review written)

I had not even heard of KSol until I overheard someone saying that the only children that had passed the 11+ at their local primary were the ones that had done the course. I was intrigued and tracked them down - and boy oh boy am I glad I did!! Thanks to their support, my very capable but idle (ie; would rather be playing Minecraft) son has got in to his first choice Grammar school. The daily online tests soon became part of our routine and he enjoyed competing against himself and improving his… Read Full Review
