13+ Common Entrance Revision Websites
If you have ever tried searching for Common Entrance revision websites you may not have got very far - they are surprisingly few and far between! As a general rule, schools issue their own revision notes for individual subjects, which are often thorough and impressive; however, they are understandably reluctant to publish these online.
I have collected together the following links that I hope may be of use both to pupils and to parents. As I stumble across new online resources I shall add them to the list.
Geography: Excellent notes on this page courtesy of St Hugh's Prep. School, Faringdon
Religious Studies: Common Entrance Religious Studies Revision
In addition, the BBC website usually has a wealth of appropriately presented and useful information (and games) on a variety of topics. This page deals with English, Maths and Science, whilst this page has links to the other subjects. Of course, these resources are geared around the National Curriculum and not Common Entrance, so you will have to pick and choose a little. Those preparing for a scholarship would be wise to pay a daily visit to the BBC News page; younger pupils may enjoy the Newsround page instead.
A few other relevant sites include...
The Independent Schools Examinations Board is responsible for setting Common Entrance and Common Academic Scholarship papers.
Galore Park publishes Common Entrance text books. They are also the official purveyors of Common Entrance past papers.
The Good Schools Guide contains a range of help and advice on almost every aspect of education.
Bofa has a range of interactive online resources to help pupils to prepare for 11+ English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning tests - in so far as it is possible to prepare for these.
