"Essex is a really hard area in terms of competition. I am fortunate to have a bright son who works hard but he needed much more practice on timed work at the right standard. There are very few Essex resources available. We couldn't afford to do lots of traditional mock exams so these papers delivered and home based mocks did what we wanted and really helped him to focus on the level of accuracy needed."
"These papers are reasonably similar to those few that CSSE release so we knew they'd do a good job. We did what was suggested and used them for our son in the month running up to a traditional hall based mock exam we had booked. He got much more confident and organised when he did each successive paper which helped him then do well in the mock he sat. This in turn helped his confidence no end."

1. Carefully Researched
We conduct thorough, ongoing research to make sure that our mock exam papers are as accurate as possible. You can therefore rest assured that your child will be working to the right difficulty level, with our papers also incorporating similar instructions and timings to the actual test. We believe these 11 Plus mock tests give your child the most accurate view of what they can expect on the day.
2. Build Stamina at Home Using Realistic Essex CSSE 11 Plus Mock Papers
We aim to provide the most realistic mock exam papers on the market so that your child can build experience of the stamina and standard required in the real thing. Many children struggle on the day because they don’t realise how difficult it will be to concentrate for the full time period required. Using these papers at home helps children to get used to the high levels of stamina and concentration needed so they are best prepared for the day itself.
3. Better Value Than Mock Exam Halls
Going to a mock exam hall can be useful in terms of sitting the papers in an unfamiliar room and sitting next to strange people. However most of the benefit of doing mocks can be gained from doing them at home with realistic papers. Our mock exam packs include detailed advice on how to run the mock exam yourself including full invigilation details.
Completing three or four mock papers at home under exam conditions will provide the most rounded preparation for your child by building stamina and allowing them to learn from mistakes and cement improvement.
If you do then decide to do an exam hall mock you know you’ll get best value from it as you know your child will have experience of the style of the paper, the difficulty level and the stamina needed.
4. Understand Your Areas of Weakness
Testing your child’s abilities against our mock exam papers and reviewing the detailed answers sections will show up any areas of weakness that need improvement. It could be that your child needs to work on their exam technique, topic knowledge or core skills. Completing our mock exam papers will ensure that your child’s preparation is as tailored and focused as possible.
5. Additional Help and Advice for Parents
Each paper set comes with lots of additional benefits:
✓ Full instructions are provided to help parents make the mock exam as realistic as possible.
✓ The answer sheets are designed so that your child will learn how to handle these on the day.
✓ The timing of tests, and how time is called out, will be very similar to what will happen on the day.
