Entrance exams to school are a tough pill for many children to swallow and for parents it can be hard to emphasise the importance of getting into the right school, or the right classes, without heaping too much pressure on. There are a few ways in which you can help your child prepare for their entrance exams however, so take note and stay positive.
Set realistic target for your child to ensure that they don’t feel burdened by the pressure attached to entrance exams. Managing progress through incremental steps and small successes will encourage your child to grow and for them to be enthused about their learning, all the while they are improving in time for their entrance exam.
Private tuition is another route to success as a fully qualified teacher will have insights into the specifics of entrance exams and the subjects that will come up that can have a huge, beneficial impact on the success of a student. Passing an entrance exam is a great step forward in education, and by hiring a private tutor you are giving your child as much foundation as possible to build a healthy education.
Practice is key to any successful student. If you know that you are heading into a stressful exam period, or have an entrance exam to take, there are specific challenges you are going to face. These will differ from usual homework or coursework. You have to be prepared to make choices, to work within a strict time limit and be clear and concise in your answers. Practicing all of this, including time management, is an important step towards success in the real thing.
