The Seven and Eight Plus simplified
Originally, the 7+ was designed for girls who traditionally mature quicker than boys, for whom the 8+ was designed. However, some boys’ schools now use both examinations. We would recommend opting for the 8+ if your child is a relatively slower developer, giving another year to grow in confidence and prepare for assessment. Remember that failure at this age can be damaging to confidence so, unless your child is a robust character, trying the 7+ first may not be wise.
Primary Level Resources For The Home
In the primary phase of education, it is important that children secure the fundamentals. This truth especially holds for the fundamental topics in English and Maths, without which future academic progress is made significantly more difficult.
