How to Prepare for the Eaton Square Upper School CAT4
For 11 Plus entry, Eaton Square School uses the Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4).
As way of an introduction to preparing for the CAT4 assessment, we’d recommend reading the following resources:
– Independent School Cognitive Abilities Tests (CATs) for Year 4-8 Entry
– Year 7 CATs: Everything Parents Need to Know
– Study Skills for the Cognitive Abilities Test in Primary School
– How to Improve CAT Scores
One of the most effective ways to prepare for an assessment is to create a detailed study plan that outlines what topics need to be studied before test day. As part of the schedule, we’d recommend that parents allow time to practice exam technique for the CAT using practice tests and courses. Not only do these help familiarise students with the layout of the test, but they also allow students to answer practice questions that may be similar to those asked on exam day.
We specialise in publishing CAT4 practice tests and courses to help students improve their confidence. We have four 90-minute practice tests available, each consisting of 8 modules that cover Verbal, Non-Verbal, Quantitative and Spatial Reasoning questions.
Each of our practice tests is pitched at the same difficulty level but contains a unique set of questions. The first provides parents with an indication of their child’s current cognitive abilities, whilst the remaining can be a great way to benchmark and monitor progress and improvement.
