The CSSE (Consortium of Selective Schools in Essex) 11+ examination consists of 2 papers. Both papers take 1 hour and they are of equal weighting in terms of marks. Both papers are based upon Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum.

The English paper covers the following areas:
• Comprehension, grammar and vocabulary questions
• 2 pieces of creative writing
• Applied reasoning (literacy and verbal)

• The maths paper covers applied reasoning

We run classes to gear them towards the CSSE test. Our 2 hour maths and English session covers the key topics that will appear for the test. Our classroom and homework resources have been well developed and refined over the years to ensure that our children get the school of their choice. Not only do we pride in our success rate of 92% , but also in the fact that a majority of students achieve an average of 360 cut off , a 100% in mathematics . A few of the recent years have witnessed the highest cut off, the highest in mathematics and English were children from Master Brain.
• Creative Writing
Our Creative Writing session has been an all time favourite. Apart from training for the exam, the aim is to instil a passion to write.
• Mock Exam
We run a series of CSSE Mock Exams from June. These tests will offer the child a platform to experience examination conditions. The results give the teachers and parent a better understanding of strength and weaknesses to ensure they fine tune and ensure learning is all wrapped up before the exam.
