Our existing students at Master Brain (currently in Year 5) have taken the entry test and are grouped according to their ability. Please note students will have to get the desired cut-off in all the subjects as mentioned in the tables below.

 Understanding the Master Brain Year 5 Course

Every child varies in potential and therefore the ability to stretch beyond their boundaries is limited.

It’s every parents dream that their children hit the grammar schools.  However, children are all so different.  Only 1 applicant in every 20 make it.  Sustaining the 11 Plus journey is yet another fact to consider.

11PlusAdvanced – This course is an extremely challenging programme. Children are expected to rapidly keep up to the pace of the programme.  Suitable for children/parents who can cope and adapt to exceedingly pressurising and demanding work. Suitable for fast paced learners who are eager for more challenging work.  Performance will be regularly monitored.
