Get your brain cells working with Non verbal
As part of many schools entrance exam process, selective and 11 plus UK
grammar schools use Non-verbal reasoning as a tool to test the aptitude
Non-verbal reasoning questions are in pictorial form. 11 + schools consider
them as a reliable source of measuring ability because they are required in
Maths, Science, Design and Technology where graphic, logical thinking,

Our non-verbal reasoning tuition provides preparation for exams giving them
a strategic advantage in an interesting way. There are certain non-verbal
reasoning type of questions.
We teach children the techniques of passing the exam n a fun and enjoyable
way. Learning these methods considerably reduces the chances of getting
them wrong and is a valuable approach in passing the tests.

similarities, analogies, sequences, hidden shapes, matrices, reflected shapes,
nets of cubes, codes and combined shapes.
How long do I need to prepare for the Non Verbal
Most children will need 18 months practicing these exams but some will
show natural ability and will need little practice. For most children, starting
in year 4 is important as competition for grammar places is increasing each
year. Practicing daily and regularly is key. Bite size learning is better.
