Although John had received an excellent education in Hong Kong, his parents were keen for him to benefit from a British education from the age of 13. Two years before John was due to begin at a U.K. school, his parents approached Minerva Tuition for advice on gaining entry to a British boarding school.

๐˜ผ ๐™˜๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™จ๐™ช๐™ก๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ค๐™ฃ One of Minerva Tuitionโ€™s consultants undertook a consultation with Johnโ€™s parents and then spent some online time with John. John had the potential to gain entry to a range of prestigious U.K. schools but it was evident that his English was not as strong as his maths.

๐™๐™†๐™ž๐™จ๐™š๐™ฉ A more immediate problem was that John had very little experience of Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning tests which form part of the UKiset examination. This examination is required by many UK schools; it provides them with essential information on pupils who are following an overseas curriculum. After six lessons of Verbal Reasoning and Non Verbal Reasoning tuition, John performed well in the UKiset examination.

๐™‹๐™ง๐™š๐™ฅ๐™–๐™ง๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ค๐™ฃ ๐™›๐™ค๐™ง ๐™š๐™ฃ๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™–๐™ฃ๐™˜๐™š ๐™š๐™ญ๐™–๐™ข๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™จ UKiset examinations are based on a multiple choice format; there is a considerable step-up in degree of difficulty for schoolsโ€™ entrance examinations. For example, pupils complete written comprehension tasks on prose passages of poetry for the English examinations. Candidates may also be required to spending 40 minutes writing an essay. Consequently, with a year to go, before the entrance examinations, John began specialist tuition in English, maths and science with Minervaโ€™s tutor, acquiring the examination techniques required.

๐˜ฝ๐™ช๐™ฉ... Each of Johnโ€™s tutors commented that John was rather quiet in lessons and that he might struggle to impress in admission interviews with Headmasters. Accordingly, Minerva Tuition organised three practice interviews with teachers who had experience of U.K. schoolsโ€™ admission procedures.

๐™Ž๐™ช๐™˜๐™˜๐™š๐™จ๐™จ! Feedback from the interviewers and a strong performance in the entrance examinations enabled John to gain admission to his firstchoice school. John, his parents and his Minerva teachers were delighted.
