It was a nice opportunity for my children to attend mock tests through Chukra, both my children attended them and found them very useful. Easy to book online. No complaints and all good only.
I retired last year from more than 20 years' one-to-one tutoring for 11+ entrance to both state and independent schools. For the last 10 years of that period I recommended that parents enter their children for chuckra's mock tests.
I found that this served many purposes; firstly, children from the maintained (state) sector, usually have no experience at all of formal exams or of examination procedure, which puts them at a disadvantage compared with children from independent primary schools who are often more used to a formal exam setting. Just taking a chuckra mock test gave them that valuable experience of sitting in an examination room, listening to instructions, learning to disregard other entrants' rustling of papers, sneezing, coughing, wriggling etc. and watching the clock to see how much time they had left. Secondly, it gave the complacent ones a 'wake-up call' and the anxious ones reassurance that the tests were within their capabilities and we'd been practising the right skills! Thirdly, I found that if children repeated the tests a few weeks later, they almost always did better second time round, which was a huge confidence-booster. One year I was dismayed to find that one or two papers had been less-than-carefully marked, but generally I was very happy with the whole set-up. I think the mock papers were slightly more difficult than the actual entrance papers my pupils sat (for Reading, Kendrick and independent schools in the Reading area) but that is a good thing.
Great website packed full of useful resources and info to help guide you through the whole daunting 11+ process. I found it to be a real font of all (11+) knowledge. I have two children now happily in grammar school and would highly recommend 11plus.co.uk to any parents that are on their 11+ journey – it really did help us!
I am enjoying Chuckra
I am enjoying the papers on this website and I hope they will help me to pass the exam I will be taking next year. I am hoping to get into a good grammar school. My brother passed the exam because he used this helpful website and I hope I pass too. I am really thanking Chuckra for providing the papers and quick tests because they are helping me so far. This great website gives me a chance to answer a lot of questions. I think I am improving on my maths, english, verbal reasoning etc. If I get into grammar school it will do me a great help and it will be partly because of using Chuckra.
The mocks were well organised. Providing us the whole paper to view is really great.
What I would like to know more is the number of kids attending the exam. That will give us a relative picture.
It is a bit confusing regarding the maximum. We have local % more than UK %. So is the UK % excluding the local %.
On the whole, very satisfied. Would recommend other parents in future.
A grateful user
I worked with my daughter to prepare for a super-selective grammar which accepts fewer than 10% of applicants. I wanted to keep things low-key as I didn't want her to feel under huge pressure and we both found Chuckra really helpful. We liked the mini tutorials which explained the principle behind different question types; the presentations were very approachable and easy to follow and the tests provided good practice.
One of the most useful things for me as a parent was the availability of mock tests from Chuckra with detailed score results from the cohort which had taken the test. This was invaluable as it's otherwise very difficult for an inexperienced parent to know how their child is likely to rank against their peers in a competitive exam. This is probably the only area of 11+ preparation in which a tutor has an advantage over a committed parent, and I was grateful that Chuckra made this data available at a reasonable price.
I feel very strongly that any parent with time and commitment should feel confident to prepare their child for a test which is, after all, aimed at smart ten-year-olds. Success in the 11+ exam should not be determined by wealth and the ability to pay for expensive tutors who claim special insider knowledge. Chuckra is fantastic resource for low-cost and effective material which should give any capable child a decent chance.
Got school placement of choice
Just got school placement result and DS got in to the grammar school he wanted. Made good use of the site over the years and the mock days. Thanks for all the support.
This site is one of the best
Chuckra this is a great website for nearly every child from all over the country. This site is one of the best sites and it is really helping me. Thank you Chuckra. I gave this site a rating of 5 stars because its absolutely brilliant thanks!
The Activity Report is a great idea
I think the Activity Report is a great idea. Also, although I wasn't too happy with the various changes to the website initially, now I have to acknowledge it is much better. The reports and analysis do help to target the areas that they need to work on rather than have them keep churning through papers. Well done to you and your team! Have a great weekend...

Thxs chukra for everthing!! I passed on the kent: 141nvr 141vr 123maths Total 405 Bexley: Total 236 Thx sooo much!
My son passed excellently!
I'm an out of county mum and registered my son for the Bucks 11+ which he sat last month in the half term. Before the exams we made him sit for one Chuckra mock test which indicated that he had no chance for grammar school given that test score, it was not good. After the mock my husband and I literally stretched our boy with all your on-line resources morning and evening. We didn't use an external tutor, I served as his main tutor and my husband supported. Our boy is smart however, sometimes he tends to be very lazy so we needed to push him very hard.To cut a long story short, his Bucks results came through the post today and he had SMASHED it. He passed excellently and nearly got 141! We are so pleased and want to thank you also for your on-line resources. To all parents out there who feel daunted, please keep up the hard work it will pay off.
