My daughter has recently passed her 11plus thanks almost entirely to your fantastic and generous website. I withdrew her from private tuition because Chukra quickly taught me that much of the work being set was irrelevant. You also helped me to see that a good deal of commercial material is also poorly focussed. I am currently spreading the word to years 4&5 parents and all of the feedback has been hugely favourable. It's good to know that the collective socialist spirit is alive and doing well in spite of every effort to kill it, and promote only material self interest. More power to your elbow.
My daughter did extremely well
I meant to say thank you to this site when the results were announced but didn't do so, in part due to not wanting to embarass myself. My daughter did extremely well and is now off to Westcliff, her first choice. Many thanks. We would not have done it without this site.
My daughter has just heard of her success for a highly competitive school. Chuckra was an invaluable resource for helping her prepare for the exam. One of the things I found the most useful was the peer group comparisons in the mock exams. This was really helpful for people like us who were preparing the 11+ at home in isolation as it gave us a benchmark score to aim for. I am more than happy for you to use my comments in your testimonial section as I think you are providing a great resource for parents and children! I will continue to recommend you to friends.
My daughter has passed to go to her choice of secondary school
Just to say thank you for providing the free practice test papers and general english revision information. My daughter has passed to go to her choice of secondary school and her preparation was greatly aided by the sample papers and preparation information provided by your site. It meant that as her mother I was able to work with her and help her prepare for the exam rather than leave it to an unknow tutor due to being unable to get suitable practice papers. Long may your site continue to offer this service. I've another child who will be sitting the exam in the future, you can guarantee I'll be back to help support her. Thank you!
Massive thank you
I am a single mother and I just found out this morning that my son has got into the school we wanted. My daughter gained a place there a year ago, so now both my children will be going there. They both went to a state primary school, neither of them had any tutoring, we just used the online resources on this site, so I want to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU!
I passed all my exams
Thank you so much for introducing chuckra! Thanks to chuckra, I passed all my grammar school exams. In one I even got 100%. I am now in one of the number one schools. I also got a great score in my sats. If it was not for chuckra, none of this would have happened. Thanks once again!
Best £50 I have ever spent
I bought the VR Super Bundle- it was the best £50 I have ever spent.
I would personally recommend Chuckra to anyone!
A very very belated Thanks for your wonderful website, we would never have got through the whole 11+ process without this wonderful resource that you provide. My son S sat the Kent test back in september and a couple of months back we found out he passed, and extremely well, scoring 140(VR) 140(NV) and 139 (maths). We used Chuckra almost daily in preperation for the exam, the You Tube videos were an asolute godsend, and the mock test days in the summer holidays helped enormously with building up his confidence,exam technique and time management. Thank you to you and your wonderful team for all your hard work. I understand I can make a donation via the website (if not, then I would be grateful if you could send me bank details) and I will be sending a donation as a gesture of thanks but in the meantime we wish you and your team continued sucess with the website, a Happy Christmas and New Year, and we will see you again 2011 wehn we will start all over again with my daughter!
My son passed
My son passed last year after using the Chuckra Super Bundle for most of his preparation. He started at Challoners Boy's today!
Thanks for the great site
Thanks for a great website. My daughter succeeded in getting a place at Newstead Wood (so called super selective grammar) and got straight 140s in Dartford and in top 180 in Bexley. She really benefited from doing your on-line papers. Built confidence and timing and it was far easier to get her do work on line.
An invaluable resource
Over the last few months my son has been using the resources on your site in preparation for an 11+ exam. We both find the site, practice papers etc. to be an invaluable resource. The Chuckra material is excellent. I totally support and agree with your view that the current exam is not a fair test. Whatever the result of the exam I know that my sons confidence has grown immensely using the Chukra material. Could you please confirm an address that I may post a small donation to.
I have several packs of the chuckra playing cards, which I use with pupils and adult learners. They are excellent and I have recommended them to the University of Plymouth for adult learners working towards their Level 1 and 2 National Qualifications.
So many questions!
I didn't realise just how many questions there were on the website. My son will be busy for a long time!
The cards are great
The cards are great. My kids really love them, when they can get hold of them. Usually they have to wait for their grandparents to finish their game first!
I hadn't heard of chuckra before but I'm impressed with your practice papers. I've recommended you to my friends
Great site. My DD passed with a maximum!
Thank you to all the Chuckra team for such a helpful website.
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.
