Mock Test Demos

Information - How The Tests Work

What do the BOFA® Mock Test Demos include?

The information found below is designed to help you get the best out of this BOFA® Demo Mock Test and to understand formative learning. Use this Demo to refresh you memory of your specific exam structure prior to sitting the ISEB Common Pre-Test, London 11+ Consortium test, school entrance exam or a BOFA® Mock Test.

Quantity of BOFA® Mock Tests 

There are 21 full BOFA® ISEB PreTest Mock Tests and 1 Demo PreTest.

There are 12 full BOFA® London 11+ Consortium Mock Tests and 1 Demo Consortium Test.

There are 12 full BOFA® Mock Tests for each specific school we cover and 1 Demo Mock Test.

The Demo Mock Tests are very short and have two purposes:

  1. To demonstrate the format of the BOFA® Mock Tests and how the BOFA® learning platform works.
  2. For pupils to refresh their memory on how the BOFA® Mock Tests work prior to doing the actual ISEB Common Pre-Test/London 11+ Consortium test/school entrance exam, or a BOFA® Mock Test.

  Only pupils with purchased BOFA® Mock Test packs are able to retake the Demo Mock Tests.

  Each BOFA® Mock Test pack contains 3 Mock Tests.

  All packs are set at the same level of difficulty.

  It is NOT possible to assign the same pack to a pupil. BOFA intuitively knows which pack to assign next.

  The BOFA® Mock Tests are not linked to or subscriptions.

BOFA® Demo Mock Test Tips 

Watch the video to see how the platform works.

  Some Tips before you start...
  • Work through the initial test on your own - try to get as many wrong as possible!
  • You can then get help going through the explanations and similar practice questions.
  • Wait as long as possible before doing the retest- ignore this for the demo :).
  • Work through the retest, which contains similar questions to your errors on the initial test - again, get as many wrong as possible.
  • You can then see the errors from the retest in the report.

ISEB Common Pre-Test Candidate Information

  • Each Pre-Test contains 1 pretest in each subject, you can do the subjects in any order directed by your teacher.
  • You will need pen/pencil and paper for the Maths test and Verbal Reasoning test.
