- Have you ever wondered how top schools select their smartest students?
- Do you want your children to become competitive for school selection and future
- Do you know that CATs preparation courses will assist your children’s thinking with the
- Thinking with numbers (Number Analogies, Number Series, and Equation Building).
- Thinking with shape and space (Figure Classification, Figure Analogies, and Figure Analysis).
You Need Us!
- CATs teachers who fully comprehend the how top schools assess your child’s ability in three different areas: verbal (thinking with words); quantitative (thinking with numbers); and non-verbal (thinking with shapes and space).
- Expert CATs trainers who can coach your children to process graphic or pictorial information, apply logical thinking and problem-solving skills, use spatial awareness (how objects relate to each other in space), find and follow patterns and rules, apply maths skills – rotation, reflection and symmetry, and work systematically.
- Teachers who can prepare students for both “Standard Test Format” and “Multiple Choice Format”
- Teachers who have a track record in preparing pupils for the 11+ non-verbal reasoning exam papers that are timed and usually last between 45-60 minutes.
- Teachers who coach children, practise with mock test papers, as well as working through non-timed practice, so they see what they are able to do within a given time frame.
- The CAT assesses an individual’s ability to reason with and manipulate different types of symbols.
- Three main types of symbols play a substantial role in human thought. These symbols represent:
o spatial, geometric or figural patterns.
- The main uses of CAT scores are:
o to identify an individual pupil’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses in order
o to inform teaching and learning;
o to compare the performance of groups of pupils, in order to identify needs;
o to target resources better;
o to identify pupils, or groups of pupils, who may be underachieving;
o to monitor trends or changes in the ability profile of the intake over time;
o to inform target setting with regard to national tests and public examinations;
o to set a baseline against which to assess the ‘value added’ by the school.
- CATs are used to give a snapshot of a child's potential, what they could achieve and how they learn best. The results can help teachers to set the right learning pace for each child, monitor their progress and identify areas where they might need extra support.
- Small groups and spacious classrooms allow your children to complete their work happily.
- Our team of UK educators, with more than 40 years combined experience in UK and Dubai know the methods used in schools today.
