    Hello everyone! I'm about to start helping my brother for preparing to sit entrance exams at a grammar school. The exam will take place on the 28th of January. I know; we've left it so late due to so many circumstanceal changes occuring during that time. I am wondering now if it would be possible to do well in the 11+ entrance exams if we revise 1+ hour a day. I don't want to stress him out as he is only 11 years old.

    My question though is this realistically acheieveable? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! Have a nice day.

    I think do a little bit long maybe something like an hour and a half or maybe 2 1 hour revision periods where one is in the morning (not too early, maybe something like 11) and then one early evening (something like 5). I know these aren't big exams its only an entrance exam but that will also encourage him to have a positive attitude towards studying and revising in the future

    All the best
