You can start practice papers too early and it is important to check that your child has covered most of the syllabus before they start practice papers in earnest.
If they don’t know how to answer many of the questions, they may become disheartened and demotivated. Your tutor can advise when it is appropriate to begin exam practise.
It is trickier to practice digital tests, given the scarcity of resources for these fairly new exams. There are no official practise tests for the ISEB Common Pre-test apart from one short and clunky familiarisation test available on the ISEB website.
The ISEB also does not endorse any other practice resources that have been created to practice this test. This year they have released previous ISEB 11 Plus written papers for the first time on the Galore Park website and these would be very useful to practice with.
In terms of practising the digital test, we believe the most developed ISEB digital practice tests are from:
Galore Park are the official partners of the ISEB and they do provide written practice questions.
These will be a good help in ensuring your child has covered the syllabus and has had sufficient question practice, but crucially cannot help children familiarise themselves with the digital exam.
