Verbal Reasoning is probably considered the best way to test a child's ability to learn or innate intelligence. Many private schools in the area use Verbal Reasoning tests as part of their entrance examinations. For entry into the Grammar school system, Verbal Reasoning forms 50% of the entrance requirements.

Verbal Reasoning is a language based, problem-solving test and therefore relies on the child having a strong vocabulary. Children will be asked to match words, find links and relationships between words and numbers, construct words and look for similar or opposite meanings, as well as make simple calculations.

There are many question types that could be used in the Verbal Reasoning examination and we aim to teach all of these in our sessions.
