What are BOFA Pre-Tests?
BOFA Pre-Tests are a mock ISEB Common Pre-Test exam.
Our Pre-Tests are sold in packs of 3 Pre-Tests as we believe this is the minimum number of tests a child would need to complete to begin to feel comfortable with the format of the un-user-friendly exam.
As the Pre-Tests are designed to be taken as a mock exam, and therefore unlike our 11+ tests, they cannot be paused or retaken. Please ensure you allow enough time to complete a subject test in one sitting and that your device is fully charged with a stable internet connection. You do not need to complete each Pre-Test in one sitting, but each subject test must be completed in one sitting.
The time allocation for each subject test is as follows:
Verbal Reasoning has 36 minutes.
Non-Verbal Reasoning has 32 minutes.
Maths has 50 minutes.
English has 25 minutes.
In order to replicate the exam our default is to not display the on-screen clock, we recommend you do not override this default and discuss using a watch or clock in the room along with the on-screen progress bar to judge how far through the test the pupil is. If your child is allowed extra time in the exam you can set the same allowance in BOFA by logging into the parent account and amending the Test Options in the edit pupil page.
