However, I have collected below a selection of links to 13+ Common Entrance revision websites, guides, notes, apps and podcasts that may be of use.  This is not an exhaustive list so please get in touch if you would like any additional pointers.​

  • In addition, the Gojimo revision app is a useful, free resource covering a range of Common Entrance subjects. Quizlet (iOS link) also contains useful revision material.

  • Furthermore, here is a link to some general information about Common Entrance, and click here to visit ISEB website (the exam board that sets the papers).  The various syllabuses can be found on this page.

  • Finally, if you are considering employing a tutor and do not feel that I am the right person to help you may want to contact some of the following well-known agencies (NB these links are not endorsements): Keystone Tutors, Oppidan Education, Bonas MacFarlane, British Home Tutors, Carfax Tutors​ and, at the more exclusive end of the spectrum, Tutors International.  

Please contact me if you have any questions, or if you feel that I might be able to help.  I can offer more detailed advice on specific subjects, and I have compiled my own revision notes for some of them.
