Preparing, applying and sitting for a scholarship test can be a gruelling and competitive process for a child and the child's parents, and the disappointment of not being awarded a scholarship can be demoralising and disappointing. Scholarship tests aim to identify the very best potential students for an elite school from a pool of outstanding candidates. To be of any use, scholarship tests must find often very small differences in the academic performance of very high- achieving students. A Parent's Guide to Scholarship Tests aims to help parents better understand scholarship tests, so that they can help their child do their best when it counts. The book contains: *detailed information about the CSTP, PSP, SST and ACEP scholarship tests *advice on preparing for the test *example questions and sample answers with detailed explanations, strategies and approaches *suggestions on helping your child develop the skills and abilities the tests target *advice on how to manage expectations and better understand results *case studies and advice from participating schools.
