Exam Training

Alquin Exam Training provides comprehensive support for students in the Netherlands preparing for their final exams. Our Exam Training is tailored to the different educational levels (VMBO-GT, HAVO and VWO). Each Exam Training comprises two essential books. In Book 1, we present 8 to 10 of the most recent final exams, allowing students to familiarize themselves with the exam format they will encounter. This book is dedicated to the exams themselves, ensuring a focused and realistic practice environment. In Book 2, we delve into the intricacies of each exam, providing detailed comments on both correct and incorrect answers. Each text comes with an upfront orientation, a content summary, and a thorough explanation of the questions. This way, students not only understand why a specific answer is correct but also gain insights into why alternative answers are incorrect. Alquin Exam Training is not just about practicing old exams; it's a strategic and insightful approach to exam preparation, equipping students with the knowledge and confidence they need to excel in their final exams.
