Phew this is a big question!
I suggest you look at older posts here to gain an understanding of what is covered. The Grammar and Independent exams are actually pretty different in terms of English, so you may also wish to think about which exam is most important to you.

In short, the Grammar consortium exam is looking for a child who has a very wide vocabulary, good spelling and clear comprehension, and who is a book reader. I would not underestimate the high level of vocabulary and comprehension that will be required. It is not something a child can usually 'cram' for in a few months before the test - the literacy basics need to be laid well before that or they will remain weak.

The KES exam also includes traditional VR (unlike the Grammar exam) as well as an essay/writing task.
