Due to our many years of experience in running an 11+ course from Year 3, we are confident in preparing your child for their entrance exam. We cover all 4 areas that are tested – English, Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning – with regular mocks and assessments.

In 11+ English there is usually a comprehension test in which a passage of text or information is set with several questions based on punctuation, parts of speech and English grammar. There may be a creative writing task required by some schools.

Most 11+ Maths papers test the child on all aspects of maths, including the four main rules (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and fractions, percentages, shape, area, graphs, money, measurement and time.

The 11+ Non-Verbal Reasoning test does not have any written questions, but instead it has logic-type questions based on shape, patterns, numbers, symmetry and sequences.

There are around fifty possible types of questions used in the 11+ Verbal Reasoning test. These include letter and number sequences, analogies, letter and number codes, odd one out, middle/size order, word endings/beginnings and anagrams.

What are the benefits of 11+ GL mock exams?

Many families with children who have successfully secured places in grammar schools or selective independent schools do feel that mocks are an exceptionally useful tool in preparing for the 11+ exam. Here are a few benefits of mock exams:

  • They provide structure.
  • They can lessen the stress of the real exam.
  • A mock exam is a report which helps you identify subject strengths and areas for improvement.
  • They can help your child hone their exam skills.
Learn to Achieve provides 11+ GL mock exams; they are run on a variety of dates throughout spring until autumn (April through to September are the most popular months).
