English
Although 11+ English exams vary from region to region these are the key topics that your child will be tested on:
• 11+ comprehension exercises, where children have to read pieces of text and answer questions on them
• 11+ writing tasks, where children have to write something themselves
• Punctuation and grammar problems, where children show their understanding of how English works as a language
• Spelling tasks, where children spot incorrect spellings
There are two different formats for 11+ English exam papers:
• Standard format – where children write their answers on the test paper
• Multiple-choice format – where answers are marked in a separate answer booklet
11+ English exam papers are timed and usually last between 45-60 minutes. Children should practise with timed 11+ mock test papers, as well as working through non-timed practice, so they can see what they are able to do within a given time frame.

 

 

Maths
1+ maths tests cover a broad spectrum of maths principles and concepts. They examine how effectively a child can understand and manipulate numbers.

Although 11+ maths exams vary from region to region these are the key topics that your child will be tested on:
• The ability to think and calculate quickly
• Sound knowledge of multiplication tables
• The ability to apply the four number operations (+ – x ÷) accurately
• A fundamental understanding of number relationships, measurement, mental arithmetic, geometry and data handling

Verbal Reasoning
Verbal reasoning tests assess children’s problem solving skills when working at speed, and also test how effectively they can process information.
Verbal reasoning is not part of the National Curriculum in state primary schools, and this style of assessment may feel quite strange for children who have not seen questions framed in this way before. This is why practising these kinds of questions at home is so important: it helps familiarise children with a style of testing that they won’t experience at school.
The scope and content of an 11+ verbal reasoning exam differs from region to region as there are a wide range of question types that can be included. However, the tests will usually require children to:
• Process verbal information
• Apply logical thinking and problem-solving skills
• Find and follow patterns and rules
• Determine word meaning
• Spell accurately
• Apply basic maths skills
• Work systematically

Non Verbal Reasoning
11+ non-verbal reasoning/spatial awareness is often used as a neutral way of testing aptitude levels in children. It does not require any prior knowledge and can be used to determine a candidate’s potential to think logically and recognise patterns.
Non-verbal reasoning/spatial awareness is not part of the National Curriculum in state primary schools, and this style of assessment may feel quite strange for children who have not seen questions framed in this way before. This is why practising these kinds of questions at home is so important: it helps familiarise children with a style of testing that they won’t experience at school.
The scope and content of an 11+ non-verbal reasoning/spatial awareness exam differs from region to region as there are a wide range of question types that can be included. In addition, it is important to establish if non-verbal reasoning/spatial awareness is tested by the Local Authority (LA) that administers the 11+ in your area, as not every LA tests this subject.
If non-verbal reasoning/spatial awareness is one of the subjects your child will be tested on as part of the 11+, the non-verbal reasoning/spatial awareness exam will usually require children to:
• Process graphic or pictorial information
• Apply logical thinking and problem-solving skills
• Use spatial awareness – how objects relate to each other in space
• Find and follow patterns and rules
• Apply maths skills – rotation, reflection and symmetry
• Work systematically
There are two different formats for 11+ non-verbal reasoning/spatial awareness exam papers:
• Standard format – where children write their answers on the test paper
• Multiple-choice format – where answers are marked in a separate answer booklet
11+ non-verbal reasoning/spatial awareness exam papers are timed and usually last between 45-60 minutes. Children should practise with timed 11+ mock test papers, as well as working through non-timed practice, so they can see what they are able to do within a given time frame.
