What is the 11+ Examination?
If you wish your child to attend a selective state grammar school, then you will need them to sit and to pass the 11 Plus Exam (also called the 11+ or Eleven Plus). In reality, most children will only be 10 years old when they take the test; and the term “11 Plus” refers to the fact that the test selects for schools with an entry point for children aged 11 or over.
There are over 164 Grammar Schools remaining in England, with the potential for numbers to grow. The pass rate for the 11 plus test varies considerably around the country.
Often private tutors are used to help children prepare for this exam. The tutor will first ensure that foundation skills are rigorous, before then shaping the tuition towards the demands of this unusual exam; and then building confidence and a good exam technique, to ensure that the child can perform to their full potential on the day. Tuition generally begins a year or two in advance of the exam. The 11+ exam takes place at the beginning of Year 6.
There are generally up to four different “disciplines” used for the 11 Plus tests: Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning, Maths and English. The combination of test papers varies around the country.
