The best way to prepare you child for the 11+ is to practice, practice, practice! The longer your child prepares for, prior to the exam, the more familiar they’ll become with the question types and thus the better their chances.

The real key to success in any test, is to learn the types of questions you’ll face. This means that when your child gets into the exam, they won’t even need to feel nervous – they’ll know exactly what’s coming and how to answer any type of question that they encounter.

Our online 11+ practice course is perfect for this, not just because of the sheer number of questions that we offer, but also because of the variety and difficulty of the questions. We’ve done our utmost to produce a course that covers every single level, ensuring that every child is catered for.


The 11+ is an exam that students all across the UK will sit if they wish to gain entry into a grammar school.

The eleven plus exam is divided into four different categories of assessment. These are:

  • English – This assesses your child’s ability to read a passage of text, then answer questions based on its content. This is sometimes referred to as comprehension.
  • Maths – Your child will be tested on mathematical aptitude, including understanding of measurements, operations, averages, and time.
  • Non-Verbal Reasoning – This tests your child’s ability to work with patterns and shapes.
  • Verbal Reasoning – Your child will have to correctly identify the links between words, phrases, and concepts. They will also need to spot antonyms and synonyms.

Competition to get into grammar schools is extremely high. With this in mind, it’s imperative that you give your child the best chance of success.

Which is exactly what we designed our online tuition course to achieve. With so many practice questions, tips, advice, and explanations, you can’t go wrong! We’ve worked together with industry experts to provide you and your child with the most comprehensive course on the market. So, what are you waiting for?

The English test comprises of two types of assessment: a comprehension test, and a writing-based task. These assessments will challenge your child’s ability to absorb information from a passage of text, and their creative writing ability. Our course is full of practice exercises for both of these elements, to get your child up to speed!

Top tips for English tests:

  • Make sure your child practises different methods of reading. To be proficient at the exam, they must be able to speed read, and skim read, as well as being able to understanding meanings and context.
  • Creative writing is tough to learn – perhaps the best way to get better at this is to make sure your child is reading on a consistent basis. In terms of practice, ask them to read for half an hour, then spend another half hour writing. This should help to get their brain thinking creatively!
11+ English - Sample Question


Read the passage and answer the question below:

France’s rapid capitulation during World War Two has been a source of much mockery for the past century. Intellectual criticism has been largely focused around the building of the Maginot Line – a line of fortifications built to shield French soil from a potential German invasion. The Maginot Line cost millions of pounds, and – according to some – completely failed in its purpose. But is this really true?

The Maginot Line, in the main, did exactly what it was supposed to – it forced Hitler to take another route entirely. When German forces eventually crossed into France, via neutral

Belgium, the bulk of British and French forces were waiting for them, having anticipated such an attack. Unfortunately, what they had not anticipated was the small, rather dispensary unit they were faced with. While British and French forces were preoccupied in a far corner of Belgium, the bulk of Hitler’s army crossed through the Ardennes Forest, a wooded area that had been deemed by the French as ‘impossible to traverse’. While Hitler’s generals shared this sentiment, Hitler himself, a notorious military gambler, was not so easily swayed.

Ultimately, it took just three days for German troops to advance through the Ardennes, arriving on undermanned French soil, right behind the bulk of the Maginot Line, whose static defences were quickly overwhelmed.

While historical hindsight might look unfavourably upon France, the reality is that their fall was more of a product of an extraordinary German military gamble than French incompetence.

Based on the passage, which of the following do you think most corresponds with the author’s viewpoint?

A. The author believes that France’s fall was a result of them spending millions of pounds on static defences.

B. The author believes that France’s fall was a result of their failure to embrace the requirements of modern warfare.

C. The author believes that France’s fall was a result of Hitler gambling, successfully, on traversing the Ardennes Forest.

D. The author believes that France’s fall was a result of Hitler exploiting the neutrality of Belgium to his own advantage.

The non-verbal reasoning test comprises of shape-based questions, where you will need to identify a pattern, sequence, rotation, or relationships between various types of shapes. Non-verbal reasoning can be extremely tricky if your child isn’t familiar with what this involves – as this is a logic-based assessment. For the majority of people, this is perhaps the hardest part of the 11+ exam, as the concepts tested are so different to what children learn in school. With this in mind, it’s essential to practise before the test!

Top tips for non-verbal reasoning tests:

  • Make sure your child is paying attention to every different aspect of the question. When it comes to non-verbal reasoning, there are a whole range of factors which could impact the right answer, and this means that there’s a lot of information to take in and utilise to get an answer.
  • If your child is struggling with a certain type of non-verbal reasoning question, schedule extra time to help them practice this. Our online course is full of explanations, detailing how to answer every single type of question!

The mathematics exam comprises of many different types of questions. This includes addition, subtraction, multiplication, transformations, perimeter and area, sequences, and much more! The best way to get better at maths questions, is to practice. The more your child practises, the more familiar they’ll become with each individual question type, and their brain will become accustomed to the exact requirements of each problem.

Top tips for mathematics tests:

  • Practise every single type of question that your child might encounter. Maths is a subject where repetition reaps rewards. The more practice your child does of a certain type of question, the better they’ll be!
  • Encourage your child to keep calm. Maths can be stressful, particularly for students who aren’t strong at the subject, but panicking will only increase the difficulty. The best way to tackle maths questions is with a calm and clear head.
