WHAT IS THE 11+ KENT TEST?

The Kent Test is a specific form of 11+ testing, used by grammar schools throughout Kent. Like other forms of the 11+, it is used to assess the aptitude of Year 6 students in key areas such as Maths, English, and Reasoning.

However, the Kent Test is different from other types of 11+ test. The content and syllabus will differ, and so it’s important that you supply your child with the most accurate resources available.

If you are planning for your child to attend a grammar school in Kent, then they will need to pass the Kent Test. Schools in Kent are often over-subscribed, which means that they are incredibly selective when it comes to admitting students. This means that the Kent Test is challenging by design.

The Kent Test is divided into four different tests. These are:

  • Numerical Reasoning/Maths – Your child will be tested on the mathematical aptitude, including understanding of measurements, operations, averages, and time.
  • English – This testing area 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.
  • 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.
  • Non-Verbal Reasoning – This tests your child’s ability to work with patterns and shapes.

If your child is to succeed in the Kent Test, then they must pass all four of these sections. This will give your child the best chances of receiving a place at their grammar school of choice.

How to prepare for the kent test

At How2Become, we believe that the best way to prepare for any test is through regular testing with practice papers. This includes the 11+ Kent Test.

Since the Kent Test is designed to be extremely difficult to tutor, the best way to prepare for it is for your child to spend plenty of time sitting practice papers. This is beneficial for three reasons:

  1. It gives your child the opportunity to test the skills that they have learned.
  2. The style of questions will help your child become more familiarised with how the questions will look in the real Kent Test.
  3. A time limit will guide you and your child in figuring out how much progress they need to make before they’re ready to sit the Kent Test.

SAMPLE KENT TEST QUESTIONS

MATHEMATICS / NUMERICAL REASONING

Numerical reasoning covers a number of topics, including decimals, averages, measurements, fractions, operations, and angles. Your child will need to answer multiple-choice and open-answered questions.

Top Tips for Mathematics:

  • Practice questions to a time limit. The key to passing the Mathematics test is being able to answer questions both quickly and accurately.
  • Take the time to learn the fastest and most reliable methods of calculating answers. For example, the best way to calculate the median of a group of numbers is to write them in order of lowest to highest, then find the middle number. Physically writing the list will make it easier to find the correct answer than trying to calculate it in your own head.
Mathematics - Sample Question

Kent Test Maths 1

ANSWER = 13.5392
EXPLANATION = 6.12 + 7.4192 = 13.5392

VERBAL REASONING

In the Verbal Reasoning Test, your child will need to be able to answer questions that relate to the meanings of words and concepts, and how they relate to one another.

Top Tips for Verbal Reasoning:

  • Vocabulary is an important aspect of the Verbal Reasoning Test, since your child will be asked to identify synonyms and antonyms for various words. Since these words are almost impossible to predict, we advise that your child reads plenty of books to absorb as wide a vocabulary as possible.
Verbal Reasoning - Sample Question

From the answer options below, choose the antonym for the following word:

Wise

a) Thoughtful
b) Curious
c) Foolish
d) Interesting

ANSWER = C – Foolish
EXPLANATION = To be wise is to have knowledge or experience. To be foolish is to lack either, or both, of these.

NON-VERBAL REASONING

The Non-Verbal Reasoning Test assesses a child’s ability to identify patterns, shapes, and concepts. Your child will need to be able to tell the difference between different combinations of shapes and patterns.

Top Tips for Non-Verbal Reasoning:

  • Non-Verbal Reasoning can be scary at first, since it’s likely the first time your child has encountered questions of this nature. Sometimes, your child will need to think ‘outside the box’ to identify the correct shape or pattern.
  • The best way to prepare for this type of test is simply through attempting practice questions. The more questions that your child attempts, the more familiar they will become with the style of questioning and the types of shapes they can expect.

Kent Test Non-Verbal Question 1

ANSWER = A

ENGLISH

The English Test requires candidates to read bodies of text, and then answer questions based on them. This is similar in concept to a Comprehension test. Other question types will have candidates identifying whether or not sentences and passages contain spelling and grammatical errors.

Top Tips for English Tests:

  • Like Verbal Reasoning, one of the best ways to practise for this test is to read lots of fiction and non-fiction. Your child will become more familiar with techniques such as metaphor, simile, alliteration, personification, and more.
  • Improving spelling and grammar is also important. Your child should understand how punctuation should be best used in a sentence. Additionally, they must be able to identify whether a sentence is grammatically incorrect or not.
  • Take some time to learn some commonly misspelled words, such as “balloon”, “definite”, “separate”, and so on.
English Test - Sample Question

At least I’ve got Toby here with me, Mimi thought, My one small source of joy and amusement. On this occasion, however, Toby wasn’t being particularly well-behaved. Although a loyal companion, he had never responded particularly well to any kind of training. He would often tug on the lead when taken for walks with the family, dragging his poor owners along with him, and then stop abruptly and root himself to a spot at other times, refusing to move.

Question: What’s Toby’s relation to Mimi?

a) Father
b) Brother
c) Pet dog
d) School-friend

ANSWER = c) Mimi’s Dog
EXPLANATION = The text states that Toby would “tug on the lead when taken for walks”. It is reasonable to conclude that Toby is Mimi’s dog.
