HOW TO PASS THE 11+ KENT TEST 2023
If you and your child are considering a grammar school placement in Kent, your child will need to pass the Kent Test.
The Kent Test is an assessment which will test all of the vital skills and knowledge required for a grammar school student.
Although passing the Kent Test does not automatically guarantee your child a placement in a grammar school, your child will be one step closer to securing their placement.
Acceptance into grammar schools will all depend on a child’s scores. With our Kent Test Practice Papers, you can make sure that your child is as prepared for the Kent Test as possible.
UNDERSTANDING THE 11+ KENT TEST
Before we provide you with some sample 11+ test questions, you need to understand what the Kent Test is, who is expected to take it, and how to improve your chances of securing a grammar school placement.
“What is the 11+ Kent Test?”
At the end of year 6, students will be entering the secondary school phase. Each student will need to apply for a state school, whether that being:
- A Community School;
- A Foundation School;
- An Academy;
- A Grammar School.
If your child wishes to apply to a grammar school in Kent, they will be expected to sit the Kent Test. This test will assess whether or not that student is ‘suitable’ for a placement in a grammar school.
As the name suggests, the KENT Test is only applicable to grammar schools located in Kent. Grammar schools outside of Kent would not require students to undertake this assessment, and may have assessments or criteria of their own.
“What score does my child need to achieve?”
In order for your child to pass the 11+ Kent Test, they must meet the following requirements:
- A score of 320 or more is needed to be considered for a grammar school placement;
- For each part of the test, English, Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning, a student must score 106 or more in each part if they wish to be considered for a grammar school placement.
“What does the Kent Test consist of?”
As mentioned, the Kent Test will assess particular skills and knowledge required to obtain a grammar school placement.
During the test, your child will undergo two different papers. The first paper will consist of English and Maths, and they will have 1 hour to complete the paper.
The second paper will be a Reasoning assessment, and will assess your child’s understanding on Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning. They will have 1 hour to complete the paper.
A written exercise is also given, but is not marked. Instead, this may be used by a panel of head teachers to analyse test scores.

Q2. B = Late
- Late has the most opposite meaning to ‘promptly’.
Q3. B = ‘to’
- The sentence reads as follows: They stayed up and watched the sun rise.
- This means the word ‘to’ does not fit into the sentence.
Q4. C = ‘=’
- 1000m = 1km.
- Therefore, 4000m = 4km.
