Plymouth GL Assessment 11+ Tests

Portsmouth schools use selective 11+ tests from GL Assessment.

Test 1 is an English multiple choice test (comprehension) paper.
Test 2 is a Maths and English (Comprehension) multiple choice paper.

Portsmouth schools run a familiarisation session on 9th June 2018. Candidates will taket an English (comprehension & composition) and a Maths paper set by the school. These papers can be taken home with mark schemes so parents and tutors can go through them.

Torbay children should use the Portsmouth familiarisation sessions as a free mock exam.
Torbay CEM 11+ Tests

There will be two test papers containing a mixture of questions on verbal reasoning and comprehension, non-verbal reasoning and mathematical reasoning. Some schools use their own 20-minute Writing papers.

Each paper is approximately 50 minutes in duration and will be divided into timed sections, and instructions will be given on an audio soundtrack.

Most questions are multiple choice and all answers are marked on a separate machine-readable answer sheet. There will be a short break between the two test papers.

Free familiarisation booklets are available from this site and practice mocks are available from the shop.

11+ Tourism: Free Mock Tests

Under the Greenwich ruling all children, of the appropriate age, have a legal right to take any 11+ exam set by any authority and cannot be denied the opportunity to sit an exam solely on the basis of their address.
 
The Office of the School Adjudicator (OSA) confirmed the right to use tests as free mocks and the right to take tests late. A Head Teacher of a grammar school has confirmed in writing: `Legally I cannot stop you entering your child for our test.'  Late testing is also a legal right.
 
Many regions do not have catchment areas. Taking 11+ exams outside home catchments does not prejudice the balance and fairness of the testing, as tests are different. To make such a claim would imply a defunct testing process.

Note: Taking a "free mock" will cost the school money. But one would expect financially astute schools to consider the financial implications of setting an early test date. Common sense dictates an earlier test is likely to be used as a "free mock" and this has been well known to occur for many years. . The University of Durham® object to this strategy when it is a legal right. We cannot image why, as if the test is resistant to prepping, what difference would free mocks make? We believe there is no evidence that any 11+ test is resistant to prepping and practise will simply improve performance.

A back door route as children are taught alongside the selective stream.
High KS2 SATs scores are also a backdoor route in to the selective stream.

Note: once you are in the grammar stream, you can be removed from the stream in some subjects so there is no guarantee of a grammar school education. Some people do not consider this bilateral school providing a "real" grammar school education for this reason.

Candidates can also take the Warwickshire 11+
