The 11 Plus (also called the 11+ or Eleven Plus) is an examination taken by some school pupils in their final year of primary school. Most children will only be 10 years old when they take the test. The term “11 Plus” refers to the fact that the test selects for schools with an entry point for children aged 11 or over. The qualification rate for the 11 Plus test varies considerably around the country. Some schools attract thousand applicants for as few as 180 places - the four grammar schools in Kingston and Sutton are an example of such over-subscription, with a pass rate of perhaps 3 per cent.
How does the programme work?
There are four different "disciplines" used for the 11 Plus tests - Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning, Maths and English. At i12Learn Tuition Centre, school pupils will go through a structured 11 Plus programme covering two compulsory subjects (English Language and Mathematics) and two optional subjects (Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning). English Language will be with further emphasis on creative writing, reading comprehension, grammar, punctuation, vocabulary enrichment and interview technique. Each week visit to the Centre your child will be given a detailed programme of homework to be completed before the next lesson. The homework plays a vital role in your child's progress by ensuring constant consolidation of the skills learned at the Centre. The homework will be marked by the tutor.
Before your child starts 11 Plus programme, he or she will be assessed by the Centre. This assessment will assist to determine the current academic level of your child and identify the specific needs to ensure a suitable point in the course.
