How to prepare for 11 Plus exams

September 06, 2013 by Hannah Schofield-Newton

For those parents who would like their children to sit 11 Plus exams for secondary school entrance, it is often hard to know what to use for exam preparation, so here are some links to useful resources in various 11 Plus practice materials for Maths, English, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning.

It is often said that practice is the best way to prepare for exams, especially as 11 Plus exams have strict time constraints which children need to get used to.  Practice therefore helps children not only develop the techniques to answer the certain type of 11 Plus questions but to also answer them in the time provided.

According to Susan Daughtrey Education, it is best to start preparing your child about ten months before they sit the exams as this gives enough time for them to build the right techniques and have three or four months of practice and testing before the actual exam.
