Gloucestershire 11 Plus Exam

How it works

Students have weekly lesson notes to learn new topics and skills for GL Assessment  11 plus exams, such as Non-Verbal Reasoning and GL Verbal Reasoning.

In addition, there are KS2 maths and English (including year 6 topics) to ensure comprehensive preparation for the 11 plus exam.

There are instantly marked tests following the weekly lesson notes.

Students should complete all tests and aim to eventually achieve over 80%.

All tests have 2 attempts available and most tests include hints and explanations.

As our 11 plus tests are instantly marked, parents can easily see the final percentage achieved.

At the end of each test the categories are listed (eg: NVR- Rotation, NVR-Reflection or Maths- Fractions, English- Spellings) with the corresponding percentage achieved.

This gives parents the ability to identify their child’s weaknesses and the opportunity to boost those areas.

Our year 5 course includes 3 GL Assessment style mock exams, as we know how important it is for students to sit practice exams before their 11 plus exam.
