Practicing papers is one of the most effective ways of preparing for the 11 plus exams. There are lots of suggestions out there about how best to use practice papers as a revision tool, but at the end of the day it comes down to each individual. Everyone has a different way of learning, so it’s best to judge according to your own child. Some children will be able to complete whole papers in one go, whereas for other children it is easier to do the papers in sections.

Whatever way of learning you choose, though, it is essential to make sure your child is comfortable working within the time constraints. Remember that many of the 11+ maths exams allow 1 minute per question, so this is what you are aiming towards. In some 11+ verbal reasoning and 11+ non verbal reasoning tests, only 45 seconds per question is allocated – no small task for a 10-11 year old! That’s why it is a good idea to make sure your child is prepared. You do not want the 11 plus exam to be a stressful ordeal.

There are many practice papers that you can buy from various bookshops, but why not try our free downloadable 11+ maths practice paper. It is 30 questions long and can be used either as a standard or a multiple choice format paper.
