11+ Plus Exam

11+ Exams

The 11+ is a test taken by children aged between 7 and 11.

The 11+ (pronounced "11 Plus") is a Grammar School entrance exam that's taken by children in some areas of England. Tests are most often taken in either September or January when a child is in Year 5 (Aged 9-10) in Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning, Maths and English. CEM (University of Durham) is rapidly becoming the most common exam board that grammar schools use in order to select their pupils.

The 11+ was an exam originally introduced in 1944 and its result determined whether a child entered a grammar school, secondary technical college or secondary modern school after they left primary school.

Although officially abolished in 1976 (replaced by a "comprehensive system") some areas of England have kept the system of running grammar schools alongside comprehensive schools.
