Key Points about 10+ Exams School Entrance

  • The 10+ admissions tests are taken in the Spring term in Year 5 for entry into Year 6 the following September.
  • The admissions process varies from school to school.
  • However these private schools typically test in English and maths with some adding a reasoning paper
  • Plus verbal reasoning and/or non-verbal reasoning.
  • The additional 10+ exams are at a slightly lower level than the 11+ examination.

How do 10+ Examinations relate to 11 plus exams?

  • 11+ exam entry continues to get ever more competitive.
  • Hence some parents choose for children to sit an exam a year earlier at around 10 years old.
  • There are only a few schools that offer the 10+ entry.
  • If students are successful at 10+, they are not required to take the 11+ examination the following year.
  • Unless they are wanting to be considered for a scholarship or bursary place.
  • Those unsuccessful students at 10+ entry are still able to sit the exam at 11+ entry level.
