Why is the 11+ exam important?

The 11+ exam is important as it is the first major exam that students take which will have a significant impact on their education. Passing the 11+ is crucial for getting into the majority of leading grammar schools in the UK, as well as some independent schools.

What are the 11+ exams?

  • There are two main exam boards for the 11+: the CEM (Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring) and GL (Granada Learning).
  • The exam board that you will be sitting this year depends on the county of the schools you are applying to.
  • Although the exam board you will be sitting is usually dependent on the county, there are some exceptions to this.
  • Therefore, it is important to ask the school you are applying to which exam board they require.
  • The CEM assessment consists of Numerical reasoning, Verbal reasoning and Non-
    verbal reasoning.
  • In contrast to this, the GL assessment consists of English, Maths, Non-verbal reasoning and Verbal reasoning.
  • Due to the difference in topics between the two exam boards, there are different methods to revise for each exam board. These
    methods will be covered later on in this blog post.

Key 11+ exam 2022 Dates

  • April 2022: Most grammar schools open registration in April/May and the deadline is generally around June or July for parents to register their child for the 11+ exam. However there is some variability, so it is important to check the precise dates with the schools you are applying to. Some counties such as Buckinghamshire automatically enter all primary children for the 11+ exam and parents can then choose to opt out to
    withdraw their child from the process.
  • September 2022: For most grammar schools, the 11+ exam will occur during the first two weeks in September 2021. However, this year there are quite a few differences in when the exam will occur, and the dates range from September to October. Here are some key dates to watch out for:
  • October 2022: 11+ results will be posted in mid-October 2021. However, depending on when the exam occurs in your county, this may differ.
  • March 2023: School allocations are confirmed on 1 March 2022.
  • September 2023: New intake begins Year 7 at grammar schools across the UK.

How the 11+ exam 2022 has changed

Unlike last year, the 11+ has not changed much this year despite the effects that the pandemic has had on education and schooling. Exams will be in person this year in contrast to the exams being online last year. Furthermore, there has been little to no change in the content. That said, most counties have delayed the date for the examination. Due to the exams being pushed back, results day has also been postponed. Some schools will still be carrying out interviews in addition to the usual exams, although this is not the case for all schools.

This year many students have had a far lower quality of education as many teachers have had to adapt to teaching online and a significant number of students struggled to continue learning as normal. Due to this, revision and revision methods will be vital this year to ace the 11+ exam as plenty of content was not covered by schools. An effective method of catching up on missed work is by getting a tutor or using a free tutoring app such as EasyA. Apps such as EasyA give free 1:1 maths tuition to students from passionate tutors that are keen to teach. The majority of EasyA tutors attend leading
universities around the country such as Cambridge and Oxford.

 

How best to prepare for the 11+ exam 2022

To ace your 11+, you must make sure that you use your last few months leading up to the examination as effectively as possible. Here are some steps that you can follow to ace the 11+ this year:

  • Create a list of all the topics that will be coming up in the test for each section. Then complete a handful of exam-style questions for each topic and put a tick or cross next to the name of the topic depending on how confident you feel on it. This is crucial as it will prevent you from wasting your precious time on topics that you have already mastered rather than spending time on the topics that you actually struggle with. It is also important to update the list after you’ve mastered a new topic!
  • Little and often. It is important to revise topics frequently no matter how little you do. This is because it helps solidify the information in your mind. One good way to ensure that you are revising little and often is by doing ten-minute tests. There are lots of books by CGP and Bond which have these ten-minute tests for each section to check your understanding of the topic.

11 plus exam preparation tips

  • It is also vital to do frequent 11+ mock exams. Mock exams are great to practice exam technique as well as to get used to exam conditions. Mock exams allow you to work under the time limit meaning that you practice working under time pressure. These examinations can also be used to track topics that you commonly lose marks on which you can then focus on. Alongside this, results from mock exams can be a good indicator of how well you are doing.
  • Arguably the most difficult aspect of the 11+ is vocabulary and verbal reasoning. The best method to improve your vocabulary and comprehension skills is by reading books and articles. Whilst reading, it is very useful to write down any words that you don’t know the meaning of… then to learn what they mean and how to use them in a sentence. This is a great way of perfecting your English for the 11 plus exam 2021.

Why use 11 plus exam 2022 tuition?

One of the best ways to prepare for the 11+ is by getting a tutor or using an app that provides 1:1 tuition.

Although tuition isn’t necessary to pass the 11+, it gives you a huge advantage and helps you prepare for the exam.

Tuition is especially useful if you are applying to competitive schools. If you can’t afford 1:1 tuition, EasyA is the only app to provide it completely free.

Furthermore, EasyA allows students to get maths help and tuition whenever they need it – without having to wait. Our tutors all attend the top universities across the country and the app was awarded ‘App of the Day’ by Apple.

More information on how EasyA works is available here.

 

Will the 11+ exam 2022 have a higher pass mark?

All students sitting the 11+ this year will be in the same situation so although it may seem unfair, it is a level playing field. Furthermore, you can capitalise on this situation by preparing and revising – something a lot of students simply haven’t learned how to do.

Using 11+ exam tutoring services

The EasyA app can put you at a major advantage, enabling you to ace the 11+. Particularly as passing the 11+ in 2021 does not guarantee you at place at those grammar schools with other selection factors.

In 2021, some grammar schools will interview for the right fit. Student distance from the grammar school is another key factor. Plus, many schools look at whether or not you have any siblings that have attended or are attending the school.

Our guide to the CEM 11 plus exam 2022 

CEM exams are more difficult to predict as the test was designed specifically to be less transparent and create a fairer assessment. There is no clear answer as to how many questions there will be in the 11 Plus exam and how much time students are given overall.

There is no exact format for the exam as this changes every year. As CEM exams are designed to be less transparent and to test children on the skills that are not easily able to be practiced, they tend to be the trickier parts to the GL 11 Plus exams.

Past CEM exams have included two 45-minute papers, four separate papers, or one combined paper covering all the topics above.

The CEM 11 plus format containing two 45-minute papers is the most common structure seen in the CEM exam. The exam can be either multiple choice or free response depending on the topic. Each paper will have a combination of topics including Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Numerical Reasoning. Students will be given different amounts of time for each section, ranging from 6 to 12 minutes. Students are only able to proceed to the next section when they are told to do so.

CEM exams are more difficult to predict as the test was designed specifically to be less transparent and create a fairer assessment. There is no clear answer as to how many questions there will be in the 11 Plus exam and how much time students are given overall.

Our guide to the GL 11 plus exam 2022 

For GL exams, there are typically 45 questions in the maths section, to be completed in 45 minutes. There are also typically 50 questions in the English section to be completed in 50 minutes. In the 2020/2021 entrance exam, students are given an additional 5 minutes for the maths section.

11 plus Tutoring Pros and cons

We examine what 11 plus tutoring agency Kumon has to offer. Plus consider other popular 11 plus tutoring agencies: Explore Learning and The Student Support Centre.

Every parent wants the best start in life for their child. For many, this means a good education. And while schools obviously do a good job in teaching children, an increasing number of parents are turning towards external learning programmes. Why? Because they hope it will give their children an added educational boost and help them get on in life.

Perhaps the most famous of all these programmes is Kumon. Founded by Japanese educator Toru Kumon in the 1950s, it was first established in the UK in the 1980s. It is now the largest supplementary education provider in the UK and Ireland with more than 70,000 children studying at 650 centres.

Worldwide, Kumon claims to have 4 million students at 26,000 centres in over 50 countries. This includes the US, Australia, Canada, Germany and Brazil. These are run on a franchise basis in much the same way as businesses such as McDonalds, Costa Coffee and Subway.

Although a privately held company, Kumon is thought to be worth over $650 million.

Can Kumon help my child's education?

How does the Kumon Method work?

Kumon is essentially a system for learning Maths and English (the original focus was on Maths, but an English programme for native speakers was added in 1997). It’s designed as an independent programme with instructors and their assistants tailoring education for individual students.

Upon entering one of its centres for the first time, each student is given an initial assessment of his or her abilities regardless of their age. Based on the results, the instructor then gives the student an individualised study plan.

Although the majority of students are primary school age, some are as young as 2. Others study Kumon until they go to University.

All Kumon programmes are pencil and worksheet based, with the maths system built around 4,000 worksheets spanning 23 skill levels – from basic counting to calculus. Reading is taught in similar building blocks.

Students must complete their worksheets within a certain time frame. If there are any errors they have to take similar worksheets away to complete for homework. Students advance to the next level only after they complete a mastery test based on speed and accuracy. If they fail, they can retake the exam until they have demonstrated a full understanding of the material.

What does Kumon cost?

Before starting you will need to pay a one-off registration fee of around £40 in London. The cost is then around £65 per month per subject. This includes two 30 minute sessions a week at one of the study centres (often these are schools or church halls). The student will also receive five other sets of work each week.

Most centres offer a two-week trial so you can see how your child gets on with the Kumon programme before fully committing.

One criticism is that many students find the work boring and repetitive because it focuses on rote learning rather than understanding the subject matter.

They also say their children have little time to complete the homework from school and the Kumon work. As a result, they can become quite stressed.

However, evidence suggests children who start on the Kumon programme from a young age may learn valuable long-term life-skills such as self-reliance and managing their time appropriately. Some also progress more quickly in school but this might not happen immediately.

Are there any alternatives to Kumon?

For those unsure about Kumon, several other learning programmes are available. One of these is Explore Learning. Like Kumon, it offers Maths and English teaching for 4-14-year-olds. However, it also adds 11 Plus/entrance exam tuition too.

Currently, there are 139 Explore Learning centres across the UK. These include centres within shopping centres such as Westfield London, Lakeside, Cabot Circus and Sainsbury’s supermarkets. Over 35,000 attend these centres every week.

Explore Learning’s Maths and English tuition is aligned to the national curriculum. The downside is that it’s expensive. Maths and English tuition typically cost between £109 and £134 per month for two sessions plus a joining fee of £50.

Tutoring for the 11 Plus is even more pricey  – between £135 and £160 per month for three sessions per week (Maths, English, 11+). Some parents also complain that the program is overly reliant on computer software rather than teaching.

Kumon Method – DVD-based learning programme

Another learning programme which has attracted much attention recently is the Student Support Centre. Instead of the child having to go to a specific learning centre every week, the Student Support Centre’s ‘Simply’ programme claims to offer individualised learning via a series of DVD-based lessons.

Once your child has watched a DVD, they simply complete one of the exercises provided with the accompanying textbook. Like Explore Learning, the Student Support Centre is based around the national curriculum. But again it’s not cheap. Typically each ‘Simply’ learning programme costs around £1650 for a course of lessons.

Several learning programmes exist in the UK with Kumon, Explore Learning and Student Support Centre the best known three. Others include Kaplan and Sylvan Learning.
