Introduction to the Kent 11 Plus exam

The first test will be an English and Maths paper and will take 1 hour.

Each section will involve a 5-minute practice exercise followed by a 25-minute test. The English section will involve a comprehension exercise as well as some additional questions drawn from a set designed to test literacy skills.
