11+ (11 plus) GL and Pretest exams – Sentence Completion – What you need to know

We’re excited to let you know about our new pack : 11+ English – Sentence Completion


Who is this pack designed for?


This pack will benefit all students aiming to improve this specific skill in the run-up to the 11+ exam. However, it will prove especially beneficial for students taking the following tests:


– 11+ English GL Assessment grammar school exams (such as in Kent, Bucks and many other regions)

– The ISEB Common Pretest


If you’re unsure if this pack will be relevant for your child, let us know which school/s you are applying to and we will confirm for you.


(If your child is taking a CEM 11+ exam, this cloze pack will be more relevant.)


Why is sentence completion important?


If your child’s 11+ exam is set by GL Assessment or if they are taking the online ISEB Common Pre-test, their exam will include a number of questions that are specifically designed to test their ability to complete sentences by choosing the correct word. This is part of the Technical English section of the test.


These questions will account for around 16% of the total marks available in the English exam. Clearly therefore, having a solid grasp of this skill can make a huge difference to a child’s overall score.


How will this pack benefit my child?


We’ve systematically gone through the relevant curricula and syllabi to identify every single type of sentence completion question that is tested in these exams.


This pack therefore covers every variation that your child needs to be aware of. Furthermore, the questions are displayed and presented exactly as they will be in the actual exam.


Completing the tests in this pack will ensure that there are no surprises on exam day, allowing your child to face these questions with confidence, knowing what to expect and how to respond.


On a more general level, these practice tests will also improve your child’s spelling and vocabulary.


What is included in the pack?


There are 20 tests in total. The first 12 tests each focus on a specific type of sentence completion question, allowing your child to become familiar with the various categories.


The final 8 tests each contain a variety of these question types mixed together, just like in the actual exam. These tests will reinforce the knowledge that your child acquired in the first 12 tests.


Each test contains 12 questions, so there are 240 questions in total.


The tests are broken down as follows:


Test 1: verbs

Test 2: verbs

Test 3: relative pronouns

Test 4: adverbs and adverbials

Test 5: conjunctions

Test 6: pronouns and possessive pronouns

Test 7: prefixes

Test 8: suffixes

Test 9: homophones

Test 10: prepositions

Test 11: comparatives and superlatives

Answer sheets are included, so your child can get used to marking their answers as they will need to do in the actual exam.


Answers are included.


This pack is available for immediate purchase and download by clicking here. We are confident that you will find it beneficial for your child’s exam preparation.


We also have sentence completion (cloze) resources available for other age levels and tests. These are, however, structured differently:
