When creating our exam papers, we draw on many different sources of information. The process includes studying and analysing past exam papers from schools across the country. The majority of these past papers are unavailable to the public. However, over the years, we have managed to get hold of a large number of them. The comprehension below is part of an actual 7+ exam paper set by King’s College School in Wimbledon. King’s is one of the country’s top schools and entrance at both 7+ and 8+ is extremely competitive.
This comprehension formed part of an English exam paper that also tested story-writing and dictation. It will give you some insight into the ability level expected at 7+ by top Prep Schools and will provide good comprehension practice for your child. We recommend that they attempt it under timed conditions. Let us know how they get on or if you have any questions or queries!
