Ditcham Park School 11 Plus (11+) Exam Format

 

The Ditcham Park School 11+ entrance examination consists of the following papers:

 

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Non-Verbal Reasoning

 

The English paper examines both comprehension and writing skills, including inference, spelling, vocabulary and punctuation. Marks will be awarded for good use of imagination, creativity, form, purpose, organisation, cohesion and sentence structure.

 

The maths exam assesses your child’s problem-solving abilities and arithmetic skills. The paper may include questions on number, measurement, geometry, algebra and statistics.

 

The Verbal Reasoning paper is primarily designed to test and assess logical thinking, use of English language and vocabulary.

 

The Non-Verbal Reasoning test measures the ability to understand, interpret and problem-solve, assessing logic and intelligence rather than knowledge.
