The entrance assessment for candidates applying to join Year 7 (11+) consists of the following papers:

 

  • English comprehension
  • English writing 
  • Mathematics reasoning
  • Arithmetics 
  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Non-Verbal Reasoning

 

The English papers examine comprehension and writing skills, whilst the maths papers test mathematical reasoning, problem-solving abilities and arithmetic skills.

The Non-Verbal Reasoning paper is designed to measure their ability to understand, interpret and problem-solve, testing logic and intelligence rather than knowledge.

 

Please see below for further details and recommendations on how to prepare for Felsted Prep School 11+ entrance examinations.

 

How to Prepare for the Felsted Prep School 11 Plus (11+) Exam

 

One of the best ways to prepare your child for a highly competitive 11+ entrance exam is to familiarise them with the types of questions and the format of the actual exam. You can achieve this with the use of our practice tests.

 

Consisting of thoroughly researched and up to date questions, our practice tests will help you identify the strong and weak areas in your child’s knowledge base, and thus remove unnecessary stress from the exam preparation process.

 

By getting used to answering questions quickly and under time pressure, your child will gain a significant advantage over other candidates who prefer a less structured approach towards preparation for a competitive Year 7 entrance exam.

 

We highly recommend that you make use of our practice tests in order to increase your child’s confidence ahead of exam day. They are available for immediate download, print and use after purchase.
