Invicta Grammar School 11 Plus (11+) Admissions

 

Prospective pupils must sit the Kent Test at 11 Plus and achieve the required standard to be considered for a place in Year 7. The school strongly advises that students and parents arrange a visit before registering and attend one of its open events, which includes familiarisation workshops. At the open events, school staff are on hand to answer any questions regarding the admissions process and parents will get the opportunity to tour the school with a current student.

 

Invicta Grammar School has changed its admissions process in recent years, so parents are advised to read its current admissions policy before registering their daughter for a Year 7 place.

 

How to Apply for 11 Plus (11+) Entry to Invicta Grammar School

 

Parents who wish to register their daughter to sit the entrance tests must register with the school before the exam date. To register for the Kent Test at 11+, you must complete an online registration form.

 

Once your daughter has sat the Kent Test at 11+, parents must complete the Secondary Common Application Form and submit it to Kent County Council. This process can usually be done online. The Council will send assessment results to parents in October and offers will be sent out on National Offer Day in March the following year.

Invicta Grammar School 11 Plus (11+) Exam Format

 

In line with the majority of grammar schools in Kent, Invicta uses the Kent 11 Plus exam. The Kent Exam consists of two multiple-choice papers, with separate answer sheets, in the following format:

 

  1. An hour-long exam that tests pupils’ reasoning abilities. Girls will be tested on Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Spatial Reasoning.
  2. An hour-long exam that tests English and Maths.
  3. A writing task that lasts for 40 minutes, including 10 minutes’ preparation time. This task isn’t marked for the purposes of the 11 Plus exam but may be used as evidence for borderline cases.

 

How to Prepare for the Invicta Grammar School 11 Plus (11+) Exam?

 

Kent is the largest and most competitive grammar school area in England, so it’s vital that your daughter makes the most of her revision time and resources in the lead-up to the test.

 

Research into exam revision has shown that children are likely to perform better in exams if they have revised over a longer period, rather than have crammed a day or two beforehand. This revision should be broken down into manageable doses, little and often, rather than for extended periods. With regular revision, you should see an uplift in your daughter’s performance.

 

The Kent Test covers a number of subjects and it’s possible that your daughter is stronger in some areas and weaker in others. If that’s the case, we recommend practice exam papers as a good way to highlight those areas early on. Don’t be afraid to introduce these papers at the beginning of your child’s revision for the 11 Plus, as they will allow you to monitor their progress.

 

Invicta Grammar School 11 Plus (11+) Exam Pass Marks and Target Scores

 

Following the exam, your child will receive three standardised scores, one for English, one for Mathematics, and one total score including Reasoning. In order to pass the exam, your child’s standardised score must be over 109 and their total score must be 332 or more. [1]

 

Based on historical data, we have found that students who are able to score 75%+ consistently in our 11+ Kent practice tests are on track to pass the Invicta Grammar School Test.

 

Whilst there are no guarantees, this has historically been a fairly strong indicator that your child should do well in the Invicta Grammar School 11+ exam. Please click here to learn more.
