Format of the 11+ test
The Consortium 11+ test consists of two separate multiple choice papers.
a) Non-Verbal Reasoning (NVR)
80 questions in 40 minutes - four sets of 20 questions each lasting 10 mins (an average of
30 secs each question)
There is a worked example and 2 or 3 practice questions before each section of 10 minutes
and an opportunity for the pupils to ask questions for clarification. There are no time
warnings during each section. The whole paper takes about 50 minutes.
b) Verbal Reasoning (VR)
80 questions in 50 mins. This is challenging, and is common for pupils to run out of time and
not finish all the questions. Time warnings are given at 25 and 45 minutes.
ALL questions on both papers are multiple choice. Pupils indicate their answers on an answer
sheet. Rough paper is provided.
