Hi everyone my DD will be sitting her 11+ this year and I am just wondering what books would be most suited to the Medway and Kent tests please.

I have currently been working through Letts nfernelson, leckie and Schofield & Sims. We are going to be increasing what we do from Easter so looking for some good books, sites and activities please.

Maths is her weekest subject so looking to improve it as much as possible.

Hello,
My DD did her exam last year and managed to secure a place at a grammar school in London. My suggestion would be some independent school papers, as my experience of finding her papers shows me that independent school papers tend to differ in difficulty, as opposed to other papers like Bond and Letts which are grouped according to age. Some independent school have a higher academic standard which means the papers are harder, and some are easier.
http://www.sevenoaksschool.org/y7downloads The Sevenoaks School papers are medium-difficulty, I'd say. A really challenging on would be on the Bancrofts School websites, though I would not recommend that until the Summer Holidays-July/August. http://www.st-anselms.com/224/entrance-exam-papers These are the St Anselm's College papers, also medium difficulty. Start with
http://www.christs-hospital.org.uk/pros ... ssessment/ This is quite good for a start!
I think the best would be to find more on Google!

yep, as previous poster has said, just type 11+ examination papers into Google and a whole host of school sites appear. I am doing similar for 13+ to check maths and english for year 8. Good luck. They don't come with answers though. Tricky ones are Perse, reigate and Colfes school, good practice.
