Hi, I have been reading on these forums that people in some areas have found out what topics the 11+ will be on in September 2010 (VR, Maths etc)

Does anyone know what they will be for children in Lincolnshire?? My son is hoping to go to QEHS in Gainsborough if he passes.

thanks in advance for your help

Are these any help? They are the final determined admissions policies for 2011-2012

i emailed the lincolnshire grammar schools through the first link that was put on here and got the following reply:

Thank you for your email.

The Lincolnshire Grammar Schools (with the exception of Caistor) all sit the same 11+ test. Each year it is made up of 2 papers which are sat a week apart. The first paper is the verbal reasoning paper and the second is the non-verbal reasoning paper. There is no maths paper.
The tests used are produced by NFER (also known as gl assessment) and we use the standard format and not the multiple choice.

I hope this information is helpful.
Kind Regards

The type and format of the tests does not change year to year. The last change was in the tests for 2007 entry (taken Autumn 2006) when they changed from two VR tests to one VR and one NVR test.

A little more about the format of the tests is available on the following link:

There is also plenty of advice about practice and what people have found useful on the Lincolnshire thread.

Good luck.
