Hello all

My son is in Year 5 and we have done no prep work for the 11 plus yet. The school don't do anything either until the last half term.

Can anyone point me in the right direction, what do I need to do first?, what books/papers should I buy? etc. I won't be going down the tutor route so it will all be done at home with myself and my husband.

As I understand it from reading through this fantastic site is that Lincolnshire sit the NVR and VR tests, so no need to purchase the books/papers for Maths & English, is this right?

Thanks in advance :)

Hi Jetster and welcome to the forum - don't worry about feeling confused - by this time next year you will be an expert!!

Yes you are right Lincolnshire is VR and NVR only - some of the types and books are mentioned here:

Thank you, I've had a good read :)

Apologies to the mods, I had no idea I was advertising when asking about a certain make of book - sorry :(

Hello Jetser,

Here is a link to an old thread where there is a discussion of which practice papers people have found useful:

viewtopic.php?t=5540

and to the sticky above which tells you about the format and length and timing of the tests:

viewtopic.php?f=21&t=4525

You have plenty of time to prepare. Any further questions, do ask.

Hi Jester
My son is also in year 5 and taking 11+ this year. we are looking at Kings in Gratham as that is our catchment although he is extremely sporty so Carres may be an option as well.

Its good to have someone else in Lincs :)
