Hello, my DD will be sitting 11+ this September. A friend of mine recommended me to send her practice some mock exams to give her a taster. Is it worth it? Not sure :? Help!!

I can't speak for everyone else, but in my opinion they are definitely worth it, it gives the child an idea of how to solve the questions in a given time in a somewhat unfamiliar environment.

Our DD will be sitting the exam this year too and we have found that the mock tests have enabled us to identify her weaknesses in certain areas.

Let me know if you need details of centres where mock tests are carried out.........

Good luck.

Which exams are you sitting in September? Probably best to post in your region. DG

Depends on the schools you are going for and the type of exams they have. NENA, I know is from Reading and targeting Berks Consortium so CEM.

Hi.

I am new to the forum but saw your questions and comments about the mock 11+ tests. I agree they are a fantastic way of familiarising the child with the whole process and makes it so much easier and calmer for them on the actual exam day.

My eldest son attends Wallington County Grammar School in the London Borough of Sutton and their PTFA have introduced mock familiarisation tests this year for boys and girls who are sitting 11+ later this year. There are two papers in English and Maths. Check out their PTFA website for details.

Best of luck!

This is the tenth year I think of the Sutton Mocks as my dd did them six years ago and they had been running some time then. If you search on Sutton mocks you will see lots of threads about them. A cohort of three thousands and marks all published under code numbers. A dd I know had a panic in the Sutton mock A and then had another go at Sutton Mock B, did a lot better then got DAO. Latymer HBS, Habs and NLCS! DG
