Hi Everyone.
I'm new to forum and first time facing the 11+ test.
Can anyone help with materials to use for the 11+ preparation in Bucks for the next exam? My DS is in year 5, top sets in his school. I've got the GL assessment Papers but not sure what to start with :? . Also done the familiarisation material of GL with him. He got nearly 80% in all areas.
Maths and Verbal Reasoning are his strengths. Working on comprehension and vocabulary but do need help about English technical and Spatial reasoning..??
Can anyone please help me out..??
Thanks a million... :)

GL spatial reasoning normally includes paper folding (figure analysis) and hidden shapes. If possible, buy 10 minutes practice book and do one or 2 tests per day to find out any gaps in the knowledge and weak areas. NVR carries 25% weightage and it is crucial for the success in the 11+ test. It is too early to start the practice papers. For English technical , focus on KS2 Spelling, Punctuation, Grammar.
