Just wanted to reiterate ...
-KEGS does not have a catchment area.
-There is no pass mark for 11+ - Places awarded to top 112 boys who named KEGS (1st) on their CAF.
-11+ for KEGS (Essex) includes maths, english & verbal reasoning questions.
Check out the verbal reasoning questions as they make up 50% of the exam score. There are 21 verbal reasoning types & if your son grasps these fairly quickly I would definately give it a go.
Y-o-u-t-u-b-e has video examples of all the verbal reasoning types... they were a god send!
- Finally my son secured a place at KEGS this year & we live in the Romford area
HTH... Good luck.
