First time posting for me and I know there's a lot of experience on this board, so I hope you'll be able to advise me.
Bright daughter currently year 5. Have been advised she is suitable to sit 11+ entrance exam by her teacher.
I have read a lot of these threads and have become confused already as most of you are referring to things which I have never even heard of, and also I believe the system may be slightly different (from what I've read anyhow - lol) 'down south' to how it is here in North Yorkshire.
I have spoken to the local education office and they advise there are two types of test - Verbal English and Non-Verbal maths. Does this sound right or have I misunderstood?
They did say NFER 11+ books were the ones closest to the test they use (multiple choice), so I have been Googling them already.
I asked her class teacher about a tutor but she said she was bright enough and didn't need one - but I still worry!!!!
This is something daughter wants to do, which hopefully will make it easier on all of us
but your guidance would be greatly appreciated.
I guess what I'm really asking is, have I understood properly what the lea office told me and is there anything else I should do/know/worry about?
Your help is much appreciated already, thanks
