This is the fifth part for the verbal reasoning component of the 11 plus examinations for grammar and selective entrance schools all across the UK. There are 40-42 (including CEM format) possible types of exercise that can turn up on these entrance exams, these are the first quarter. These methods are unique to me and I spent some years with real pupils developing them to the highest possible standard. This part (5) for exercises added to these tests from 2012 that has been created for exclusive online upload too. It includes- how to interpret timetables, maths problems, codes and letter patterns.
For the CEM 11+ guides please see parts 6 and 7 of our survival guide.
This section contains mathematical sequences and skills, short codes and vocabulary exercises.
This is for schools that use the NFER Nelson, Nelson Bond or Bond style 11+ verbal reasoning component ONLY. All these sections are/will be available in the shop. The answers are included, with some explanations.
For parents, tutors and pupils who'd like to try for grammar or other selective school, each page has a full and friendly explanation of what to do and what tricks and traps to avoid, with sample questions to try at the bottom of each page.
Twelve pages long and at a bargain price of £2 per section. This is the edited version as a copy with two small errors, of a type that do not feature in the lost of NFer errors, was accidentally uploaded (see below for more on this.). Anyone who bought that copy can have this version for free if they message me.
***Note that one or two typeos are always deliberately left in the NFer 11+ guides because they are notorious for having mistakes in their exams, one reason why many schools and LEAs are moving to CEM formats. Pupils need to know what it 'feels' like to find an error, to 'know' that examiners are fallible, how not to panic when they find an error as they will be awarded the mark anyway, and just to let the teacher/invigilator know. Parents/tutors: do have this explanation ready when your child/pupil attempts these tests. Errors are most common on maths and codes exercises.***
