11 Plus Exam Birmingham

What is a school entry / 11 plus Exam?

Candidates will only need to sit one test to be considered for a place at a school that forms part of The Grammar Schools in Birmingham or Warwickshire Authority.

There are 2 exams, each lasting approximately 45 minutes. Papers will be divided into smaller individually timed sections that test:

  • Verbal ability
  • Non-verbal ability
  • Reading comprehension
  • Numerical ability

Candidates will record their answers on a separate answers sheet and most of the questions take a multiple choice format. Marks will be standardised to take account of differences in age and then added together.
