11+ COURSE SUMMARY
The 11 Plus (also called the 11+ or Eleven Plus) is an exam taken by some school pupils shortly after they begin year 6. Most children will only be 10 years old when they take the test – the term “11Plus” refers to the fact that the test selects for schools with an entry point for children aged 11 or over.
At JEMS Tuition we prepare students for the 11+ using the best resources available in book form and online. We use individual learning plans and teach the required topics in small units and providing plenty of exam practice. 11+ tuition takes place at our Camden, Kentish Town & Holborn Centres.
WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
Since students sit the 11+ tests in the first term of Year 6 it is best to start the 11+ course at the beginning of Year 5. The 11+ course is very demanding but we can still take children on to this course as an alternative to our normal primary courses even if they are not going to an exam entry school.
11+ COURSE STRUCTURE
We have a clear programme of study that covers the 11 Plus material and ensures your child is ready for their exams. Our books and materials are tough and challenging but students enjoying completing them. They have clear diagrams with explanations and provide plenty of practice.
The content of the 11+ exam varies between different areas of the country but generally it will focus on a combination of the following four subjects:
Number Knowledge | Working with Numbers | Number Problems | Data Handling | Shape and Space | Units and Measures | Mixed Problems
Grammar | Punctuation | Spelling | Word Types Comprehension | Writing
Alphabet Positions | Making Words | Word Meanings | Maths & Sequences | Logic & Coding
Spotting Patters | Similarities & Differences | Paris, Series & Grids | Codes
Although the English and maths tests tend to follow the National Curriculum, the verbal and non-verbal reasoning tests are not school-based subjects and will not be taught as part of the curriculum in state schools. Therefore your child is likely to need additional support and practice to familiarise themselves with verbal and non-verbal reasoning exam question types.
HOMEWORK, ASSESSMENT & PROGRESS
At JEMS Tuition we cover all four subjects and provide around 90mins worth of homework every week from the student’s text book which reinforces the skills learnt in class. Our weekly homework & progress tracker ensures both you and your child are aware of their progress.
REWARD & ONLINE LEARNING
It’s important to keep students motivated to come to lessons on time and to complete class and homework to their best ability. We do this by rewarding them with ‘excellent’ stamps each week which they use to enter our Monthly Prize Raffle. We also have other competitions linked to our online learning program – Speed Skills.
