The Secondary Transfer Test in Buckinghamshire includes two test papers. The first paper includes comprehension, technical English and verbal reasoning questions. The second paper includes non-verbal reasoning, spatial reasoning, and maths questions. This will be the same each year, although the questions will be different. Children answer questions on separate answer sheets and at Maple, we will prepare them to work effectively in this manner.
Records show that children who attend two or more full mock exams approach the real test with minimum nerves and a clear understanding of how to deal with questions and timing. For more information and timelines go to the Bucks County council website.
All our of our 11+ exam papers are based on the Buckinghamshire Transfer test. In the real test, the qualifying score (STTS) of 121 or above. The STTS is calculated by age-standardising the three section scores and then adding them using the following weightings: verbal – 50%; mathematical – 25%; non-verbal – 25%.
GL Assessment tests candidates using a variety of different question types – the majority of which are not covered in local state schools. Free familiarisation materials are available on their website.
