11 Plus Forum – 11 Plus Exam help for Parents

Our 11+ Forum is different.

Use the menu on the left to find the area of the eleven plus forum you want to focus on.

The 11 Plus forum is here to help you find the answer to commonly asked questions as quickly as possible. We don’t believe current forums really enable quick or accurate answers. Current forums are great for chatting to other parents but often are either too slow, or become out of date or don’t produce the answer parents need.

Our 11 plus forum is designed for you to be able to get an answer to any 11 Plus questions you might have with the confidence that you are getting the right answer.

Over many years of working with all  the 11 Plus regions we have had to answer just about every and any question parents have had. What we have done is to collate those questions and answers by subject and by region so that you can find out the answer you want as quickly and accurately as possible. You’ll find all the core questions are answered (schools, exam dates, application dates, exam types, preparation issues) and we have also included sections on which materials parents are likely to find most useful in preparing for the 11 Plus tests.

Where will the forum take you?

The forum currently has answers to a whole host of questions already asked and answered so you have the opportunity to quickly get the information you need. The forum will sometimes direct you to pages which have the answers to your questions, for example:

Where can I find free 11 Plus papers?

What books would you recommend to use for 11 Plus preparation?

What happens if you have a question which has not been answered in the Eleven Plus forum?

If you have a question which has not been answered in the 11 Plus forum then please do ask, there’s no need to have a user name or password , just fill in the form and send it to us and we will email you back personally with the answer (more complicated answers may take a couple of days).

If you have a personalised question by all means send it to us. While we try and answer every question we reserve the right to focus only on those questions which are likely to be really useful to others who use the forum.

So go into the 11 Plus forum area you are interested in, then look at the question type areas that are relevant. If you have a question about the exam content, or key dates, or relevant practice materials then go into those sections on the main site and you should be able to find the answer you are looking for.


    If you have questions which we have not addressed in our forum pages, please feel free to submit them via the form provided below.
