GL/NFER 11 Plus maths exam focus.

These tests have been around for ages and are well known. They focus on a mix of problem solving and calculation questions that won’t come as a surprise to a child who is doing well at Maths at school.

GL 11 Plus Maths do not go beyond the syllabus but children may find questions on topics that they may not have covered yet because the exam comes early in year six and exam papers cover the whole KS2 syllabus.

For these tests speed and accuracy are called for and children will need to develop these skills as well as the core knowledge needed to answer the questions.
