North London Girls’ School Consortium
This advice is now out of date. Please go to our new page on The London 11+ Consortium.
This is a group of schools which has gathered together to manage their own admissions arrangements. They have done this because it is easier for them and makes most sense for parents and children who often apply to more than one of these schools.

11 Plus Exam Procedures for Group 1 and Group 2 – North London Consortium
Group 1 and Group 2 have separate examinations but you can prepare for both in the same way.
Both areas will test for English and Maths and nothing else.
Consortium English 11 Plus tests. These contain sections on comprehension and writing. For the comprehension children can expect a classic text or something of similar complexity. They will be asked to write full answers although the odd question may be multiple choice. Answers should be written in full sentences. They will then get a writing section.
Consortium Maths 11 Plus tests. These contain a mix of questions which largely focus on the 11 Plus syllabus. Questions tend to be in standard form (not multiple choice). As with most Independent Schools there will be a number of questions towards the end of the paper which are more difficult. These questions will ask children to use their skills and logic to work their way through the question. The Maths in these questions is not complicated but children will need to be able to think on their feet to reach the correct solution. Schools can use the performance in these more difficult questions to help inform scholarship decisions.
