We are delighted to be able to offer the children of Skipton and the surrounding areas an authentic experience of sitting an 11 Plus examination. The mock examination is suitable for those children sitting the 11 Plus test for Ermysted’s Grammar School, Ripon Grammar School, Skipton Girls’ High School and Clitheroe Grammar School.
The papers have been written by a well established private company, with long-standing experience and in-depth knowledge of the subjects included in the 11 Plus examination papers. The papers are not available elsewhere locally.
The reasons for sitting a mock test are twofold: to highlight any difficulties posed by particular question types and to provide an authentic experience of formal examination conditions. Children of this age are not generally familiar with this. The examination will take place in a large examination hall and formal examination procedure will be adhered to.
The children will be able to take the test away with them at the end of the session, together with the mark scheme so that you will be able to see almost instantly where any weaknesses lie. These weaknesses can then be worked upon over the summer holidays.
Please note that the mark scheme which you will receive will indicate the raw score achieved on each paper. Unlike the real 11 Plus the marks will therefore NOT reflect age standardisation.
The mock examinations will take place at St Andrew’s Church Hall, Newmarket Street, Skipton.
