The exams in April, May and June were unable to proceed. Parents were given the option to rebook or offered a full refund. The vast majority of refunds were issued within 1-2 business days.
  • Each SDE 11+ Mock Exam Session was limited to 15 candidates.
  • There were special hygiene measures (such as hand washing) at Registration.
  • PPE was made available free of charge at the Registration Desk for staff and students. Staff were required to wear a mask if they need to move within 2 metres of others. In line with DfE Guidance for 9-10 year old children, candidates were not required to wear masks but were welcome to do so.
  • Desks and chairs were disinfected at the beginning of the day and between each use.
  • All exam papers and answer sheets were placed on the candidate’s desk before they entered the Exam Hall or classroom.
  • Candidates were sat at least 2 metres apart in the Exam Hall or classroom (an enhanced measure taken by SDE over and above the requirements of the Government Guidance at the time). Please see our example Tuition Centre diagram and Tuition Centre photos (SDE Burkes Court, Beaconsfield).
  • We maintained records of the seating positions of candidates and staff at each exam and kept these for at least four weeks to assist with Track and Trace.
Comprehensive details of the steps we took to keep everyone safe at the SDE 11+ Mock Exams were seen by the policy team at the DfE who are responsible for Out of School Settings, who commented that the plans “seem[ed] very sensible”.
While we hope for a ‘return to normality’ this year, we are resigned to the fact that special measures are highly likely to be necessary. The exact arrangements will depend on the circumstances nearer to the time and the latest Government Guidance to the Out of School Sector. At the present time, all SDE 11+ Mock Exam ‘bubbles’ are being limited to 15 candidates and accommodation has been booked so that we can adhere to 2 metres distancing between candidates while the children are writing their tests. It may be possible to relax these arrangements if the pandemic subsides. As well as being provide with access to comparative data for the children attending the Session with your child, you will also be able to access our All Time Lists of Scores which include the results of all candidates who have written the same test papers in past years. The All Time Lists of Scores are likely to contain the most comprehensive and reliable 11+ Mock Exam comparative data available.

11+ Mock Exams for Maths / Verbal Reasoning (GL Assessment-style) and English 11+ candidates

Skip to Mock Exam Dates and Venues
In 2021, SDE’s 11+ Mock Exams for Maths and Verbal Reasoning (GL-style) and English (reading comprehension and writing – standard version) 11+ candidates take place at The Latymer School.

Who can attend?

The test papers have been written by Susan Daughtrey M.Ed, the tutor and author, to help students who are preparing to write the GL Assessment® multiple-choice Maths / Verbal Reasoning 11+ test (60 mins) and the separate standard version English 11+ test, comprising reading comprehension and writing and which is normally prepared in-house by The Latymer School (60 mins).

How many Sessions do you offer?

There are three Sessions held at The Latymer School, Haselbury Road, Edmonton, N9 9TN.

Each SDE 11+ Mock Exam Session comprises a multiple-choice Maths and Verbal Reasoning 11+ test (GL Assessment-style) (60 mins) and English test (comprising reading comprehension and writing in the standard format – i.e not multiple choice) (60 mins).  The two papers are separated by a short break.  Answers to the Maths and Verbal Reasoning test are recorded by the student on a separate multiple-choice answer sheet.  The English test is divided into two 30 minute Sections, the first Section is reading comprehension and the final Section, is writing.

The Sessions have been carefully timed to coincide with your child’s final preparation for the multiple-choice GL Assessment® Maths and Verbal Reasoning test and the standard version English test for entry to The Latymer School.

What is the agenda for each session?

At each Session we will emulate, as far as reasonably practicable, your child’s most likely experience on the day of the real Maths / Verbal Reasoning and English 11+ tests for entrance to The Latymer School.

What other features are there?

  • SDE’s test papers contain questions which Susan Daughtrey expects to be of a similar style and level of difficulty to the questions on the ‘real’ GL Assessment® Maths and Verbal Reasoning 11+ test and the separate standard version English 11+ test which is written by the school;
  • The venue has been carefully appraised by SDE and found to be suitable for 11+ mock exams;
  • The venue features free off-street parking;
  • As part of the feedback, parents will receive a marked copy of their child’s test papers (and separate multiple choice answer sheet for the Maths and Verbal Reasoning test) and a list of the correct answers; and
  • The English test is marked by one of the SDE 11+ Course tutors who is responsible for three groups of Year 5 students attending the SDE 11+ Course in Buckinghamshire.  As well as working for SDE, at her North London school she is the Head of English and Assistant Headteacher.  As well as receiving a breakdown of the results, you will also be sent a scanned copy of the marked English test paper with some brief comments on the written section.  You will also receive a mark scheme for the English comprehension, against which you can compare your child’s responses.  The same teacher marks all of the English scripts, which means the All Time List of Scores show the results of other students who have been assessed consistently throughout the year.
