GL Assessment-style 11+ Mock Exams 2020 (Buckinghamshire) with Dynamic Video Tuition™

Skip to Mock Exam Options

11+ Mock Exams

In 2020, SDE’s GL Assessment-style 11+ Mock Exams (with Dynamic Video Tuition) for the Buckinghamshire 11+ tests take place at the following locations:

  • Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire
  • Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire
  • Chalfont St. Peter, Buckinghamshire
  • High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire
  • Slough/Langley, Berkshire

The test papers for these Sessions have been written by Susan Daughtrey M.Ed, the tutor and author, to help students who are preparing to write the GL Assessment® Verbal Reasoning, Maths and Non-Verbal Reasoning Buckinghamshire 11+ tests.

Dynamic Video Tuition

All of our 2020 GL Assessment-style 11+ Mock Exams include our unique and innovative Dynamic Video Tuition™ service.

Dynamic Video Tuition is a significant ongoing video production and IT project, which involved the creation of more than 3000 short video tutorials, each typically 1-4 minutes in length, together with an online video streaming platform, so the video tutorials can be watched by you and your child from home.  There is a video tutorial for every question on our series of six Bucks GL-style (as well as many of our other exam formats, including CEM-style and GL-style exams in other areas).

Dynamic Video Tuition is designed to target your child’s individual learning needs.  For each question your child answers incorrectly on the tests, with Dynamic Video Tuition™, our bespoke online software (accessed via your secure parent login to the SDE website) will provide you with access to a data field and a link to a short video, devised and narrated by Susan Daughtrey M.Ed, which includes:

  • The test question number;
  • Your child’s actual wrong answer option;
  • A link to a video tutorial, which can be streamed from home, which includes the following:
    • The test question number, actual test question and multiple-choice answer options that appeared on the actual question paper;
    • Where relevant (e.g for VR questions), an explanation of the technique or method that Susan Daughtrey M.Ed recommends your child uses to answer the question, devised and narrated by Susan Daughtrey M.Ed;
    • Where relevant (e.g for Maths questions), working out is shown on screen in a step-by-step fashion, with Susan Daughtrey M.Ed talking your child through the process he/she should have followed to answer the question correctly; and
    • Finally, the correct answer is shown on screen.

You can pause, rewind and re-watch the video tutorials provided as part of the feedback as many times as you like, until the 11+ in September 2020.

Dynamic Video Tuition has been devised with the specific objectives of giving your child the opportunity to: (a) learn from their mistakes; and (b) improve future exam performance.  This is a unique and innovative resource, which responds to your child’s individual learning requirements by identifying only the questions your child answered incorrectly on the test papers and addressing those wrongly answered questions through the deployment of a video tutorial.  We are not aware of any similar service being available in the 11+ market.

What other feedback can I expect after each Session?

Feedback is provided via a secure parent login on the SDE website.

This feedback includes:

  • A Letter to Parents providing a detailed description of the type of questions which appeared on the test papers, a Target Mark™ and lists of the more complex vocabulary from the actual test papers;
  • A Record Table™ which shows your child’s score in each element of the test papers, a total score for each test and a combined score for the two tests – next to your child’s scores, we also provide the group average score to help you identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses, relative to the other candidates (there are usually many other students to compare your child’s results to as the Sessions are extremely popular);
  • An anonymised List of Scores achieved by other students who have written the same test papers – this will not only enable you to rank your child within the group, but also to see how much improvement is required to progress.
  • Access to our unique and innovative Dynamic Video Tuition™ service detailed above.

How many Sessions do you offer?

In each location there are 6 Sessions: Sessions A – F.

The test papers at each Session are unique (i.e. no repeat questions).

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 GL Assessment 11+ Buckinghamshire tests.  To this end, in each location our GL Assessment-style 11+ Mock Exams (for Buckinghamshire 11+ candidates) include the following features:

  • Two test papers:
    • Test Paper 1 is a ‘verbal reasoning’ test comprising (i) comprehension; (ii) cloze (multiple choice, GL-style); (iii) technical English (proof reading and/or jumbled sentences); (and (iv) verbal reasoning questions.
    • Test paper 2 is a ‘non-verbal reasoning (including spatial reasoning)’ and ‘maths’ test.
  • Each test contains 45 minutes of questions.
  • The tests are multiple choice with a question paper and separate multiple-choice answer sheet.
  • The tests are administered using audio administration and the test papers contain separately timed sections.
  • Prior to each timed Section within the test paper, the Instructions for the questions in that Section and an Example of each type of question are presented (and read out audibly by the audio administration) and there is then a short period to attempt several Practice questions, the answers to which are subsequently read out by the audio administration.
  • Each of the two test papers has a weighting of 50%. Verbal reasoning (including comprehension, cloze, technical English (proof reading and/or jumbled sentences) and verbal reasoning questions) carry half of the total marks and NVR/spatial reasoning and Maths each attract one quarter of the total marks.

Each year we ask our students to submit a detailed online feedback form, sent out on the day of the real 11+ test, seeking information about the content, timing and administration of the real GL Assessment Buckinghamshire 11+ tests.  This request is sent to over 600 students.  We are very grateful for the considerable number of submissions we receive, which has enabled us to establish a very detailed understanding of the content of the 2018 and 2019 Buckinghamshire GL Assessment 11+ tests.  Where necessary, our test papers are updated to reflect any comments we receive, although the overriding sentiment is that the students find our test papers are very similar to the real Bucks 11+ tests (it is often said that the SDE mock exams are a little bit harder than the real Bucks 11+ exam – which we are always very pleased to hear).

Cost

The ‘series’ of six GL-style 11+ Mock Exam Sessions have been carefully timed to enable you to monitor your child’s progress and to give your child plenty of test paper practice in a formal exam room environment in the months leading up to the real 11+ tests.  With our Dynamic Video Tuition service, your child is given the opportunity to learn from their mistakes and to improve future exam performance.  Most parents opt for all 6 mock exams, which is our best value package and also attracts a further Early Booking Discount for those who are able to plan well in advance (all tests dates can be amended free of charge – please see below).
