Skip to Mock Exam Venues and Dates

11+ Mock Exams

In 2021, SDE’s GL Assessment-style 11+ Mock Exams (with Susan Daughtrey 11+ Dynamic Video Tuition) for the Buckinghamshire 11+ tests take place at the following locations:

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

How many Sessions do you offer?

In each location there are seven Sessions:  Sessions A – G.

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: (a) comprehension; (b) cloze (multiple choice, GL-style); (c) technical English (proof reading and/or scrambled sentences); and (g) verbal reasoning questions (typically from the ’21 Types’ of verbal reasoning question);
    • Test paper 2 comprises: non-verbal reasoning (including spatial reasoning) sections (of which there are usually four short sections) and a maths section.
  • 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 scrambled 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 many hundreds of children.  We are very grateful for the considerable number of submissions we receive, which have enabled us to establish a very detailed understanding of the content of the 2018, 2019 and 2020 Buckinghamshire GL Assessment 11+ tests.  We are pleased to report that 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 real Bucks GL 11+ tests are a bit easier than the SDE 11+ Mock Exams, which we are always very pleased to hear!).

What is Susan Daughtrey 11+ Dynamic Video Tuition®?

All SDE 2021 GL Assessment-style 11+ Mock Exams include the unique and innovative Susan Daughtrey 11+ Dynamic Video Tuition® service as standard.

Susan Daughtrey 11+ Dynamic Video Tuition® is a significant video production and IT project, involving 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 at home.  We have created a video tutorial for every question on our series of seven Bucks GL-style 11+ Mock Exams (as well as many of our other exam formats, including for the SDE CEM-style and GL-style 11+ Mock Exam test papers used in other areas).

Susan Daughtrey 11+ Dynamic Video Tuition® is designed to target your child’s individual learning needs.  For each question your child answers incorrectly on the tests our bespoke online software (accessed via your secure parent login to the SDE website) will provide you with access to:

  • Your child’s wrong answer selection;
  • A link to a short video tutorial, devised and narrated by Susan Daughtrey M.Ed, which can be streamed from home and which includes the following:
    • The test question number, test question and multiple-choice answer options that appeared on the question paper;
    • Where relevant (e.g for VR questions), an explanation of the technique or method that Susan Daughtrey recommends your child uses to answer the question;
    • Where relevant (e.g for Maths questions), working out is shown on screen in a step-by-step fashion, with Susan Daughtrey explaining the process she recommends your child should follow 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 SDE 11+ Mock Exam feedback as many times as you like, until the 11+ exams in September 2021.

Susan Daughtrey 11+ 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.

This is simply a fantastic way to revise with your child and was described by one very satisfied parent, as a “game-changer”.

What other feedback can I expect after each Session?

Feedback is provided via a secure parent login to 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);
    • Group List of Scores – this list contains the anonymised scores of the students attending the 11+ Mock Exam Session on the same weekend and usually at the same venue as your child (giving you the most “like-for-like” comparison available as the test papers were written in the same circumstances);
    • All Time Lists of Scores – these lists contain the scores of all students who have ever written each set of test papers and is probably the most comprehensive 11+ Mock Exam comparative data available anywhere;
    • Access to the unique and innovative Susan Daughtrey 11+ Dynamic Video Tuition® service detailed above, so you can see exactly which questions your child answered incorrectly and your child has the benefit of Susan Daughtrey’s explanation of how best to answer the question.
