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 Slough Consortium 11+ candidates

Skip to Mock Exam Venues and Dates

**There have been some changes to the Slough Consortium 11+ tests for 2023 so please read the below information carefully.**
It is not yet known whether Kendrick and the Slough Consortium will continue to use the same test provider and format so, for Kendrick 11+ Mock Exams, please refer to our separate page here.


In 2023, SDE’s 11+ Mock Exams for Slough Consortium Candidates are taking place in the following location:

  • East Berkshire College, Langley

The test papers for these Sessions will be written by Susan Daughtrey Education to help students who are preparing to write the new Slough Consortium tests being used in 2023.


A note on the new Slough Consortium 11+ tests for 2023 (for admission Sept 2024)

It was announced earlier this year that CEM, who provided the Berkshire 11+ between 2014 and 2022, will no longer be providing paper-based tests from 2023.  The Slough Consortium of Grammar Schools have issued a statement acknowledging this but have not confirmed the new test provider or format for 2023, and neither have they shared a timeline as to when this information may be shared.  A copy of this statement can be found on each of the grammar schools’ websites.

SDE have decided to open booking for their 2023 11+ Mock Exams for Slough Consortium candidates, on the basis that we are highly likely to be well placed to respond to the new Slough Consortium 11+ test requirements whatever they may be, already successfully running 11+ Mock Exams in eight different formats.


Can I combine these Mock Exams with other Mock Exams run at other venues?

Until the new format for the 2023 11+ tests is announced, we strongly discourage booking Mock Exams of different styles with the same Session letter.  For example, we would advise against booking both Session A for Slough Consortium candidates and Session A for Buckinghamshire or Kendrick candidates.  Instead, we would suggest booking one Session A, and one of our other Session letters, B-G.

The reason for this is that, depending on the format of the new Slough Consortium 11+ test and when this information is released, it is possible SDE will draw questions from one of our existing sets of well-established Mock Exams or may reuse test papers elsewhere in the event Slough Consortium picks up an identical exam format.  Booking different Session letters across all of our Mock Exam styles will guarantee your child does not see the same questions twice.


How many Sessions do you offer?

There are seven Sessions:  Sessions A – G.

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

Most parents book all seven Sessions and use the SDE 11+ Mock Exams as part of their child’s final preparation for the 11+ exam.


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 Slough Consortium 11+ tests.  We will confirm the structure of each Session once the format for the 2023 tests has been released.


What other feedback can I expect after each Session?

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

This feedback includes  (at a minimum):

  • 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);

A huge amount of work goes into producing high quality 11+ Mock Exam Papers so please be aware that, in order to protect our intellectual property and to ensure each paper is previously unseen by the students attending the Session, we do not release full Mock Exam papers.


Cost

1 Session: £80
2 Sessions: £150 (£75 each, save £10)
3 Sessions: £210 (£70 each, save £30)
4 Sessions: £260 (£65 each, save £60)

To take advantage of the discounted rates on multiple exam bookings, you must book all tests for the same child and as a single Order.

You can combine these tests with Mock Exams that we run directly at other venues.  Simply add these tests to your Cart and continue shopping for SDE 11+ Mock Exam in other areas.


Terms and Conditions

All SDE 11+ Mock Exam Sessions are subject to our mock exam terms and conditions which you can view on the booking page.


Change of date / time / venue and cancellation

You can make changes to your booking free of charge by contacting the SDE Office, at least 72 hours before the Mock Exam takes place.

If you cancel your booking, we will apply a cancellation charge of £20 to help cover our card processing fees and administration costs.  Our fees will also be recalculated if you are cancelling part of a booking (e.g one test in a multiple booking).  Please refer to our Terms and Conditions for full details and worked examples.
