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.

In 2022, SDE’s Maths/English 11+ Mock Exams (for Surrey and Sutton 11+ candidates) are taking place in Epsom, Surrey.

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 Surrey and Sutton 11+ Stage One (Selective Eligibility Test, multiple-choice) and Stage Two (standard version) Maths and English 11+ entrance exams.

How many sessions do you offer?

There will be 6 sessions held at Epsom College: Sessions A-F.

Sessions A-E comprise multiple-choice Maths and English 11+ Mock Exams which are separated by a short break.  Sessions A-E are designed to be the equivalent of Stage One of the real 11+ Surrey and Sutton multiple-choice Maths and English tests (SET).  

Session F comprises standard version Maths and English 11+ Mock Exams which are also separated by a short break.  Session F is designed to be the equivalent of Stage Two of the real Surrey and Sutton 11+ entrance tests.

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 11+ tests.

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’ Stage 1 Selective Eligibility Test and the Stage 2 standard-version tests;
  • Students are encouraged to write their working out on the actual question papers as they will be permitted to write their working out on the real 11+ test papers;
  • At Sessions A-E, students are instructed to record all their answers on the separate multiple-choice answer sheet (Session F is ‘standard version’ tests where students write their answers on the test papers);
  • For Sessions A-E, the answer sheets are marked accurately and quickly using electronic scanning technology (known as ‘Optical Mark Recognition’ or ‘OMR’) – this enables us to disseminate the results quickly after the test;
  • All venues have been carefully appraised by SDE and found to be suitable for 11+ mock exams; and
  • All venues feature plentiful free parking.

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 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;
    • The Creative Writing element in Session F will be marked by one of the SDE 11+ Course teachers who is responsible for preparing current SDE students for the 11+ exams. As well as receiving a breakdown of the results, you will also be sent a scanned copy of the written English paper with some brief comments from the teacher.

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. However, you will be given online access to any questions your child answers incorrectly in Sessions A-E to allow you to identify and work on their weak areas. For Session F you will receive a copy of your child’s written answers.
