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.

“The real 11+ exams will not be taking place online and will not be sat at home. We are passionate about giving every 11+ candidate the opportunity to practice for their real 11+ exams in a realistic Exam Hall environment, while taking all the necessary precautions to keep the children and staff safe when attending SDE during the pandemic.”

James Daughtrey, Managing Partner

The SDE 11+ Mock Exams were able to take place during the July to October 2020 period. We adopted the following measures to help keep everyone as safe as possible when attending SDE:

  • Each SDE 11+ Mock Exam 'bubble' 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 needed 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.
  • Candidates were sat at least 2 metres apart in the Exam Hall (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 & 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”.

Parents were sent full details of the measures, and the instructions they needed to follow, the day prior to each 11+ Mock Exam.

While we hope for a ‘return to normality’ this year, we are planning on the basis that special measures will continue to be necessary (particularly as there are no current plans to vaccinate under 18s). The exact arrangements for the SDE 11+ Mock Exams will depend on the circumstances nearer to the time and the latest applicable Government Guidance. At the current time, it is expected that all SDE 11+ Mock Exams will be able to proceed as scheduled. We envisage continuing with special hygiene measures such as hand washing or hand sanitisation at Registration. We are also planning capacity based on a minimum 2 metre distance between each candidate in the exam room. You will be able to access our Covid-19 secure policy documents via your Hall Pass (generated automatically when you make a booking with SDE) and copies of the latest versions will be emailed to all parents the day prior to each SDE 11+ Mock Exam.

11+ Mock Exams – SW Herts

Skip to Mock Exam Venues and Dates
SW Herts 11+ Mock Verbal Reasoning (GL Assessment-style, multiple-choice) and Maths (GL Assessment-style, multiple-choice) test sessions (reflecting changes to the 2019 SW Herts tests): test papers written by Susan Daughtrey M.Ed. specifically for SW Herts ‘Consortium School’ 11+ candidates, September 2021.

Who can attend?

The sessions are open to all Year 5 SW Herts 11+ candidates (September 2021), not just to the students enrolled on SDE’s 11+ courses.

What features are included?

The Sessions present an opportunity for your child to write mock 11+ Verbal Reasoning and Maths test papers (both GL Assessment-style, multiple choice) under examination conditions. Each Session lasts two and a half hours.

  • The test papers have all been written by Susan Daughtrey M.Ed, the 11+ tutor and author – Susan’s test papers are as close as possible to the “real” SW Herts 11+ tests and have been written specifically for 2021 SW Herts 11+ candidates;
  • The mock exam test papers are unpublished and should not have been seen by your child prior to the test;
  • The Maths test comprises 50 questions in 50 minutes;
  • The Verbal Reasoning test comprises 80 questions in 50 minutes;
  • For each test there is a question booklet and separate multiple-choice answer sheet;
  • Candidates are permitted to write all of their working out on the question booklet (as they are likely to be able to do in real SW Herts 11+ tests, rather than being provided with rough paper for working out);
  • After the Session you will be provided with a List of Scores (anonymised) so you can see how your child has performed relative to the other students at the Session;
  • The test paper, your child’s marked answer sheet and lists of the correct answers will also be returned to you within a few days of the tests so you can review the tests and your child’s answers at home, together with your child.
