11+ - any knowledge?

Quick question for anyone (teachers, parents of older children) who knows anything about 11+.

How hard is it?

DD is going back into Y3, so obviously we have a fair while before we need to think about secondary education. However, the fact of having a child going into the juniors has come as a bit of a shock to me and reminded me how quickly the time goes by.

She's been assessed as level 3 in everything in her KS1 SATS. She is a mature, sensible little body and we do a lot of broader educational things outside of school time, so it bodes well for being a well-rounded individual.

But is that enough?

Any insight that anyone can give me would be really interesting.

how hard it is to get into selective schools depends what part of the country you're in.
I suggest you look at the fourm on the elevenplusexams website.

In this area they test only on verbal and non-verbal reasoning which is way different to anything they do in school
