English and Verbal Reasoning

Course Introduction


The 11+ English exam is intended to gauge your child's proficiency across a range of academic areas. Grammar, capitalization and punctuation, comprehension, and spelling are the four areas of the 11+ English exam. The comprehension component has twenty-five multiple-choice questions that are based on the extract, but the grammar, capitalization, and spelling sections include fewer questions—between six and ten total. Your child's reading and comprehension skills will be evaluated on the English exam. Additionally, they will be required to use their understanding of 11+ SPaG and vocabulary (Spelling, Punctuation, and Grammar).

Verbal Reasoning

The 11+ Exam's verbal reasoning (VR) questions measure children's abilities in multiple areas. This portion evaluates the child's vocabulary, word-creation skills, and word-identification abilities. By linking letters with numbers and requiring students to figure out the codes for various letters and words, several verbal reasoning questions in the 11 Plus Verbal Reasoning Syllabus also put the child's capacity for problem-solving to the test. The ability to comprehend and grasp written texts is assessed on verbal reasoning tests. They are all constructed using the language you have learned to test your verbal comprehension, logic, and reasoning.

Our evening virtual classes run all the way through the school year including half-terms and bank holidays. Teachers use the platform to communicate live with students online for 2 hours- lesson a week and that is 8 hours a month. Weekly lessons involve targeting specific topics and learning how to resolve problems surrounding those subject areas.

There are no entry requirements for the course and we accept enrolments anytime during the school year, as we go through the full syllabus multiple times a year. This approach, makes sure that you are well prepared for any topic or question that comes your way. NERRG Global Academy encourages a greater appreciation for the learning process by placing it in a more understandable context. This leads to improvements in self-discipline, time-management, focus, goal orientation and motivation

Our subject-specialists are professional, energetic and up-to-date with the current demands of a changing curriculum and the various Examination Boards and they help students improve their subject based skills, time management and exam preparation techniques. They also provide productive lessons in a supportive and friendly environment and an uplifting attitude that encourages remarkable results. For those not so keen on participating in a group setting, we do offer one-to one sessions. They can be scheduled at a time most convenient to you and your tutor.

Our classes aim to resolve areas of confusion and bring your child up to a comfortable level which allows them to achieve vital academic goals. We do this by providing relevant materials to improve our student’s abilities effectively. They are made available to students after every lesson, including all notes produced in class. Every week, students receive homework which includes exam questions, and are expected to work within a topic studied in class to further support their online schooling. By incorporating timed exercises and mock exam questions, we help the students’ decrease the time it takes them to answer questions, which means that he will experience less stress and pressure when exam time comes. Our tutors keep track of all students' progress and make sure everyone is at the level they should be. We also help build confidence, make good progress, and cope better with exams while enjoying learning. Students will be able also to see and interact with their tutor in real time and in the comfort of your own home.

The passing score for the exam varies between exam boards, institutions, and years. The 11 Plus often has a pass rate of over 80%. Students who pass their 11 plus exams are then admitted to the grammar or private schools they applied for.

If a child attends a local government primary school, they can take the 11 Plus exam in one of their classes. If not, they might have to visit a test location at a nearby grammar school. Parents or caregivers must enroll their children in the exam by registering them, usually online. There is normally a deadline for registering, and an online form must be submitted. The details of the time limit for each grammar school are available on their websites.

In order to register students for the 11 Plus, grammar schools normally begin accepting registration applications in April or May and end them in either June or July. However, we recommend parents to double-check on the school's website or in person.

The test is then conducted in the first two weeks of September of the same year for the majority of grammar schools. Again, depending on the school, this date may differ, therefore it is highly recommended that you double verify. Typically, results are announced in the middle of October, and school selections are verified on March 1st of the following year.
