For grammar schools in the UK, students must first sit an entry test known as “11+ admissions test” to be considered for entry. In most places in England, a child only needs to sit one test to be considered for the grammar schools in a particular area. For example, there is only one entry test across all of the Grammar school in Birmingham.

The entry test is composed of two exams, with each lasting 45 minutes. The Papers are split into multiple smaller sections and each sections are timed individually. These sections are: Verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning, reading comprehension and numerical ability.

Students should note that they will need to record their answers on separate answer sheets with most of the question being multiple choice.
