We believe that with 1 to 1.5 years of dedicated effort students will have the best chance of clearing their 11Plus exam. We have prepared a short video on ‘When’ to start 11Plus prep and ‘How’ to structure your child’s learning.

1) Standard Format : In this format the answers are to be written in the space provided.
2) Multiple Choice: Here the answer is to be selected from a list of provided options and marked in a separate sheet.
Most exams are 45 minutes in duration, there might be a single paper or two papers separated by a short break.
GL draws its questions from a GL Assessment question bank. This means that through regular practice the chances of a high score in the exam increase substantially.
