The exam format is as follows:

Section 1: A one-hour examination gauging students' reasoning abilities. Comprising shorter segments, the test assesses Verbal Reasoning, Spatial Reasoning, and Non-Verbal Reasoning.

Section 2: A one-hour examination evaluating proficiency in English and Maths.

Section 3: A 40-minute writing task, including 10 minutes of preparation time. Although the writing task is not scored for the 11 Plus exam, it may serve as supporting evidence in borderline cases.

Why Progress Academy for 
Borden Grammar School
Extraordinary Online coaching

My son has joined the Progress Academy just a year before his 11 plus exams. Initially, we were not sure how an Online tuition would suit him and get through his exams. But Progress Academy's coaching and commitment towards their students are tremendous. Every child gets individual attention and care. My son felt the class very interesting and engaging. As a parent, we saw the improvement in him and gained confidence. As a result, my son has cleared his 11 plus with flying marks. Thanks to the tutor and the team behind him for their hard work. - Vidhya Vijay
