This test is utilized to evaluate the suitability of prospective students for admission to the school and is adopted by the majority, though not all, of the 35 wholly selective and 4 partially selective grammar schools in the region.

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.
