The New 2015 Entry 11+ Kent Test

The format of the 11+ Kent Test (also known as a PESE (Procedure for Entry into Secondary Education) test) has changed from previous years. Kent County Council has released a familiarisation booklet for the new 11+ Kent Test (also known as which can be found at the following link Kent Test Familiarisation Booklet

The new 11+ Kent Test consists of two separate papers – a reasoning paper and a combined English/maths paper.

Reasoning Paper

The reasoning paper takes around 1 hour and is split into multiple-choice questions on verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning and spatial reasoning.

Verbal Reasoning

The two sample verbal reasoning questions in the Kent Test familiarisation booklet are from two of the 21 types of GL Assessment verbal reasoning questions which were part of the old Kent 11+ Test. The sample questions given in the Kent Test familiarisation booklet are of our Visuteach verbal reasoning type 5 (Find the Missing Letter) and type 21 (Find the Double Meaning). So it seems that it is worth preparing for verbal reasoning by familiarisation with all 21 types of verbal reasoning questions. Some of the 21 verbal reasoning question types deal with numbers rather than words, but the familiaisation booklet states that

“The Reasoning Test looks at how well you can work out and apply rules and relationships between words, numbers and shapes.”

so it is worth familiarising yourself with verbal reasoning number questions as well as word questions.

We sell 24 verbal reasoning papers containing 1920 questions. Papers 1-12 contain questions from our types 1-15, and papers 13-24 contain questions from all of the 21 types. Each paper does not contain questions from each of the 15 or 21 types, so it is necessary to buy more than one paper to see all of the different types. We also sell an online interactive membership package for verbal reasoning which contains all of the 1920 VR questions, and arranges these questions by type.

Spatial Reasoning

Spatial reasoning is a new category of questions that was not tested for in previous Kent 11+ Tests. That means that there are no familiarisation materials available for this question type in the GL Assessment packs that can be bought in shops and online.

Spatial reasoning questions test how well you can manipulate shapes and space in your head. The spatial reasoning questions in the 11+ Kent Test are similar to some of the Figure Recognition spatial ability questions in the UK CAT4 test, which is a Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT test).

Visuteach’s spatial reasoning questions are similar to the sample spatial reasoning questions in the Kent Test familiarisation booklet, although the Visuteach spatial reasoning questions are generally slightly more difficult. We have 90 spatial reasoning questions in our Kent Reasoning membership package.

Non-verbal Reasoning

We currently sell one non-verbal reasoning paper which contains 60 NVR questions. These 60 questions are also available in our online Kent Reasoning membership package.

English/maths Paper

The combined English/maths paper takes around 1 hour.

English

The familiarisation booklet says that there will be some cloze style questions where there will be a sentence with a missing word or words and you will be asked to pick the best word to complete the sentence. These questions are similar to the cloze type questions in the GL Assessment packs which can be bought in shops and online. These cloze type questions are different from the cloze questions in CEM exams because the GL Assessment cloze questions (as given in the sample in the familiarisation booklet) concentrate more on correct word usage and grammatical correctness rather than on pure vocabulary, and the vocabulary is easier than that found in CEM exams.

The familiarisation booklet says that there will be other questions where you will be asked to spot the mistake in a sentence. No examples are given, but we think these questions may be similar to the punctuation and spelling questions that can be found in the GL Assessment packs which can be bought in shops and online (however, we do not know for certain).

There will also be a comprehension section where you will be asked to read a passsage and answer questions on that passage.
This looks similar to the comprehension type questions in the GL Assessment packs which can be bought in shops and online, except that we expect that the comprehension passage will probably be shorter than some of the comprehension passages (of approx 1000 words) that are found in most of the passages in the GL packs and that there will be fewer questions on the passages than in most of the papers in the GL packs, because the new combined English/maths paper has to test for maths as well as English within the 1 hour approx time limit. One of the sample questions in the familiarisation booklet is a word “closest in meaning” question which is a synonym type question.

Visuteach’s online Kent English and maths packages contain questions similar to those required for the English part of the Kent Test.

Maths

The maths questions in the familiarisation booklet are similar to the maths questions in the GL Assessment packs which can be bought in shops and online.

Visuteach’s online Kent English and maths packages and our online GL maths package contain questions similar to those required for the maths part of the Kent Test.

GL Assessment Style Sample Non-Verbal Reasoning (NVR) Test

The five sample non-verbal reasoning questions are given below. Scroll down further to see the answers and explanations.

 


11 Plus Non-Verbal Reasoning Exam Question 1

The first shape or pattern is to the second shape or pattern as the third shape or pattern is to which one of the five on the right?


11 Plus Non-Verbal Reasoning Exam Question 2

Which one of the five boxes on the right completes the empty box on the left?


11 Plus Non-Verbal Reasoning Exam Question 3

Which one of the five boxes on the right completes the empty box on the left?


11 Plus Non-Verbal Reasoning Exam Question 4

Which one of the five codes on the right goes with the shape or pattern to the left of the codes?


11 Plus Non-Verbal Reasoning Exam Question 5

Which one of the five shapes or patterns on the right is most like the two on the left?


Answers

11 Plus Non-Verbal Reasoning Exam Question 1

The first shape or pattern is to the second shape or pattern as the third shape or pattern is to which one of the five on the right?

Answer : c

To get to the second pattern from the first pattern, the middle shape of the top row of the first pattern and the shape underneath it are flipped to the right. Then the first and third shapes of the top row reverse their outlines (i.e. the solid lines become dashed and the dashed lines become solid). Applying the same operations to the third pattern results in answer c.


11 Plus Non-Verbal Reasoning Exam Question 2

Which one of the five boxes on the right completes the empty box on the left?

Answer : d

Within a row, each box contains two diagonally placed circles, the bottom one white and the top one black. These circles change their diagonal orientation between boxes (i.e. changing from top left, bottom right to bottom left, top right). Each box also contains a symbol at the bottom which alternates between white and black. Within each row, each box also contains a pattern which appears once, twice or three times, and the thickness of the pattern varies from thin to medium to thick between boxes. The empty box must therefore contain the pattern in d.


11 Plus Non-Verbal Reasoning Exam Question 3

Which one of the five boxes on the right completes the empty box on the left?

Answer : b

As we move between boxes from left to right, the shape with the diagonal stripes is removed from its current box. The diagonal stripes are then transferred to one of the other shapes (i.e. the shape changes its shading to a diagonal striped shading) and this shape then becomes the next shape to be removed. The empty box therefore contains the pattern in b.


11 Plus Non-Verbal Reasoning Exam Question 4

Which one of the five codes on the right goes with the shape or pattern to the left of the codes?

Answer : e

The first letter represents the direction of the pattern (C is upwards, with the triangle at the top, X is downwards, with the triangle at the bottom). The second letter represents the colour of the triangle (Y is white, H is black). The third letter represents the number of internal lines in the pattern (Z is 2, B is 3). The pattern to the left of the codes is in a downwards position (so its first letter is X), has a white triangle (so its second letter is Y) and has three internal lines (so its third letter is B). Therefore its code is XYB and the answer is e.


11 Plus Non-Verbal Reasoning Exam Question 5

Which one of the five shapes or patterns on the right is most like the two on the left?

Answer : c

Each of the two patterns on the left has a medium width rectangle which has two of its sides crossed by each of the other two rectangles and these two rectangles do not cross each other. Also one of the two rectangles must cross the medium width rectangle at right angles. The most like pattern is therefore c.
