Visuteach provides interactive online GL Assessment style 11 plus spatial reasoning questions in our Spatial Reasoning membership package. Our online GL Assessment style Spatial Reasoning membership package costs £10 for one month or £30 for six months.

Spatial reasoning is a fairly new category of questions that forms part of the 11 plus Kent Test and the Bucks (Buckinghamshire) Secondary Transfer Test (formerly known as the 11 plus). Spatial reasoning questions did not appear in GL Assessment 11 plus papers or tests before 2015, and only appear in certain regions now (e.g. Kent, Lincolnshire and Buckinghamshire). That means that there are relatively fewer familiarisation materials available for this question type than some of the other 11 plus question types.

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

Visuteach’s spatial reasoning questions are similar to the figure recognition, hidden shape sample spatial reasoning questions in the Kent Test Familiarisation Booklet and the Bucks (Buckinghamshire) Secondary Transfer Test Familiarisation Booklet, although the Visuteach spatial reasoning questions are generally slightly more difficult. We have 90 figure recognition, hidden shapes spatial reasoning questions in our Spatial Reasoning membership package.

Untimed tests have answers immediately after each question, timed tests have answers at the end of the test.
