Sample 11+ Maths Questions

Maths is one of the principal subjects tested in the Bucks and Slough 11 Plus exams. Maths accounts for 25% of the total marks in the Bucks exam and 30% in the Slough Consortium exam.

The maths questions in the 11 Plus assess different skills. These are mental arithmetic (short maths), word problem solving (long maths) and statistics. Questions testing ability in statistics are presented in tables, graphs, diagrams, pictograms and charts.

Pupils may need to solve a maths problem based on a situation, concept or statistical analysis. In this type of question, children need to understand the question before they can solve it. As such, there can be an element of reading comprehension. Sometimes children are distracted by the situation or concept presented in the question. It may appear to them unrealistic or exaggerated. It is important to focus on the maths element rather than on the credibility of the question.

Beaconsfield School of Education specialises in preparation courses for the 11 Plus exam. The course is designed for students in Year 5 of Primary School. The 11+ course covers the three main areas of the 11 Plus - Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Maths. The 11 Plus lessons are taught on a One to One basis (private lessons). This enables the 11+ teacher to identify strengths and weaknesses and to focus on areas needing improvement.

The 11 Plus course starts in September and lasts for 3 terms. The 11+ lessons are 75 minutes long, so the pupils can practise and focus on 11+ exercises for an extended period. The teacher always sets homework after the lessons for completion by the following week.
