Non-Verbal Reasoning

Both the GL Assessment® 11 Plus in Buckinghamshire and the CEM 11 Plus in Berkshire include Non-Verbal Reasoning questions. The Bucks 11+ also includes Spatial Reasoning. A strong performance in this part of the 11+ can make a significant difference to a pupil's overall marks.

To score well in this section, it is important for children to familiarise themselves with the many different question types they may encounter.

Initially, children can find this challenging. However, "practice makes perfect" can certainly be applied to Non-Verbal Reasoning and Spatial Reasoning. It also helps if the child enjoys the challenge of this type of exercise, and many children do.

The focus of Non-Verbal Reasoning questions is on relationships between shapes and patterns, rather than on words or numerals. The questions test the ability to make logical deductions based on mathematical concepts. These concepts include shape, size, quantity, rotation, angle, direction, pattern, shading and orientation. In Spatial Reasoning questions, the children are asked to picture a shape in their head and move it around.

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), enabling the 11+ teacher to identify strengths and weaknesses and to focus on weaker areas needing improvement.

The BSE Beaconsfield 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 and this is an important part of the 11 Plus course.
