11+ Kent Test Details

If you wish to apply for a Grammar School in Kent, but outside the Medway boundaries, your child must sit the 11+ Kent test.

There are three papers:
  • English and Maths combined multiple choice (60 minutes)
  • Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning combined multiple choice (60 minutes)
  • English Creative Writing task (40 minutes, used only as a decision maker where marks are borderline)
The multiple choice tests are computer marked whilst the creative writing is hand marked. The scores are standardised, according to age, so that all children can be compared equally and the youngest are not at a disadvantage.
