The London 11+ Consortium has gone to great lengths to make the assessment process as simple as possible. They have eliminated lengthy English and Math papers, focusing on cognitive ability assessment. The consortium makes use of three complementary approaches.
- Bespoke cognitive tests. 75 minutes consisting of Maths, Verbal and Non-verbal reasoning. These are all multiple choice questions. The test provider is CEM and therefore these questions are very hard to get hold of.
- Common reference form. Providing wider contextual information on attitudes, character and comments on academic performance.
- An interview experience. This is individual to each senior school. In the interview process, there will be a focus on the candidate’s aptitude, skills and intellectual perceptiveness

London Consortium schools
With a shared interest in making the admissions process simple and effective, they manage this process collectively. As stated by them on London 11+ Consortium website:
“With concern for the pressure which the current 11+ application system places on young children and for the damage to learning which relentless ‘teaching to the test’ produces, we seek to simplify the process and reduce the number of examinations which they sit, whilst providing a better tool of assessment to elicit the information which can match candidates to schools best fitting their profile.”
