A question we get asked a lot is “what score do I need to get to pass the Eleven Plus exam?” The easy answer to that one is “it depends.”
The eleven plus exam uses standardised scores. This means the minimum pass mark is determined based on all collected results for that year, then adjusted depending on how many people sat the test and how well everybody performed across the board. One the answers have been standardised it is then possible to set a benchmark for all results. You can read more about the standardisation process here.
There’s no such thing as a strict pass mark but you need to be scoring in the high nineties to give yourself the best chance possible. Near the time of the exam your sample tests need to be at or near 100% every time.
Try it for yourself – are you able to score over 90% in one of our sample tests? Watch out for the time limit!
