Mock Examinations

During school closures, our popular Year 5 mock exams have moved to online. We use the Zoom software as our videoconferencing tool.  You will need to have this software downloaded onto the computer which you are using.  It can be downloaded (free) from To participate in the exam, your child will need access to a laptop or desktop computer.  An iPad or tablet would also work. They will need a quiet room to work in and if possible (but not essential), headphones.  We provide pupils with a paper copy of the test to work from.

We aim to structure the exam to give pupils as realistic experience as possible. The exam will last approximately 3 hours (including 2 papers of 50 minutes and a break). Using the Zoom software means that the children will be able to see the exam leader and will be taken through the practice questions and given the time reminders, just like they would if they were sitting the exam at our centre.  On completion of the exam, answer sheets are scanned back to us and we then write a report with a breakdown of scores.


Young Education Services holds regular 11+ mock exams for students who are being entered for exams for independent and grammar schools. They are open to the public as well as current students.

An 11+ mock exam is an essential part of 11+ preparation. It offers candidates a chance to benefit from the experience of taking an exam with peers. In addition, the practice of sitting a timed exam and obtaining positive results is encouraging for many of the students. The results allow parents to gauge how well a child is performing and highlight areas for further study.

It is good practice for students to have timed tests regularly under exam conditions, particularly if they are not used to doing them in school.
