University College School 11+ Exam Style

  • The UCS 11+ Entrance Examination format
    • Since January 2020, the format of School 11+ Entrance Examination- which is taken here at UCS- is as follows.
    • English Examination – one hour 15 minutes. Time will be split between two sections, namely Reading Comprehension (45 minutes) and Creative Writing (30 minutes).
    • Maths Examination – one hour 15 minutes. There will be three sections; Multiple- Choice, Core Mathematics and Maths Problems. All questions will continue to cover the National Curriculum Mathematics topics.
  • Please note that school do not require candidates to sit a reasoning paper.
    • The format and content of school 11+ entrance examinations, which match National Curriculum requirements for the end of Key Stage 2,  ensure that all 11+ candidates are judged primarily on their performance in the core curriculum subjects of English and Maths which are taught daily in every school.
    • As in previous years, shortlisting for interview will be on the basis of performance in the Entrance Examinations as described above, and an academic reference from the current school. The Interview Day itself consists firstly of a classroom activity lasting 50 minutes, in which the boys will be in small groups. They will then be interviewed solo with a member of the teaching staff. Senior staff will meet the boys during part of their classroom activity and will also meet parents, in groups, to answer any questions they may have.
