Quality Learning offers a comprehensive 11 plus programme for students. 11 plus exams are typically composed of Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning, Mathematics and English.
Verbal Reasoning assesses a student’s capability to learn and their intelligence. Verbal reasoning tests are used by numerous private schools in their entrance examinations. The Grammar School system uses verbal reasoning as 50% of their entrance requirements.
Verbal Reasoning is a test based on language and solving problems, which depends on students having a wide ranging vocabulary. Students must form words, find connections between numbers and words, find synonyms and atonyms and make basic calculations.
Quality Learning teaches how to answer the various questions that could appear in the Verbal Reasoning exam.
Non-Verbal Reasoning is a test based on symbols, patterns, shapes and pictures. There are three different types of questions which test a student’s problem solving skills.
Similarities: Students must discover similarities and differences between patterns, symbols and pictures.
Sequences: The student will be asked to find the connection between a group of symbols. They may have to add a missing part of a sequence or look for the next symbol.
Analogies: This question on logic is a two-part question which requires students to look for a link between two pictures and then relate that link to a different pair of pictures.
