Default Can you pass the 11+?

It's not been around since 1981 or thereabouts.

So, 15 questions, 10 minutes to answer them.

Me? I got 13/15.

14/15 with timer stopped at 5:27. Got the last one wrong (still can't work that one out).

Down my way, the 11+ has never gone away, and my daughter invigilated this year's a couple of weeks ago in her London borough.

14/15 couldn't get last one either - just over 1 min left when I gave up and guessed incorrectly

The last question is add 2 to every second number (1st number is 16 + 2 = 18 (3rd number) + 2 = 20 (4th number) + 2 = 22 (5th number) and the answer.

15/15 for me

Like many others, I had to pass the 11+ to get into Grammar School

13/15 in 5:58 due to two stupid mistakes - I always did rush things :-(
