At this time, the only exams that may not be significantly affected by the school closures in England are the grammar school and independent school entrance exams.
While the government has not given the country a strong indication of when schools will resume, Scottish First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon admonished parents not to be surprised if schools are closed until the summer.
Even if this is the case, it is likely that the 11 Plus tests may still go ahead because schools may well have resumed by September, the month in which the grammar school selection tests take place. Independent school entrance exams start anywhere from late October.
Is it essential, therefore that all Year 5 children who are preparing for the 11 Plus (and children preparing for the 10 and 13 Plus) exams continue to work consistently and make use of their time out of school to perfect their skills.
It is not a good idea to take a lot of time out from studying, as this will definitely have a negative impact on any child’s performance in the 11 Plus exams.
