What is the Wolverhampton Girls’ High School 11 plus exam format?

The 11 plus exam for Wolverhampton Girls’ High School follows the CEM 11 plus for the Shropshire, Walsall and Wolverhampton Consortium of grammar schools. The entrance exam consists of two multiple choice question papers, covering a range of numeracy, literacy and problem-solving skills.

CEM covers verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning and numerical reasoning. In practice, ‘verbal reasoning’ encompasses many of the skills tested in the GL English exam, including comprehension. Likewise, ‘numerical reasoning’ involves the core maths skills needed for the GL exam.

How to prepare your child for the Wolverhampton Girls’ High School 11 plus exam

Children should be given ample time to ensure they are ready for the 11 plus exam by starting preparations as early as possible. It’s a good idea to introduce your child to problem-solving concepts in Year 4 and move towards more tailored concepts of verbal and non-verbal reasoning in Year 5 to build a stable foundation of knowledge before moving on to exam-specific preparation.

It is then recommended to practice as many questions as possible in the format of the CEM exams. You can find examples of these in the familiarisation documents on the school’s website.
