The secrets to helping your child pass the 11+ exam
Did you know the 11+ exam varies from school to school, area to area?
There is more to passing the 11+ exam than just practising a few multiple choice, generic 11+ type questions. Times have changed, so have the 11+ exams and competition is fierce.
To gain the biggest advantage, your child needs practice that is as close to the format, timing and style of the actual exam in the right subjects to gain familiarity, speed and confidence.
During practice, your child needs to understand how to correct and learn from their mistakes, in order to progress. They also need motivation and to build self-belief, which is something YOU can help with - but do you know how?
Our e-book 'Unfair Advantage - The Secret To Helping Your Child Pass The 11+ Exam' explains all - how to navigate the whole 11+ process, when to start, how to assess whether it's right for your child, how to overcome obstacles, how to keep your child on track and how to use 11PlusSwot cutting edge resources so your child has a successful, happy experience. No other 11+ resource site offers this.
"Behind every child who believes in themself is a parent who believed in them first."
This is for you if...
11plusswot is the complete one-stop shop for your 11+ needs!
We believe 11PlusSwot offers everything your child will need to achieve success in the 11+ exam and stay motivated, happy and on-track. 11PlusSwot offers:
Tailored Questions To Match Your School
Access to tens of thousands of practice questions tailored to your specific school test, matching subjects, format, timing, style and layout as closely as possible, building familiarity, speed and confidence. Written by highly-respected, qualified teachers and tutors, the questions are available as download pdfs, online tests and physical papers.
Dedicated Online Test Centre
Dedicated state of the art Online Test Centre in all specific subjects relevant to your chosen school or area. The tests are marked for you, charting and recording your child's progress over time and identifying any weak areas. In addition, Topic Genius enables your child to build ability and confidence in lots of specific topic areas (eg algebra, codes, probability, punctuation and so on).
Techniques, Tips & Video Tutorials
Invaluable teaching aids for students and parents alike, including our Answer Genie button on the Test Review Page (ie get a question wrong and learn how to correct it), 100+ Tutorial Videos teaching techniques and tips, meaning your child is learning as well as practising. Our Swot Facebook Group is hosted by qualified teachers, tutors and coaches offering support and advice too.
Every year we enjoy hearing how we have helped so many children gain access to their chosen schools. 11+ tutors all around the UK use our resources and we are trusted by a number of selective schools to set their entrance exam too - says it all really, doesn't it?
The 11PlusSwot family business was set up in 2004 by Tim and Jo to help their son pass the 11+ exam, so they understand parents' needs and concerns. Swot cares about your child's emotional well-being as much as their academic success, which is why we support you through this journey with tips on how to keep your child motivated, on track and happy via Swot Parent Coach Newsletters.
As a family business, we are keen to do our bit and give back to other families, so a percentage of every sale goes to our chosen charity, 'Children With Cancer'. While Swot is helping your child achieve academic success, you can help families going through the toughest of times imaginable.
For a limited time, get instant access to our 7 Day FREE trial and receive our FREE E-Book too!
Yes, that's right. When you sign up for a 7 day free trial of our 11PlusSwot service, offering access to the Online Test Centre and download pdf exam papers, you qualify for a free copy of our 11+ guide too.
we've been trusted by over 45,000 parents, schools & tutors since 2004 and for good reason!
The resources we offer are relevant, up-to-date and devised by experts. As you navigate the maze of information on the internet about the 11+, you will soon learn that there is a lot of mis-information and out-of-date resources online sadly.
We offer correct formats and question types. If your child's exam requires written answers, there is little value in practising multiple choice questions (that's all that most other 11+ resource providers offer). If your child needs to complete a computer marked paper on exam day or follow audio instructions, it's useful to get used to this in advance. Practising in the relevant format builds familiarity, speed and confidence. In addition, you don't want your child to practise questions that will simply never come up in their chosen school's 11+ exam, nor do you want to miss any question types that definitely will!
Swot is a learning aid as well as a practice resource. If your child answers a question incorrectly during an online test, they have the opportunity to find out why during the Test Review stage by clicking the Answer Genie button. There's nothing more frustrating than getting an answer wrong but not understanding why!
Video Tutorials offer current teaching methods. Times change and, whether it is you or your child watching the videos, it's good to have confidence that the methods being taught are the same that are being taught in your child's school today.
Top Genius turns weaknesses into strengths. It's great to practise complete papers, but what if your child lacks confidence in a particular subject, say algebra or co-ordinates, percentages or codes? Topic Genius allows your child to do shorter tests in over 100 different topic areas taken from our question bank of over 45,000 questions.
Tips and techniques could mean the difference between a pass and a fail. There's no doubt that speed is vital in the 11+ and every tip or technique learnt could make the difference, not only to the result but to your child's confidence too.
Practice is delivered in 3 ways. Swot offers practice in 3 formats, downloadable pdf papers, online tests and physical papers. Don't underestimate the value of getting your child to sit at the kitchen table with a paper test. This is the closest experience to real test conditions and offers the opportunity to develop neatness and speed.
Swot offers a focus on your child's well-being (and yours!). Unlike most other providers, who only focus on practice, we believe that a happy child is an achieving child, so we support you in the psychological aspects of the whole 11+ process. We also support you, the parent, during what can be a challenging time, by offering support and guidance through our Facebook Group (hosted by qualified teachers) and Parent Coach Newsletters.

Dear 11 Plus Swot Team - I am happy to report that my daughter has just received an 11+ pass with good scores!
We are delighted and thank you very much for the invaluable boost that it gave to her confidence being able to sit at the computer and practice with your online testing facility.
Our 11+ Swot membership gave me the confidence as a parent to tutor her myself knowing that we were covering all bases.
I will not hesitate to recommend you to other parents who are preparing their children for the 11+. Please relay our thanks to the team.
Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:
Why is it important to use resources that are tailored to our chosen school?
Back in 2004, we just offered generic multiple choice questions in English, Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal reasoning (as some other 11+ resource providers still only do). Today this just won't cut it and competition for places is fierce! As schools, consortiums and local authorities have different tests, in different formats, some in different subjects, we feel passionately that your child needs practice that is as close to the real exam as possible, building familiarity, confidence and speed.
Some schools require written answers, some multiple choice, some require computer marked pages to be completed or your child could be asked to follow audio instructions. New subjects, such as, Spatial Reasoning, Figure Analysis, Figure Recognition, NVR Pictures, Continuous Writing and so on have been added to exams and we have updated with the times.
You don't want your child to practise questions that will simply never come up in their chosen school's 11+ exam, nor do you want to miss any question types that definitely will!
Do you offer a trial period?
We do! We offer a 7 day FREE trial with our study packs. Payment is only taken after the trial period. you can of course cancel at any time. If you choose to cancel you will lose access to the Online Test Centre. Of course, you are able to upgrade at any point or rejoin. Access to the PDF downloads is limited during the trial.
Do you offer a FREE membership?
Yes! We want you to be absolutely sure you have made the right decision by trusting us with your 11+ requirements. We therefore offer a FREE 7 day trial period where you can try out the full tests, downloads and resources.
What is the Test Centre?
The Test Centre is our cutting edge online testing centre where students can take their 11Plus online tests. The tests have been specifically designed to match your school in layout, style and format so you know you are focused in on exactly what the school is looking for and it makes a great practice area where you can hone your skills before the real exam. Tests can be taken multiple times and the results stored for later review and analysis.
If your child answers a question incorrectly during an online test, there is a direct link on the Test Review Page to our "How-To" videos explaining how to answer that particular type of question, so you are never far away from the solution and it's a wonderful learning aid (Premium & Platinum level only).
160 How-To Video Tutorials are also available independently in the Online Test Centre, which offer tips, techniques and current teaching methods. These videos are a great study aid for students and for parents wanting to help their child or even home-tutor. (Premium & Platinum level only).
The Test Centre also offers our Topic Genius section, which enables your child to take shorter, topic-specific tests drawing from our data bank of over 45,000 questions. For example, if your child is weak in algebra or spatial reasoning, codes or spellings, they can build their confidence and strength in these areas. (Premium & Platinum level only).
How do the paid subscription levels work?
When you sign up for our paid subscription levels, you get the first 7 days subscription to the Online Test Centre FREE with the study pack. After 7 days you will be moved onto our paid subscription service unless you decide to cancel before that point. Standard, Premium & Platinum level offer different study packs and options in the Online Test Centre.
Can I cancel at any time?
Yes. You can cancel any of the subscription levels at any time as there is no tie-in. You are always in control of how long you want your membership to last. Of course, when you do cancel, you will lose access to the Online Test Centre and all the stored results and tracking.
What is Topic Genius?
Our Swot Online Test Centre offers the Topic Genius section, which enables your child to take shorter, topic-specific tests drawing from our ever growing data bank of over 45,000 questions. For example, if your child is weak in algebra or spatial reasoning, codes or spellings, they can build their confidence and strength in these areas. (Premium & Platinum level only).
Does Swot help with learning as well as practice?
Yes! Practice is a wonderful thing but, if your child cannot learn from their mistakes, they won't progress very quickly.
Thanks to Swot's cutting edge Online Test Centre, if your child answers a question incorrectly during an online test, there is a direct link on the Test Review Page to our "How-To" videos explaining how to answer that particular type of question, so they are learning and improving all the time (Premium & Platinum level only).
Also there are 160 How-To Video Tutorials available independently in the Online Test Centre, which offer tips, techniques and current teaching methods. These videos are a great study aid for students and for parents wanting to help their child or even home-tutor. Remember, these techniques help to promote learning, confidence and speed, which could mean the difference between a pass and a fail in the actual exam (Premium & Platinum level only).
Can Swot replace the need for private tutors?
Choosing whether or not to engage a tutor is a very personal decision and depends on your child and your financial situation. We could never make this decision for you. However, it is important to note that the Swot How-To Video Tutorials (offering tips, techniques and current teaching practice by qualified teachers and tutors), which are available to watch separately or through a direct link from the Test Review Page, offer a really cost-effective alternative!
When you consider that a tutor could cost upwards of £140 a month (if you can find a good one that has vacancies at times that suit you) and the Swot Premium membership costs considerably less (available from the comfort of your own home 24/7), it's food for thought!
Of course you could always go for our Platinum membership that includes 1:1 sessions with the Swot online tutors.
