11+ Mock Exams

Preparation is the key

We run 11+ mock exams every month between March and August, here at the Riviera Tuition Centre, by the Harbour in Torquay.

Our mock exams mirror the real thing as much as possible, in terms of the difficulty of the test and the examination setting. Our mock tests are a perfect opportunity to practice time management and test everything that has been covered in tuition or to allow your child to have their first taste of an exam situation so they will feel at ease in the real 11+.


Our mock exams have proven to help prepare pupils for the 11+ and allow children to apply the knowledge they have acquired through tutoring. The CEM papers used by the local grammar schools are not published commercially and are written specifically for each school. Therefore, our mock exams are as close to the real thing as possible! We ensure that the timings and a sound track is used just like in the exam, so the experience will be similar to the actual 11+.


After sitting one of our mock exams, your papers will be marked and results will be sent to you via email within two working days. Personalised feedback with useful tips and comments from our 11+ tutors will also be sent to you via a video link, along with a breakdown of scores within 5 working days . We aim to give as much feedback as we can to ensure that you know what to focus on before the next mock exam.


Here is what one our parents last year had to say:


“Thank you so much to Emma and Suzanne – we got 3 yeses! Suzanne was a fantastic tutor who encouraged him all the way through and Emma gave such useful feedback in the mock exams. The 11+ mocks definitely raised his confidence in his own abilities and gave him the knowledge of how quickly to work and under pressure. We are over the moon!”

Our mock exams will be covid-secure with all sanitising and social distancing measures in place. We are putting the safety of your child and your family first, whilst still allowing them to get that all-important mock experience.


We will also have an online mock option available if you did need to sit the mock exam at home.
