Week 16 Tutor Doctor Buckinghamshire

Welcome. After a break while I focus on my English GCSE students, the 11+ blog continues! This week we look at area and perimeter, subjects that are almost guaranteed to come up on the Bucks 11+ exam paper. We get to the end of the sample non-Verbal Reasoning paper for GL assessment. (There is another paper to come!) We do another section of Verbal Reasoning – Codes. And we look at abbreviations.
