When is the Bucks 11+ exam this year? My son is applying for Sir William Borlase's in Marlow, but we're applying from outside the county so won't be entered automatically. I couldn't find the dates on the school website - is it cancelled this year?

No, I'm pretty sure it's going ahead! My daughters in school in buckinghamshire so I think she'll be entered automatically, but we've been told the test will be on September 9th!

Hi Peter!

The best advice I think is to just do all the past papers you can, and to try to ensure your child is really engaged with the maths and English they learn at school.

I think this kind of guide is really helpful: https://blog.thinkacademy.uk/11-plus-guide/

It's important to plan your preparation ahead and not make it too stressful late on!

Thanks Sally! That's such helpful advice, we're already making a plan for revision but that's going to be really helpful when structuring it.
