Will a Strong Vocabulary Help with 11 Plus Exams?
You may have heard of verbal reasoning and be aware of the English and comprehension elements of the 11+ exams. To answer many of the questions, your child will need to rely on a strong vocabulary. Many children will develop a good vocabulary though: extensive reading of good literature, school and home. Even children who display and use an extensive vocabulary will benefit from having an assessment. You can assess your child's knowledge with our 11 plus vocabulary list. You will identify known words and identify synonyms and antonyms.
