Papers and solutions

I have a very big library of exam papers including 7+, 8+, 9+, 10+, 11+, 12+, 13+ and 16+, GCSE and A level. A selection of those that are less commonly available are here. Many of them don’t have publicly available solutions. I have produced answers to some of these papers so that I can mark my students’ work. More will be added as I create them. I encourage students to use these solutions only after having tried the papers extensively on their own first.

Please note that for the most part these solutions are not intended as fully-worked solutions, only so that it is easy to see whether answers are right or wrong. Where, having checked the solution, a student is still unsure how to reach it please do contact me if you need more help. The best way to provide this help will be to have a class to show the student how they would most easily reach the solution themselves.

If you spot any errors or omissions on this page please contact me.

This page currently includes Eton King’s Scholarship papers, Westminster Challenge papers and 16+ papers.

These two books are also particularly useful for 13+ and 16+ preparation:

Eton King’s Scholarship (13+) papers and solutions are here

Westminster Challenge (13+) papers and solutions are here

16+ papers and solutions are here

Other sources of papers:

  • For 11+ papers and solutions Pi Academy (including topic-wise), 11PlusAnswers and Metal Rocks are the best sources I have found (though a subscription is needed for the solutions).
  • For 13+ papers (scholarship and non-scholarship, including topic-wise) Pi Academy is also excellent.
  • Metal Rocks has papers for many age groups and is very comprehensive.
