The Basics

The Bucks STT (Secondary Selection Test) is the 11+ entrance exam for 12 selective schools  and 1 partially selective school in Buckinghamshire and for partnering schools in other areas. 


The exam includes 2 papers. Paper 1 assesses a mixture of English, Comprehension and Verbal Reasoning, while Paper 2 focuses on Maths, Numeracy and Non-Verbal/Spatial Reasoning. Questions are largely multiple choice and it's really important to practise using a separate answer sheet as the papers are computer-marked, so nothing written on the paper itself will be admissible. The final score is weighted 50% towards verbal ability, 30% towards numerical ability and 20% Non-Verbal.
