did you sit it? i'm just wondering which counties still sit this exam?

btw does it mean that if your county doesn't do it, that there are no grammar schools there?

:lolwut: what the heck is that??!?!?!

I think i'm already comfy with what I've got. And besides, there are way too many exams for people under the age of 15/16 at the moment.

yep you do the 11+ here if you want to go to a selective grammer school - many grammer schools do this in the uk.

Do Universities see the 11+ being passed as a credible thing, would it be something they take into account -if applicable- in the admission process?

No. Unis are only interested in GCSE's & A-Levels. They will never know if you took it or not. They are supposed to be encouraging more people from disadvantaged backgrounds such as secondary moderns to apply anyway.

:yep: I took it, but as it's taken at the age of 10/11 in general unis won't care whether you did or not.

Hi, I sat the exam. I believe most counties do it but I live in Brum so don't know about anywhere else doing it apart from London. No there are normally grammar schools in most counties but most have their own private tests so look online for private/grammar schools in your county and some should come up.
