Timeline for grammar school applications

Timeline for grammar school applications for entry in September 2018

The 11-plus is the selection examination for grammar school entry only.

Familiarisation/practice sessions are mock examinations organised by Plymouth grammar schools to provide an opportunity for candidates to familiarise themselves with the type of test paper and examination conditions they will have in the 11-plus examination scheduled for September. There is no obligation for candidates seeking a place at a grammar school to attend the practice session. Performance in the practice session has no bearing on the 11-plus examination. Further details are available from the schools direct.
