Educational Games

It is always a good idea to include quick thinking games as part of preparation for selective tests. Educational games can really help to boost core skills and make preparation fun.

Offline Games

Three packs of cards designed especially for entrance exam preparation:

  • Build Vocabulary
  • Boost Arithmetic and Number Skills
  • Improve Short Term Memory and Quick Thinking Skills

Online Brain Games


We have lots of educational games specifically designed to test the core skills needed to succeed in 11plus entrance tests. The games are part of our online testing system (named COAsT).

A game to test your spacial awareness. Find the 'odd' shape.
We all need to play with figures from time to time. Improve your number skills against the clock.
Think you have a good sense of spacial awareness? Try this one. It might hurt your brain though!
A simple sorting game. Sort numbers or letter in ascending order. It's all about speed.
A test of short term memory, accuracy and spacial awareness. When the targets disappear, shoot where you think they were!
Rearrange the cards to form a valid sum.
Good at spelling? How about spelling backwards? Listen to the letters and type in the word being spelt.
Keep calm to score well in this game. You need to process visual and audio data quickly.
3 cards are displayed. You have to think quickly and decide whether the 3 cards form a valid group.
A classic short term memory game with a twist. Gets harder and harder!
Solve the anagram while the letters spin around the screen to confuse you.
A twist on the usual memory games. In this game you have to memorize a sequence of sounds.
A chunk has been chomped out of a picture. You have to decide what that chomp looked like. Chompy chompy.
We all made puzzles when we were young but this game is a supercharged version. Go go go. Don't waste a single second.
The type of test you may find as part of a job interview. The shapes are transformed from top to bottom. Choose the one possible answer.
Good at spelling? How about spelling backwards? Watch the letters on screen and type in the word being spelt.
Good at spelling? How about spelling backwards? Words are spelt backwards using the phonetic alphabet. Your job is to type in the word being spelt.
Numbers on the outside of the brackets are used to make the inside numbers. Work out the missing number.
A classic test used in Psychology. What colour is the word?

    1. When you buy any credit pack your students will be given full access (for 365 days from the date of purchase) to all of the games and over 5000 practice questions in the Question Shuffle feature of COAsT, in addition to being able to assigned tests using the credits.

    1. Log in to the student and go to ‘My 11plus’. Then go to ‘My Activity’ > ‘Breakdown’. Expand the maths topic and scroll down until you find ‘Nets & Cubes’ or whichever topic you want. Press the ‘Do This Type’ button and you should get what you wanted. However, there are also some great printable maths worksheets which cover each topic. These can be accessed via this KS2 Maths Key Objectives page.

  1. I’ve started using this website on other devices like this one however (on this one) I can’t play any of the games, which has never happened before. Can you please help because I enjoy those games alot.

  2. Hi everyone ,
    Sorry to bother you again. I just wanted to know if anyone finds Speed Puzzle easy cause I don’t. It takes me all the time they give you to solve 1 puzzle. The hardest one for me is the puzzle of loads of blue stars around each other. I ‘m going to do the exam for Henrietta Barnet ,Westcliffe, Chelmsford High School for Girls and Southend High School for Girls. Anyone doing the same???????
    I LOVE CHUCKRA AND 11+!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I am new to this website and I have two questions .Is COAST not free? My second question was can you do free tests on 11 plus. If yes how. please reply as soon as possible because currently all I know how to do is to play games!!!!!!!!!! THANKS CHUCKRA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. There are some free tests in COAsT. In the Test List tab it tells you how many credits each test costs. Some of them are 0 credits. If you click on that column header it will sort the test list by credits so you can see all the 0 credit tests next to each other.

    1. First you have to sign up for Question Mix on (it requires a separate sign up from the one on this site). The games only become available once you pay for access (£5 for one month, £12 for 3 months or £24 for the year)

  4. @maxx123 – you just register on and then there is a link on the top menu that says ‘Pay for Access’. Click on that and follow the steps. Once you have paid then you will have access to hundreds more questions as well as the 11 plus brain games. Have fun!
