    In light of the recent move to close all schools due to the covid-19 outbreak and the announcement that SATs, GCSEs and A-levels will not take place in May/June this year, we are sure everybody is wondering whether the real 11 Plus exams in 2020 will be cancelled or postponed too.

    So far, we have not heard any mention of this. Whilst we imagine there is a chance they might be postponed (depending on when schools reopen), we doubt they will be cancelled altogether since one could argue that even if children have missed some of their Year 5 curriculum, everybody is in the same boat so the results of an 11 Plus exam would still be able to rank students in this cohort (even if their scores are lower than students in previous years).

    If you have heard anything from your LEA or school, or perhaps have any other thoughts on the topic, we’d love to hear from you.

    Hi

    Thanks for starting the thread. Keeping our fingers crossed. In case it is cancelled how are they going to select the candidates then? Also, is Chukra thinking of cancelling the Mocks as yet?

    Thanks and regards,
    Vivek

    Selection of candidates would be tricky without the test results which is why we don’t expect the 11 plus exams will be cancelled. Please see our COVID-19 Update page.
