A reminder notice will show in the Student account (in ‘My 11Plus’) a few days before the virtual mock, but the button to start the tests will only become available from the start time on the date of your virtual mock booking.
Monitoring the virtual mock exam
- To avoid any possible distractions, your student’s mobile phone should be switched off for the duration of the exam.
- Ensure that 11plus.co.uk is the only website open on the computer for the whole duration of the virtual mock i.e. online dictionaries, calculators, social media or mail websites should NOT be open in other tabs.
- A parent should sit nearby to keep an eye on the student, but once the exam is in progress, nothing will be required from you as all timing and instructions are controlled by 11plus.co.uk.
Get used to My 11Plus in advance
When you book a virtual mock exam, you will be given credits so that you can assign previous years’ mock tests for your Student to complete online. Simply log in to your Parent/Tutor account and go to ‘My 11Plus’ or try My 11Plus BETA to assign tests. Students will need to log in to their account to complete questions or tests.
Virtual Mocks will be done in My 11Plus BETA (our new online testing system).
We advise doing this days/weeks before the virtual mock so that if you experience any problems, you can contact us for assistance.
