GL English Transfer Test No 1
These papers are in multiple choice format and test number 1 contains 60 test questions and 10 additional familiarisation questions. This is a similar format to the actual test and is ideal practice for the GL (PPTC) English Transfer Test.

These questions are designed in such a way as to encourage your child to read the text carefully to find the answer. The text may also introduce your child to new and different words. The next section of 10 questions is built around spelling and is set out in a similar manner to the sample test offered to parents by GL Assessment - who set the actual test.
The third section contains 7 questions and will help to improve your child's English grammar.
10 more comprehension questions follow asking questions around a topic that should be of interest to most 10- or 11-year olds.
This is followed by another comprehension with a historical theme. The concluding sections are on spelling. punctuation and general English.
