Eleven Plus Regions

It must be very difficult for the writers of eleven plus papers to be able regionalise them for all the different eleven plus areas.

It is easy to see how one region can ask for certain criteria to be met - while another asks for s different set of numbers of questions. each region too may have different degrees of difficulty. The actual eleven plus papers could then easily vary from one county to another.

What would be the effect if one county asked for slang or jargon to be taken into account? A slang question is often like a colloquial question. “He is just crazy,” could mean that the person is `slightly round the bend’ or it could mean enthusiastic, energetic, full of energy – as well as being wholesome and attractive.
