I'm too young to have done the 11 plus anyway, but that test is only allowing me 5 seconds to complete the thing!

You can judge the whole world on the sparkle that you think it lacks.
Yes, you can stare into the abyss, but it's staring right back.

Yeah, me too. However if you click 'continue' it ignores the timer.

Just be honest with yourself. It took me 6 minutes-ish

I failed the 11+ in 1955 (so it was obviously a meaningless test of educational ability :D ). As will CH, the timer went right down to zero very quickly. I did continue and got 13 out of 15 - probably in 6 or 7 minutes - wasn't timing accurately as I was thinking too hard. I probably should have gone back to the one where I took a wild guess.

I'm not sure I know how to be honest with myself, but I'll give it a go.... :D

14/15 within time limit, guessed the last one and no 8 that I'd left, but got one of them right. So morally I suppose my score was 13.

Remember that TV series, can't remember what it was called, they took a load of 15 and 16 year old GCSE students predicted As and Bs and taught them in a 1950s stylee. They almost all failed the 1950s 11+ maths on the first day :lol:

Yes, though failing 11+ I did pass Common Entrance (at 13 years) old) and won both a scholarship and the Divinity Prize. So I wasn't a complete failure.
