Question types used in GL Assessment verbal reasoning papers

GL Assessment verbal reasoning tests contain 21 types of question in total.
Kent, unlike most other 11+ regions, used to use just 15 of the 21 question types in the Kent Test, but in the 2014 entry paper, the Kent Test included some questions from the 6 extra types that make up the total of 21 types. Therefore the 21 question types are relevant for all GL Assessment 11+ verbal reasoning regions (e.g. Kent, Medway, Essex (Redbridge), Lincolnshire, Wiltshire, Wirral, Lancashire, Cumbria, Devon, Torbay, Bournemouth, Dorset, Calderdale, Kingston upon Thames, North Yorkshire, Trafford, Poole and Sutton).

Note that these 21 types can also be considered to be 22 types, since one of the types contains two distinct question types i.e. Explore the Facts and Solve the Riddle.


Visuteach Verbal Reasoning (VR) Papers

Visuteach’s verbal reasoning papers are GL Assessment style papers. Our papers contain 80 multiple-choice questions to be completed in 50 minutes.

Visuteach verbal reasoning papers 1-12 contain questions drawn from the 15 question types used in the official GL Assessment Sample Pack 1 which can be purchased in shops and online. Each of our paper tests 1-12 contains 80 questions drawn from any 13 of these possible 15 types. So, to cover all 15 types, you will need to buy more than one paper. This is the way that GL Assessment papers are laid out in the official GL Assessment Sample Pack 1.

Visuteach verbal reasoning papers 13-24 contain questions drawn from the full 21 types (i.e. from the 15 types used in the official GL Assessment Sample Pack 1 plus the additional 6 types used in the official GL Assessment Sample Pack 2). Each of our paper tests 13-24 contains 80 questions drawn from any 15 or 16 of the possible 21 types. So, to cover all 21 types, you will need to buy more than one paper. This is the way that GL Assessment papers are laid out in GL Assessment Sample Pack 2.

Our papers 1-12 contain questions similar to those in GL Assessment Pack 1, and our papers 13-24 contain questions similar to those in GL Assessment Pack 2. There are differences in some of the common 15 question types that appear in these two packs e.g. Pack 1 contains some mirror code and reverse mirror code questions which do not appear in Pack 2, and some of the Explore the Facts and Solve the Riddle type questions use a slightly different logic between packs. The same is true of our papers 1-12 and 13-24.
