Product description

Is the nation really dumbing down? Are exams easier than they were in the good old days? Now's the chance to find out whether age really does equal wisdom with "The Eleven-Plus Book". A real way to contrast the schooling of yesteryear with modern-day practices and settle the debate that surfaces every summer about slipping educational standards. Every generation can attempt questions on a number of subjects from English and arithmetic to general knowledge and composition. Who will come out top in your family? Gorgeously packaged with a retro design, "The Eleven-Plus Book" is a fantastic nostalgic look back for all those who experienced the daunting exam the first time round, and a great way for the younger generation to prove that they have the wits to outsmart their elders!You can try out your literacy skills on this question, and write an essay on one of the following subjects: Description of 'The Bravest Deed that I know'; Camping; A School jaunt with one of the teachers; 'Gardening' or 'Sewing'; and Eggs.
