Wirral LEA 11+ Question Types 1, 2 and 3

Author: Mike Edwards Published: 8th September 2010 08:55

The first in a series of articles by Mike Edwards of The Tutors, relating to the Wirral LEA 11+ Method & Technique Course

There are 21 question types covered in the Wirral LEA 11+, these are the first three. I will post further articles covering the remaining types at regular intervals.

11+Question Type 1 Insert a Letter

In these questions the same letter will fit both sets of brackets, to end the word in front of the brackets and start the word after the brackets. Find the letter and mark it on the answer sheet.

Example

tea (?) akes
fro (?) op

On the answer sheet you are given five letters to choose from

A k
B c
C l
D m
E g

Fit each letter in turn into the brackets to see if you can make FOUR words.

You may find that some letters will make one, two or three words but NOT all four.

It is imortant to check that you have made FOUR words.

In the example

tea (k) is a word, but (k) akes is not a word
tea (c) is not a word
tea (l) is a word, (l) akes is a word fro (l) is not a word
tea (m) is a word, (m) akes is a word, fro (m) is a word, (m) op is a word

So the answer must be (m)

You do not have to check (g) because there will not be two correct answers.

There are no variations in this question. You should aim for 100% accuracy

Sample questions

fla (?) rap
mel (?) own

A t
B e
C r
D l
E d

swi (?) eat
dru (?) ark

A b
B p
C g
D m
E f

war (?) udge
clea (?) est

A n
B m
C f
D t
E b

hear (?) are
tol (?) ecent

A t
B l
C s
D d
E r


Question Type 2 Related Words

In these questions three of the five words are connected in some way. Find the TWO words that DO NOT go with these three and mark them BOTH on the answer sheet.

Example

blue shed black cat yellow

Remember to read the question. You are being asked to find TWO words that do not go with the other three. The two words do not have to be connected in any way. You are asked to mark these two words on the answer sheet.

A blue
B shed
C black
D rat
E yellow

Look at the first word "blue"

Are there two other words that will go with "blue"?

Yes, black and yellow.

Will "shed" or "rat" fit with blue, black or yellow?

No, they do not.

So the answer you mark on the answer sheet is B and C, shed and rat.

Question Variances
There is a long list of variances in this question based on different categories, some example are:

COLOURS
FORM OF TRANSPORT
LOCATIONS
USE OF OBJECTS
PARTS OF THE BODY
FRUIT
ACTIVITIES
SHAPES

Sample Questions

close plane ship start train

A close
B plane
C ship
D start
E train

cross fly angry square kite

A cross
B fly
C angry
D square
E kite

follow hide pursue conceal chase

A follow
B hide
C pursue
D conceal
E chase

crusade drive energy propel ambition

A crusade
B drive
C energy
D propel
E ambition

Question Type 3 Word-Letter Codes

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

The above alphabet is there to help you with these questions. Each question has a different code. Work out the correct answer and mark it on the answer sheet.

Example Type 1

The code for BABY is CBCZ
Work out the code for FOAL

A GAPB
B GPBM
C GPAM
D PGMB
E BPAG

The method is a simple counting forward or backward technique. Use (F) and (B)

B to C is F1
A to B is F1
B to C is F1
Y to Z is F1

Apply the formula to FOAL

F F1 is G
O F1 is P
A F1 is B
L F1 is M

So the answer is option "B", GPBM

*IMPORTANT NOTE
As the codes move forward or backward they sometimes go past the beginning or end of the alphabet e.g
Y F3
or
C B4

To deal with this we wrap-a-round the alphabet, i.e.

W X Y Z A B C D E ...................................W X Y Z A B C D E

so

Y F3 is B
and
C B4 is Y

We use an alphabet circle for these questions.

Example Type 2

The code for WAIT is AWMP
What is the word for FAWP?

A BEAT
B BALE
C EAST
D TEST
E BEST

You are going to look at the connection between the letters in WAIT and the letters in the code AWMP.

Because you are working "back" from the code to the word, you need to work "backwards" to get the word.

W to A is F4
A to W is B4
I to M is F4
T to P is B4

Working backwards gives the formula B4, F4, B4, F4

Apply this to FAWP

F B4 is B
A F4 is E
W B4 is S
P F4 is T

So the answer must be option "E", BEST

Example Type 3

This is an unusual question because it does not follow the above rule, however you do still count. But this time you count in an equal number of letters from the front or end of the alphabet.

A = Z
B = Y
C = X
etc

This is called a mirror-image question.

The code for DEAF is WVZU
Work out the code for WADE

D to W is four places in
E to V is five places in
A to Z is one place in
F to U is six places in

Apply this to WADE

W = D
A = Z
D = W
E = V

So the correct answer is option "C" DZWV

Sample Questions

The code for BEAR is CFBS
Work out the code for MOST

A TRSC
B FOLZ
C KMAR
D BPTA
E NPTU

The code for PART is RCTV
Work out the code for SOME

A UQTN
B TLPF
C PNTL
D UQOG
E UPNF

The code for YACHT is ACEJV
What is the word for KOCIG ?

A IMPEL
B IMAGE
C HOIST
D IMPLY
E JOIST

The code for CREDIT is XIVWRG
Work out the code for ENSURE

A VMHGHW
B VMHFIV
C VMHFIW
D VMJFIV
E UMGEHX
