The 11+ software packages, Mathematics for 11+
and English for 11+, allow students to practise
sets of questions based on topics that are
covered in the Trinidad and Tobago Secondary
School Entrance Assessment (SEA) Examination.
There are two versions of the software, a school
edition which is installed in primary schools,
and a home edition for personal use which is
available exclusively from all Nigel R. Khan
The primary objective
of the 11+ programs is to help prepare children for the 11+ examination
by working sample questions and sample exams. Through lots of
practice, the child becomes familiar with the material which will help
their confidence and speed during the examination. The program is
meant to be a testing tool and not a teaching tool. The child is
expected to have been taught the material in school and utilizes the
program to practise questions and identify weak areas.
How Does It Work?

the Main Features?
Some of the key features of
the program are
- Thousands of questions are stored on the CD and additional
questions are available for download.
Technology - The questions are divided into various topics.
Each topic contains questions at three levels of complexity.
The program tracks your child's success rate in all the topics and
selects questions to match their ability. As the child gets
better at a particular topic, the program selects more complex
- the program provides immediate, visual feedback for the child,
parents, teachers and interested persons in the form of progress
charts. The charts display the success rate and the time taken
to complete questions for each topic.
Hints and Solutions
- On request, the program provides hints on how to answer a
question. There are worked solutions to each question so the
child may compare their answers to the worked solution to determine
where they made any mistakes.
perform their working of the questions on the computer using the
electronic scratch pad. There is no longer the need to have
additional scratch paper on hand.
