# Are you smarter than a 10-year-old? Quiz challenges adults to answer year six exam questions

## Are you smarter than a 10-year-old? Test yourself with Year Six exam questions – including complex sums and verbal reasoning

• Quiz has been created by online Tutor House ahead of the 11-plus exam results
• Gives the public the chance to see if they’re smarter than a 10-year-old student
• Includes adding in missing numbers into sequences and solving complex sums

An online tutoring platform has created a quiz of past Grammar school 11-plus exam questions, so British adults can test whether they are smarter than a 10-year-old.

The quiz, created by Tutor House, has been formed ahead of the upcoming results of the 11-plus exam, which year six pupils sat early September.

Government statistics show that Grammar school attendance is the highest it’s been in 30 years, making the entry exam more competitive for students compared to recent years.

Simpler questions include adding in missing numbers or letters into verbal reasoning sequences, whereas more difficult questions ask participants to solve complex multiplication sums.
