So, you’ve made it to the second quiz in our Easy section of Eleven Plus maths dealing with Time (if you haven’t yet played the previous ones, I suggest you do so now). Like the first, this quiz will ask you to solve some problems involving the 24-hour clock.
Last time we supplied you with a conversion table to make things a little easier. They’ll be no such help this time! But there are some tips which you can remember:
- 12 am (midnight) is 00:00 on a 24-hour clock
- 12 pm (noon) is 12:00 on a 24-hour clock
- All other am times are the same as on a 12-hour clock (but put a 0 in front of single-digit hours)
- All other pm times are converted to 24-hour times by adding 12 to the hours
It sounds quite complicated, but 24-hour clocks are a piece of cake once you’ve got your head around them. Have a go at this quiz to find out whether or not you need more practice.
