**When you are looking at a series of letters, notice if they go forwards - or backwards!**

In these 11-Plus verbal reasoning quizzes you will be given a sequence of letters and you have to find the next group in the series. There will always be two letters in the pattern, and always five sets of two letters in the question. You must find the sixth.

We really hope you are enjoying this series of quizzes. We know that once you have figured them out, they can seem a little bit like they are all the same, but this is the kind of practice you need if you are to do well in the 11+ tests. So maybe the little puzzles sprinkled throughout the questions will keep you interested for a while longer. Enjoy Letter Series quiz number 3.
