# Letters for Symbols Codes 1

Welcome to the first quiz in our series of Eleven Plus Verbal Reasoning quizzes on Letters for Symbols. What exactly are they? Well, they are codes in which symbols are used to represent letters. It’s up to you to crack the code and write a new word in it.

You will see many peculiar symbols in this quiz. Don’t be put off by them – each one represents a particular letter. Check the letters in the given words against the symbols you see. Some may appear more than once. If so, that’s a massive clue!

Use your powers of deduction to work out which symbol represents which letter. You should then be able to solve the problem. We’ve given you an example before the quiz to show you exactly what we mean.
