Is it good to be 11, and have 95 WPM, or terrible? Discuss. Btw, Yes, I am eleven with that WPM.

I don't think there is a correlation between age and speed. (except for <7 and >70)
Maybe there is, in this case I would like to see the data about it.

Take my case, I started learning the Bépo keyboard layout 3 months ago.
At the start, I did around 10 WPM, now I regularly reach 90 WPM...

So, « 95 WPM, good for a 11 year old ? » the answer depends on "since when" you are trying to type quickly.

I just seen a 11 yr old with 160 WPM.

So, I got a long ways to go to be considered "good" for my age :(

Is 104 WPM good for a 11 yr old?

I'm still not sure if 95 is even close to good, but 104 might be a different story.

I mean for my age, not overall, since trying to go for beating everyone overall would be absurd.

Yes. Yes, it is.

I'm 21 years old, and a professional programmer (that means that I never stop typing) and my average speed on a normal typing day after warming up is about 75 wpm. Considering that the average typing speed of teenagers is about 40-ish, I'd say that your typing speed is pretty good, especially for your age.

I'm in transition between typing methods and so I'm trying to improve my accuracy and speed enough to acheive, one day with hope, 100 wpm on at least one test.

Worry not that you're surrounded (at least digitally) by some of the fastest typist on the internet. You're doing really well for your age.

It's not really a matter of age; more a matter of practice and technique. When I was your age, I was at about 100-105 WPM; now I'm peaking 120 WPM. That said, I've been using computers (actively, at least) since I was five years old.

Some people are just naturally good typists, and some people aren't. That isn't to say that some people are born with magic fingers, but having a different mindset or way of thinking/doing can help. For example, someone focused on quality over quantity (i.e. accuracy over speed) might be slower than someone focused on quantity over quality (i.e. speed over accuracy).

I have just turned twelve and have only a speed of 87WPM. For me that is really good.

95 is good for anyone, age has nothing to do with it.

Yes! 95 WPM is good! My sister is 11 and she can type 120 words per minute! The average is around 30 for an 11 year old, so you should be proud!
