What area are you from as the tests are slightly different with varying types of questions covered in some areas.

My daughter appeared exam at Slough Grammar. Contrary to what NFER answer sheets say, the pupils were told to fill the boxes. NFER shows marking a firm line. This ate up a lot of time it seems and my daughter wasn't able to finish the papers.

She was doing well during preparations. This sudden change puzzled her. Does anyone have similar experience?

My daughter also sat it at SG and was told to just use a single line (as we had done in practice)
So maybe you just got a dodgy invigilator!
We all know that time is critical in all the tests but especially the NV so maybe it would give you grounds to appeal?????

That's strange. It was quite demoralising for my daughter and us. Many thanks for the information. Hope we are successful in the end.

Hi guest,

It is possible that not all the tests are over. Giving away the NVR questions could give an unfair advantage to lake takers.

Best wishes

Catherine
