Does anyone have recent knowledge of bucks/berks exams? I know a few children who passed berks but failed bucks. Is bucks much harder ? I know berks is vr, nvr & maths and bucks is just vr, are they both multiple choice?
Berks Grammars sit 3 separate tests, with the average of the 3 being the final score. If your child is not strong at VR, Bucks makes no allowance and would therefore appear harder.
As Berks test for a more cross curricular knowledge, it would suit children strong in Maths, VR or NVR, and as averages come into play, a child stronger in one or two areas will boost the average score across the three; thus making the Berks appear easier than Bucks.
Both Berks and Bucks sit M/C tests
