Many thanks to all of the posters regarding the exams for these schools, particularly Shack who has given some hope that the required mark may not need to touch 90% for Kendrick!

I wondered whether any of your DCs who have sat exams for these schools had commented on the difficulty of the VR or NVR papers compared with the ones they had practised on. Would they for example be as hard as Walsh or more in line with the Bright Sparks series?

Many thanks
CN

Based on my own DCs comments at both schools I would say that they are more in line with Bright Sparks and NFER in terms of difficulty, probably not as hard as Walsh, although we did very few of the Walsh papers ourselves.

My DD did very few NVR papers - just the 4 NFER practice papers and a few bond papers. For VR we did NFER, Bright sparks & IPS.

MY DD came out saying that the Kendrick papers were not as hard as she'd expected, so they were clearly no worse than papers she'd practised on.
Where the questions were different to those she'd come across - like the crossword type questions - they were apparently very straightforward.

Thank you Torrylee and Ks. That is reassuring (although at this stage with my DS I am still looking at the Bright Sparks papers and wondering how anyone let alone a 10 year old could complete that in the time allocated!!)
