I am new to this forum and am preparing my child for the KE exams. Thanks to KenR, I have been reading through the CEM website
. From what is mentioned on the GETINTU Framework of assessment, it seems that only the really 'bright' kids will be able to get through the entrance test rather than those through taught achievement. Did any1 else get this impression? If that is the case, (is it worth) or how is it possible to prepare your child with this kind of assessment?
Should I be using NFER or Bond papers or shall I just teach my child for the fun of it? I have to say, that I had a look at some of the questions under the INCAS type of assessment - and they can really throw a child.
If the GETINTU entrance tests, are similiar to the INCAS format, then I can understand how only the really bright ones get through- especially with the TIME pressure. But on second thoughts, is it not possible to train a child to pass this type of exam? Any thoughts?
