As many % as you can get without denting your daughters confidence.
This may seem rather vague, but what else can you do?

You only mention 'Bond Papers' and there's no harm in looking at those, but as the multiple choice nferNelson Practice Papers are what's recommended for WGHS you should look at those too. Even then you shouldn't expect the actual exam to closely follow those practice papers.

The KEVI Grammar exam is very different and you should definitely read past posts in this forum on that subject.

As many as you can get without denting your daughters confidence and enthusiasm.
Is September some sort of deadline?

Hundreds. With eight to ten times more applicants than places.
However; kids who get in are not, generally, freaks the like of which you've never seen before. They're just bright, keen children who cope well with exams and a rapid pace of learning.

I wish I knew a way to avoid that – I'd have used it myself – but it just comes with the territory, sorry. You just have to be very, very careful not to communicate your anxiety to your daughter.

If you end up with a free choice – no language bias, equal travel, single sex not actively desired - then I'd pick KEVI Fiveways. Either would be an outstanding opportunity and it's best not to build up any strong preference just yet, if you can avoid it.

Do please read the past posts in this section. There's a wealth of knowledge already built up there, ready and waiting, which I found indispensable when I was going through this with my son. I'm sure you'll find it useful too.
