My DS sat the KE test on Saturday. He was very quiet when he came out and only said how hard he had found it (especially the VR part).
A day later he came out of his shell and told us how disappointed he was that he couldn't complete the maths and had to guess the last 4 questions as time was running out.
We had told him prior to the exam it is set out so that most children cannot complete the tests so not to be disappointed if he didnt.
Maths is his strongest subject and he was looking forward to the test and he had set himself a personal goal to finish all the maths questions without guessing.
We personally believe that our DS has done exceptional well to be in a position where he can sit grammar school test as he is ADHD and Dsylexia.
After more conversation with our DS he seems to think that he 40/50 % of the VR and 70% in NVR and 90+% in the maths.
When we have asked our DS for estimations in the practice papers he was normally only a couple of % off.
Bishop Vesey is his first choice and he seemed to be a bit disappointed that the test wasnt more challenging and he finished the maths papers 25 mins before the end of the test. He seems to think that he done pretty well but is worried that with it being so easy and with only 45 VR questions a couple of which he knew the answers but could not spell the words it impacts his percentage greatly even though he feels he got 40/45 approx.
Only the Handsworth Grammar and Queen Marys to go looking forward to having my dining room back and free of practice papers.
Good Look Everyone.
