Hi, I am new to 11 plus and struggling to understand how this 121 score works ! :oops: From what I understand there are two papers of 80 marks each and you have to pass only one test . Can some one PLEASE explain how this 121 score is calculated when one papers in only of 80 marks ! or marks from both papers are considered? Thanks

Hi,
The scores are standardised, which means score with the age (month child is born in) in bucks the higher score counts. See under headings above 11 plus advice, scroll down to standardised scores for more info.

Hope this helps

Here it is:

Only the best score is considered in Bucks - to allow for them having an off day.

Thank you for your prompt reply, I think I understand now :) I also wanted to know if 21 types of Q are distributed equally between two tests or are there any types which repeats in both the papers. ( e.g 10 types in one paper and 11 types in another !! ) and also is there a fix no of Q from each type e.g Type Z always two Q or Type K always 5 Q etc....

I have seen information about that sort of thing on here, but you would have to search. People are a bit busy today with this year's allocations, but I'm sure Sally-Anne or patricia can help you out when things calm down a bit.

From memory, type Zs come up in both (not sure how many), some appear in both papers, and all appear in at least one, so if a type doesn't come up in the first paper it will come up in the second, but like I said, the experts will be along soon.

From memory, in the sample papers Bucks send out, there were always two type Zs

Hi Panicmum2

Paper 1 will have 12 types of questions

Paper 2 will have the other 9 types plus 2 that have crossed over from the 1st test, plus the Zs. These crossovers will vary each year.

Both papers will include 2 Zs

Take a look at the following thread...

Thank you for reply. I really appreciate it.
Could you please also help me understand how the words Q work eg Type J where you have to move one letter and form two new words -
CLIMB LOSE (C) LIMB CLOSE

For multiple choice [C] [L] [I] [M] [B] answer - C , but here do they just mark C or they have to write new words as well ? I am asking this because sometimes my daughter can quickly find the letter that needs to be moved but can't make the second new word :roll:

Same for Type F !!!

Also how to answer Type D, Type M etc ... as you have to mark two answers and what if one answer is wrong ?

Sorry for asking silly Q but just want to be absolutely sure before I say anything to my daughter !! :?

They only mark the letter that moves over to make the 2 new words. Often there will be more than 1 letter that moves over, the child needs to ensure that the letter chosen will fit into the second word. If my children cannot see the new word they must write out all possibilities until they find it!

Child has to mark the missing 3 letter word.

Both words must be corrrect, no half marks.
