 Post subject: IPS Daily practise
PostPosted: Tue Sep 25, 2007 2:03 pm 
My child is finding the IPS papers and daily practise books very hard to do. She is ok with the NFER Tests, infact she enjoys doing the NFER. I am worried also a bit confused, what is the main difference between the two and how important is it for her to be able to do the IPS. She is July born and with NFER she manages to get 70+ questions right. IPS 30 min she has never been able to finish the paper on time.

The Bucks exam contains 21 types of question.

NFER papers contain only 15 types.

You need to use IPS for the extra 6 types, referred to as HIKNOS. Do a search of the forum for HIKNOS IPS NFER and you will find lots of information.

Dear duffymoon,

Thank you very much for your prompt reply. It all makes since to me now. I hope I haven't left it too late but we will concentrate on the HIKOS. I have been a silent reader of this forum over the pass months and have learnt alot from it.
I would like to thank everyone involved!

Dear Guest

HIKNOS as identified by IPS can also be found as question types 16-21 on The Tutors Demo...

Thanks Patricia,

I am thinking of buying/downloading the CD. Hope it is not going to confuse my child. I can use the CD again for my next one currently in year 4. By the way thanks for all the advise, I never had to ask for anything all the information has always been here!

Dear Guest

I see the CD as a great asset to the 11 plus for Bucks, if used as part of the whole process.

However, with the tests next week I am inclined to keep to pen and paper tests. Have you got any left, if so which ones?

Patricia

Dear Patrica,

I have IPS (Purple) 10 tests, Bright Spark pack 1, Nfer VR 4 Tests, also daily practise book 1 and 2.. She has gone through them, apart from these I haven't got anything new. I tried to buy Bright Spark pack 2 but it was out of stock! (We also have SD books 1 - 7 but following your advise stopped using them)

Personally I would consider looking at the 3 practice tests done in school and identifying types found difficult - use the free download to practise these types.
