Does anyone know - Will any of the question types be repeated on the second paper that were on the first paper?
We can work out which ones were not on the first paper, but wondered if any are repeated? :?:
Thanks

There will be two more type Z questions - These always appear on both papers. Two other types will be repeated, but there is no way of knowing which these will be.

Is your child really SO sure of which ones came up in paper 1, and are you really SO sure of the accuracy of their memory that you can confidently predict which ones are still to be tested?

Personally, I would (and did) assume all/any types could come up in paper 2, to be on the safe side.

My daughter has a great memory so she is sure about most of them but as per your advice we will just take the questions as they come up on the next test, and she will do one more practice test this weekend so as to keep the momentum going and keep the methods fresh in her mind.

We can confidently predict a few of the types due to come up that weren't in the first test but for obvious reasons cannot say on this site!

Hi Guest

Do you mean that your son did his first practice paper (called Paper A) or his second one - called Paper 1. (Designed to confuse, of course!!)

Paper A is generally thought of as easier than Papers 1 & 2. However, nerves at doing real papers can really play a part in this, so don't panic.

On telling your son, only you can judge how he will react. Some children will be spurred on to new heights by a poor result this time, whilst others will fall into a pit of despair.

If he is at risk of the latter, consider being "economical with the truth" on how he scored. I have done that in the past - just added a couple of marks - and it has worked very well. :wink:

Dear Guest

7 wrong on paper 1 is very good indeed.

Tests 1 and 2 are of a similar difficulty to the real test. Test A is easier.

This should have been explained to you. I would now administer Test A followed by test 2.

Good Luck.

If it helps my daughter got 4 wrong in Paper A , 8 wrong in Paper 1 and 3 wrong in Paper 3.
She said that the real first test paper was easier.
