Our DS and DD both sat the old test and went on to Grammar school, so as parents we were very familiar with the old style 11+ test, but unfortunately it's all change now
Our youngest DS has just started year 5 and will be taking the new 11+ in September 2015.
With the old test we were able to get DS and DD to sit quite a lot of mock tests under timed test conditions, but I believe the new test is quite different, in that it is broken down into timed sections and the children can't go back to previous sections and finish a question they might have missed or check their answers. I am also informed that during the test a CD plays with a voice telling them when to start and stop each section. Is this right ? I guess to try and replicate test conditions, we'll have to sit there while they do the test, telling them when to start and stop each section ?
Also, from what I can see only 2 CEM style mock test papers are available to purchase (CGP). Surely there are more ? With the old test we were able to source quite a lot of mock papers.
Thanks for any advice.
