I'm afraid that page of our website is pretty woefully out of date, and I have been meaning to edit it for some time now. :oops: A New Year's resolution is in order!

BHS: "The test will last approximately 75 minutes, including time for the examples and instruction. This will be a single test, with no break. The test will assess verbal ability, numerical ability and non-verbal ability. The test will be taken as an online test, using a computer – this will not be a paper based test." Test set by Bucks CC.

WHS: "Curriculum-based tests in English, Mathematics, Science and a Modern Foreign Language. All tests set by the school."

Thank you, Sally-Anne and yolo. I suppose we will just have to practise as for 11+ and hope for the best! If anyone can offer us any more help that would be great.

For WHS I'd look at some old KS3 test papers because they'll want your DD to be level 6 by next summer.

Old papers for English, maths and science on

Good idea, thank you for the link, we will go through some of these papers before the WHS test which is at the end of Jan.

There are mark schemes too - I'd suggest the level 5 to 7 papers.

Hi Sally Anne,
My daughter is taking the 13+exams to WHS in January and they have sent us a familiarisation sheet similar to CEM tests. Does the 12+ and 13+ exam formats differ then?

I doubt it very much!

I would assume that the 12+/13+ tests are very similar, and possibly the same, but with a different pass mark.
