We are doing revision in preparation for the 12+ in early April. It's going ok (but then again it went quite well for the 11+!!!)....

Did I read somewhere that the 12+ (85q's in 45min) will only cover 12/13 of the question types in the one test?

If anyone's child can remember, were they of the same standard/difficulty as the 11+ or were they harder to take into account the child being 18 months older?

Regards

Ambridge - aka 12+Elf

You are welcome to be a 12+ Elf instead!

The questions are of exactly the same standard as the 11+ - just a few more in a few minutes less.

Yes, only half the question types will feature in the test, but the problem is that you don't know which half! There will (on past performance) definitely be one Type Z question, and as always it should be left to the end.

Thinking of you - fingers crossed!

Good luck Ambridge - the other positive is that they are standardised in a different way so most children seem to improve on 11+ score by quite a lot.

Hang in there - which schools are you hoping for? Pm me if you prefer.
