Thanks for your comments usa and Mike.
Hmmmmmm IPS Paper 4 - he did this one towards the end of July and forgot the 'golden rule of the house' - leave the type Z's till last !
He only managed 33/50 correct in the time and achieved 41/50 when he finally completed at about 37 minutes.
The information about The Tutors papers is invaluable - looking at them in pairs that is. I had planned to use AFN 1-8 next but might keep these in reserve and get the rest of The Tutors.
When my daughter did this two years ago, I noticed a pattern of sorts with the NFER types.
Type A, E and Z are present in both Paper 1 and 2 familiarisation then the rest are mixed - but some never (or at least rarely) appear together.
Right, that's it ! - I'm going to pour my heart out to you all in a seperate thread probably entitled "DIY 11+ !! Just look what it has done
The bit about going through the whole dictionary (Junior!) looking for words that contain a three letter word within will make you laugh (at me)
