Does anybody know if the practice tests 1&2 are the same level of difficulty as the real tests i.e. are they old tests or are they no where near and only used for familiarisation as they are the same format as real test?

are these tests used in bucks schools to give parents an indication of a child's chances of passing?
thanks

Dear Blanca

There are 3 practice tests, A, 1 and 2. A is slightly easier and must be administered first. Tests 1 and 2 are of similar difficulty to the real thing. They are not old tests. I would say the vocab can be a tad more difficult.

They are not used by the schools to give parents an indication, there are merely for practice under test conditions. Schools are not allowed to use the marks for appeals either, the reason being that although they cannot be bought, they are out in the community. The tests have remained the same since infancy, many are kept by parents for use with younger siblings.
