I have been hearing rumors that some children that have taken the mock 11+ at DHSG/PHSG had already been through the papers with their tutors and consequently in some cases managed to complete the paper within the first 15mins receiving very high marks in comparison to other years. Does anyone know if therefore the placings have been distorted in respect of the cut off placings for each school?
If it's a mock exam,how can it have any influence on placings? Does it really matter that some children have already gone over a paper taken as a mock, except where such a child gets a poor score you can assume that they won't do terribly well in the real thing (which hopefully they won't have seen before)? Or have I totally misunderstood something here?
