Yes, BS is NFER... but our DS has been doing Bonds as a kind of general preparation. I have gleaned from this forum that the school uses all 21 types of Verbal reasoning question.. I don't really know what this means but I know the NFER papers cover 15 types of question.
As the Bond papers cover every kind of question, I thought it was a safe bet to have a go at them. Currently we are doing nothing however!! So we will be persuading him to do a few NFER's in September for exam format practice.
I'm not sure if he will get in.. DS is also at a State primary and they say his maths is excellent but his English might let him down. The school won't tell us what his test scores are so this is frustrating. How are you supposed to know what to do?
I agree about the palpitations... i think I may need beta blockers by the time he takes his A-levels
