Also, the Grammars say a good indicator is that the child should be at least a level 5 at school by the time they sit the test.
Thats the thing, is that really a good indicator? Our son made level 5a/6 in maths at around the end of year 3 and had a test run by a secondary school maths teacher in class last week and made 6a. He's also 5s for English and Science but I think his last "written" at the end of year 4 was 4a? But is higher on reading and something else...sorry, not sure of the English side of things, I was never good at that myself
Thats why I'm more worried about this big unknown English test than the GL papers.
So based on his levels now he's 9, I would say that he "should" go to BS but its down to a few hours of tests and not years of school information.
