[color=red]The kind lady at the csse has just confirmed that the late takers (including my son) will be taking different papers for the 11+ test in a couple of weeks, she then went on to say that the papers would be weighted in the same way and be of the same format. needed this clarified as some of the comments on here (everyone has their own opinions i know) were missleading and this has worried my son and i, plus many other late takers. Best wishes to all the late takers sitting the 11+ soon.[/color]
Just to be clear, they will be weighted using the same method not the same numbers. i.e. if the late sitters get a an extract from Janet and John and get 100%, you wouldn't expect the result to have the same weighting as the English paper from last Saturday. Be careful, don't think because your child avoided Saturdays paper they've got a better chance, they haven't, they've got exactly the same chance that they would have had, had they sat on Saturday.
Best of luck.
