The CSSE have confirmed that the papers are different for the second sitting. They are written by the same people and will undergo the same standardisation process.
Approximately 200 each year take the second paper.

I'm guessing we should probably avoid specifics about the first paper anyway.

The CSSE are missing a trick. I for one would gladly have paid for packs of second sitting papers! :wink:

Perhaps to avoid controversy, "but that paper was much easier", etc.

Don't forget that's for all of the schools that take from the 11+ which is about 10 schools.last year there was a little bit of an overflow due to numbers so I know a girl who did it late but wasn't ill.She was just allocated that date.

Oh I see, that makes a difference then. I am as jittery as I was before the test as are a few others on here I think. :oops: I wish I could hibernate until March. It seems such a long way off.

That feeling gradually fades, only to come back with a vengeance in March.
