depends on which school(s) you are aiming to go for... if the school selects only on score then it doesn't matter where you live however if it is on pass then distance as criteria then you will struggle. DD has a child in her form who came over from Netherlands - she passed well enough to get a place.

You need to have a look at what is required for the school you are considering, where are you returning to ? The schools differ in whether the exams are VR / NVR / Maths / english etc etc . No point in overdoing work on an area that is not tested!

Are you sitting the exam on 20/11/10? If so, at this late stage I would recommend concentrating on the VR as this is worth double in the exam.

The VR for the Essex 11+ is usually tough, so as many papers as possible for familiarity. The VR uses all 21 types so I would recommend downloading the Tutors papers (from the E-papers on this site) as they will arrive instantly on your desktop and order the Bright Sparks papers (from the Book Shop tab above), which will hopefully arrive in 3-4 days.

Order the last two years papers from CSSE. If you do last year's papers and a VR then total the scores (doubling VR) you should be looking for a score of approximately 140 marks.

For extra maths papers you could do some of the manchester grammar school papers (not the same format as CSSE but a good level of questions) available at this link.

If you are desperate for more papers then pm me.
