The CSSE page states that 'There is no change to the content or format of the test papers this year.' which makes you think that there isn't a change?
If there is-it will affect everyone equally, I suppose.
I shall be so glad when it's all over and we know there results-there have been too many changes already this year. I sort of thought DC was in with a good chance of passing a year ago. Since then-the catchment has widened massively and the date has been brought forward eating into a lot of the summer holidays. If they change the marking scheme as well, that's just one more thing to battle against!
Maybe they'll write the comprehension paper in Latin this year as well, just to keep us on our toes
