My yr 6 daughter has just decided she wants to try for Parmiters. We hadn't even been considering this route as have always had an excellent catholic secondary in mind. A rule change has now meant we can put that school second & still get in, so my daughter has decided to try for Parmiters.
She ticks all the boxes on paper - level 5 in year 5, G&T etc, but has not been tutored at all. Her current primary school won't help prepare her.
Best of luck to you and your daughter! I would recommend some familiarization and practice with verbal reasoning tests (sounds like she's OK with maths). The practice materials the consortium send out are ludicrously inadequate. The tests will be standard format, from NFER, who provide a small number of familiarization papers. Athey papers can also be used for practice.
