Greetings, new to this forum and gratefully seeking advice from those that might be able to help.
My son is sitting the 11+ in September; Kent region - we've been working through the sample papers; GL and Bond.
I'm slightly (I hope only slightly!) unsure as to the exact format of the three tests he wil sit. Comparing the Kent.gov website with the elevenplusexams (head for success) website, there are slight discrepancies.
NVR - Kent.gov says "about 40 minutes", 11+exams says "40 minutes". How can any exam be "about" any time limit? My conclusion is that the exam consists of six sections of six minutes each, each section being 12 marks. The total time is 36 minutes, though practically this takes "about 40 minutes" because of the explanation of the practise questions at the start of each section. 72 marks in total. This is the same as the GL papers. CAN ANYONE CONFIRM WHETHER THIS IS CORRECT?
Verbal - 50 minutes; both websites agree. IS THIS EIGHTY QUESTIONS?
The timings, the format, and the number of questions can vary from year to year. Hence the "about".
Maths - 60 minutes according to both websites? Though the GL practise papers are 50 marks in 50 minutes?! CAN ANYONE CONFIRM THE TIME AND MARKS?
Thanks for the help; hopefully I'm not the only one slightly confused by this, and any answers can help other readers too.
I also realise there's an English one hour paper; persumably this is a piece of creative writing based upon a selection of titles they are provided?
THANK YOU! NB 95 views and no replies, does anybody know??!!
