I am in the process of preparing my ds for the writing task. Does anyone have any previous titles used in Kent in previous tests? I can this way get an idea as to what they ask on the day please. Also, any tips would be great! thanks

Not sure about the titles, but include several types of punctuation, start sentences in different ways, complex sentences and rich vocabulary.

Thank you for your replies, it's something to work with. Don't want to waste much time on this but want him to be a bit prepared at least. If anyone does know anymore titles from last year that would be great. thanks

Please remember that the essay is only read if the child has not passed the test AND their headmaster decides to appeal. I would spend more time in preparing for the other parts of the test. Having said that, my son really enjoys writing, so we did spend a fair bit of time on this. He did very well on his SATs as a result and was very pleased about that.
Here is an old thread about it and if you search there is an even older one with a list of subjects.

You can also have a look at this one. It's quite old, but it will give you an idea.
