I'm looking for a tutor which comes highly recommended by people who might have used him/her for my son who is year 5. We haven't decided which school to go for from BRG/CRG (I believe we can only go for one). Would appreciate any guidance.

Sent you a pm

You are correct you need to decide CRGS and BRGS exams are on the same date

If you are out of catchment for CRGS they need to score highly as the out of catchment places are allocated in score order. The school advised for 2016 entry approx 100 places went to in catchment and 50 OOC.

Do you have any idea about the percentage required for CRG if you are out of catchment. I've been told GL assessment papers are the closest to the real thing would
You agree with that? I haven't started using them but have used bond books.

Anecdotally about 85-90% but depends how hard paper is and strength of those sitting OOC. Bulk of places go to in catchment children.

Yes GL are the most similar to the test. There is an 11+ practice papers pack 1 and pack 2 for english, vr and maths. 4 papers in each pack so 24 practice papers in total, each takes 50 minutes.

DC did them over the summer before the test. Don't do them too early. Also did some CGP practice tests, they seemed a bit harder than GL.

Also used Letts 10 mins books.
