Please note changes to the Lincolnshire tests
- these will be in Multiple Choice Format where the answers are marked on a separate answer sheet which is "read" by an optical reader for marking, instead of the answers being entered on the question paper as in Standard Format

- the verbal reasoning tests have been updated and will have more types of question and a wider pool of questions


Tests are the same for all Lincolnshire Grammars except Caistor. Pass mark is a standardised aggregate score of 220 across the two tests with no obligation to score a "pass" in either one individually.

VR Test:
As this will be the first year of the new format tests the number of questions is not known - multiple choice format tests usually require fewer questions to be answered in the time span, but I do not have any information as to the number of questions yet. Until this year there were 100 questions to be answered in 50 minutes.
Multiple Choice Format
Set by NFER
Need to know all 21 question types (as published by IPS) plus a few extras like mixed letter and number codes and "crosswords". The extra types can be found in the Susan Daughtrey books 1 to 4.
NfER has been asked to widen the pool and types of question and to update the questions to eliminate some which were felt to be too out of keeping with children's experience nowadays or were too culturally specific. Some question types like the little crossword would not lend themselves to multiple choice format so will be replaced.

NVR Test:
65 questions The number of question and timing for this year is not certain as yet
Last year , questions organised into 4 sections of 16 questions plus an extra in one of the sections. 8 minutes to complete each section.
Multiple Choice Format
Set by NFER
Same question types as are found in the NFER Nelson published practice tests.

The maximum standardised mark over the two tests is 282.
(with thanks to NorthLincs for the information)

Edited Sep 2011 to add:
In papers produced by LCC for an appeal this year the highest possible mark was noted as 286

Yes still correct for all the Consortium Schools.

Boston Grammar Schools Federation is no longer part of the Consortium though.

Are the extra type of questions that are not covered in the IPS 21, in just one of the SD books or do I have to buy all 4?!
