I don't know anything about the English part of the paper other than it is continuous writing and only considered for borderline cases.
Can anyone enlighten me? Is there a choice of subjects and any guidelines at all or are the children just given one subject and a few sheets of blank paper?
DS is very poor at writing so we really need him in on the Verbal reasoning and maths alone, but we need to at least talk through what he is going to be expected to do for the english section.
DD is being given a title by the tutor and asked to write about it for 30 minutes, she has 5 minutes for planning.
