When I asked my daughter how tough she found the pretest "it was pips". Lunchtime on Saturday I asked the same question "very hard". Even the maths wiz in her class found it difficult too.

Is there a reason why the two maths papers were polar opposites?

Apparently the VR was quite normal and no real problem.

Hi Nesbit,

Welcome to the forum. :D

I can't comment about the test this year as I've not been involved but when DC sat a couple of years ago he didn't notice much difference between the maths papers.

As the maths tests are written by the school I had always assumed they would use papers from previous years. :?

Perhaps someone else who sat this year will comment.

Hi there

My DS said that the maths test was harder but that he felt more confident with his answers so I am not sure what to make of that!

He finished the maths and guessed the last two VR. A few people I have spoken to have said that they guessed 10-15 of the VR and a friend of mine said her DD guessed the last 15 VR last year and still came 180th in the list (is now at CH). I think there must have been a lot of lucky guesses?
