Hi, I have stumbled across this fab website when looking for information about the scoring system for Urmston Grammar. I received the test day instructions yesterday and was hoping that there would be details on there but there aren't.

I'm completely new to 11+ and cant make sense of the 355 pass mark. How do I find out what it is out of and what each question is worth. The info that I know is that there are 56 English questions, 50 maths and 40 nvr.

I did wonder if each question was worth 3 marks and therefore the total is 438, but this would mean that the test favours students that are stronger in English and then Maths. Is this correct?

Thanks in advance! :?

You can't find out how much each question was worth because the score will be standardised.
You won't know what percentage is required to get a specific score until all the results have been collated and standardised against the average which will be 100.
