Can someone suggest the most suitable range of sample exam books for the exams taken for SWGS ?
I believe the exams are currently English, Maths, and verbal reasoning, but I'm happy to be corrected if I'm misinformed.
Welcome to the forum. Looks like changes.http://www.swgs.wilts.sch.uk/admissions.asp
News - To find out about the Consultation that is in process for 2010 Admissions Arrangements,
Selection is by means of selection tests. In a typical year candidates will need to achieve a minimum level of 75% in the entrance test to be considered for admission. Meeting the academic requirements for entry to the School is not in itself a guarantee of a place.
The childâ€™s performance in a multiple choice paper in Verbal Reasoning, Mathematics and English papers set by GL Assessment provide the main evidence of ability. There will also be a piece of extended writing to be used in borderzone cases. The scores are standardised to make allowances for the childâ€™s age and to give equal weighting to the three papers. The scores are then added together to give a final score. If this is equal to or above the cut off mark a child is deemed to be of Grammar School ability. Any child found to be of Grammar School ability would be offered the available places following the oversubscription criteria listed below.
GL is the new name for NFER.

You may need to think about starter papers and method books.
Does that help?
