I was wondering if anyone could clarify something for me please?
I believe there is a Z type question on every VR paper.
As these are such long questions, do they carry more marks than the short questions?
If they only carry one mark surely it is better to tell my child to skip this question, circle the question number and IF he has time left at the end to go back to it?
This way he has the opportunity of doing several shorter type questions in the same time and the chance of gaining more marks.
I was told it is unlikely that most children manage to finish the VR paper in the allocated time anyway, so perhaps this is the best method.
However, if the Z questions carry more than one mark, this blows my theory out of the window!
Would appreciate your thoughts please.
PS I would never tell him to skip any other sections, just this one type of question.
