First of all thank you to all of you who have contributed to the tiffin topics in the forum, they have been invaluable over the last year for me and my ds.
This is my first post, after the Tiffin exam last week.
My question to any other parents in this situation and to parents who've already been there (...!), is it possible to still get in to tiffin if the NVR test was so tough (a few of my fellow parents also thought the same) & quite a few questions needed to be guessed...??
Thank you in advance!

I think you should not worry. If they were tough, then possibly tough for all. So, everyone who wrote the exam have equal chances of getting into this school.
Good Luck.

The test is normalised so you don't need to get all the questions right.... you just need to get more right than the majority.

Indeed if the test was simple then everyone would get them all right and it would not be possible to differentiate.

Guessing/luck/performance on the day are all factors but hopefully overall those more able at NVR will on average get more right than those who are not.

It's a brutal process. Thankfully we have a few years off before DD2. (and in case you ask... we haven't started preparing yet! :D )

Regards
SVE
