I know it's a bit late for me to panic now, but the Sutton Grammar website says Saturday's eligibility test will be "a reasoning paper, which will be mostly verbal reasoning, but with some maths questions included." There is also an English paper.

From the description of the reasoning paper, do you think it's safe to assume that there won't be any non-verbal reasoning? I would guess that the maths questions would be along the lines of those routinely found in VR papers as opposed to anything more complicated, but it's all a bit vague in relation to the NVR. If it's just a VR paper, then why not say so, why call it a "reasoning paper."

It's not hugely important as we have covered NVR for another exam, but it would be nice for DS to have a bit more of an idea about what to expect.

Anyone got any more of an idea? :D

Good Luck to your son, 2outof3. If mocks have anything resembling real one, Sutton Mock test included few NVR questions as well, according to my DC.

Thanks tiffinboys,

I suppose it's best to just tell DS just to expect everything and anything and just get on with it! Hopefully there won't be anything on there that he hasn't seen before.......

Good luck to your DS too. :D

At least with Sutton Grammar the results will be with us less than a week after the test (by 11th October) - barely time to blink!

Hi 2outof3,

My DS sat the entrance exam last year and the VR paper did contain NVR questions.

Good luck to your DS!

Does any one know how long each section is?
Sutton Grammar have been vague about the exam on Saturday. I know there is a reasoning paper (VR,NVR and maths) and an English paper consisting of Comprehension and grammar, spelling and punctuation. If i am wrong, can anyone correct me please.
