Well, the Wandsworth Test is over, this forum has been re-named and I am officially
allowed to talk about it here (thanks, moderators). Hurrah!
I thought some notes about the format etc might be helpful for parents whose children will be sitting it in future years.
:: It wasn't too difficult, nowhere near as difficult as the Tiffin exam, for example (according to my son). He, at least, encountered no words in the VR that he was unfamiliar with (unlike Tiffin and Wallington, which he found more challenging).
:: It was administered in blocks of questions, with children told when to start the next block (every 10/15 minutes, apparently).
:: Answer sheets were not removed between blocks of questions. There was, however, no time to go back and check answers from previous blocks once they had moved on.
:: At the Graveney site, children who arrived early were allowed straight in rather than having to hang around outside in the cold. This made the whole process much more pleasant. Worth turning up early to avoid queuing.
:: Most important snippet of information: the mid-morning snack was biscuits and water.
That's as much as I have been able to glean from a boy who is understandably sick to the back teeth of having to sit these ridiculous tests. And I can't say I blame him.
Thank goodness that was the last one.
Time to ceremonially burn those wretched GL Assessment books! Yee hah!
