From Tiffin Girls website

Quote:
Stage 2 testing will take place on Saturday 8 December 2012 and will include three tests which will assess numeracy and literacy: one each of mathematics, reading and writing. These tests will be set and marked by The Tiffin Girls’ School and set at an appropriate level of challenge to determine the offer of places at the school and will be guided by the content of the Primary National Curriculum. For guidance only: the level of challenge of these tests will be appropriate for applicants anticipated to achieve Level 5 at the end of Year 6.

tnx tiffinboys ....cos few of my friends said me that its two differ...paper but My DS said that he saw the both schools logos on the actual test paper ... because generally looking bright girls have scored lower marks than boys, therefore those parents believe that they have two separate papers....i don't really know what's the truth .

I think that even if raw score for boys and girls of similar age are same, the standardized score may be different.
