Hi everyone,

I have found this forum invaluable in the past and would be grateful if anyone could tell me if there were any VR type questions in the first round literacy eligibility tests. I suspect there were, but confirmation would really help to prepare for next year.

Thank you

I have seen something similar in one of the Walsh VR books.
It gives shin, ankle, thigh, hip and several other examples to be put in order.
I have never seen that type of question anywhere else though and these don't appear in the first (pink) Walsh book.

Similar type in the Susan daughtry books.
Underline the middle one.

Ankle shoulder hip waist neck

Answer would be waist.

This type came up in the Kendrick test last year (GL VR)

Thank you for all your replies. I am really grateful. After reading that there was very little comprehension, I am inclined to think that the format is more like the CEM tests, where comprehension is tested alongside vocabulary in cloze tests for example. With so little information it is tricky.

Just realised that a poster who used to work at Sutton Boys - ' admissionslady' actually said that verbal and non- verbal reasoning elements would be included in the new eligibility tests:

viewtopic.php?f=30&t=23917

So I think that answers a lot of questions.

I think people have been cautious about revealing any test details in case late sitters are given an alternative date. I don't think that applies to the SET though.

The SET format seems to have thrown up a few surprises. I wonder if it will follow the same format in future years or whether it will be varied year on year?
Nonsuch for example have 3 different options for their English papers and presumably therefore 3 different test formats they choose from. Candidates only know a few days before whether they are getting the short, medium or long paper. I have seen a lot of posts about CEM in relation to tutor-proof tests this year but don’t really know what they entail. My impression was they test speed as much as anything else?
