Hi

Is there a post from previous years discussing the format of the stage 2 Tiffin Girls test?

i am aware that it consists of English and Maths..

...just need to know if for English there are choices - eg, choose from descriptive, persuasive, creative, complete the story etc

...previous comprehension test - short text - long text?

...do the school usually give the girls ??mins of reading time?

is any one able to let know what has come up in the previous years?

for Maths what types of tricky questions to prepare dd for etc

thank you

The school has not released any specifics.
Quote:
It will consist of three tests which will assess numeracy and literacy: one test of
mathematics, one test of reading and one test of writing. Please see the next section for
more information

Quote:
The Stage 2 test is written by The Tiffin Girls’ School and is designed to test the core subjects of Maths and English.
Past papers are not available. The Stage 2 test is made up of three tests: one test each of mathematics, reading and writing.
The Stage 2 test is appropriate for students expected to achieve Level 5 in Maths and English in their SATs exams.

I imagine there are 450 girls sitting around kitchen tables during the half term working their way through English Comprehension papers! :shock:
Regards
SVE

I guess only those whose DDs are sitting exam this time are visiting this site, which means your competitors at the end of the day. Better just spend time with DD in going through many different type of papers.......... :?

There was a picture with the forest...Girls had to write anything (essay) about it. DD doesn't want to talk about what she did for 11+ exams and i believe she simply can't remember, because there were many exams and tests after that. It is all mixed up now....

Thank you Ladymuck, it's just Tiffin Girls school hasn't mentioned anything this year in specifying any particular number. Made me wonder whether it's much more or less than last year's number.
I'm thinking maybe they will disclose this information when they send out details about the second stage.

Thought I might as well revive this thread,

Could anyone remember, the was a composition paper, I think 2012, about or a picture of a website and the girls were asked to critique the website? Was that TGS or Nonsuch?
