given an infinite amount of time to do NVR most children can get near 100%, NVR is testing how agile and quick the mind is in appling a limited number of rules to a problem .
with my son we found a kind of law of diminishing returns at about 90% +, more practice made little difference,
what we did do was to reduce the ave time per question from 30sec to 25 secs or even 20sec to increase the time pressure,at this stage, I would say your child is bang on target for the most competitive U.K schools IMO, maybe it's the time to up the ante. Good luck
