I'm here! I'm intrigued that Ed did a practice test at school. We live in Central (not South) Warks, so we have just been sent a "standard NFER" paper - one we already had from Waterstones!
Please can I ask what sort of practice Ed is getting?
It would be great if there were a few more of us to "band together in adversity!"
We are East Warks I think. Rugby catchment
To reply: having just quizzed Edward, it seems the school have done at least ten practise tests with them - not advising them how to approach answering the tests etc - giving them virtually exam conditions to plough through them. Some tests of 80 questions and some of 100 apparently but edward is quite scatty so don't hold me to it!!
regarding the practise test that was sent...we had that one all ready also.
I didn't realise that schools were allowed to give children that many hours worth of practise but I cannot really complain. Edward is doing really well at school but coming home stressed as anything.
