Hi everyone

Just wondered out of the 3 subjects in the Kent test - Maths, VR & NVR - which one do DC generally find the most challenging..?

Is one of the subjects more difficult than the others, ie where a lot can fall down on, therefore bringing their overal mark down.

And if there is one subject (or two), is it possible to mitigate against that with extra practice / tutoring etc..?

Many thanks
Villagedad

Villagedad, I am not from Kent but my DS is sitting the 11 plus this year. I would say it depends on the child's strengths and weaknesses.

His friends have also been preparing for the test and they all have thier favourite topics. DS's favourite is verbal least is non verbal. No need to say I need to tutor him more with his non verbal then verbal and maths. Yet his friend his strong with his maths and non verbal than verbal.

practice definitely makes a difference wih verbal and non verbal reasoning, once you know what to look for it is a lot easier.
