Are GL paper harder than others (Bond, Letts, Athey) ? Are they similar to CGP and Bond CEM in terms of difficulty level?
As a rough estimation, what scores should I be looking at for selectives and superselectives ?

DCs say that GL papers were the hardest of all that they did (Bond, CGP, Letts inc.) They were scoring mid 90% in GL towards the actual exam for Kendrick, which they got into. I have no idea about scores for other schools unfortunately. I hope that helps.

According to my son, GL is harder than anything. Your DC should score around 90 for superselectives, I believe.

High 90s in GL VR/NVR/Maths....English can be a bit wobbly if she can't be bothered reading the text properly otherwise 90% is achievable there too.

Bond CEM is a bit tricky but no worries with any other commercial papers out there.

Anything above 85% (in first attempt) is good however that does not guarantee sure success - one must have the nerves and focus on the exam day. The new ambience + unfamiliar faces could bring down the scores when compared to doing the same paper at home.

Wow high 90s is impressive. With scores like that you may be very relaxed.
DD is nowhere near that for GL pack1. She has just finished pack1 and only in VR she is over 90%. Maths/Nvr is in 80s and English from 75 to 85% so far.

Completely agree. What they do on the day is most important.
I noticed scores vary from 60% to98% depending on the difficulty level of the paper so it is difficult to get any consistency level.

DO GL tests increase in level of difficulty? Is pack2 harder than pack 1.
I saw the comprehension in one of the pack2 tests and I thought it was hard. Is the actual test harder than the practice packs ?

when I tried to toil through all the posts to understand GL/NFER/Letts, I read that the recommended order to tackle the packs is from 11D (that would be pack 4) to 11A (pack 1) with Pack 1 (11A) being the hardest...
