I have just been advised that The Newstead test was easier than both the bexley and Kent test!
Can that be possible???
I think it depends on what they mean by "easy". My DD got 80/80 for VR in Kent but found the NW VR, comparitively not that easy. But then again she is very critical of herself and would say it wasnt easy, even if she couldnt do a couple of questions.
But yes the NVR was definitely said to be easier than Kent.
I say the easier a paper is , the more chance to make careless mistakes.
As far as I am aware the NW exam is one with unpredictable results. Lst year, DC's who had done exceptionally well in Bexley and Kent didn't get the sufficient scores for NW compared to DC's who didnt pass Kent/Bexley who got high enough scores for NW. So I guess its waiting till March to find it out!
