With just six months to go (eeek!) I thought it would be a good time to start this thread. Bromley/Bexley seems to be very quiet the moment, especially when compared to our neighbours in Kent
Is anyone else preparing for Bexley/Bromley (St O's or NW)/Kent for this September? Have any of you changed your minds in view of the proximity of the test dates/high scores required for Kent this year?
DS will be sitting all 3. Things seem to be going ok so far. We're most of the way through Bond 10-11 maths and VR and he's completed the NVR book for that age group. He generally scores 90+% (with the very occasional 100%
) We are without a tutor at the moment so I'm DIY-ing and it seems to be working out. As he seems ok with the VR question types, I've started working on his vocabulary using Patricia's "Important Words for VR" list and the First Aid for English book. We've also been doing the Bond 10 minute English tests.
Bribery seems to be helping
He gets 1 pound for every paper he completes and 30p for each 10 minute paper. The money's put in a jar which he can have when he finishes all the tests.
How is everyone else getting on?
