Hello
We are fairly new to the whole process, just found out that Newstead Wood has its own exam? I thought the selection was based on the Kent exam.
For those of you who prepare your daughters for newstead, what materials are best?
We have been using Bond and a few Letts so far, also reading a lot for the vocabulary. SHe tried to do a test paper in VR yesterday (she just started year 5) and got 61/80 correct. Last question - is GL Assessment paper at the level of newstead wood exam? We just bought pack 1 and will start working on it soon, but I am not sure of the level required.

Many thanks for yourt time

Newstead is in Borough of Bromley and sets its own test. There are two papers,verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning. The tests are set by GL assessment.

So the best materials to work form are GL Assessments then?

I would leave the GL papers till nearer the end. At this stage you need to work on technique, plug any gaps and work on vocabulary.
