Feedback from all the CEM exams this year have been that they were easy: DAO/SW Herts, HBS, Latymer, and Bucks.
Are they really easier or is it just we have a whole cohort of students that are ready for them now? DG
Exactly! Parents are not falling for the untutorable test argument. We've had to cover a wider range of materials, prepare children to work very fast, etc. Does preparation make you smarter? Some will argue that it does, as the more you learn the more brain connections you make, the more connections the faster you learn. One "measure" of intelligence these days is how fast you learn.
If, on the other hand the test was easier, then I rather have a child coming out feeling they passed and wait confidently for the results than fret for a month. We'll do the worrying!
