Can anyone tell me whether the tests are NFER or another type, and whether they are multiple choice or standard. I am asking for a colleague without access to the internet.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The VR for Ilford County is Multiple Choice and not the Standard type.

Ilford county use the multiple choice version.My son had his NVR exam today.He found the 75 practice questions given at the exam centre actually harder than the real exam paper.
The real paper also had 75 questions.

I understand many of the children found the practice paper more difficult than the actual paper.

NVR started to become one of his weaker points when he attempted "harder" papers.He tells me the support and practice he received at home was the greatest help.

Hope this is useful.

my son took the test for county 4 years ago and I remember him saying the practice questions were harder. He didn't have a full practice paper then - just practice questions...things change.

I really don't know, but I would think there are two reasons myself:

1. It settles the nerves. I often wonder what is the point of the practice test being harder than the real thing; but then I wonder if it actually is or if the kids are just so terrified at the beginning that they think the practice test is really hard. When the nerves settle they may find things not so bad!

2. I guess it saves no end of appeals from parents saying, 'my child didn't know it would be like that, or like this...' In addition to this, some kids are really just thrown into the exam to 'take a chance' (Ridiculous I know, but nevertheless it happens every year) and have had no preperation whatsoever - so to them I guess the practice test is a real life-line.
