Does anyone else find that the answers to the multiple choice English questions are not always clear cut ?
Yes. The Nfer-Nelson English papers have more scope for criticism/argument than the others. I have found that sometimes their choice of word defintions, for example, is either wrong, IMHO, or requires a ludicrously fine distinction to be made between possible meanings.
This is to some extent unavoidable in English though.
As a result, my DC's scores are low in English compared to the other NFER papers - Maths, Non Verbal & Verbal.
Has any one else found this ?
Yes. My daughter regularly scored lower on English papers than VR or M. (We didn't have to do the NVR stuff, luckily - now there's a subject that open to intepretation ..)
