We are trying to prepare DS for Reading Boarding; can anyone tell me the format this year? Is it still MCQ for reasoning and Maths , comprehension and extended writing for English? And how did all your DS find the exams?
Any help will really be appreciated..
Boarding and day exams are different format,
Reading School Admissions Numbershttp://www.readingschool.reading.sch.uk ... arders.pdf
The admission number for Year 7 boarding places is a maximum of 12.
The entrance tests will be taken at Reading School.
There will be three tests each of length approximately one hour.
They will cover i) Reasoning [verbal and/or non-verbal (abstract)],
and iii) Mathematics.
Only the reasoning test will be multiple choice. All tests will build on current good practice adopted in primary schools and
the English and mathematics tests will be based on the National Curriculum. They will be tests for which no additional
preparation is necessary. No past papers are available and no further information with respect to the tests will be given.
Allowance will be made for a pupil’s age.
