Am interested to know how tutors have reacted to the changes in the test with regards to what they are doing for children taking it this year and also what those parents with tutors are doing.
Although the new test it is being touted an 'untutorable' I think that means it is harder to 'tutor to pass' as may have been the case with the old test. My child will not take the test until 2015 but was already starting to think about tutors for year 5 but am now wary.

We try to keep the forum as safe as possible - we don't allow tutors or tutoring organisations to be openly recommended, because it attracts posts with fake recommendations ('dodgy' advertising solely designed to solicit business on the internet).
It is also not unknown for unscrupulous competitors to 'plant' posts seeking to denigrate the opposition!
Genuine recommendations from forum members by PM only (private message) are permitted - but be aware of the possibility that someone who appears to be a 'helpful parent' offering advice may not be all they seem! There could be an ulterior motive.
Always treat recommendations from unknown persons with great caution.
However, we have many long standing members (check carefully the date of joining and number of posts) who make a very valuable contribution to the forum. If you receive a private recommendation from one of them, it could be worth considering.
Please let us know if you think anyone is abusing the system by soliciting for business or 'spamming'.
