Hi, Please can anyone pour in their thoughts - if these papers are the true reflection of CEM Papers for Bucks?

These are the easiest of the lot.

Next easiest is Letts.

Then Bond. Although it's very hit and miss. Some parts are harder.

CGP the closest. But no way to gauge for sure.

Hi Folks,
I am very new - second posting - and my first was the same question on a different thread!
I am confused as the style of the questions in the Bond CEM test packs requires the children to write the answers...but I thought the Bucks test was all multiple choice. Can anyone clarify this?
Thanks

Anyone?
I'm not asking whether the papers are easier/harder...I am asking whether the format follows the Bucks exam.
A big part of me doing this with my son is to ensure he understands the question styles, but there doesn't seem much pint using the Bond CEM papers if they are not representative of the Bucks CEM exam.
Before Christmas I was happy to use them as I figured any practice was better than none, but now we are about to settle into a proper schedule I would prefer not to use question styles that are not representative.
Does anyone know whether the Bucks exam is all multi choice or not?
TIA

The Buck familiarisation paper is the sure fire way to know the format. Last year it was multiple choice. English, Maths and NVR.

According to this section
https://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/schoo ... re-11-plus
It is.
As Northdad said, take a look at familiarisation tests

here it is: looks like no change:

Perhaps start with Letts. I think that's the one that provides an audio recording instructions to move from section to section. And it's easier than CGP and First Past the Post.
