Thanks Guest, I thought Mill on the Floss was hard, English is not my strong point and because I had heard that 85% was needed I was worried, so if 70 ish was ok for english what is needed for maths and VR? What VR should we be doing other that the 4 NFER papers. Any ideas would be most welcome, thanks in advance.
I was told by the Consortium that for CCH you need 85%+ on the VR - I don't think you can go lower than this score. If they have tied scored (i.e. same VR scores and same maths scores) they then look at the maths paper and the pupil that has correctly answered the more difficult questions will be placed higher. The NFER VR papers are good and they set the paper on the day so practicing them again and again is good. In terms of the maths and english, try and get hold of the past papers from the Consortium. Concentrate on the timing for the VR - the children must finish that paper to stand a chance.
