I have been mulling over the question of the difficulty of test papers in the last few days, as the test dates for Bucks come nearer.
Having used all of these materials, some of them twice, I would say that the approximate difficulty ranking for Bucks practice materials is (from easiest to most difficult):
- Tutors CD1
- Tutors full papers, Nos 1 - 10
- IPS full papers
- Tutors short papers, Level 3
- IPS daily papers
- Tutors full papers, Nos 11 & 12
- Learning Labs
- NFER: shop bought
( NFER practice tests
( NFER: actual test
- Bright Sparks
- Tutors Short Papers, Level 4. (Mental health warning attached )
I hope that helps, and I would be very interested in other people's views on this.
I have copied this from the verbal reasoning section where it was put up in response to a question I asked. I am interested to know if the Bucks actual Nfer tests papers would be equavilant to the Gloucs test papers in difficulty level and Patricia suggested I put the question up here. Any thoughts?
Sorry for those who are reading this twice.
