Thanks Chocmum and Cindy
DS just completed the English 11+ English papers and we found that the Bond papers are more difficult.
DS averages 78 in the first set of NFERs and 83 in the second set (5,6,7,8), however in the Bond (first 4 papers), his average is only 74%.
He has only done the tests once and wont be doing them again (I know some do, but I don't see much benefit, as he remembers the answers anyway!).
In the last 3-4 papers he has been scoring higher. He still makes on 3-5 silly mistakes!! In recent tests, he has managed to complete the tests in 42/43 minutes (inc checking) - but having seen his silly mistakes, I think he needs to check for a bit longer!
Maths, he finds NFER a slightly harder than Bond, his first Bond was 78% - with 10 silly mistakes!! In papers 2,3,4 he averages 96% - Average for all 4 tests (including the 78% = 92%
For NFER maths, he averages 92%.
Again, in the last few papers he has managed to do a bit better. He finishes the maths with plenty of time.
Main thing now for him, is to reduce the silly mistakes!
p.s. wouldn't it be interesting if the QE English test was written this year
