HI My son is preparing for the Kent and Shepway Test o Oct 2021. He is doign well in reasoning and maths, but comprehension is a weaker subject.

I am currently working through the CGP 10 Min Comprehension tests and his scores are low - however, I actually feel these are very hard and ambigious. Can i check with anyone if this is the best resource to prepare for Kent and Shepway tests, or whether perhaps Bond is differnt from teh CGP books?

Just keen not to demoralise him (and me), if we are working at the wrong level of comprehension

thank you

DD had this issue. We did the short comprehension tests and they helped a bit but realistically the best thing was talking about the news and how they interpreted what was going on, general reading and getting them to explain and summarise the story, then also about empathy situations in everyday life, ask them how they perceived someone might be feeling.

The comprehension elements highlighted to us that the adults who set these questions do not experience life the same way as a ten or eleven year old child! Trying to bridge the divide between that experience is easier once you know there can be a disconnect and more explanation is required, especially about emotions and empathy.
