I contacted AGGS a couple of days ago about next years requirements. Admissions said they thought it unlikely to change from NVR before next year although they would like to move to English when they can. I suggest everyone covers all 4 areas for both schools to be secure.
Our son's school ran a sort of exam class but focussed on the changed version of the exam and had a mad couple of months from June onwards when they realised the change would not be made
We're kicking ourselves a bit as our son has always been good at comprehensions yet he struggled with NVR which is all about 7 or 8 techniques which can be picked up with a bit of practice. He got there toward the end but was probably not as proficient as he could have been with a few more months or so
Best to cover all bases and see what happens
Will be interesting to see if there are any appeals based on what happened with the Alty exams and also to see what effect the change to the Sale exam providers has had
