I am new on here. I have 2 boy at AGSB in year 9 and 11 and a boy in primary in year 5.
We want him to go AGSB with his brothers but he will sit AGSB, Sale, Stretford and Manchester Grammar. The nearest schools are Stretford and Manchester but my son's have done well at AGSB.
I can't believe how fast it's come round and I worry because it sounds like the exams have changed a lot and there are a lot more kids that do the exam now.
He has a tutor twice a week and does alot of study but not sure about the CEM test for Sale as the tutor says it is very difficult to prepare for. Does anyone now any good books?
My son had studied for CEM and passed it this year. He had sat for the Berkshire/ Slough school. He did take tuitions. But from what I have experienced is, for CEM preparation your child will have to work on his vocabulary. He can read classic novels, or any good fiction / non fiction books and make his own word bank. CEM papers are challenging in terms of time as well. Also doing Bond and CGP books of Verbal / Non verbal, English & Maths will help. A very good vocab has helped a lot.
