Post subject:  Kingston Grammar VR test

My child sat the entrance exams for kingston grammar last week and as they were telling me how the exams went they mentioned that the verbal reasoning test was the gl assessment test paper 5. They recognised the paper as we have the gl English n maths papers at home, as well as having it written on the paper too. After the test and while speaking to some of the other kids, they found out that some of them had already done the exact same paper at home. I feel like that’s unfair to use a paper that is easily available to everyone for the actual exam, as some children would know all the answers while some would be doing it for the first time. I’ve been told by a friend that since it’s an independent school there’s not much that can be done as they don’t have a board to answer to. Are they right and that nothing can be done or should I complain?

My daughter sat the test and found VR was challenging. I thought it was us who came from state school and only started practising VR the last 3 months with the tutor(we go to a group tutor as we couldnt find an 1 to 1.)What is GL assessment test paper 5? Do you have a link for the papers.( And what is paper?) Are they the 11+ books sold on amazon. My daughter couldnt recall what was the question asked however she had 7 questions non-answered, this is an exam technique issue for us.

Oh well, we also have NVR for this year couple of our favourite schools tests. I am just hoping we are not too late.
