Perhaps we shouldn't discuss the content of the exam or the individual papers in too much detail as those who missed yesterday's exam through illness will be taking it at a later date.
I don't want to sound bossy
but I am pretty certain I have read in previous years that they use the same exam for later dates and that board members are told to keep the exam contents secret.
I agree about the surprise amount of multiple choice questions. My DS prefers standard format ones but then with so many boys taking the test, I do not blame the school for wanting to simplify the marking schedule (especially as they are one of the school that give us early results). It was a very long day - much longer than we expected. DS arrived for the 1:20pm session on time and the boys were dismissed at 6pm (parents who had been waiting an hour cheered at this point!). DS came home and hoovered up dinner - by this stage he hadn't eaten for nearly 7 hours! He definitely had a dazed look about him
