Congrats for all those got places and good luck for those in waiting lists,
Thanks for Ladymuck and others for giving brilliant info on 2013 SET, however if any one can shed a bit a more information on 2014 SET, it will be very helpful. I assume children goes completely blank without knowing each year how SET is done.
If we want to give a home made mock SET, what would be the content recipe for english and maths -Appreciate any thoughts!
for instance, english- approx 70 questions for 45 min
2 comprehension ( is it A4 reading page each with how many mc questions)
1 cloze passage (around 15 questions)
synonym/antonym/homonym (approximately how many)
SPAg ( what is expected., e.g. is it as we see in KS2 SPAg tests, if so how many and whether it
is a level5-6)
Maths 50 questions-45 min ( known from Ladymucks post)
Would it be better giving problem solving multistep ones ( i assumed these kind goes with individual school tests) or singe step problems covering mainly numbers or is a mixed element from all major maths headings like Numbers, data handling , shapes and measurement. For instance,
30 numbers topic ( mainly -fraction , %, decimal with all operations)
5 data handling
Sorry for the long and puzzling questions.
Any ideas or thoughts would be much appreciated.
