Dear mums and dads,
Finally after the long wait the Sutton SET got over yesterday. I was stunned seeing the long queues at Wilson's yesterday. My DS finished maths and was quite confident with his answers, however wasn't sure of some answers in English. Just wondered how the rest of the kids felt. Super nervous about the results next tuesday. Checked if there was a thread already discussing yesterday's exam. Couldn't find one, so thought of starting this.

Please feel free to share your DS and DD felt yesterday's paper was :)

Please don't mention specific details when replying as there may be late sitters still to take the test.
Thank You

My DD finished the English paper but only got about half way through the maths, so who knows how it will pan out. We had thought maths was her strong suit :roll:

English format was similar to SET mock exam, but Maths paper was bit tougher than expected for my DS.

Don't know how it will be, anyways the wait is not longer, 25th will know it :roll: :roll:

Can't wait for 25th!!! I wonder is there any specific time for the email to arrive! I sure wont sleep the night before.

On a different note is there a catchment area for Wilson,Wallington and Sutton schools for boys? It is slightly confusing on the website as it says about distance only when there is a tie!

The schools all have their own admissions policies. If the policy for a particular school says that distance is only used in the event of a tied score then that is what happens.

I think Wilsons allocates most (possibly all) of its places based on score in the test, but Sutton I think has two streams, one for those within a postcode-based catchment and one without - in each of these streams the boys are ranked in order of the test and again if there's a tie for last place the closest one wins. Can't remember the rules for Wallington. But I do remember that they are all pretty clear on how they rank applicants.

My son did not complete the maths :(
He said there wasn't enough time for the maths but too much time for the english!

my boy said maths was tricky, around 2 to 3 questions were tough but he could manage to finish it. English was easy.

i know there is no pass marks but any idea about what percentage it is safe ??
