Any feedback from your boys about the second stage exam yesterday? I am curious to find out how the other boys did.
My DS couldn’t complete three maths questions and some comprehension questions.

I am under the impression that some of the maths questions are formulated in such a way that they only could be completed by a few candidates who would understand what the question was about, i.e know the definition of the subject matter.

In my previous experience from three years ago not completing all maths questions does not prevent form getting a pass mark.

My DS couldn't complete the maths paper. He left four of the questions but finally the tension is gone.

Please be careful - some children may not have sat their stage 2 yet.

Whilst they say there are no trick questions as such... these tests contain some of the hardest questions for the brightest brains in the country... usually at the end of the paper.
I advised DS to leave out those ones set by over enthusiastic maths masters :lol:
