Am sure we are a bit relieved with Stage 1 over. I have looked up on Sutton and Wilsons website they do not have any specimen paper for Stage 2. Having looked through forurms the one that was discussed last year did not have specific information for this.

viewtopic.php?t=58882

Any inputs from previous year's what to expect please in Math and English.

Many Thanks

In 2019, for the boys exams, the English was a writing task. They were given a passage to read and asked to write a letter about it - it was something to do with aliens. That’s all my son remembers!

The maths was open answer with some multi-part questions. Harder than the SET. My son finished but it was quite common not to I believe. The hardest ones were generally at the end.

The English is always a writing task of some kind - which can be anything from completing a story based on a starter they are given, producing a leaflet based on source info they have to read and comprehend.

When my daughter did it 3 years ago, she had to write a persuasive letter to the council arguing that they should invest more money to provide...it was either libraries or playgrounds, I can't remember!

Maths is word problems, sometimes with multiple steps.

Is there any planning time on writing of stage 2 and how long it is? Remember that somebody mentioned before there is 15 minutes for planning and 30 minutes for writing. Is it correct?

In addition, how many math questions in stage 2? 50?

Many thanks in advance.

I just asked my son this (last year’s exams). He said they were advised to spend a certain amount of time (he thinks 15 minutes sounds right) planning before beginning writing the actual task, but they weren’t then told, ‘ok, time to start writing your final piece now’; they had to manage their own time during the exam.

He doesn’t remember how many Maths questions there were.

Hi Oneoftwothings thanks for your comment.

Just one more question. Regarding writing, is there two topic which you can chose any one to write? or is there only one topic?

Thanks

Just a gentle reminder to posters not to provide any test detail as there may still be late sitters.
