After the Bham test last weekend and the Warks one this Saturday I'm in need of a holiday! DS is super relieved it's all over and enjoyed the uninterrupted minecraft/xbox splurge that was Saturday afternoon and all-day yesterday!
Overall he found the tests easier than we both thought he might - but I think that's mainly due to the terrifying Bond CEM practice papers that we looked at a couple of weeks ago. He definitely found the Warks papers slightly harder though. We are in Solihull so potentially could do schools in either area but being very cautious and getting him excited about local comp too.
Only found this forum a few weeks ago and only wish I'd seen it earlier - but I have DS2 who will take the tests next September so hopefully all the info will be just as useful for him and I shall be much better prepared
